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

    Project Code: 309
    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
The brine shrimp Artemia is a branchiopod crustacean and an excellent live food used in aquaculture. They are very nutritive and widely used in the culture process of many aquatic organisms. Artemia can be applied in many forms (e.g. decapsulated cysts, umbrella stage nauplii, nauplii, juveniles or adult biomass). Biomass production of the brine shrimp Artemia often relies on the successful production of microalgae, of which it serves as a major food source for aquatic organism.

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
