Starting date: 01/01/2004 End date: 31/12/2050
Programme: Aquaculture

Financing entities:


The objectives are:

  1. Designing diets and enrichment protocols of live prey adequate for the larvae of each one of the species.
  2. Setting a standard methodology of the enrichment process according to the administered enrichments.
  3. Study of the effect of enriched live prey on the larvae’s survival, growth, nutritional condition, resistance to handling and health.
  4. Once the specific requirements of each one of the larvae by the administration of enriched live prey has been established, development of commercial or non-commercial inert diets that can be used to totally or partially substitute enriched live prey.
