Dear Coral Listers,

I have searched the literature for an average weight of an individual of
several species of mobile invertebrates, but have come up empty. Does anyone
know of studies where I might find weights of individuals of the following

Diadema antillarum, Echinometra viridis or lucunter, Eucidaris tribuloides,
ophiuroidea (any species), Crinoidea (any species), Strombus gigas (just the
living tissue- not the shell), Panularis argus (again, just the living

Thanks for your help and happy 2005,
