In any maricuUure practice, availability of seed is one of the prime requisites for sustaining growth, development and to make the activity viable ecologically and economically. As the natural source of seed is often beset with environmental / conservational problems, the dependable source is production through hatchery techniques. Uninterrupted production and supply of live feeds alone can sustain hatchery operations and to feed the emerging larvae or post larvae with different feed requirements at different stages of development / growth. Technologies developed by CMFRl in this line are given in this paper. The method of culturing important live feed organisms such as micro-algae, rotifers, cladocerans and Artemia salina along with their harvesting and preservation are briefly described in this account
