Changes in ovarian weight and volume of Crangon crangon during ovarian development are subjected to mathematical treatment. The relationship between ovarian wet weight and ovarian stage is exponential, and indicates that the developmental stages (oogenesis, previtellogenesis, vitellogenesis) are approximately equal in duration. The exponential relation allows, although to a limited extent, the prediction of ovarian stage from values of percentage of body weight occupied by the ovary. Derived increase in ovary wet weight is related more to increase in ova volume than to increase in the number of ova, particularly during later stages of development. At stage 6 virtually all the supporting tissue has disappeared, while the weight of the ovary is still about half its maximal weight as attained at stage 7.
