The larvae of most fish species have relatively low enzymatic activity if compared to adult specimens, low hydrolysis and nutrient absorption capacity, making the supply of live feed essential during that life stage, as it assists the digestion process in three ways: 1--donating digestive enzymes from the body itself; 2--releasing enzymes that perform autolysis of the organism itself; 3--activating zymogenes of the predator; and 4--donating neuropeptides that favor digestive processes (KOLKOVSKI, 2001).
