Green crabs were acclimated to 32 p.p.t. (922±3 mOsm kg H2O-1, N=3) and given various treatments over a 7-day period. 32 accl, controls; sham-inj, crabs injections daily with 400μl of filtered seawater; ESA, eyestalk ablated crabs; ESA-inj, ESA crabs given daily injections of 400 μl of eyestalk extracts from crabs acclimated to 32 p.p.t.

Values are mean ± s.e.m. (N). T=12°C.
