wet to dry weight in marine organisms

Postby tropix74 » Fri Feb 15, 2008 8:39 pm

Does anybody know how to convert from wet weight to dry weight in some common marine organisms (crustaceans, molluscs, polychaets)?

I would also like to know this

I am also trying to determine this. I have some average moisture contents for marine organisms (eg, cephalopods = 80% water content) but i am unsure how to convert. Hopefully, knowing the moisture content, someone out there can help?
