Effects of food on the growth of Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) larvae

M. Kalyanasundaram


The effect of different concentrations of algal foods on the growth of the larvae of edible oyster Crassostrea madrasensis was studied in the laboratory. Of the different algal concentrations (5, 10, 20, 40, 80 cells/ mul) of Isochrysis galbana fed, the maximum growth obtained at the concentration of 40 cells/ mul. The mixed diet (I. galbana and Chaetoceros calcitrans 20 cells each) was also found to be best food for these larvae
