Abstract
    The aim of this study is to improve rearing device of Crepidula fornicata (Mollusca: Gastropoda) reported in the literature, by determining the best arrangement between densities and feeding frequency in reared enclosures. Optimal growth (26·4 μm d−1) and survival rates (55·1%) were obtained when larvae were reared at 500 ind l−1 and fed every two days.
