Data are presented about the invasion level of commercially important crabs in the Sea of Okhotsk by rhizocephalan barnacles. Some general information concerning the structure, life cycle, and reproductive strategy of the parasitizing rhizocephalans and the effect on the Decapoda host.

Practical recommendations have been proposed to decrease the infestation level in populations of commercially Cited by:   Similarly, main host crabs of both S. confragosa and S. yatsui also seem to be P. crassipes judging from high prevalence of infection (for S.

confragosa, P. crassipes is one of the main host crabs), though they also parasitize other crabs (S. confragosa parasitizes Cyclograpsus intermedius Ortmann, and S. yatsui parasitizes M.

Hermit crabs are further classified as anomurans. The anomurans are not "true crabs." True crabs (like the blue crab) belong to a different decapod group, the Brachyura.
