Effects of salinity on rates of protein synthesis and oxygen uptake in the post-larvae and juveniles of the tropical prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii (de Man).


Protein synthesis is a major determinant of growth and yet little is known about the environmental factors that influence protein synthesis rates in farmed freshwater prawns. To this end, post-larvae and juveniles of Macrobrachium rosenbergii were exposed to various salinities (0, 14, 30 per thousand) to determine whole-animal rates of fractional protein… (More)
