Vijayagopal, P (2003) Nutritional responses in Indian white shrimp Fenneropenaeus indicus to varying protein: energy combinations in compounded artificial feeds. PhD thesis, Cochin University of Science and Technology.
Nutrient interactions and interrelationships cannot be ignored in nutrition research. Among the macronutrient interaction mechanisms studied calorie protein interaction is the first to be taken up in any animal either terrestrial or aquatic. Shrimp is no exception in this regard. Thus research in crustacean nutrition began in the laboratories of Dr. Kanazawa and Dr. Provasoli in the 1960s in Japan (Kagoshima University) and United States (Yale University) respectively. Dr. Kanazawa focused on development of test diets by modifying his own diets designed for silkworm, to study the absolute macronutrient requirements in Penaeus japonicus. His effort was 'with a vision to support the commercially successful shrimp mariculture in Japan then. Dr. Provasoli, motivated by his success in defining the nutrient requirements in the culture media for freshwater and marine algae, extended his work to define the nutrient requirements of certain crustaceans like Artemia and Moina, which consumed algae. Some of the first descriptions of macronutrient and micronutrient interactions came from him.
