Previous studies of energy metabolism in larvae have described a developmental ‘‘point of no return’’ (PNR), a time by which larvae of planktotrophic marine species must feed in order to survive and grow. This study investigated the effects of long-term food deprivation on developing larvae of the oyster Crassostrea gigas with the goal of providing a biochemical and metabolic description of larvae at the PNR in this species. Mortality of unfed larvae was low for the first 14 days without the… CONTINUE READING
