The effects of starvation upon survival, growth and molting interval of newly hatched spiny lobster (Panulirus japonicus) larvae were examined. Newly hatched phyllosoma larvae were divided into five groups, which were starved for 2, 10, 24, 48 and 72 hours. The effects of starvation after hatching appeared to be restricted to lengthening of the first molting interval. First molting was delayed by a time proportional to the starvation period. This result indicates optional preparation of food organisms before phyllosoma larvae hatch out.
