This process is a process that most determines the percentage level of success of the process of harvest soft-shelled crabs and later because if one is not careful while cutting the legs and crab claws seed it will cause bleeding effect on the crabs have great influence on seedling mortality before to get to "moulting" or soft-shelled crab shell softening. the claws and crab legs cut out is 2 (two) major claw foot smaller then all the left and right and 1 (one) foot rear paddler the left or right so that left only 1 (one) leg rowers the right / left bibit.Disarankan dibadan crab still attached to the newly started this business to further deepen their knowledge of basic techniques used to "cutting" is to the farmers who have experienced or successful in the cultivation of this soft- shelled crabs. 3. Placement Process Crab Seedlings in rafts / Karamba The last process is the placement of crab seeds that have been through the process of "cutting" last into rafts or cages that have been available.
