Abstract
    Larvae of the deep sea shrimp, Pandalus borealis , were cultured in the laboratory to the postlarval stage. They required 8 to 11 zoeal stages to complete the larval development. Observations were made on the movement and feeding behavior. Laval development, growth and feeding were studied at different temperatures ranging from 3 to 12 °C and salinities ranging from 22 to 34 ppt. S. For survival and growth, 9 °C and 32 ppt. S were shown to be optimal. Animals kept in total darkness showed no differences from those kept an a 12 hour light-dark schedule. The food requirements were recorded according to larval stage and experimental conditions. At 6°C, the survival and growth decreased and the development was hampered when less than 10 Artemia salina nauplii were provided for each larva daily.
