Abstract 1. Forty-eight hr LC50 critical concentrations of zinc for Portunus pelagicus and P. sanguinolentus larvae were between 0.56 and 0.77 mgl-1, and for Charybdis feriatus 0.96 mgl-1. Those for cadmium were 0.38, 0.25, 0.25 mgl-1 respectively. 2. P. pelagicus zoeae may be most susceptible during the peak breeding season, and all three species are very sensitive in comparison with other crab zoeae documented. 3. Application of recommended conversion factors for acceptable marine environmental maxima of these metals shows they are exceeded in coastal urban waterways.
