Storing Brine Shrimp Eggs
First of all, you need to start with healthy, properly stored eggs. All brine shrimp eggs need to be stored as follows:
- in a tightly sealed container;
- free from moisture; and
- in a cool environment at or below 50°F. (Refrigeration is ideal for short term storage, i.e., less than three to four weeks; for longer term storage, eggs are best kept at or below freezing.)
We recommend that upon receiving your eggs, dividing them into an amount that will be consumed within three to four weeks and storing this amount in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator; the remainder should be stored, also in a tightly sealed container, in the freezer. Keep in mind that freezing can lower metabolic activity and delay hatch-out. We suggest removing egg from the freezer one day in advance of using it.
The above storage guidelines apply to all brine shrimp eggs, whether in opened or unopened tins.
