  • The degree of hypoxia experienced by Carcinus maenas (L.) in littoral rock pools varies throughout the year. In summer, conditions may become extremely hypoxic or even anoxic at night. Crabs which remain in the pools utilize anaerobic metabolism for energy production as indicated by an increase in tissue lactate. In the laboratory, l-lactate was found to be the major end-product of anaerobic metabolism for although fumarate and alanine accumulated during anoxia, the amounts accumulated indicate… CONTINUE READING
