Application and validation of the lipofuscin method in the assessment of crustacean age

Abstract

Lipofuscin, which is a fluorescent pigment detectable in crustacean neural tissue, is correlated with age in laboratory populations of Homarus, Nephrops and Penaeus. In natural populations where age is unknown it is correlated with body size. In lipofuscin frequency distributions modes are present in some instances and may indicate the age structure of… (More)
