Abstract

The biochemical composition of the eggs of Chthamulus stellatus (Poli) during their development has been investigated. The eggs are incubated within the mantle cavity of the adult but no substrates are contributed by the latter. Carbohydrates, protein, and lipid are all utilized. In contrast to two cold-water species, Balanus balanoides and B. balanus perviously investigated lipid rather than protein is consumed during the early stages. Possible explanations for this are considered.
