The energy reserves of eggs of marine invertebrates have been assumed to supply the metabolic needs of development unhl feeding on particles commences. This view is challenged by recent laboratory studies which show that marine invertebrate embryos of some nonarthropodan phyla are able to transport and use dissolved organic material (DOM, e.g. amino acids and fatty acids) in seawater as a source of material (energy) for metabolic needs and growth. Here we present results of experiments… CONTINUE READING
