    Abstract

    The growth of Panulirus homarus (Linnaeus) in captivity is traced in relation to moulting. The growth per moult of 4 to 9 mm carapace length and annual rate of growth of 30 mm in male and 17 mm in female are found to be in agreement wiih those of its congeners. Instances of moulting without growth and death during exuviation are also reported.
