Live foods..culturing

Ive been posting in the freshwater area but though this might be a saltwater issue as well..
I was wondering if there was a good resource online for live food cultures. sources to get live foods for raising for personal use. Daphnia is of particular interest to me.. black, micro, blood worms would be nice information as well. any information on cultivation of live food would be nice.. thanks in advance..

This link is mainly for mariculture but something there may help you out.
Rotifer cysts can be found in many LFS's much like brine shrimp cysts. They can then be cultured using phytoplankton or cryopastes.
