Culture of natural food for farmed freshwater fish and prawn larvae
MetadataShow full item record
This manual describes the various methods for culturing microalgae and other natural food organisms fed to freshwater fish/prawn larvae that are produced and reared in hatcheries. Hence, it will encourage/ promote the use of natural food organisms be these live and/or processed (concentrated algal pastes), as a means of optimizing larval fish/prawn production. The manual was written purposely for local freshwater fish/prawn hatchery owners/operators and their technicians. The authors prepared the manual for hatchery operators to have a better understanding of how and why there is a need to culture natural food organisms as part of the standard larval rearing protocol and to increase/boost fish and/or prawn seedstock production.

Improved hatchery rearing of mangrove red snapper, Lutjanus argentimaculatus, in large tanks with small rotifer (Brachionus plicatilis) and Artemia Duray, Marietta N.; Alpasan, Lota G.; Estudillo, Chona B. (Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology, 1996)A hatchery rearing scheme for the red snapper, Lutjanus argentimaculatus, is described. The feeding regime consisted of Chlorella, Brachionus, Artemia and minced fish. The average survival rate at day 24 was 27% in 3-ton ...
