Des Rhithropanopeus harrisii recueillis à la fin de la période normale de reproduction ont été maintenu dans un système d'eau de mer fermé à 24 ± 1°C, avec un cycle jour-nuit de 12:12 et une salinité moyenne de 12°/00. Les premières femelles ovigères de la saison de non-reproduction ont apparu 5 semaines après le début de l'étude. Les larves, écloses après une période additionnelle de 7 semaines, ont montré un taux de survivance dans les limites normales pour les élevages en laboratoire de cette espèce. Cette étude montre qu'il est possible de maintenir toute l'année en laboratoire une population reproductive de R. harrisii, et d'obtenir une production continue de larves à des fins expérimentales.
