The effects of a dinoflagellate parasite (Hematodinium sp.) on carbohydrate metabolism were examined in the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus. Five stages of infection were observed. These included uninfected (Stage 0), subpatently infected (SP), and patently infected (Stage 1-4) lobsters. During patent infection, the concentration of glucose in the hemolymph was reduced significantly from its value of 180 microg ml(-1) in uninfected (Stage 0) lobsters to 25.3 microg ml(-1) in Stage 3-4… CONTINUE READING
