About this book

King Crabs of the World is the first comprehensive reference that discusses king crab systematics, anatomy, biology, life history, behavior, and fisheries management, bringing together published information from scattered sources, including data from national reports that are difficult to access and are not in English. The text also includes a treasure trove of original data and underwater photographs that have never been published. King Crabs of the World consolidates extensive professional knowledge into a single volume that will serve as a basis for education and research for many decades to come.
