Some peculiarities of the population biology of the ghost shrimp Nihonotrypaea petalura (Stimpson, 1860) (Decapoda: Callianassidae) in coastal waters of Vostok bay, the Sea of Japan

Some peculiarities of the population biology of the ghost shrimp Nihonotrypaea petalura... In June 2012, some features of the population biology of the ghost shrimp Nihonotrypaea petalura were studied first for the Russian waters in sublittoral populations of the Vostok Bay (Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan). It was found that N. petalura formed aggregations of an average density of 9–19 ind./m2 at the depth of 0.2–3 m on rocky and mixed bottoms. The biomass of the aggregations was 15–27 g/m2 or 1–33% of the average total biomass of macrozoobenthos, which included animals of 48 taxa. The maximum depth of the shrimp burrows was 52 cm. The populations consisted of animals with body lengths of 17–63 mm. In the size-frequency distribution, two peaks in the number, attributed to the shrimps of 24–29 and 39–48 mm size groups, were observed. The ratio of males to females almost did not vary with size and remained in general close to 1: 0.9 for the surveyed shrimp populations. The local differences in the studied parameters of N. petalura from the Vostok Bay, as well as from other areas of the range, are discussed in relation to features of the habitation of these animals that living in different biotopes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
