Microbound larval feed as supplement to live food for milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) larvae
Highly variable results using Brachionus as food for milkfish (Chanos chanos) larvae may be related to: (1) relatively low content of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) in Brachionus and (2) inability of first feeding larvae (day 2) to ingest rotifers in sufficient numbers. Early supplemental feeding with a microbound diet high in HUFAs may improve growth and survival of milkfish larvae.

Segner, Helmut; Burkhardt, Patricia; Avila, Enrique M.; Storch, Volker; Juario, Jesus V. (1986)Unicellular algae, particularly Chlorella, are widely used as starter feeds for marine finfish larvae. However, milk fish larvae when reared on Chlorella sp., suffered morality up to 100% within the first days of feeding ...
