The major expansion of marine finfish and crustacean aquaculture since 1980s around the world can be attributed to the development of standard techniques for mass production of live feed. Even though most farmed marine animals are either carnivorous or omnivorous from their post-larval stage, microalgae are required for larval nutrition during a brief period either for direct consumption or indirectly as food for live prey fed to small larvae.
