Abstract: 1) It was found that Balanus glandula and Chthamalus dalli ingested four unicellular green algae (Platymonas sp., Stichococcus sp., Chlorella sp., and Dunaliella viridis) and two diatoms (Nitzschia closterium and N. closterium minutissima). 2) Nauplii of both barnacle species survived longest on Platymonas. 3) Greatest growth and development for both naupliar species was provided by a Platymonas diet. Chlorella and Stichococcus do not promote larval growth.
