  Fishes, like other organisms, require an energy source to fuel their body systems and processes. There are five periods in the lifespan of fish identified as embryonic, larval, juvenile, adult and senescent. In all these events larval stage is the most critical phase of life of fish where a huge mortality concerns are observed. A major bottleneck in the commercial production is high mortality rate during larval rearing. There might be several reasons for this high mortality rate such as lack of brood care, improper management, lack of knowledge on optical stocking density, lack of standardized rearing environment etc. In addition to these nutritional requirements of most of the species is unknown especially during early stages.
