Table 1 Number of sires, dams and offspring and survival rate (%) from hatching to puerulus

From: Can metamorphosis survival during larval development in spiny lobster Sagmariasus verreauxi be improved through quantitative genetic inheritance?

  1. A total of 30 families in which there were 20 half-sib groups (some males were mated with multiple females). Total number of unique males and females = 6 and 10, respectively (the same males and females were repeatedly paired in years 2008–2014)
  2. aMean survival after metamorphosis (calculated as percent difference from stocking), n.a. = not available
