Abstract
    Although extensive fundamental research has been performed on the brine shrimp, the yields from hatching and culturing this organism which is widely used in mariculture, can be greatly improved. By exposing the immersed cysts to light and by using a new type of hatching cylinder and separator box, greater hatching and separation efficiencies can be obtained. Controlled mass culture of brine shrimp larvae to the adult stage has been extremely difficult until now; the literature on the subject is reviewed and a new technique of high density culturing at the pilot-stage is described.
