Effects of furanace on the development of larval stages of Penaeus monodon Fabricius
MetadataShow full item record
Successful molts and morphological defects in P. monodon zoeae (Z1, Z2, Z3) resulting from a 24-h exposure to 1.0 and 2.0 mg/L furanace in baths of 1.0 and 2.0 mg/L were quantified. Molting was delayed in Z1, but not in Z2 and Z3 at 1.0 mg/L; considerably delayed in all sub-stages at 2.0 mg/L. Morphological defects in the telson, carapace, uropods and pereiopods were observed in high frequency in Z3 after the exposure. These abnormalities did not result in 1.0 mg/L. In Z2, a 6-h exposure is deemed optimum for bath in 1.0 mg/L as gauged from higher survival of larvae after 96 h.
