Abstract
    The effects of several food items on larvae production and survival of the mysid Mysidopsis almyra were compared. A total of six diets were used. The diets were: 1) phytoplankton (Isochrysis galbana), 2) an artificial diet (Liqualife®, Cargill, Minneapolis, MN), 3) a mixed diet composed of both zooplankton (mostly copepods) and phytoplankton, 4) 750 mg g-1 of HUFA enriched Artemia nauplii and 250 mg g-1 of the artificial diet, 5) newly hatched Artemia nauplii (24-hour incubation at 28 °C) and 6) newly hatched Artemia nauplii enriched with HUFA (SELCO®, INVE Inc., Ghent, Belgium) for 12 hours. Mysids fed HUFA enriched Artemia nauplii (diet 6) had the highest production and survival rates, although not significant (P > 0.05), compared to diets 3, 4 and 5, while the phytoplankton and the artificial diet had significantly lower production and survival rates (p > 0.05).
