Abstract

Food supply may be regarded as the primary factor controlling growth rate and egg production in the natural populations of Crustacea (Wcnner et ah, 1974). The faster growth rate can also lead to an altered age/size at sexual maturity. Thus environmental factors not only influence the percentage of berried female in a population, but also the size of sexual maturity.
