Crypthecodinium cohnii: a promising prey toward large-scale intensive rearing of the live feed copepod Acartia tonsa (Dana)
Description: Autotrophic microalgae are in general used as prey for copepods in laboratory experiments and in aquaculture mass culturing. The authors of this scientific article tested the suitability of using the osmotrophic thecate dinoflagellate Crypthecodinium cohnii as an alternative prey for the live prey organism for fish larvae, the planktonic calanoid copepod Acartia tonsa.
