A statistical treatment on the data of egg size, i.e., inner (embryo) and outer (egg capsule) diameters, and thickness of the perivitelline space, has been carried out for the Barents Sea euphausiid, Thysanoessa raschii. Investigations demonstrate that (1) there is environmental adaptation (i.e., to temperature and salinity) of euphausiid egg size; (2) egg size (embryo diameter) is similar throughout the reproductive area, but reaches either lower or higher values in the expatriate zones; (3) both embryo size and female fecundity are controlled by natural selection.
