Signs of larval necrosis were suppressed significantly leading to higher survival rate in the early rearing period until the fourth zoeal
stage when crab were treated with probiotics.
Following the nauplius phase is the zoeal
phase, which includes three protozoeal (PZ1-PZ3) and three mysis (M1-M3) stages.
Larvae of both species pass through 4 zoeal
stages (ZI-ZIV) and 1 glaucothoe stage (G) before they metamorphose to the first benthic crab stage (Cl) (Sato and Tanaka, 1949; Hoffman, 1968); therefore, these larval stages provide an opportunity to explore the utility of this model.
Effect of tank colouration on the feeding rates of zoeal
larvae of the giant freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii.
These cells migrate to a dorsolateral position in naupliar and zoeal
stages, and gradually enter the genital ridge at the mysis 1 stage.
Shrimp species share the same life cycle, as described by Ryan Gandy at FWC: "Growth stages for shrimp are: egg, nauplii, zoeal
, mysis, post larval, juvenile, adult.
Illustrated keys for the identification of the Pleocyemata (Crustacea: Decapoda) zoeal
stages, from the coastal region of south-western Europe.
Data on larval development and growth are poor for some brachyuran groups, and most larval descriptions deal only with the first zoeal
stages because of the difficulties encountered in appropriately feeding the small late larval stages (Ingle 1987; Cuesta & Rodriguez 2000).
The larval development of Lepidopa myops Stimpson, (Decapoda, Albuneidae) reared in the laboratory, and the zoeal
stages of another species of the genus from California and the Pacific Coast of Baja California, Mexico.
The effect of salinity on larval development of Uca tangeri (Eydoux, 1835) (Brachyura: Ocypodidae) and new findings of the zoeal
Latitudinal variation in the Dungeness crab, Cancer magister: zoeal
morphology explained by incubation temperature.
ohione larvae have extended marine planktonic development with several zoeal
stages (Dugan, 1971).
