The maturation rate and spawning performance of ablated Penaeus merguiensis were significantly (P<0.05) higher at 27°C than at 23°C. Increasing the temperature from 23°C to 27°C further improved spawning performance (P<0.05), whereas reducing the temperature from 27°C to 23°C impaired spawning. The effect of temperature during the inducing period was more critical than during the holding period. Prawn growth (% of weight gain), however, was not different between 23°C and 27°C over the 60-day experimental period (P>0.05).
