The purpose of the DTU Aqua part of the project is to collect and analyze data for a quantitative description of the population and parasite structure of the shore crab (Carcinus maenas) in Limfjord in Denmark. This includes quantitative information on the species’ geographical distribution in the Limfjord as well as estimates of abundance. The abundance estimates will be based on mark-recapture experiments and trawl survey data. Geographical distribution and year to year fluctuation in abundance of the shore crab will be related to key parameters such as salinity, depth and temperature.
The project is coordinated by University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
