Abstract: Experiments were done with Chthamalus dalli to determine what factors affect the rate of both in vivo and in vitro hatching of nauplii. Aside from mechanical fragmentation of the lamellae, which increases the rate of hatching, no physical or chemical factors were found to affect the rate. From the field work done, there is no evidence to suggest that a factor regulating the hatching is necessary.
