Abstract
    The importance of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) such as 20:5omega3 and 22:6omega3 has been investigated for the larvae of the blue shrimp Penaeus stylirostris. HUFA-rich or HUFA-enriched Artemia nauplii yielded higher production results in the hatchery than HUFA-poor Artemia especially when yeast was used as a substitute for algae during the early larval stages. Best results were obtained when a HUFA-rich formulated diet was used as a supplement to the yeast and as an enrichment for the Artemia nauplii. Differences in production results could be attributed to the HUFA content in living and non-living larval diets.
