Instructions for Artemia Enrichment:
- Using a high speed blender, blend 0.4 grams of HUFA Enrichment Powder into 500 ml. seawater for 8 minutes at high speed.
- Stock gently rinsed 24-hour old artemia nauplii into a clean, aerated 1-liter capacity container filled to the 500-ml. mark with clean seawater. Stock artemia at a density of approximately 100 nauplii per ml.
- Add 250 ml of enrichment solution at Time 0 and again 12 hours later. Provide ample aeration.
- After 24 hours, harvest and feed enriched nauplii to larval shrimp or fish.
[Quick math: 100 nauplii per ml. times 500 mls. = 50,000 nauplii. If you hatched out one gram of cysts the previous day (approx. 275,000 cysts per gram) and assuming an 80 percent hatch rate (220,000 nauplii); 50,000 nauplii would represent about 1/4th of your total hatch to be placed in the 500-ml container.]
