Table 2 Survival rates at specific stages of rearing (S1, S2, S3, S4 and S5), averaged over nine years

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

Trait Unit n Mean Survival SD Min Max
S1 % 235,060 64.6 20.6 28.6 98.0

S5 % 8429 55.4 27.2 0.0 79.4
  1. Min = lowest survival family and max = highest survival family
  2. S1 = Early-phyllosoma stages (instars 1–6), S2 = Mid-phyllosoma stages (instars 7–12), S3 = Late-phyllosoma stages (instars 13–17), S4 = Metamorphosis and S5 = Puerulus stage
