Total N-content of exuviae, bodies and gonads has been measured after moulting in normal and eyestalkless Eriocheir sinensis. There is no considerable difference between them, gonad development seems however to be initiated by removal of the eyestalks. Since the intermolt period of eyestalkless crabs is much shorter, it is concluded that the rate of protein synthesis is accelerated although the total protein content is not increased above normal. The increased size growth of operated crabs after the first experimental moult is to be ascribed to an increased water-absorption.
