Sizes at 1, 2, and 3 years after settlement were estimated to be ~9 mm, 23 mm, and 47 mm CL in Bristol Bay compared with 16 mm, 38 mm, and 66 mm CL at Unalaska; at Kodiak, estimated sizes of 12 mm and 42 mm were obtained for age-1 and age-2 crabs, respectively.
Within the Bristol Bay trawl survey data, a total of 24 modes were identified for both males and females <~100 mm CL, which included the modal progression of two year classes that presumably settled in 1976 and 1990.
We compared the inferred growth rate for Bristol Bay with that determined from identical models fitted to Weber's (1967) data, and with two sets of length-frequency data available for the Kodiak region (Dew, 1990; Donaldson et al., 1992) to assess whether application of these growth rates to Bristol Bay crabs is appropriate.
