Özet

The seasonal variation and meat composition of blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, 1896) were investigated. Twenty (10 male, 10 female) crabs were used each season. The total weight of the samples was estimated and the ratios of crude protein, lipid, dry matter and crude ash were obtained from meat of the body and claws.
