species of the genus depends on brackish water for sustained larval develop ment (Guest & Durocher, 1979; McNamara et al., 1983). Although it represents one of the more abundant and commercially exploited species of freshwater shrimp indigenous to northern and northeastern Brazil, very little is known about the effects of environmental variables on the biology of its larval stages. Guest (1979) reared the 8-9 larval and postlarval stages in 10?/oo sa linity, at 24?C, presenting data on the… CONTINUE READING
