PKC-NUTRI+: NOVEL FEED FOR INTENSIVE TANK PRODUCTION OF BRINE SHRIMP ARTEMIA

    Project Code: 207
    The main concept for this feed is able to promote better biomass, survival and growth of the brine shrimp Artemia, an important live food used in aquaculture, in tank system. PKC-Nutri+ is a low cost diet and serves as an excellent substitute for the use of expensive microalgae in brine shrimp biomass production.

Project Overview

PKC-Nutri+, a palm kernel cake-based emulsion was formulated by researchers of UMT as a novel inert feed to boost intensive biomass production of Artemia in tank system. The main ingredient comprised primarily of palm kernel expeller, a cheap agricultural by-product of palm kernel with additives of other nutritional components.
PKC-Nutri+ is a novel inert feed to boost intensive biomass production of Artemia in tank system. The advantages of using PKC-Nutri+

  • Easy to use; direct application
  • Boost biomass production in 14 days of culture
  • Promote better survival and growth of Artemia in intensive tank culture system
  • Maintain the nutritional composition of Artemia
