Population structure and egg production of the seagrass shrimp Hippolyte kraussiana Stimpson, 1860 (Decapoda: Hippolytidae) at Inhaca island, Mozambique




Hippolyte kraussiana, a poorly known tropical species, was collected from seagrass beds of Inhaca island, Mozambique, in August 2005 during neap/spring and low/high tides by means of a small aluminium trawl fitted with a 1 mm mesh body and cod-end-net. Specimens were identified, sexed, counted and morphometric measurements were made. Ovigerous females were classified as small [carapace length (CL): 1.10–1.35 mm] and large (CL: 1.40–1.80 mm); the embryo mass was staged and counted.
