Abstract Temperature and salinity tolerances of juvenile Metapenaeus bennetlae Racek and Dall were estimated by abrupt exposure to critically high or low levels of each factor following acclimation to 12 combinations of temperature (17, 22, 27 and 32°C) with salinity (5, 20 and 35‰.). No significant differences were found between tolerances of males and females. Acclimation temperature influenced both temperature and salinity tolerances, while acclimation salinity affected only the salinity tolerance. Irrespective of temperature and salinity acclimation levels, juvenile M. bennettae were able to tolerate temperatures from 8.1 to 32.9°C and salinities from 1.0 to 62.0‰ These findings are discussed in relation to similar published studies.
