Changes in biochemical composition and energy utilization in developmental stages of the mole crab, Emerita holthuisi Sankolli

Sumitra-Vijayaraghavan, M.V.M. Wafar, J.P. Royan


Changes in the biochemical composition, caloric content and energy utilisation during the embryonic stages of Emerita holthuisi were studied. The results show that protein contributes 74% of the total energy available for development. The gross efficiency of the development of E. holthuisi was found to be 46.15%
