The water characteristics were TDS 0. Ortiz, CNCR1 specimen. According to these authors, recommendable densities are about larvae L -1 ; low densities imply mcarobrachium available nauplii per larvae, but also more surplus nauplii in the culture which negatively affects water quality and has a negative effect on survival Lavens et al.
