    Despite the growing importance of shrimp aquaculture, the study of shrimp endocrinology is lagging behind the effort invested in the study of crayfish, crabs, and lobster endocrine glands and their hormones. Fortunately, there is an increasing number of laboratories interested in the specific study of metabolism and endocrinology of cultured species of shrimp. Recent advances in the sequence elucidation of sinus gland (SG) neuropeptides and in their mode of action in the penaeids is encouraging. Small molecules like ecdysteroids and methyl farnesoate have increasingly become the subject of applied research in shrimp aquaculture.
