Camtschatica crab, or "Russian crab" is very prevalent in the north. It was back in the 1930s the Russians began research on king crab in Moscow. This research did not succeed before the beginning of the 1960s.

The first king crab caught in Norway was back in 1977. It was caught in a halibut yarn in "Klubbvika" in the Varanger Fjord.

The specimen weighed 6.3 kg.


King crab can be over 1.5 meters in diameter and weigh 12 kg. It grows slowly and is first sexually mature at the age of 10-12 years, and can get  up to 30 years old. King crabs thrive at depths from 5 to 300 feet and water temperatures of 2 to 7 degrees, making the Norwegian coast a favorite for this species.
