Abstract
    A research program was carried out to improve and facilitate rotifer (Brachionus plicatilis) culturing as well as to assure their optimal nutritional quality as a prey, concentrating on the development of a dry and complete rotifer diet that does not require the use of algae and does result in a HUFA rich Brachionus. The present poster provides results dealing with culture aspects and rotifer nutritional quality. Different diet compositions based on single cell proteins enriched with various nutritional additives were evaluated. Results obtained so far demonstrate that a selected formula of a combined culture and enrichment diet, that does not involve the use of microalgae at all, can be successfully used for growing and enriching rotifers.
