Larval survival, growth, and energy metabolism of an estuarine shrimp (Palaemonetes pugio) were altered by exposure to low micrograms/l concentrations of an insect growth regulator (the juvenile hormone analogue, methoprene). Larvae were several orders of magnitude more sensitive to methoprene in a flow-through exposure system than in a static-renewal exposure system. The first two larval stages and the final premetamorphic larval stage were more sensitive to methoprene toxicity than the intermediate larval stages. As indicated by reduced net growth efficiency values, elevated metabolic maintenance demands of exposed larvae were related to retarded larval growth rates.
