Culture and screening of food organisms as potential larval food for finfish and shellfish
MetadataShow full item record
The culture of food organisms for fin and shellfish larvae is discussed in detail. Some of the artificial and enriched media that have been developed and tested for microalgae culture are enumerated and some isolation methods are given. Culture methods for phytoplankton and zooplankton are described. The screening, evaluation, nutritive value and suitability of food organisms are considered and some criteria for the selection of food organisms and best food conditions for larvae are presented.

Effects of food ration on growth, condition factor, food conversion efficiency, and net yield of estuary grouper, Epinephelus salmoides Maxwell, cultured in floating net-cages Chua, Thia-Eng; Teng, Seng-Keh (Elsevier, 1982)The effects of food ration on the growth and yield of the estuary grouper raised in floating net-cages were investigated. The optimum ration given on alternate days was 5% body weight (wet) which gave the best mean fish ...
