Check out this video on the removal of the parasite from the mud male crab. We have been seeing an increasing amount of crabs that are affected by this parasite.

The removal of the parasite provoked the death of the crab?
This is rhizocephalan. It's interesting how its removal is fatal. Do you think it's because of the toxins released from the inner part of the barnacle breaking down?
Fry 'em up in olive oil with a little sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper, and those Sacculina faux brood pouches make fine eating! Believe it or not, this species can provide something far more delectable and unforgettable! Luckily, I have had the pleasure of enjoying this aforementioned taste treat (albeit only once): several of the Sacculina nervous system tendrils, prepared raw, and slathered in a balsamic reduction topped with fresh arugula, and locally sourced, table crumbled goat cheese. Muah! The sensations experienced by my palate were no doubt made clear to those around me via my moans of epicurean ecstasy.
I am very interested in what exactly happens when the parasite is cut off and what causes the death of the crab. This is the only thing I found on the internet that addresses this. Thanks you so much for the video and have you conducted any more experiments since this was filmed?
Isn't it weird how female crabs can recover from the parasite but males can't
