Abstract Larvae of the freshwater prawn Macrobrachium australiense were reared to postlarvae at various combinations of salinity and temperature (salinity, 0 to 35‰; temperature, 15 to 35°C). Metamorphosis was not recorded at salinities higher than 15‰. However, salinities within the range 0 to 15‰ did not markedly affect survival. No larvae metamorphosed at 15 or 35°C but the rate of development was highly dependent on temperature within the range of 20 to 30°C, being fastest at 30°C, slowest at 20°C.
