Use More Artemia – Alpha Trial

Great Salt Lake Artemia has conducted numerous research projects with a U.S. University to identify optimal shrimp feeding programs in the PL stage.  The Alpha trial used Mackay MP Feed with GSLA Artemia to assess survival and weight in a variety of feed scenarios.

The results demonstrated that at the PL7 stage we saw an increase in survivability above 70% and stable weights as we increased the level of artemia to 4.3kg.

By the PL15 stage we saw similar improvements in survivability up to 66.7% as we used 4.3kg of artemia with weight again remaining stable across the different levels of artemia.

We would like to help you get the best value and performance from your artemia.  Contact us if you would like to learn more or receive guidance on how much MP and Artemia to use in your hatching operations.

Use More Artemia – Beta Trial

A second trial conducted by Great Salt Lake Artemia with a U.S. University reviewed the results of combining Mackay MP and GSLA Artemia in the PL15 to the PL35 stages.  

The results demonstrate that at PL15 from 4.8kg to 5.9kg of artemia we see a significant improvement in survivability from 51.4% to 62.1%; however, we do not see an improvement from 5.9kg to 8.1kg of artemia.  The differences in weight are not statistically significant, so the impact of using additional artemia is about survivability.

At PL35, we continue to see a significant improvement in survivability as more artemia is used; however, at this stage we did see a statistically different result in weight at 14.9kg and 18.1kg driving weight to 0.83g and 0.91g.
