Abstract

The most critical factor in the commercial farming offish and shellfish is the dependable availability of healthy fry produced in hatcheries. Most of the fishes having aquaculture potential have larvae with very limited yolk reserves and the transition stage from endogenous to exogenous feeding is very critical, often resulting in mass mortalities. The recent success in the consistent supply of many marine and brackish water fish seeds can be attributed to the mass production technologies of high quality live feeds.
