Two experiments were performed in order to determine the effect of dry foods with live Artemia nauplii on the growth, survival, rate of cannibalism and length-weight relationships of Clarias gariepinus larvae. It was found that Artemia -supplementation resultes in a significantly higher growth rate. The "condition", expressed as a length-weight relationship, was likewise altered after supplementation. The survival and rate of cannibalism were not influenced by supplementation. Artemia -supplementation of dry foods was compared with other approaches which are based on the concept of the 'adaptation weight'.
