Metapenaeus monoceros is a widely distributed Indo-Pacific prawn often met with in shores and estuaries liable to great variations in salinity. At Madras, it is a common inhabitant of the saline part of the Adyar and Cooum Rivers, and sexually mature as well as post-larval prawns have been obtained in brackish water1. Dakin2 has recently reported that the Australian species of MetapenÃ¦us, which is usually known under the name M. monoceros but is believed to be different, breeds in the coastal lakes and estuaries unlike other Penseids. As part of a programme of study on the osmotic regulation in PenÃ¦id prawns, we have recently examined the changes in the chloride content of blood in this prawn by employing the micro-modification of the Volhard titration as described by Wigglesworth. The results obtained appear to be of considerable interest since powers of active regulation of chloride are developed to a very high degree in this prawn (see graph).
