Abstract

Blood glucose level in crustaceans is controlled by the crustacean Hyperglycemic Hormone (cHH), released from the eyestalk neuroendocrine centres both under physiological and environmental stressconditions. Hyperglycemia is a typical response of many aquatic animals to pollutants and stress and,in crustaceans, increased circulating cHH and hyperglycemia are reported to result from exposure toseveral environmental stressors. Biogenic amines and enkephalin have been found to mediate therelease of several neurohormones from crustacean neuroendocrine tissue and a model of the controlling network is proposed.
