Abstract
    In order to alleviate the problems encountered when using live algae or rice bran as Artemia food in intensive culturing, different alternative types of brine shrimp diets have been evaluated. Using a high-density flow-through recirculation culture system, a Single Cell Protein yeast and mixed diets, consisting of this yeast and micronized waste products from agricultural corps, were selected as suitable Artemia feeds.Production yields after 2 weeks culturing varied from 2 to 5 kg live weight brine shrimp biomass per culture tank of 300 l. The mixed diets corn/soybean, corn/ wheat husks, and corn/yeast were found to be suitable or even better alternatives for the rice bran diet which is commonly used for feeding Artemia .
