Two environmentally realistic concentrations were examined in this study (10 ng/l and ng/l) at two salinities (35 and psu). Female and male crabs crabs Subject Category: Organism NamesCited by: A crab has a hard exoskeleton so an increase in volume would likely be fatal. Since the blue crab survives in brackish water quite well, that is not the answer. Is the crab hyper- or hypo-osmotic in brackish water? If he is hyper-osmotic then his volume would have to remain the same to survive. If he is hypo-osmotic then his volume would decrease.

When shore crabs Carcinus maenas are transferred from 11 to 38‰ S at 11°C, new constant levels of hemolymph freezing points and of concentrations of Na, K, Ca, and Mg in the hemolymph are accomplished within 24h.
From a decrease in serum protein and in serum free amino acids and an increase in the relative amounts of individual essential free amino acids in Cited by: This chapter discusses the osmoregulation of the shore-crab carcinus maenas as related to the ATPase activity of the gill epithelium.
Active transport of Na across the gill epithelium is one of the major mechanisms involved in the hemolymph hyperosmotic regulation in euryhaline crabs acclimating to dilute : A.
Pequeux, S. Wanson, S. Chapelle. The green crab, Carcinus maenas, is a small crab ranging in size from 6 to 10 cm in carapace width (Fig. 4).Green crabs come in a variety of colors from green to brown to red and inhabit a range of intertidal habitats including mud flats, sand, and rocky substrates (Cohen et al., ).Green crabs feed on clams, oysters, mussels, small crustaceans, and fish (Cohen et al.
The uptake and effect of dissolved copper on regulation of hemolymph osmolality and Na+, K+, Cl- Ca++, and Mg++ concentrations in the shore crab Carcinus maenas (L.) were determined at mOsm (=14‰ S) ambient salinity. One mg Cu l-1 resulted in 50% mortality in 11 to 22 d; the highest sensitivity was observed around the moulting period.
and mg Cited by: A more moderate regulator is the green shore crab, Carcinus maenas, which is found in nature in salinities as low as 10 ppt and can survive laboratory acclimation to 8 ppt (Zanders, ). The green crab is able to maintain its hemolymph osmolality approximately mOsm kg H 2 O −1 above ambient at 8 ppt.
Interestingly, a weak osmoregulator Cited by: Euryhaline organisms are able to adapt to a wide range of example of a euryhaline fish is the molly (Poecilia sphenops) which can live in fresh water, brackish water, or salt water. The green crab (Carcinus maenas) is an example of a euryhaline invertebrate that can live in salt and brackish line organisms are commonly found in habitats such as estuaries.

The optimal mussel size increases with crab size.
