Paracyclops fimbriatus can be easily cultured as a food source for juvenile fish. The crustacean can be fed protozoans living in sewage sludge and in hay infusions. When properly fed, the cyclopoid densities can be as high as 1000 000 inds/dm3. Methods of culture and harvest of the crustaceans are described. Data on length and biomass of all the 12 developmental stages are reported as well.
