Dear all,

I work for a shrimp culture company and among our many projects to make this
industry sustainable, we want to try breeding marine polychaetes to replace
fish meals.

We are looking at three species in particular: Perinereis nuntia, P.
capensis and P. vancaurica. And I would be interested in any information
relating to the possibility of rearing these species on a large scale. What
can they be fed?, what kind of substrate do they need? Also if anyone knows
where we could get a starting stock of these, it would be very helpful.

Finally does anyone have a copy of any of these?
