Aquaculture References

Thu Feb 9 16:58:54 EST 1995

        A while ago I requested information about the use of planktonic
ciliates as larval foods for fish or other aquaculture species.  Thanks to
all who responded.  One person suggested I post my findings, and given the
level of interest as guaged by the number of respondants, I thought is was
a good idea.  Unfortunately the list of published journal articles is
short.  There are some abstracts describing other projects, but no
publishable results resulted.  It is really not clear if the list is short
because of frustrations and failures at these types of experiments, or if
it really highlights an area of unexplored research.  If anyone knows of
other published reports, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.  There are
many recent and past articles examining ciliate:copepod links, but I have
not included them.   If anyone is interested in some of those references,
I'll be glad to send them along.

  Thanks again to those who responded.
