Microbound larval feed as supplement to live food for milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) larvae
MetadataShow full item record
Highly variable results using Brachionus as food for milkfish (Chanos chanos) larvae may be related to: (1) relatively low content of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) in Brachionus and (2) inability of first feeding larvae (day 2) to ingest rotifers in sufficient numbers. Early supplemental feeding with a microbound diet high in HUFAs may improve growth and survival of milkfish larvae.
