Adaptations to salinity are reviewed throughout development in both species of the genus Homarus. Some populations of homarid lobsters are known to inhabit coastal and estuarine areas where salinity fluctuates. Salinity tolerance varies during development, with 50 % lethal salinities (LS(50)) ranging from approximately 15-17 in larvae to approximately 12 in postlarvae and 10 in adults. Larval and adult lobsters can avoid low-salinity areas using behavioural strategies. When exposed to low… CONTINUE READING
