In the present study, by using accumulated information of Mithraculus forceps larval and juvenile rearing, survival, growth/size and productivity models were developed, allowing for optimization and improvement of the culture methodology of this species. By taking into account the productivity, we estimated larval optimal conditions as: 60 larvae.L−1 and 10 Artemia nauplii.mL−1. For juveniles we estimated optimal conditions as: 12900 crabs.m−2 and feed juveniles with Artemia nauplii, if possible supplemented with Amphora microalgae.
