What is Jaiba

Jaibas are Portunid crustaceans, which inhabit coastal lagoons, estuaries, estuaries and the coastal area, both in the Atlantic and Pacific. In the Mexican Pacific, the callinectes genus crab are represented by three species: Callinectes arcuatus , Callinectes bellicosus and Callinectes toxotes and constitute an important economic fishing resource for riparian fishermen (30). They have a complex life cycle that includes planktonic, nectonic and benthic stages that are carried out in lagoon systems and in the marine zone (30). The species of the genus Callinectesthey are mainly opportunistic carnivores, predators of mollusks and crustaceans, in some cases they feed on carrion and there are records of cannibalism (33). Juveniles can feed at night or in the morning and their diet is varied: gastropod molluscs, bivalve molluscs, crustaceans, fish, plant material and other jaibas (13). Jaibas have primary sexual dimorphism; the males have the inverted “T” shaped abdomen and the females have the upper part of the abdomen triangular and sealed to the body, and the immature females have it rounded.


C. arcuatus is found from Los Angeles, California, EU, to Mollenda, Peru and Galapagos Island, in estuaries and coastal lagoon systems, as well as in coastal marine waters, on muddy, mud-sandy bottoms and mud mixed with conchuela. It is very tolerant of salinity variations, being regularly in salinity waters that vary between 1% and 65%. It migrates to the mouths of the lagoon-estuarine systems and coastal marine waters during the rainy season.

C. bellicosus inhabits southern California, USA, in the Gulf of Tehuantepec, Mexico, including the Gulf of California; It lives in sandy bays and coastal lagoons, generally in clear waters of salinities close to or equal to that of seawater (between about 30% and 38%), from the intertidal zone to about 20 m. deep During the hot season it performs limited migrations to deeper waters.

C. toxotes inhabits from the southern Gulf of California to Colombia. It lives in coastal lagoons and estuaries at depths of up to 30 m. generally in salinity waters less than 30%, but tolerates variations from 0 to 55%.
