Production and Preservation of Artemia


Most of the aquatic animal species of commercial interest which are grown in intensive hatchery systems have to be offered a live food throughout their life cycle (Kinne and Rosenthal 1977). Zooplankton, the natural food of fish and shrimp larvae, is very difficult to culture on a commercial level. As a result the efforts of early pioneers to rear marine fish were hampered by inadequate and unsuitable larval food supplies (Shelbourne 1968).
