Lobster rearing facilities in the United States suffered severe losses of larval stages during the summer of 1974 hatching season. The organisms responsible for losses at the Bodega Marine Laboratory were the fungus Lagenidium sp and epiphytic contaminants. Various systems and treatments were used in attempts to overcome the problems encountered. Postlarval lobsters were produced successfully in a semi-closed system using ultraviolet irradiated sea water and a malachite green dip for eggs and larvae.
