between the use of Artemia and the survival rate of the larval haddock. This cost tradeoff

is studied in the next chapter.

The live feeds costs represent a large percentage of the total yearly operating

budget for a hatchery producing haddock. Since live feeds are not needed for many other

aquaculturally produced species, such as salmon, haddock production may be more costly

than most other types of culture.
