Description of life cycle and mating behavior Life cycle: Eggs and larvae found in inshore waters. Larvae undergo 5 nauplial, 3 protozoal and 3 myses stages. Post-larvae migrate to brackish waters to feed and grow and go back to the sea where they attain maturity (Ref. 108666). Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
