Diwan, A D and Joseph, Shoji (1994) Induction of gamete activity in the Indian penaeid prawns. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 133 . pp. 15-19.
In fish and other vertebrates sperms are motile and motility is an easy assay for determining viability of sperms but in crustaceans it is not so. Here induction of activity in nonmotile spermatozoa denoted by acrosomal filament formation is considered as a prime factor for assessing the viability.Similarly.fertile eggs can be assessed by inducting activity in them and denoting certain characteristics. Such basic information is most essential for developing cryopreservation techniques.
