Lobster growth profiles / S.L. Waddy and D.E. Aiken. : Fs70-8/80-74E-PDF

"Growth increments and rates were determined from 2500 molts of more than 600 cultured juvenile lobsters between 14 and 93 mm carapace length (CL), with up to 15 molts recorded from a single individual. Growth to 63 mm CL (" canner" size) averaged 0.085 mm/day, with a maximum of 0.14 mm/day (0.1 mm/day will produce a 450-g "market" lobster in 2 yr). This maximum is 40% greater than that reported by others. Above 63 mm CL, growth rates were severely reduced in both males and females (0.05 mm/day). Eyestalk ablated lobsters at 15°C grew at almost twice the rate of the fastest intact lobster at 20°C. These growth rates produce Hiatt diagrams that are progressive in the juvenile phase and retrogressive for both males and females in the mature phase."--Abstract.
