10- A :NMus Monday Morning, September 25. 1978 Rock Crabbing Could Become Popular BALTIMORE iUPli-In an experiment lhat might make commercial crab farming feasible, a Maryland biologist has successfully increased reproduction rates of rock crabs by convincing them "days" are only 21 hours long. Dr. Steve Hebach said if the tasty crabs could be produced in large numbers, a n e \v c o m m e r c i a 1 agriculture enterprise could be spawned. But for now there are cost problems and unresolved questions about growth rates. Rebach, an assistant biology professor al the University of Maryland- Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, Md. began his Experiment in 1975 with 35 rock crabs housed in individual cages. Using artificial lighting, he decided to simulate daylight for the caged crabs for seven hours, then follow with 14 hours of darkness for a 21-hour "day." •'The crabs will reproduce, molt tshed their shells) and conduct their lives according to the light cycle we set," Rebach said. "They treated 21 hours the same as 24 in their moulting." "Right now, we're pouring so much money into electricity that it would not be commercially profitable." said Rebach. who hopes the results of the UMES team will be applicable to the commercial crab industry in the future. Rebach said he used the rock crab instead of the more popular Maryland blue crab for his research because the rock crab "is a resource not being utilized now. "It tastes delicious, it's available and there is little known about it," he said, adding the main purpose of his experiment is to learn about the biorhythms of crabs. So far, the research shows rock crabs will reproduce faster if their days are shortened to contain fewer than 24 hours, but the UMES team is still trying to determine whether growth can be speeded. The U.S. Agriculture Department recently awarded Rebach $1507,000 to continue his experiments.
