Abstract A microencapsulated artificial diet was assessed against a standard diet of micro algae in rearing larvae of the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea commercialis (Iredale & Roughley). Unfed control larvae did not develop beyond the straight-hinge stage during the 8-day experiment, whereas those receiving exogenous nutrients, either microalgae or the artificial diet, reached umbone stage. The artificial diet supported larval growth in excess of 80% that of algae-fed larvae in terms of shell… CONTINUE READING
