Abstract

The morphometric characteristics of the red crab (Thalamita spinimana) have not been widely studied. This research was conducted from March to May 2021 in the waters of Dompak Tanjungpinang, Riau Islands. Each sample obtained directly measured the morphometric part using a caliper or calipers with an accuracy of 0.05 mm and the crab body weight was also weighed using a digital scale with an accuracy of 0.1 g. The samples obtained during the study were 119 crabs, of which 84 female red crabs and 35 male red crabs. The carapace width range for female crabs is 55.40 – 88.32 mm, while in male crabs the carapace width range is 16.35 and 34 individuals 68.96 – 90.94 mm. The weight of female red crabs is in the range of 50.0 – 103.6 g, while the weight of male crabs is in the range of 49.0 – 142.8 g.

SusianaSusiana, Susiana received a Bachelor and Masters degree at Hasanuddin University, Makassar, Indonesia. In 2011 he received a bachelor's degree in fisheries through the study of gastropod composition in relation to the mangrove ecosystem in Bali, Indonesia. The results of this study were published in Agrikan: Fisheries Agribinis Journal in 2013. The master's degree in science was obtained at the same campus, Hasanuddin University, Indonesia with a thesis on mapping studies of the giant Tridacnidae shellfish conservation area in the Spermonde Islands region, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The results of the research have been published in the Tropical Marine Science and Technology Journal. Since 2009 until now he has worked as a lecturer at the Raja Ali Haji Maritime University, Tanjungpinang, Indonesia. Several awards have been obtained, including in 2017 being crowned as a Shining Researcher at the Faculty of Marine and Fisheries Sciences, Raja Ali Haji Maritime University. In 2018, it was again crowned as the Best Researcher in the Number of Most Publication category at the Faculty of Marine and Fisheries Sciences, Raja Ali Haji Maritime University. Currently leading a research project on mapping the gonggong shellfish area in Riau Islands, Indonesia in a Collaborative Inter-Higher Education Research (PKPT) grant in collaboration with Hasanuddin University, Indonesia. Previously, 2016 led a morphological research project on the identification of the gonggong snail sex in the Beginner Lecturer Research Grant (PDP) program. As a researcher, he continues to be involved in several research programs, such as cooperation with the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in the inventory and monitoring of mangrove ecosystems in the Riau Islands. Scientific publications continue to grow along with the research activities carried out.
