Cuticular lesions from twenty-four market sized lobsters (Homarus americanus) with winter impoundment shell disease were examined. Histological descriptions of cuticular lesions were correlated with the substage of molt for each lobster, because cuticle components and inflammatory mechanisms vary in each. A lesion severity grading system was developed and applied to four specific substages of the five-stage (A-E) molting cycle. Lesions present in substage C4, in which the membranous layer is… CONTINUE READING
