Adult Callinectes similis occur in the oceanic littoral zone in salinities above 15ä at a depth of 100 meters along the eastern seaboard from Delaware Bay to Key West, Florida and southern coasts of the United States, to the Yucatan, Colombia and northern Jamaica (Williams 1984, Piller et al. 1995). They are widely distributed along the northern Gulf of Mexico in open bay habitats (Hsueh et al. 1992a). Juveniles are found in estuaries in these same regions. Juveniles of the lesser blue crab are common in seagrass beds in the Indian River Lagoon (Gore 1977).
