Wax-ester reserves facilitate dispersal of hydrothermal vent shrimps
Marine Ecology Progress Series
Late zoeal and early postlarval stages of vent s h n m p (Rimcans exoculata, Chorocans chacei and Alvlnocarls rnarkensls), sampled from the water column above the Broken Spur vent site (mid-Atlantic Ridge), contained large amounts of bright orange coloured lipid in their thoracic and abdominal regions. The lipid compnsed 75 to 8 2 % wax ester, containing predominantly 16:O and 18:l fatty alcohols. In contrast, wax esters were found to be absent in samples of adult vent shrimp (R. exoculata anddoi:10.3354/meps146289 fatcat:l237ijfunvh37cyujf6uee4j2u
