Abstract
    Larval culture of fish and shrimp can be seriously improved thanks to the results of recent research and development in the field of Artemia production and utilization. The present article summarizes the most recent techniques for optimation in production and use of different stages of Artemia in aquaculture:- cyst selection in function of hatching quality, purity, biometric characteristics, etc. - nauplii production: techniques for hatching, disinfection and decapsulation;- nutritional value of nauplii: quantitative aspects with regard to essential components and contaminants;- bioencapsulation of nauplii with different enrichment components: methodology and results in fish and shrimp culturing;- utilization of (pre-) adult biomass for juvenile or postlarval feeding and as maturation trigger in shrimp;- extensive production of Artemia in salt pans or integrated in solar salt operations;- intensive production of Artemia using waste products from agricultural crops as feed;- bioencapsulation of adults with different enrichment products;- perspectives with regard to future use of Artemia in aquaculture.
