The spiny lobster Panulirus homarus (Linnaeus, 1758) was reared with the sexes togcthcr and separately to study the influence of sex on growth and reproduction. Mixed sexes had higher reproductive activity and lower growth output than either sex grown separately. Males grew faster than females when held separately. Males also grew faster than females when held together, namely at a similar rate as females grown separately. Variations in the sex ratios in nature may cause different reproductive success and growth.
