In the subsequent juvenile crab stages (JII-JIV), the mean intermolt period did not vary significantly between treatments S1, S3, and FC (pooled data; JII = 6.0 [+ or -] 2.1 days, ANOVA, [F.sub.2,84] = 0.42, P = 0.66; JIII = 8.6 [+ or -] 4.2 days, ANOVA, [F.sub.2,81] = 0.65, P = 0.53; JIV = 12.4[+ or -]4.8 days, ANOVA, [F.sub.2,81], = 1.79, P = 0.17; Fig.
The mean CW of the JII and JUI crab stages also differed significantly among treatments (JII: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,83] = 13.96, P < 0.01; JIII: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,86] = 6.78, P < 0.01; Fig.
The mean CL of the JIII crab stage differed significantly between treatments (ANOVA, [F.sub.2,83] = 7.28, P < 0.01), with the juveniles cultured in S1 being 5.9% larger (Tukey's HSD test, P < 0.05) in comparison with the specimens of treatment S3 and the FC group (Fig.
cumulanta (JI: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,73] = 2.36, P = 0.1; JII: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,83] = 1.14, P = 0.32; JIII: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,82] = 1.02, P = 0.36; JIV: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,87] = 1.57, P = 0.21; JV: ANOVA, [F.sub.2,85] = 2.55, P = 0.84).
The Japan Patent Information Organization, which supplies this information, was founded as a nonprofit corporation in 1985 by reorganizing Japatic (the Japan Patent Information Center) and the patent information services of JIII
(Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation) in order to serve the increasing external demands for patent information and cope with the rapidly developing information-oriented era.
