Abstract
    A flow-through culture system is described for the controlled production of Artemia cysts in 10 liter aquaria using 50 promille artificial seawater enriched with Fe-EDTA as culture medium, micronised rice bran as food source and cyclic flushes of the cultures with N2-gas as induction mechanism for oviparity. The culture water is recirculated over a rotating biological contactor, a settling tank and a UV disinfection unit. Cysts are continuously harvested by filtration of the culture effluent. Production yields average 0.5 g dry cysts per day and per aquarium.
