      EJ Aujero, O Millamena, ET Tech & SG Javellana - In GL Rogers, R Day & A Lim (Eds.), Proceedings of the First International Conference on Warm Water Aquaculture-Crustacea, held on the Brigham Young University Hawaii Campus, February 9-11, 1983, 1983 - Brigham Young University Hawaii Campus
      Feeding experiments were conducted to test the nutritional value of five marine phytoplankton species namely: Chaetoceros calcitrans, Tetrasemis sp., Dunaliella sp., Nannochloris sp. and Chlorella sp. isolated from panay , Philippines to the larvae of Penaeus monodon from nauplius to Mysis.

      Proximate analyses and determination fatty acid composition were made on the larvae were directly related to the level of Polyunsaturated fatty acids in the legal diets.

      Best results were obtained with Chaetoceros calcitrans, Tetraselmis sp. and Dunaliella sp as food.
