Tangle Net Fishery for Spider Crabs (Maia Squinado)

A description of the biology of the Spider Crab is given. This is a trials narrative covering 10 days of fishing with tangle nets in the English Channel. Handling practices are described along with a short narrative on marketing. This report has been produced from a scanned original and may therefore contain some formatting and other inaccuracies. In cases where this affects the technical content, a paper copy of the original report can still be obtained from Seafish.
