Evaluation of biological stains, inks, and fluorescent pigments as marks for shrimp.
MetadataShow full item record
Studies were made in the laboratory to find marking materials that can be used to distinguish groups of shrimp in mark-recapture experiments designed to estimate rates of population growth and mortality. A series of combination marks, formed by injecting various biological stains and fluorescent pigments, was developed. These marks are permanent and do not affect survival.
