Callinectes sapidus, the blue crab, is a bottom-dweller found in a variety of habitats ranging from the saltiest water of the gulf to almost fresh water of the back bays. Especially common in estuaries, this species ranges into fresh water, and may be found offshore. An epibenthic omnivore, that is active and abundant in shallow habitats (Ref.

).Longevity was estimated from a population of blue crabs in Chesapeake Bay (Ref. ).Benthopelagic (Ref. ).Hatching occurs in mouths of estuaries and shallow marine waters, development of larvae progresses in the ocean, followed by migration of megalopae and young crabs back into estuarine.

A 3-year histological study of disease prevalence in blue crabs, Callinectes sapidus, dredged from 31 sites within Maryland portions of Chesapeake Bay during autumn and winter revealed the presence of many diverse parasites and symbionts.

A large number Synopsis of principal diseases of the blue crab crabs exhibited hemocytic infiltration Callinectes sapidus book by: The blue crab's scientific name, Callinectes sapidus, is from Latin and Greek: calli, beautiful; nectes, swimmer; and sapidus, savory-beautiful, savory swimmer.

Like insects, blue crabs have stalked compound eyes and can see in almost every direction at once. The blue crab is so named because of its sapphire-tinted claws. Its shell, or carapace, is actually a mottled brownish color, and mature females have red highlights on the tips of their pincers.

Callinectes sapidus is a decapod crab of the swimming crab family Portunidae. The genus Callinectes is distinguished from other portunid crabs by the lack of an internal spine on the carpus (the middle segment of the claw), as well as by the T-shape of the male abdomen. Blue crabs may grow to a carapace width of 23 cm ( in).

sapidus individuals exhibit sexual dimorphism. Blue crabs, Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, are one of the most valuable commercial fish- eries in Chesapeake Bay. The Maryland landings were 38 million pounds, valued at $3 1 million (Maryland Department of Natural Resources, ).

Blue crab landings fluctu- ate yearly (Holliday and O'Bannon, ) due to factors such as winds and currents. Hines AH, Lipcius RN, Haddon AM. Population dynamics and habitat partitioning by size, sex, and molt stage of blue crabs Callinectes sapidus in a subestuary of central Chesapeake Bay.

Identifying Characteristics and Biology. The blue crabs are swimming crustaceans with characteristic blue claws. The blue pigments in them turn a reddish or pinkish color when cooked.

Males have blue claws, and, like most humans, female blue crabs "paint their fingernails" (i.e., the tips of their claws are "painted" red!) The specimen in the video obviously is a lady crab.

Callinectes sapidus (from the Greek calli = "beautiful", nectes = "swimmer", and Latin sapidus = "savory") is most commonly refered tp as the blue crab, Atlantic blue crab, or the Blue is a species of crab that lives in the western Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico that is characterized by its blue difference between a male blue crab and a female blue crab is their abdomen.

the hemolymph of several crab spe-cies. In the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, H. perezi is highly patho-genic and usually kills the host.

The main symptom of the infection is lethargy. Heavy infections are characterized by discolored (brown, yellow, milky or chalky) hemolymph that does not clot. The disease oc-curs in blue crabs in high-salinity.

Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, Middle Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Center, Pathobiology Investigations, Oxford, Maryland Cited by: In the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, early studies suggested a relationship between smaller crabs, which molt more frequently, and higher rates of infection by the dinoflagellate parasite, Hematodinium perezi.

In order to better explore the influence of size and molting on infections, blue crabs were collected from the Maryland coastal bays and screened for the presence of H. perezi in Cited by: 2.

Callinectes sapidus (Callinectes is Greek for "beautiful swimmer" and sapidus is Latin for "tasty" or "savory") Blue Crab Archives Home Feedback to Feedback to: [email protected] The blue crab, one of the most valuable crustaceans in the United States, is aptly described by its scientific name, Callinectes sapidus; Calli beautiful; nectes swimmer; and sapidus savory.

Blue crabs, like other crabs, possess five pairs of legs, with the first pair equipped with pincers. Crabs have a. Callinectes sapidus is native to the Atlantic coasts of the Americas. In the Mediterranean, it appeared around and though that it is established in East Mediterranean waters, relevant studies are limited.

The aim of the present study is to report quantitative and qualitative data on the blue crab’s biology and ecology in its non-native range, that are indispensable for management purposes. The blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, is of major interest to fisheries in the tropical and subtropical waters of the Western Atlantic.

It supports large valuable commercial and recreational fisheries in the temperate areas of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the USA (Texas, Florida, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey).

The first record of the American blue crab Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, from Europe was collected in on the Atlantic coast of France.

Subsequently specimens were detected in the North Sea (), Mediterranean Sea (, but probably as early as ), Baltic Sea (), Black Sea (), and possibly in the Sea of Azov ().Cited by: Research on blue crab diseases, parasites, and symbionts has been sporadic in the Gulf of Mexico.

Understanding the prevalence of diseases, parasites, and symbionts is important for managers to set informed regulations for the commercial industry and to understand the impacts of environmental disasters on aquatic animal health.

The objective of this research was to determine the prevalence of Author: Holly Rogers. Blue Crab. Callinectes sapidus.

Status: Not Listed. Classification: Invertebrate. Description. Also known as the Chesapeake blue crab or the Atlantic blue crab, these crabs are strong swimmers—largely due to their fifth pair of legs, which are shaped like paddles.

They are striking to spot with their often bright-blue claws and olive-colored. Local blue crab populations may be decimated as a result of overfishing. For instance, Trinidad has experienced a decline in the Callinectes sapidus population in Westmoorings which.

The American blue crab (Callinectes sapidus) is an invasive voracious alien species, with no known predators and with high reproductive and survival rates. sapidus was between July and September. The length of maturity of 50% was estimated as mm length for females.
