Abstract
    Growth, spawn production and respiration were quantified for the intertidal prosobranches Lacuna pallidula and Lacuna vincta at 5 degree C and 10 degree C respiratory demand became relatively low on sexual maturity. The behavior of productivity depended on temperature and spacies. When prevented from mating, females of the two species behaved differently: Lacuna pallidula reduced their growth rates and commenced spawning infertile eggs; L. vincta showed some reduction in growth rates and did not produce infertile spawn.
