    Rotifer is the most commonly used live feed upon transition of the larvae from endogenous (internal energy reserves) to exogenous (external) feeding in larviculture. Artemia (Brine shrimp) is another important live feed, most commonly used at completion of the rotifer stage and prior to conversion of the larva to an inert feed. It represents the transitional feed for the larvae, after which artificial feeds can be used. Brine shrimp is typically a primitive crustacean belonging to the class Branchiopoda with a total length of about 7-12 mm. This is a unique marine organism, which can withstand and survive in a wide range of salinity. It is widely distributed and more than 50 strains have so far been recorded across the world.
