Abstract
    Larvae of the Chilean-Peruvian scallop Argopecten purpuratus were fed a Dunaliella tertiolecta diet (Dun-diet) supplemented with lipid emulsions, rich in 20:5n-3 (EmEPA), 22:6n-3 (EmDHA) or in saturated fatty acids (EmCOCO). A mixed algal diet of Isochrysis galbana (T-iso) and Chaetoceros neogracile served as a positive control (St-diet). Lipid supplementation to the Dun-diet improved the larval growth and increased the percentage of eyed larvae significantly, compared to the non-supplemented Dun-diet because of the extra energy supplied and not because of its fatty acid composition. No significant differences were observed between supplementation with EmEPA, EmDHA or EmCOCO. A mixture of 20% EmEPA+20% EmDHA (40% EmHUFA) was more efficient in raising the total lipid content in larvae than 40% EmCOCO. Both emulsions increased the triacylglycerol content in larvae compared to the non-supplemented Dun-diet. The best result, however, was obtained with the St-diet, probably because of a more suitable 18:2n-6/18:3n-3 ratio and a higher level of arachidonic acid. A positive relationship between the 18:2n-6/18:3n-3 ratio and the larval performance was found. No significant difference was observed in post-settlement larval size or percentage of metamorphosed larvae between the St-diet and the St-diet supplemented with 20% EmHUFA or 20% EmCOCO. The metamorphosed larvae had a constant DHA/EPA ratio of 3.7, independent from the diet, which suggested a metabolic control of the two fatty acids and a species-dependency of the ratio.
