    The production of small sized fish larvae like grouper requires cultivation of appropriate live organisms and is based on the establishment of an artificial food chain. This includes production of primary producers like microalgae as well as small zooplankton like rotifers to feed the fish larvae. Among the microalgae used to feed rotifers, the eustigmatophyte Nannochloropsis is identified as suitable and is required in large quantity to support high rates of rotifer production required in finfish hatcheries.
