Decapsulated brine shrimp (artemia) offer the following advantages
compared to the non-decapsulated eggs:
- Cyst shells are not introduced to the fish as they are chemically removed.
- The shells often become lodged in the fish’s digestive track and result in higher mortality rates.
- Decapsulated brine shrimp have a higher energy content because they use little or no energy to hatch-out of their shell.
- Due to the hypochlorite solution, the eggs becomes thoroughly disinfected, therefore reducing the bacteria introduced in the water and the fish.
- Non-hatching decapsulated brine shrimp is a ready-to-use, energy-rich food source.
- The embryo of non-hatching decapsulation has a smaller particle size (200-250 µm) which are more suitable for smaller fish than freshly hatched brine shrimp (400-450 µm).
