Note(s): The effects of four kinds of foods (Artemia nauplii, rotifer, and microalgae Chaetoceros gracilis and Isochrysis galbana) and four temperature regimes on survival and development of larval Lysmata wurdemanni, a marine ornamental shrimp, were determined. The larvae fed with Chaetoceros or Isochrysis only survived for a maximum of 17 d, before developing to zoea IV. The survivorship of the larvae fed with Artemia nauplii or rotifer from zoea II to post-larvae was 66.7% and 68.9%. respectively, without significant difference (P > 0.05). But larvae fed with Artemia nauplii grew significantly (P < 0.05) faster than those fed with rotifer. Larvae fed with Artemia nauplii reached postlarvae in 29–32 d, compared with 32–36 d in the rotifer treatment.
