MetadataShow full item record
The culture of food organisms for fin and shellfish larvae is discussed in detail. Some of the artificial and enriched media that have been developed and tested for microalgae culture are enumerated and some isolation methods are given. Culture methods for phytoplankton and zooplankton are described. The screening, evaluation, nutritive value and suitability of food organisms are considered and some criteria for the selection of food organisms and best food conditions for larvae are presented.
