Adults females of Penaeus vannamei completed the molting cycle in 11.7±0.5 days (n=16), being the postmolt 25%, the intermolt 18% and the premolt 57%. The results demonstrate that the molting cycle for P.vannamei is similar to the P. stylirostris and that the ablation should be done between the third and fifth day after the molt.
