The commercial Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) fishery in southeastern Alaska has seen an annual production averaging 1588 t over the last 30 years. The fishery is passively managed with regulations governing size, sex, and season, or “3-S” management. Regulations include a minimum size of 6.5-inches (165 mm) notch-to-notch carapace width (CW), ma...

... Juvenile crab are typically found in shallow estuarine habitats that consists of protective shell or eelgrass beds (Pauley et al. 1986). Juveniles enter the adult period around when they have reached a CW of 135 mm in SEAK (Bishop et al. 2008). ...
... Although some host species of marine nematodes have been well studied (i.e., Oncorhynchus spp., Hippoglossus stenolepis; [6,7]), the distribution and abundance of nematodes in other known hosts have received less attention. Pacific rockfish, in particular, represent an important fishery resource in the northeast Pacific [8,9]. Although there are many studies that have specifically focused on rockfish [8], few quantitative studies of nematode parasites of rockfish [10,11] and cod are available in recent times and from one geographic location, and none are available from the southwestern Gulf of Alaska near Kodiak Island [1]. ...
... Bristol Bay red king crab is largely considered to be the most studied BSAI crab stock and employs a stair-step harvest strategy that reduces exploitation rate on mature male abundance based on mature female abundance and ESB thresholds ( Zheng et al. 1997). The Bering Sea snow crab harvest strategy includes a sliding control rule in which the exploitation rate on mature male biomass depends on the current-year estimate of total mature biomass (i.e., mature male biomass plus mature female biomass) relative to the long-term average of total mature biomass ( Zheng et al. 2002). The Pribilof Islands blue king crab harvest strategy employs a threshold for opening the fishery based on total mature biomass (Zheng and Pengilly 2003). ...
