Twelve 1 m2 quadrats were ramdomly staked out in the N. meinerti zone throughout the mangrove swamp at Mgazana. Every month between 1995 and 1996, the numbers and positions of the holes falling within the quadrats were measured and recorded. A wide size range of N. meinerti was then caught within the mouths of their burrows and measured to yield a significant crab size-hole size relationship. Data was then analysed using cohort analysis and regression.
