    Microalgae such as Chaetoceros gracilis, C. calcitrans, Chlorella salina, C. marina, Chromulina pleoides, Dunaliella tertiolecta, Isochrysis galbana, Nannochloropsis oculata, Pavlova lutheri, Skeletonema costatum, Tetraselmis chuii, Thalassiosira sp., are microscopic unicellular phytoplankton having size less than 10 μ, and have widely used in the aquaculture industry. The selection of these live feed organisms are based on many factors such as nutritional requirements of the cultured larvae, size of the mouth gape of larvae, development of the digestive tract of the cultured larvae, nutritional value and availability of the live feed and suitability for mass scale production. Though much efforts are been taken world-wide to supplement live feed totally or partially with artificial feeds, various studies pointed out that supply of suitable live feed organisms fortified with vitamins and fats are essential for the successful completion of the larval stages.
