Early Weaning with High Performance Larval Feeds

Dr Luís Conceição, CEO and R&D Director, SPAROS Lda, Portugal

Research and development advances in the development of high performance larval feeds, that promote early weaning and improved juvenile quality will be discussed in this presentation. This will include the important question on whether we need matching larval feeds for individual species, or rather, if one diet may fit all (or several) species. The importance of feed management and hatchery practices on optimal larval nutrition, growth and juvenile quality will also be analyzed.
