  • From the ages of 1 to 4 Alaskan king crabs form clusters of up to 500,000 individuals called pods (ref: ADW)
  • 4 zoeal stages, 1 glaucothoe stage; Experimental studies have shown that stage I zoeae need salinity above 20 ppt and temperature below 15 C; stage II zoeae required temperatures below 3 C (ref: nobanis)


  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
  • Wdj data ignored, because it seems too low
