Food Availability and Egg Production: A Field Experiment with Hippa pacifica Dana (Decapoda; Hippidae)
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
The effect of augmented diet on egg production for Hippa pacifica was tested in the crab's natural habitat, the sandy beaches at Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands. Crabs on a treatment beach were fed cubed shark meat for 18 days. After treatment, the percentage of ovigerous female H. pacifica had nearly doubled, while a nearby control beach did not change significantly.
