    Abstract

    Rotifers are considered to be an excellent and indispensable live feed for larvae of many finfishes and crustaceans, lt(1960) was the first to culture the rotifer, Brachionus plicatilis for feeding marine fish larvae, and now it is being extensively used as live feed in hatcheries all over the world.Their slow swimming habits, ability to tolerate a wide range of salinities, parthenogenetic mode of reproduction and ability to get enriched easily, make rotifers an ideal live feed organism. As aquaculture sector is fast growing and is gaining more importance as the fish landings and supply are getting irregular, the role of rotifers is all the more important
