[Extract] Over recent decades, crab aquaculture has emerged as a new industry, driven by increasing market demand and collapses of crab stocks and fisheries worldwide. Building on symposia previously held in Australia, the Philippines and Vietnam, the ISAMBC-2009 meeting brought together international crab scientists and industry to share insights into crab aquaculture, biology and resource management and to highlight future research needs for the sustainable development of crab aquaculture. The symposium was hosted at the new campus of Shanghai Ocean University. Over the last 20 years, Chinese mitten crab farm production in China has grown from just over 3,000 tonnes to over 500,000 tonnes per annum. In addition, China is now the largest producer of farmed mud crabs, Scylla spp., and the swimming crab, Portunus trituberculatus, at over 106,000 tonnes and 100,000 tonnes per annum, respectively.
