Abstract

Considerable research in recent years has been invested in the basic biology, ecology, and fisheries of deep-water crabs, Family Geryonidae. These efforts have been concentrated off the southeastern United States and southwest Africa, following earlier work from the Mid-Atlantic states of the U.S. to the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Species of primary interest have been the golden crab, Chaceon fenneri, and the red crabs C. maritae and C. auinauedens. Only a fraction of recent data has been published. Yet, the many investigators and sponsoring agencies sought to foster regional comparisons, to inform the commercial fishing industry and resource agencies, and tp provide guidance for future research investments. On January 19 and 20, 1989, an invited panel of scientists, fishermen, and Sea Grant Extension faculty met in Tampa, Florida to share their results, conclusions, and latest hypotheses. This report, as a summary of workshop presentations and discussions, is simply a vehicle by which that expertise can be delivered to a broader audience. (73pp.) (Lindberg and Wenner (eds)
