Stomach Substance of Lobsters Panulirus Argus in Veterinaria

  • Todd Boyd, Zoe Mason


To decide the creation of the regular eating routine of Panulirus argus (Latreille 1804) lobsters, it was made, during the long stretches of july-august (2004-2006), the examination of the stomach substance of lobsters caught in situ in the El Holandés sea shore, an ensured sea shore in the south of Guanahacabibes Peninsula, Pinar del Río. Lobsters were caught somewhere in the range of 6:00 and 9:00 am by free plunging, getting grown-up people with craftsman pontoon snares. Tests were assumed the tidal pond of the coral reef, somewhere in the range of 1 and 5 meters of profundity. It was broke down the substance of 30 stomachs every year with the exception of 2006, year in which the low bounty of lobsters permitted gathers just 5 units. The examination of stomachs tosses a vacancy of 10,0%; 56,7% and 40,0% for quite a long time 2004, 2005 and 2006 individually. 14 associations were distinguished in the stomachs, standing apart as increasingly visit Vegetable Rests (55,0%), Mineral Rests (38,3%), and Spicules of Sponges (16,7% ). Also they show up with a recurrence rate higher than 5 %: Organic Matter, Rest of Shells, Ostracods, Copepods and rest of different scavangers. Of this it can infered that the normal eating regimen of P. argus in the contemplated zone is comprised of living beings like molluscs and in a general sense shellfish, those that can offer starting point to the mineral rests. The vegetable (T. testudinum and machro-green growth) utilization, despite the fact that is coincidental, is generally visit on lobsters of this zone.
