Buoyancy and water stability are therefore critical characteristics for the development of successful formulated diets. Jones et al. (1993) reported that the herbivorous larval feeding strategy employing a short gut retention time and low assimilation efficiency relies on a fast turnover to balance metabolic requirements and hence is well adapted to utilise artificial diets, which are relatively indigestible. In contrast, M. rosenbergii larvae have a long gut retention time to extract maximum energy from ingested prey. Diets should therefore be highly digestible, providing energy in a form that can be most efficiently used. However, at present the knowledge of specific nutritional requirements of prawn larvae are yet to be fully documented (Chapter 12).
