Progress on larval and juvenile nutrition to improve the quality and health of seawater fish: a review

Toshio Takeuchi, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, Konan, Minato, Tokyo, 108-8477, JapanThis review collates the efforts made during the past two decades in larval nutrition – focusing on advances made in the use of certain nutrients, such as docosahexaenoic acid, vitamin A derivatives, and taurine that are important for the mass production of seawater fish larvae and juveniles–with an aim to improve the quality and health of fish.

PROMICROBE: Microbes as positive actors for more sustainable aquaculture

The project starts from the concept that the host microbial community (MC) is influenced by the host itself and by the microbial community of the system in which the host is living. It is anticipated that there is a reciprocal interaction between the different compartments of the system in every stage of the life cycle.

Protein Requirement in Granulated Microdiets for Olive Flounder (Paralichthys oivaceus) Larvae

The optimal protein requirement in granulated microdiets was determined for larval olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus). Five granulated microdiets containing 42 to 58 % protein levels at a
constant energy level were prepared. Dietary protein requirement was estimated to be 55.4 % based on the RGR of the larval olive flounder.

Rotifers as live feed in shrimp hatcheries, Is still an open option?

M.R.Kitto* and Regunathan C.** *Assistant Professor, Faculty of Marine Science, King Abdulaziz University, P.O. Box : 80207, Jeddah 21589, Saudi Arabia. Email: **Aquaculture Specialist, 228 B, East of DVD School, Kottar, Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu, India. E mail : Author) Authors of this review feel that the cost for culturing live algae used for enrichment could be drastically curtailed in the new millennium by using agricultural fertilizers and the partial supplementary utilization of underutilized waste products like sterilized sardine pastes or sugarcane molasses extracts or rotifer culture media waste water and / or seaweed liquid fertilizer extracts of Ascophyllum or sterilized trash fish waste water. Modern technologies where probiotics are involved in shrimp larviculture, employing rotifers as starter live feed holds much promise as live-feed mediated delivery of probionts efficiently incorporates the benign bacteria to the targeted shrimp larvae...

Settlement, Growth and Survival of the Donkey’s Ear Abalone Haliotis asinina (Linne) in Response to Diatom Diets and Attachment Substrate

The effect of feeding four diatom diets (Amphora sp., Navicula ramosissima, Amphora sp. + N.ramosissima, and mixed diatoms) and two attachment substrates (PP+CCA: polyvinyl plates with crustose coralline algae; PP-CCA: polyvinyl plates without crustose coralline algae) were determined for seed production of abalone, Haliotis asinina

The influence of nutrition at the larval stages in marine fish

José Luis Zambonino-Infante, Giorgos Koumoundouros, Amos Tandle Larval deformities are mostly induced at the hatchery stage by several environmental factors (abiotic factors), diseases and some dietary components. This paper investigates the potential influence of some dietary vitamins in the appearance of malformations. The impact of the dose of the vitamin mix recommended by NRC93 was evaluates, and three vitamins in particular were studied: Vitamin A (retinol acetate), vitamin D (1,25 dihydroxycalciferol), and vitamin C (ascobyl polyphosphate).

The problem of meeting dietary protein requirements in intensive aquaculture of marine fish larvae, with emphasis on Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus L.)

Atlantic halibut are slow feeders and may thus suffer more from nutrient leaching than species eating more rapidly. Feed formulation techniques affect dietary protein leaching, and in this paper, different techniques and their impact on feed properties are described

THESIS: Digestive profile and capacity of the mud crab (Scylla serrate). By Marko Pavasovic, Queensland University of Technology

A key focus of the current study will be to use the mud crab, Scylla serrata, as a model system to determine the capacity of cultured crabs to digest protein and various classes of carbohydrates incorporated into formulated diets. Another goal is to determine if mud crab digestive processes or feed digestibility are altered by changes in the protein or carbohydrate profiles in the diet

Use of formulated diets as replacements for Artemia in the rearing of juvenile American lobsters (Homarus americanus)

In recent years, commercial Artemia replacement (CAR) diets have been developed and marketed for use in aquaculture production of marine shrimp. Three separate experiments assessed the utility of rearing American lobsters on these shrimp CAR diets
