Verghese, Bindhu and Radhakrishnan, E V and Padhi, Abinash (2008) Effect of moulting, eyestalk ablation, starvation and transportation on the immune response of the Indian spiny lobster, Panulirus homarus. Aquaculture Research, 39 . pp. 1009-1013.
The Indian spiny lobster, Panulirus homarus (Linnaeus 1758), is of great commercial importance and has a high demand in the internationalmarket.However, due to the lack of larval rearing technology, traders depend heavily on the wild-caught undersized lobsters that are normally maintained in impoundments for fattening. Overstocking and poormanagement of these holding and fattening systems can result in stress, which can eventually lead to disease outbreak. Crustaceans respond to these stress factors with their innate immune system, consisting of bothcellularand humoral factors.
