Radhakrishnan, E V and Vijayakumaran, M (1984) Effect of eyestalk ablation in spiny lobster Panuurus homarus (Linnaeus): 1. On moulting and Growth. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 31 (1). pp. 130-147.
Bilateral eyestalk ablation accelerated moulting frequency and weight gain in juvenile, maturing and mature Panuliriis homarus, irrespective of their reproductive status. Three- to seven-fold increase in weight gain was obtained on eyestalk ablation. Ablation also did not incapacitate the lobsters in locating food, nor did it interfere with regeneration of autotomised limbs. The study indicates the presence in P. homarus of the Moult Inhibiting Hormone (MIH) and the Gonad Inhibiting Hormone (GIF) factors in the eyestalk.
