Viewed : 4391 - Downloaded : 3652 Some biometric parameters (total, abdomen and carapace lengths, and live weight), egg production, and embryonic and larval development of Palaemon elegans were studied. Total length and body weight mean 44.77±0.029 mm and 0.962±0.0021 g. Females produce around (306-1,704) egg/individual and the incubation period lasted 9-11 days at 19-27°C. Larvae reached post larval stage after 22 days of hatching. Keywords : The Black Sea, biometrics, egg production, larval development, Palaemon elegans, prawn
