Abstract
    A flow-through system is described for the controlled production of Artemia nauplii. High densities of adult brine shrimp are induced to ovoviviparity through diet manipulation, optimal culture water exchange, and high constant oxygen levels. The nauplii produced are separated from the culture tank effluents in a special recuperation filter system. The culture water is recirculated over a rotating biodisc, a cross-flow sieve, and a plate separator.The potential of this nauplii production system for application in aquaculture hatcheries is discussed.
