    A quantitative analysis was carried out to estimate the maximum sustainable yield of blue crab distributed around the waters of Korea and in the East China Sea without using fishing effort data, fitting monthly catch data to a modified surplus production model.
    The maximum sustainable yield of this fish stock was estimated to be about 22,400 tonnes per year and Fmsy to be 0.95.
