Laboratory growth of the larvae of six british uk crabs



Laboratory growth of the larvae of six british uk crabs



Journal of Experimental Marine Biology & Ecology 107(2): 155-170



The larvae of six species of crabs-Cancer pagurus Linnaeus, Hyas coarctatus Leach, Inachus dorsettensis (Pennant), I. leptochirus Leach, Liocarcinus depurator (Linnaeus), and Pilummus hirtellus (Linnaeus)-were reared under laboratory conditions. The conditions of light, salinity and feeding were controlled, and the temperature was constant at either 15 or 20.degree. C. Large numbers were reared in isolation, and the survival, size, and duration of each instar recorded. Survival was good through the zoeal instars, variable to the megalopa, whilst only Inachus dorsettensis showed good survival to the first crab instar. Survival was better at 20 than at 15.degree. C. Intermoult duration increased with instar number, and was greatly extended at the lower temperature. Moult increment was slightly reduced at the higher temperature, and had a mean value of 21.5% for the whole study. The range of size variation within an instar showed no consistent patterns of change within the larval series.
