We cultured Streptocephalus proboscideus using rice bran as a food source, and compared its growth, mortality, fertility, and cyst hatching with published data on animals fed other food sources. We also analysed the fatty acid profile of animals and cysts. The performance of rice-bran fed shrimp was indistinguishable from that of shrimp fed most other formulated diets, but there are indications that some previously applied diets were either defective in essential fatty acids, or toxic.
