    Abstract

    Feeding response of the laboratory reared second stage phyllosoma larvae of the spiny lobster Panulirus homarus was studied individually on a diet of newly hatched Artemia salina nauplii. The density of food affected feeding and moulting under experimental conditions. With increase in density of Artemia nauplii from 1 to 100/60 ml, consumption also increased from an average of 0.5 to 27.8 nauplii/day. Percentage consumption increased from 50 when offered 1 nauplius/ 60 ml to 80 at a ration of 5 nauplii and thereafter decreased gradually to 27.8 at a density of 100 nauplii/60 ml.
