Abstract
    Contrary to the rearing of brine shrimp at laboratory scale which is current practice and well described in many papers, specific information on the high-density culturing of this species is scanty. This paper briefly reviews the different culturing methods precognized so far and discussed the advantages of batch culture in air-water-lift raceways: the latter technology has been optimized during the last 4 years at the Artemia Reference Center and permits a current production of 2 kg biomass/m³ in 2 weeks culturing at 25°C.A detailed description is given of:1. construction of the raceways: tank design and characteristics and selection of materials: construction, positioning and operation of the air-water-lifts;2. techniques for water heating and heat insulation;3. equipment and methods for (semi-)automatic food distribution;4. separation-techniques for continuous removal of faecal pellets from the culturing medium;5. culture procedures.
