Abstract: Red porgy has been proposed as a candidate for diversification of marine aquaculture production (Hernández-Cruz et al., 1999). However, limited larval survival together with the elevated levels of skeletal deformities occurrence (over 50% of the population), under intensive or semi-intensive systems constitute the major bottlenecks for the production of this species at commercial scale (Roo et al., in press). Essential fatty imbalances on early life stages, may alter the osteological development of reared larvae (Cahu et al., 2003). The objective of this study was to determine the effect of rotifers enrichment, particularly on DHA, on growth, survival and occurrence of skeleton deformities in red porgy.
