    Abstract

    By virtue of the size and feeding habits, most live feeds are size specific filter feeders. Therefore, it is possible to incorporate into the live feed particles say an antibiotic or therapeutic drug like Romet-30 or a probiotic organism of the appropriate size. This process called bio-encapsulation is thus an innovative means of delivering drugs and probiotic organisms to the larvae. Indeed, for fish larvae that are active sight feeders, it is the only effective means of drug delivery.
