In addition, the BS of fish under the highest light intensity increased as white rockfish grew, but BS of fish under lowest light intensity was stable regardless of juvenile body size.

Compared to October, the greatest depression of juvenile body weight was observed in December (t = 2.56, p = 0.01) and January (t = 1.88, p < 0.10).
When some of the roots reach the sexual organs, parasitic castration occurs: Male crabs assume a female form, and females revert to an infertile juvenile body.

Secondarily, the development through metamorphosis of this species was used to determine whether there are commonalities that can be used to define developmental patterns for the genus Owenia or to differentiate species within this genus.
