Populations of 100 eggs hatched in small containers were used to determine the effect of six levels of Zooplankton feeding on the survival and growth of larval northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax Girard) over the first 12 days of life. During the sixth and seventh days after hatching there was a drastic mortality in containers receiving 1 copepod nauplius/ml/day or less, but not in containers receiving 4 nauplii/ml/day or more. Subsequent mortality was low in all containers and the size of… Expand
