First successful microdiet for paralarvae of the common octopus

The Aquaculture Research Group (Grupo de Investigación en Acuicultura, GIA), from the University of Las Palmas Gran Canaria (ULPGC), managed to rear paralarvae of the common octopus Octopus vulgaris up to 73 days after hatching, when they started to show benthic behavior. The research carried out by the GIA-ULPGC, funded by "Internal Projects of the ULPGC ("Proyecto propios de la ULPGC"), represent an important achievement towards the integral rearing of this species. For the first time, post larvae of common octopus were obtained without including crustacean zoeas or any other kind of fresh food items in the diet of the paralarvae.
