The purpose of this research is to develop a low cost, student-friendly protocol for the dehydration of decapod crustaceans (shrimp) for morphological examination and imaging using a desktop scanning electron microscope. This dehydration protocol is being tested on specimens from the Caridean infraorder. While developing and testing this protocol, it was found that while the freshwater analog species was quite amenable to this procedure, the marine samples require additional processing.
