Abstract:The effect of augmented diet on egg production for Hippa
pacifica was tested in the crab's natural habitat, the sandy beaches at Enewetak
Atoll, Marshall Islands. Crabs on a treatment beach were fed cubed shark
meat for 18 days. After treatment, the percentage of ovigerous female H.
pacifica had nearly doubled, while a nearby control beach did not change
significantly.
