Abstract
    Unlike Artemia nauplii which are used extensively as convenient live feed in aquaculture, large-scale utilization of Artemia juveniles and adults (biomass) is still very limited and in most cases restricted to those operations which are located near an Artemia production site. Currently applied techniques for preservation of Artemia biomass (e.g. blast-freezing or drying) are often cost prohibitive and in several cases not applicable at the remote and scattered sites where the Artemia biomass is available. An inexpensive technique which can be readily applied under field conditions and allowing to stabilize and retain the nutritional quality of Artemia at ambient temperatures, would greatly enhance the exploitation of this resource for aquaculture. The present study reports on the use of acid-ensiled Artemia as a direct food source or as dietary ingredient for postlarvae of penaeid shrimp.
