ABSTRACT Distribution of a captive population of blue crabs was monitored for one year in a closed, recirculating cooling pond at a steam electric-generating plant. The majority of crabs was found in the warmest region of the lake, regardless of absolute temperature. Thermal entrapment was eliminated as a causative factor in establishing this distribution pattern, since the rate of acclimation to temperature changes as gauged by oxygen consumption rate measured in the laboratory was extremely rapid and independent of the direction of the change in temperature.
