However, shortest development time was recorded for larvae fed live Artemia. In a second experiment, zoea III larvae were cultured communally at a density of 25 larvae l- 1 and were fed either 100% live Artemia nauplii, 100% MBD or a 50%:50% combination of MBD and Artemia. Highest survival (66%) and development rate to the zoea IV stage were recorded for larvae fed the 50%:50% combination of MBD and Artemia. Some successful molts were also found among larvae fed MBD exclusively, while total mortality was observed in unfed (control) replicates. The results indicate that the experimental MBD may contain certain beneficial nutrients lacking in Artemia and that co-feeding the MBD with Artemia may enhance larval survival and development. However, they also show that total replacement of live food with the experimental MBD will result in poor survival of zoea III larvae of S. serrata. The results indicate great potential for the use of MBD particles as dietary components for both zoea and megalopa stages of S. serrata. These findings have important implications for the eventual development of cost-effective and reliable hatchery techniques for mud crabs. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.

Determination of the amount of 14C-labelled nutrient leaching from MBD bound with various binders after 30, 60 and 240 min of immersion showed that for all types of binders, 14C leaching occurred primarily within the first 30 min of immersion. Zein-bound MBD consistently showed the lowest numerical leaching rate among the five binders tested for all immersion periods examined, and the differences compared with other binders were often significant, particularly after 60 and 240 min of immersion. Larval feeding experiments showed that MBD prepared with binders showing higher rates of leaching were not utilized to a greater degree by S. serrata larvae. Furthermore, unnecessary leaching from MBD particles wastes dietary nutrients and is likely to impact on water quality. On this basis, our results suggest that because of its consistently lower leaching rates, zein is probably a more suitable binder for MBD developed for S. serrata larvae. © 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.]]> Fri 30 Jan 2015 10:03:07 AEST ]]> Molecular characterization of a vitellogenesis-inhibiting hormone (VIH) in the mud crab (Scylla olivacea) and temporal changes in abundances of VIH mRNA transcripts during ovarian maturation and following neurotransmitter administration Fri 26 Jul 2019 14:03:39 AEST ]]> Morphology and organization of muscle fibres in the thoracic coxal muscle receptor organ and the associated promotor muscle, in a crayfish, Cherax destructor, and mud crab, Scylla serrata Fri 07 Nov 2014 13:25:53 AEST ]]>
