Abstract
    From measurements of the differences in electrical potential across the body wall of Carcinus maenas it could be deduced that the anion-cation mobility in the interfaces between blood and medium is often reduced compared to the ratio expected for free ion movement. Blood potential was always found to be negative compared to the medium. The findings are interpreted as resulting from an active transport of anions; a concurrent reduction of the anion mobility in the body walls inhibits the passive loss of these actively transported ions.
