Growth of the Shrimp, Penaeus aztecus, Fed a Diet of Live Mysids (Crustacea: Mysidacea)
Commercial brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus) were shown to consume large numbers of mysid shrimp (Mysidopsis almyra) under laboratory conditions. Growth of shrimp fed a diet of mysids was comparable to growth of shrimp fed a diet of Artemia nauplii. It is suggested that mysid shrimp may serve as a food source for juvenile penaeid shrimp in northwestern Gulf coast estuaries.
