Aim:

To study the influence of diet composition on growth and feeding behavior in European lobster larvae/juveniles (Homarus Gammarus) under laboratory conditions .

 

Background:

European lobster is a potential new species in aquaculture, however, knowledge of nutritional requirements during juvenility is relatively low. No artificial pelleted diet exist for this species, which is required for further commercialized farming of this species  and knowledge about tailoring an optimal diet is therefore important.

 

Content:

Studies have shown that during early ontogeny diets based on frozen krill are far superior for survival and development of zoea stage (I-IV)  larvae of European lobsters than other live frozen feeds or artificial diets. In an experimental  set up with lobster larvae and later  juveniles kept in individual chambers, we  will evaluate  possible differences in growth and feeding behavior by feeding pelleted/extruded/gelatinized  diets based on krill meal and compare these processed feeds with  frozen krill. We will analyze various biochemical components of feeds, larvae and juveniles. The results will gain important  knowledge regarding future formulation of artificial diets for this species. 

Start: 1. June or 15 august
