Abstract: A mathematical model of the production process of live feed to fish larvae is presented. The model is used as a design tool to construct a control system which ensures stable and controllable conditions for live feed organisms (rotifers). The simulation results demonstrate the effect of possible changes in the biological parameters and different operational routines.
