I actually caught a baby Troll Crab once, in a home made fishing net just under our floating dock. I was young then, but I still remember it. Everyone
told me I wouldn’t catch # in my home mad net, hehe... but there it was the day after,... a troll crab, grim as hell. I would never have held a
creature capture now, like I did then, but it was interesting to see such a rare crab up close.
I really don’t think the Troll crab and the King crab are related, seeing that The King crab is actually not in the crab family, but they do look
This is a Norwegian Troll Crab. Found the picture on some site while searching for info on them.
There are huge King Crabs in Norwegian waters also. The Norwegian King Crabs can only reach the weight of 14 kg through, and can grow up to 1,80
meters in diameter. In the best areas of its original territory The King crab is told to have grown to the incredible size of 6 meters in diameter.
