An optimized method, using polyclonal antibodies in all immunoassay, for prey detection ill the diet of paralarvae of South African Loligo reyaudii is described. The study has increased the specificity of the antisera by determining the optimum antiserum dilutions and the detection limits of the antisera. Unfed laboratory-hatched paralarvae (negative control) were exposed to antisera and showed cross-reactions, with polychaete antiserum.
