The King Crab (King Crab in English), native to Alaska, was introduced into the Murmansk fjord near the Norwegian-Russian border in the 1960s. It quickly migrated along the coast of Finnmark in Norway. This came despite early Norwegian attempts to stop the spread, due to concerns about the influence of this alien species on marine life.
Today, king crab is considered a delicacy and an essential part of local fishing.
The king crab, which feeds on snails, benthic and even fish, can weigh up to 10 kilograms with a wingspan of 1.80 meters. It lives at a depth of 5 to 400 meters, depending on the season.
