Zooplankton, Foundation of the Marine Food Chain

Reed Mariculture has revolutionized the culturing of rotifers with their marine microalgae concentrates, and is now doing the same with copepods. For example, the Apocyclops panamensis copepod can be produced by feeding it only Reed Mariculture's Instant Algae™ concentrates. Reed Mariculture will be making A. panamensis available to hatcheries in Q2 2017.
