Green crabs were acclimated to 32 p.p.t. salinity (920±8 mOsm kg H2O-1, N=3) and transferred to 10 p.p.t.(307±12 mOsm kg H2O-1, N=6) for 7 days. 32 accl, control crabs; 32-10 intact, crabs transferred to 10 p.p.t. with no other treatment; 32-10 ESA: crabs subjected to eyestalk ablation and transferred to 10 p.p.t.; 32-10 inj: intact crabs transferred to 10 p.p.t. and given daily injections of eyestalk extracts; 32-10 ESA-inj: eyestalk ablated crabs transferred to 10 p.p.t. and given daily injections of eyestalk extracts.

Values are mean ± s.e.m. (N). T=12°C.
