Manual on the production and use of live food for aquaculture
The manual describes the major production techniques currently employed for the cultivation of the major types of live food commonly used in larviculture, as well as their application potential in terms of their nutritional and physical properties and feeding methods.
Settlement, Growth and Survival of the Donkey’s Ear Abalone Haliotis asinina (Linne) in Response to Diatom Diets and Attachment Substrate
The effect of feeding four diatom diets (Amphora sp., Navicula ramosissima, Amphora sp. + N.ramosissima, and mixed diatoms) and two attachment substrates (PP+CCA: polyvinyl plates with crustose coralline algae; PP-CCA: polyvinyl plates without crustose coralline algae) were determined for seed production of abalone, Haliotis asinina
Better super feed for sea urchins
A new customised dry feed for sea urchins has generated international attention. Scientists at Nofima are now working on reducing production costs and adapting the recipe for large-scale production
Abalone Feed Requirements
This document provides a general summary of the European abalone (or ormer) Haliotis tuberculata feed requirements followed by a site specific assessment related to potential impacts. This document can be used as a template adapted to individual needs...Read More.

Growing Microalgae to Feed Bivalve Larvae
A high quality algae diet accelerates growth and shortens the time to larval settlement or spat set in many bivalve hatcheries...Read More
Improved nursery techniques of the sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus, by use of probiotics
The effect of applying probiotics during the culture of Apostichopus japonicas juveniles was evaluated during the nursery phase of sea cucumber, starting with 80-day-old juveniles.  
Effects of on-demand feeding on sea urchin larvae (Paracentrotus lividus; Lamarck, 1816), development, survival and microalgae utilization
Results of this study suggest that the use of the variable method improves the larval survival and development and also it reduces resource consumption (phytoplankton, seawater use and work effort), which in turn could potentially improve the hatchery production of P. lividus.
