The effect of temperature on the growth, survival and food consumption of the east coast rock lobster Panulirus homarus rubellus



The effect of temperature on the growth, survival and food consumption of the east coast rock lobster Panulirus homarus rubellus



Aquaculture0: 1 4, 227-231



The successful culture of the east coast rock lobster <i>Panulirus homarus rubellus</i> is reliant, among other factors, on the provision of optimal water quality for growth and survival. This study investigated the effect of temperature over a range of 9.7 degrees C (18.9+or-0.7 degrees C to 28.6+or-1.5 degrees C) on the growth and survival of juvenile (40.4+or-9 mm CL; 63.64+or-12.05 g) <i>P. h. rubellus</i> fed a diet of fresh mussel flesh.
