Abstract

Feeding was always diversified, but mainly composed of 4 types of prey: from 2.9-2.5 mm, ciliates and veligers; from 4-7 mm, rotifers, up to 7 mm, crustacea. When ciliates were not included in the ration, the early trophic phase was disturbed. Growth was low, mortality very high and survivors often entered a critical stage. After a supra normal period of prospection, activity and feeding decreased, the larvae exhibited prelarval rest postures and then died.-from Sport Fishery Abstracts
