Bringing together the best minds around the world to benefit Crustacea

Our Mission

The mission of the Crustacean Society is to advance the study of all aspects of the biology of the Crustacea by promoting the exchange and dissemination of information throughout the world.


The Crustacean Society would like to invite members and non-members alike to our meetings. We meet twice a year. In January, we meet with The Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology. The Mid-Year meeting is usually held outside the US, sometimes with another society. Meetings are the place to network, bounce ideas around, and learn new things from other researchers. Do not miss these opportunities!

The Journal

The Crustacean Society publishes The Journal of Crustacean Biology which is published a year. Starting 2017, JCB will be published by Oxford University Press.
