Use of Lipid Profiles of Euphausia superba as a Parameter for Determining Dietary Preferences and the Abundance and Spatial Distribution of krill
Entry ID: ASAC_508


Summary
Abstract: From the abstracts of some of the referenced papers:

During a period of short-term (19 days) starvation, total lipid in the digestive gland of Euphausia superba Dana decreased from 21 to 9% dry weight. Total lipid per digestive gland decreased significantly during starvation compared to Day 0 individuals, falling from 1960 (plus or minus 172) TO 385 (plus or minus 81) micrograms. Polar lipid was ... View entire text
