dc.description.abstractThree- to five-day old hatchery-reared megalops (4.0 to 6.4 mg body weight) of the mud crab, Scylla serrata, were cultured to the juvenile stage in 20 m2 net cages installed in brackishwater nursery ponds. To establish a suitable stocking density, megalops were stocked at 10, 20, and 30 ind·m-2 in net cages. Treatments were replicated three times over time. After 30 days of culture, mean survival of juveniles ranged from 48.3 to 53.3% and did not vary significantly (P > 0.05) among the three stocking densities. Similarly, the mean final body weights of juveniles ranging from 2.91 to 3.40 g and mass weights 458.9 to 1066 g did not significantly differ among stocking densities. These results show that stocking of crab megalops directly in net cages in a brackishwater pond is feasible at any of the stocking densities tested.en
