Figure 3

The molting (A) and survival (B) rate of larvae exposed to artificial seawater at 30 (open bar) and 15 (closed bar) ppt after 96 hrs. The data are presented as mean ± 1 SE (n = 5–9). Statistical significance among the larvae exposed to 30 ppt treated groups is determined at P <0.05 and noted in capital letters, and the 15 ppt treated groups are noted in lower case letters (one-way ANOVA and Tukey–Kramer multiple comparison tests). Statistical significance between the two groups was determined using the Student’s t-test and noted at P <0.05: *; P <0.001 <*** Unless specified, there was no statistical significance between the two groups or among the different larval stages.
