Nandakumar, G and Pillai, N N and Telang, K Y and Balachandran, K (1989) Larval development of Metapenaeus moyebi (Kishinouye) reared in the laboratory. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 31 (1&2). pp. 86-102.
The complete larval development of Metapenaeus moyebi was studied by rearing them in the CMFRI laboratory at Karwar. The viable eggs take 8i to 10 hours to hatch out and the duration of nauplius stage ranges between 37 and 44 hours. The protozoea transforms into mysis after 5 to 5i days. The mysis stage lasts for 91/2 to lO1/2 days. Complete larval development from egg to postlarva I takes 16-181 days. There are 6 nauplius sub-stages, 3 protozoea substages, 3 mysis substages and 1 intermediate stage during the course of development. The detailed structure of the larval substages is described and illustrated in this paper.
