[Tisbe holothuriae was collected from the Saronicos Gulf (Greece) and cultured in the laboratory at various conditions. Growth of females reared under 12 combinations of temperature (14-24°C) and salinity (26-44%o) and 7 different diets was evaluated. Adult female body length increased slightly with salinity and decreased greatly with temperature, with a maximum value (1.096 mm) at 14°C and 38‰. There were no apparent interactions between these factors. Length is related to temperature and salinity by the following equation, L = 1.39 + 0.0255 - 0.0003S2 - 0.071T + 0.0009T2 + 0.00005ST. There were no significant differences in length of adult females as a result of testing 7 different diets. Significant differences in length were found between the instars on successive days of development, except between the 4th and 5th day, when nauplii were transformed to copepodites., Tisbe holothuriae was collected from the Saronicos Gulf (Greece) and cultured in the laboratory at various conditions.
