Microbial proliferation on gill structures of juvenile European lobster (Homarus gammarus) during a moult cycle


The morphology of gill-cleaning structures is not well described in European lobster (Homarus gammarus). Furthermore, the magnitude and time scale of microbial proliferation on gill structures is unknown to date. Scanning electron microscopy was used to investigate development of setae in zoea, megalopa and juvenile stages (I–V). Microbes were classified… (More)
