Feeding habits of larval rabbitfish, Siganus guttatus in the laboratory
metadataHiển thị bản ghi đầy đủ mặt hàng
The feeding habits of Siganus guttatus larvae were determined in laboratory rearing studies at 23.8-30.3 degree C by examination of digestive tract contents of larvae given rotifers and/or brine shrimp. Larvae were initially fed on rotifers at a total length (TL) of 2.6 mm (day 2 from hatching), and on brine shrimp at 4.4 mm TL (day 12). A change in feeding habits, seen as the flexion point in the relationship between larval TL and maximum amount of prey, occurred at about 7.0-9.5 mm TL with rotifers as prey, and at 7.2 mm TL with brine shrimp. Higher preference for brine shrimp over rotifers was seen in larvae 8-9 mm TL and larger. These changes in habit coincided with the full osteological development of the feeding apparatus in larvae at 7-8 mm TL. S. guttatus larvae exhibited a diurnal feeding pattern at day 9 (mean 3.7 mm TL), day 15 (5.8 mm TL) and day 21 (7.9 mm TL).
