Abstract

Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Lobster Biology and Management, 1993 LIPID NUTRITION OF THE SPINY LOBSTER PANULIRUS JAPONICUS (DECAPODA, PALINURIDAE): A REVIEW BY AKIO KANAZAWA and SHUNSUKE KOSHIO Faculty of Fisheries, Kagoshima University, 4-50-20 Shimoarata, Kagoshima 890, Japan ABSTRACT The nutritional research on crustaceans such as the American lobster Homarus americanus and the prawn Penaeus japonicus has been reviewed by several workers.
