Rotifers are multicellular animals with body cavities that are partially lined by mesoderm. These organisms are valuable live food for larval fish and crustacean culture. Several characteristics of rotifers, including their nutritional quality, body size and relatively slow motility have contributed to their usefulness as good prey for active larvae (Snell and Carrillo, 1984). In general, rotifers have both nutrient content and a high rate of daily production (Lubzens, 1987).
