The influence of methyl farnesoate in the regulation of gonad development in the prawn, Macrobrachium malcolmsonii was investigated. Injection of methyl farnesoate into female and male prawns significantly increased mean oocyte diameter and testicular follicle diameter as well as mean ovarian indices and testicular indices, respectively. These results provide strong evidence that methyl farnesoate is involved in the control of reproduction in prawns. L'influence du methyl-farnesoate dans la régulation du développement de la gonade chez la crevette Macrobrachium malcolmsonii a été étudiée. L'injection de methyl-farnesoate chez les mâles et les femelles ont accru de façon significative, respectivement, le diamètre moyen des ovocytes et le diamètre des follicules testiculaires ainsi que les indices ovarien et testiculaire moyens. Ces résultats mettent en évidence le fait que le methyl-farnesoate intervient dans le contrôle de la reproduction chez ces crevettes.
