Oyster larvae producers say information sharing and perseverance are seeing them through a prolonged stretch of high larval-stage mortalities.
European sea bass have been raised in the favorable climate of the Middle East since 2000. For effective larval rearing of sea bass, the authors recommend the use of temperature-controlled water with about 35 ppt salinity and good aeration in
In Peru, some wild cockle communities have been so overfished that total fishing bans are being considered. A project was therefore established to develop sustainable spat production as a crucial step toward the implementation of a conservation strategy for blood
Single-cell detritus is a seaweed-based bioproduct whose use as feed has been studied with oysters and artemia. The authors are working toward the development of SCD for shrimp larvae.
Research with sturgeon and carp species indicated that encapsulated artemia has high potential to carry probiotics or other beneficial microorganisms.
Most marine fish have pelagic eggs with large pools of free amino acids of fairly constant proportion regardless of species. The amino acids provide energy for metabolism and are an important nutritional asset for growing embryos.
