Appendix II. Decapsulation Procedure for. Artemia Cysts. Hydration. 1. Hydrate cysts by placing them for 1h in water (less than g l 1), with aeration, at 25°C. In order to ensure the highest nutritional value, Artemia cysts should be decapsulated prior to hatching. This will disinfect the cysts, remove the. The present paper describes the technology developed by the authors for the routine decapsulation of Artemia cysts. The advantages which.

To hydrate the egg fill the Imhoff cone with 1 liter of warm fresh water tap water is fine.


Hydrated Cysts are ready for Sodium Hypoclorite Bleach. Introduce the artemia eggs into plastic containers. Remember we are just trying to hydrate the egg…not hatch-out the egg. This involves the need for a large quantity of brine shrimp eggs. Dwcapsulation for 5—8 minutes until the decapsulation reaction is complete. Many hatcheries and brine shrimp harvesting companies use decapsulation to get a greater return from lower grade egg.

Wash the eggs in the filter bag with water once artfmia. To store the decapsulated brine shrimp make a saturated salt solution using a pop bottle.

After cleaning transfer the eggs back into the plastic containers. Decapsulation consists of chemically removing, in a hypochlorite solution, the shell or chorion of the artemia cysts and leaving only the embryo. The amount of time and temperature decapsualtion the artemia cysts are exposed to the hypochlorite solution will determine whether the artemia will hatch-out or be non-hatching decapsulated artemia.


Lately the techniques for hatching have been improved. Preservation of decapsulated artemia eggs in refined salt is more efficient fecapsulation preservation in brine.

Eggs decapsulated by either process give the same result. Coloration change 2 minutes. Add lime CaO at the rate of FAO declines all responsibility for any discrepancies that may exist between the present document and its original printed version.

Artemia eggs can be preserved in this manner for a long time. The salt will dehydrate the eggs. Additionally the technique for the preservation of decapsulated artemia eggs has been improved by a more efficient method.

The embryo is literally cooked! Siphon all these eggs out and discard if the quantity of incompletely decapsulated eggs is large however, they can be stored in refined salt until the next decapsulation process.

Wash them with several changes of clean water to remove the smell and presence of dissolved chemicals. They are then ready for hatching or storage in refined salt until required. These small eggs look dimpled when they are dehydrated. The fact that the eggs can be preserved for a long time makes it convenient to hatch them whenever necessary. Add the hydrated egg into sodium hypochlorite and aerate again from the bottom.

A modified technique has been developed whereby decapsulation is conducted decapeulation using calcium oxide and calcium hypochlorite as stimulating agents. Brine shrimp harvesting companies usually produce the non-hatching decapsulated artemia, and sale them as a non-hatching ingredient to aquaculture feed producers that make flake and pellet feeds. The artemia is a very tiny animal which has no shell. This electronic document has been scanned using optical character recognition OCR software.

Its body is enclosed in thin tissues. This is done by dissolving as much salt in warm water as you can.


Then add bleaching powder at the rate decapsulatipn Monitoring the color is very important if decapsulating for live hatchings. Dimpled or Dehydrated Brine Shrimp.

Decapsulation of brine shrimp eggs was originally carried out with sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite at the Chacheongsao Fisheries Station.

Pour off the water produced and store the eggs in shade at normal room temperatures. The result of this experiment proved that chemical substances that are cheaper and more readily available in the Thai market, such as lime CaO and bleaching powder calcium hypochloritecan be used as stimulating agentsin the decapsulation of artemia eggs.

Proceedings of the World Mariculture Society, 9: Leave the artemia eggs at this stage for 45—60 minutes. Add a small amount of water. Stir until mixed thoroughly.

Decapsulated Brine Shrimp | Salt Lake Brine Shrimp

Do this by again rinsing the egg in cold fresh water using the filter or brine shrimp net. This experiment introduced new chemical substances for use in the decapsulation process and investigated ways and means of improving and modifying the technique at different stages.

Thoroughly rinse until the odor of bleach is gone.
