Copepods in aquaculture.


Copepods in aquaculture.

Ed. by Cheng-Sheng Lee et al.

Rotifers and brine shrimp nauplii are commonly used as live food for early stages of marine finfish in hatcheries, and scientists from around the Pacific gathered in Honolulu in May 2003 to share information about culturing these copepods in hatcheries and the basic biology of various types of copepods with potential application to larval rearing in hatcheries. The 17 peer-reviewed papers presented here discuss such aspects as the potential to mass-culture harpacticoiod copepods, managed versus balanced nutrition in maximizing the nutritional values of copepods, and intensive and extensive production techniques to provide copepod naupliii for red snapper larvae. A final chapter summarizes the conference.
