the batch system in mono-specific cultures. They are

TrochoFeed is a cryopreserved
starter feed for larval marine fish. It is a
suspension of living trochophore-stage Pacific oyster
larvae in seawater, cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen
until the moment they're needed. Trochophores are an
ideal first feed for larval marine fish because they
are 50µ, free-swimming ciliated organisms that are
extremely high in nutritional value.
