These stocking experiments allowed the development of a new type of holding cage for snow crab. The survival rate was 95 % after nine weeks and decreased more rapidly thereafter, probably due to the effect of prolonged starvation. The optimal crab stocking density was not determined, but no problem was encountered at the density of 37 kg/m2 used.
