THE GROWTH OF MANGROVE CRAB (SCYLLA SERRATA) CAUGHT ON THE BUBU CAPTURE EQUIPMENT IN THE WATER OF MANGROVE FOREST OF OEBELO VILLAGE KUPANG DISTRICTYAHYAH AND FONNY J.L. RISAMASU
Mangrove crabs are caught in traps of fishing gear has size variations. To maintain continuity of mud crab population in the waters of the mangrove forest, then one parameter to consider is the growth of both length and width and weight of crab carapace. The purpose of this study is to describe the specific form of the growth of mangrove crab (Scylla serrata) were caught in trap of fishing gear that operated in waters of mangrove forests of Oebelo village. This research has been conducted in the waters of the village Oebelo in July to September 2014. The result of measurement of the length and width of mud crab carapace is then used to create a Table of frequency distribution and correlation analysis length or width and weight of mud crab carapace. The results showed that the mud crab (Scylla serrata) caught in traps of fishing gear have a pattern of growth is allometric negative where growth in length or width carapace more dominant or faster than the growth of mud crab weight and length and width carapace was not significant against the weight of mud crabs and there is a fairly strong correlation and a very strong correlation between the length or width with weight of the mud crab carapace.
