Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Observations of embryo development and larval hatching of snow crabs (Chionoecetes opilio) collected in laboratory experiments for the Physiological Response of Commercially Important Crab Species to Predicted Increases in pCO2 Project in Kodiak, Alaska from 2014-08-06 to 2016-06-16 (NCEI Accession 0259411)

In this study, we examined how CO2-driven acidification affected the embyro development and hatching of snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio), an important fishery species in Alaska. Ovigerous females were held in one of three treatments: ambient pH (~8.1), pH 7.8, and pH 7.5, through two annual reproductive cycles. Morphometric changes during development and hatching success were measured for embryos both years and calcification was measured for the adult females at the end of the 2-year experiment. The complete methods, which should be read and understood prior to using this data, are under review as: Long, W.C., Swiney, K.M., Foy, R.J., In review. Effects of high pCO2 on snow crab reproduction and early life history I: Ocean acidification does not affect embryo development or larval hatching. Marine Biolology
