Abstract Laboratory experiments were conducted to determine the effects of Kepone on the larval development of the mud-crab, Rhithropanopeus harrisii, and the commercial blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, from the time of hatching until the 1st crab stage was reached. Differential survival of R. harrisii from hatching to 1st crab stage occurred in a range of 35 to 125 ppb Kepone, whereas differential survival of C. sapidus over the same period of development occurred in a range of 0.1 to 1.0 ppb. Statistical analysis indicated that, for every 10 ppb Kepone added, duration from hatching to 1st crab stage of R. harrisii was increased by 0.391 plus or minus 0.043 days; whereas for each increase of 0.1 ppb, the duration from hatching to 1st crab stage of C. sapidus is prolonged by 0.38 plus or minus 0.10 days. The 1st and 2nd zoeal stages of R. harrisii were the most sensitive developmental stages to Kepone, but the 1st zoeal stage of C. sapidus was not sensitive, statistically, to any concentration of Kepone tested. In zoeal stage of C. sapidus was not sensitive, statistically, to any concentration of Kepone tested. In zoeal stages II, III and IV, there were significant increases in mortality of C. sapidus over the previous stage in all media tested.
