Abstract

Bilateral eyestalk ablation can accelerate somatic and reproductive growth in spiny lobsters (Quakenbush and Hernkind 1981, Radhakrishnan and Vijayakumaran 1984a, b). In studies of the spiny lobsters Panulirus homarus and P. ornatus, we obseerved interesting changes in morphology and in feeding and reproductive behavior after eyestalk ablation.
