These morphotypes differ in cheliped morphology and in certain morphometric relationships. This also occurs with size of morphological sexual maturity, estimated with relative growth at 4. This method distributes the data into groups of numbers previously established by an iterative process that minimizes the variance within groups and maximizes the variance among them. Towards sustainable freshwater prawn aquaculture — lessons from shrimp farming, with special reference to India.

A significant difference between slope parameters of linear regressions describing fecundity, either in terms of numbers of eggs laid or of larvae released, in relation to female fresh weight, indicates egg losses.

Afterwards, the trap was removed, and the captured material was screened. The linear regression analysis for this relationship demonstrated a lower allometric coefficient b for the juveniles when compared to the four subsequent castes Figure 3. This relationship was utilized in the K-means classification analysis. On the biology, origin, and radiation of freshwater-invading shrimp. According to these authors, changes in cheliped size, color and spination necessarily cause deep modifications to the intraspecific interactions and in the male’s interaction with the environment.

In Brazil, studies with native freshwater prawn species were discontinued due to great importance of Macrobrachium rosenbergii.

Diversity, distribution, and habitats of the macro-invertebrate fauna of the Rio Paraguay and Rio Apa, Paraguay, with emphasis on decapod crustaceans This study recorded for the first time, the occurrence of all four male morphotypes mxcrobrachium M.


From lecithotrophy to planktotrophy: Consequently, we could determine which of these initial variables has more influence on the differentiation of possible morphological categories morphotypes. In this work, the maximum number of larvae observed per hatching for females kept in laboratory was 2, Revue d’Hydrobiologie Tropicale, vol.

With respect to average fecundity F by length classes, the lowest and highest number of eggs observed was and 1, respectively. Acta Limnologica Brasiliensia, vol.

WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Macrobrachium amazonicum (Heller, )

Distinct morphotypes described for this species Moraes-Riodades and Valenti, have been recorded only for coastal populations from culture ponds Papa et al.

Macrobrachium amazonicum is the freshwater decapod of the greatest economic importance in the Eastern South American subcontinent Maciel and Valenti, Aquaculture and Research, maacrobrachium. The presence of these morphotypes in a species suggests that they guard and defend females during mating interactions Thiel et al. Carapace length ranged from 4.

CC a b In general, chelipeds had few spines and segments were translucent. This population was compared with other continental populations, including a population from the dam itself, collected in a previous study. Freshwater prawns of the genus Macrobrachium Bate, Crustacea: Once captured, the prawns were immediately taken to the laboratory for analysis.

Fecundity and fertility of Macrobrachium amazonicum (Crustacea, Palaemonidae).

In general, chelipeds were translucent and did not have spines. The relationship that best demonstrated a clear difference among the groups studied was PPL vs. This is an Open Access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License, which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Biology Ocurrence of male morphotypes of Macrobrachium amazonicum Caridea, Palaemonidae in a population with an entirely freshwater life cycle. As for fecundity by weight classes, the lowest number of eggs observed was and the highest, 1, TC a b Different biological characteristics were found between the populations studied. Morphotypic differentiation of male Malaysian giantprawns, Macrobrachium rosenbergii.


Culture of the Amazon River Prawn Macrobrachium amazonicum. In this species, sexually mature males can have different morphotypes, which have different sizes, morphology, physiology and behavior.

There is macrobrachiu human disturbance here, caused by an excessive external supply of nutrients, such as fish food macrobrqchiumviscera of caught fish and corn, to attract fish for sport fishing. Spine angle for the four groups. Nevertheless, these authors mentioned that GC2 morphotypes were not captured by them because of the trap used casting net. However, cheliped length was always greater in GC2. Japanese Journal of Ecology, vol. Maximum body size was larger in natural habitats compared to the pond culture, suggesting reduced growth or a shorter life span under artificial mass rearing conditions.

The population from the lake had lower mean sizes, with a smaller size macrobrachkum sexual maturity.

The adjusted equations are: Effect of density on population development in the Amazon River prawn Macrobrachium amazonicum. In general chelipeds were greenish and terminal segments carpus, propodus and dactyl more intensely moss green coloured. Because of this, there is some discussion about the taxonomic status of coastal and continental populations Moraes-Valenti and Valenti, This study records, for the first time, the occurrence of all four male morphotypes in a population of Macrobrachium amazonicum from a continental environment, with an entirely freshwater life cycle.

RCL ranged from CL by the K-means clustering analysis.

Macrobrachium amazonicum

The pattern of color, spines and setae was similar to that of GC1. To determine fertility, ovigerous M. Our results supported the hypothesis that coastal and continental populations of M.
