For effective aquaculture, a good quality fish seed is essential, however, seed production is typically intensive and health management of both, brood and seed fish, can be critical (Little et al., 2002). If a hatchery seed is not of good quality, it may compromise cultivation, slow growth rate and induce poor survivability or disease resistance (Shah et al., 2018). One of the main challenges to achieving this high-quality fish seed is the quality of feeding, the adequate supply of nutrients, both in terms of quantity and quality (Carter, 2015).
