Artemia & Rotifer Cysts

Miami Aqua-culture, Inc. offers a wide selection of larval shrimp and marine fish diets including Rotifer eggs, live microalgae cultures, and two different strains of Artemia cysts. Most larviculturists are familiar with the high quality eggs we provide harvested from The Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA. In addition to this industry standard, we now offer Artemia cysts collected from San Francisco Bay. These eggs are smaller than those from the Great Salt Lake, producing newly hatched nauplii of 434 microns in average length. Compared to Salt Lake nauplii of around 475 microns, the smaller San Francisco Bay nauplii are ideal for larvae or fry too small to take Salt Lake nauplii. San Francisco Bay nauplii are also much higher in Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acids. HUFA assays for the 20:5n-3 and 20:6n-3 fatty acids are typically 3 to 3.5 times higher than levels found in Salt Lake nauplii.

Below you will find our selection of Artemia and Rotifer cysts as well as an assortment of Artemia culture feeds and enrichments. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice as the Artemia market can be highly volatile. Pricing will be confirmed at the time of your order.
