Growth and survival of Penaeus monodon Fabricius zoeae on different diatom feeds
MetadataShow full item record
A study was undertaken to determine the most suitable food for Penaeus monodon zoea out of mixed diatoms, Skeletonema costatum, Chaetoceros calcitrans and C. gracilis. Results indicate that mixed diatoms and C. gracilis are the better food. Addition of zooplankton, e.g.rotifers, is also recommended as early as Z3 since the larvae start to be omnivorous at this stage.
