The effect of live and dry diets on the growth and survival of cultured chub (Leuciscus cephalus) larvae was measured from 5 days post-hatch and over a 24 days period. At its conclusion, larvae fed artificial dry diets were significantly shorter, weighed less and suffered higher mortality rates than those fed Artemia and a mixed diet of Artemia spp. and a commercial feed.
