The species composition, period of occurrence, density, and distribution of the larvae of burrowing shrimp of the infraorders Gebiidea and Axiidea in Amursky and Ussuriysky bays (Sea of Japan) were studied in May–October 2008.

Abstract

The species composition, period of occurrence, density, and distribution of the larvae of burrowing shrimp of the infraorders Gebiidea and Axiidea in Amursky and Ussuriysky bays (Sea of Japan) were studied in May–October 2008. Larvae of eight species of this group were found in plankton samples. The period of occurrence of larvae in the bays was longest in Upogebia major and Nihonotrypaea petalura (4 and 3 months, respectively). Zoeae of the rest of the species occurred in the plankton for no more than 2 months, indicating a single larval hatching during the reproductive season. The average density of gebiidean and axiidean larvae was low and reached the highest values (4 ind./m3) in June in Amursky Bay and in July in Ussuriysky Bay; their contribution to the total density of decapod larvae was not above 18%. In general, larvae of the family Upogebiidae dominated in Amursky Bay and larvae of the Callianassidae were predominant in Ussuriysky Bay. The zoeae of U. major (up to 37 ind./m3) and Nihonotrypaea makarovi (up to 46 ind./m3) were most numerous. Larvae of the family Axiidae were recorded only in very low numbers in both bays.
