[Annelida] Feeding polychaetes to shrimps

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
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?

In advance, thank you for your help,
