About this Book

The importance of copepods in aquaculture has long been recognized, especially in the larval rearing of many marine fishes.

This timely publication provides a single source of information on copepod biology, culture methods and practical use in marine finfish hatcheries.

Originating out of a workshop held on copepods by the Oceanic Institute in Hawaii, this proceedings includes review articles and papers presented by leading international experts in copepod biology and aquaculture. It is a seminal work that integrates the most up-to-date information on selecting copepod species, effects of algal species on reproduction, ways to increase production, the nutritional value of copepods, behavioral characteristics of copepods, potential use of copepod nauplii and eggs, and their application to larval rearing of various marine finfish species.
