Abstract
    The use of decapsulated Artemia cysts as food for chub larviculture was investigated. After three days feeding with the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus, the larvae were fed on different diets: (a) dried decapsulated Artemia cysts, (b) Artemia nauplii, (c) rotifers for 1 more days and then Daphnia collected from a pond, and (d) an artificial diet. After a 24-day rearing period, the highest survival rate was obtained with the larvae receiving decapsulated Artemia cysts. Feeding of the larvae with an artificial diet resulted in a significantly lower survival rate compared to the other groups. At the end of the experiment, the larvae fed on Artemia nauplii yielded significantly higher mean length compared to the other groups. Feeding an artificial diet resulted in significantly lower average weight and mean length gain compared to the other groups.
