Larval Feeds and Feeding

Jean Dhont, Mathieu Wille, Mike Frinsko, Shawn D. Coyle and Patrick Sorgeloos

This chapter discusses the nature of the feeds necessary for the culture of freshwater prawn larvae. Artemia play an essential role as a larval diet in freshwater prawn hatcheries. We therefore pay special attention to the supply and processing of Artemia cysts. The natural nutritional quality of Artemia and its enhancement are also reviewed, before their specific use for feeding freshwater prawn larvae is discussed. Partial alternatives to Artemia, both live and inert, are also considered. While the feeding strategies used in research and commercial freshwater prawn hatcheries are detailed in Chapters 5 and 12, the present chapter provides additional background on this topic.
