Table 3 Neutral lipids, phospholipids, free reducing sugars and polysaccharides (mean ± SD, n = 9) in the early developmental stages of the clam Ruditapes decussatus under three levels of nutrition: starvation and two mono-specific diets (Isochrysis aff galbana = T-iso and Chaetoceros calcitrans = C.cal)
