Molt staging in adult Penaeus monodon
MetadataShow full item record
Changes and formation of cuticular layers and setae bordering the uropods and endopodites of the pleopods of adult Penaeus monodon were examined under a light microscope. Observations and photographs were made at 0, 12 and 24 hours after molting and every 24 hours thereafter until second molting occurred. Results show that the internal structures of the setae and cuticle undergo marked changes throughout the molt cycle. It was possible to identify the molt stages A, B, C and D. Rapid examination of the molt stages allows the proper timing of eyestalk ablation to induce ovarian maturation.
