Abstract
    Although there exists an obvious inclination to replace live larval food by formulated feeds, Artemia nauplii are still essential in the larviculture of marine fish species. So far, on-grown Artemia are rarely used in larviculture although they offer several advantages over Artemia nauplii: e.g. they contain a higher individual protein and energy content thus improving the fish larvae's energy budget; an equal amount of live food is reached with far less individuals thus a considerable saving of Artemia cysts; their composition of (n-3) highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) may easily be improved by applying enrichment techniques. This study deals with the development of lipid-enrichment techniques adapted to the intensive culture of on-grown Artemia.
