Özet

The free-living nematode Panagrellus redivivus was used as a feed to replace microalgae during the protozoeal (PZ) stage of Penaeus indicus and Artemia nauplii during the mysis and early postlarval (PL) stages. The nematodes promoted higher survival and similar growth and development when fed as an Artemia replacement. Adequate feeding density of the nematodes was 30/ml during PZ stages and 60/ml during subsequent stages to metamorphosis.
