The high cost of using live microalgae and the variations in nutritional value during larval culture constitute a problem for any operation relying on the massive culture of unicellular microalgae. The price of Artemia cysts in the international market and the increasing demand in Cuba, due to the development of the shrimp culture industry, has made the search of feeding alternatives that can of satisfactory diminish the live food consumption in shrimp larviculture, essential. Spirulina platensis meal (SPM), produced commercially in Cuba, has optimal nutritional characteristics to be used as a food ingredient in any aquatic animal culture. For that reason in this thesis we set out to improve the efficiency in the production of Litopenaeus schmitti shrimp postlarvae, through the inclusion of SPM in the feeding schedule by testing it: a) as substitute of fitoplanctonic food in the protozoea stage; b) feed additive in microparticulates in order to replace Artemia nauplii in mysis and p.....
