Food is normally the largest single item in the running expenditure in fish and shellfish farming. Hence the suitability and cost effectiveness of the ration is of paramount importance to commercial success, many different types of feed may require development to meet the varied needs of different species and size of larvae. Palatability and physical structure of shrimp and bivalve ration are inter-related. Both factors alone and in conjucation affect ingestion and have an important impact on prawn and bivalve nutrition. Microencapsulated diet for larval and postlarval diets have been advocated by Meyers (1973). Gelatin microencapsulated diets suitable in sea water. Until the development of microparticulated diets the recent years the. study of larval nutrition was impossible.
