Abstract
    Crassostrea gigas spat were fed diets of Pavlova lutheri, Dunaliella tertiolecta or Tetraselmis suecica. The D. tertiolecta diet contained no fatty acid longer or more unsaturated than linolenic acid (18:3?3) and the T. suecica diet was deficient in decosahexaenoic acid (22:6w3). The algal diets were supplemented with micro-encapsulated triolein, oyster lipid extract or 22:6w3. Spat were also starved or fed carbohydrate diets.
