Table 2: Mean values ± standard deviation of the concentration of total protein (PT), total lipids and hemocyanin (HC) in the hemolymph of juvenile Cheraxquadricarinatus for different growing conditions, before standard metabolic rate evaluation and post metabolic evaluation. The ratios between hemocyanin andtotal proteins are presented as percentage ± standard deviation, n=20. (ANOVA p>0.05, n=number of organisms used for biochemical analysis).
* Juveniles from culture ponds not subject to the multitrophic culture system.
