Advantages of brine shrimp as a live food. Artemia is considered by many to be the living food par excellence and this is not only due to its high nutritional value as there are clear added advantages that make it the most widely used live food worldwide. Artemia nauplii are a live food commonly used in fish and shrimp larviculture. As live prey they have an optimal size, are very nutritious and stimulate the feeding response: • They are small in size, ideal for feeding fingerlings. • They offer great efficiency in feed conversion. • Eggs can be stored for years. • It is very fast and easy to hatch or decapsulate the eggs. • A continuous culture of brine shrimp is not necessary. • They reinforce the hunting instinct of fish. • Does not require prior investment or experience.
