Artemia culture using rice bran as feed

Artemia culture using rice bran as feed

Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 35(5): 506-510

A suitable rice bran as feed for Kelambakkam (Indian) and San Francisco Bay (USA) strains of Artemia was evaluated. Culture experiments were performed in laboratory with two different types of rice bran, viz., specific, such as CO-43 boiled, CO-43 raw, IR-36 boiled, CR-1009 boiled and ATD-39 boiled and combined, such as fine huller, fine cone, common huller, common cone and defatted rice bran. Among the specific types of rice bran, CO-43 boiled was best for both Kelambakkam and San Francisco Bay strains. Common huller was most efficient feed for both strains among the combined types. The growth rate and fecundity values were higher in Artemia fed with CO-43 boiled and common huller suggesting that among the different varieties of rice bran available, processed CO-43 boiled rice bran offers an excellent feed source for Artemia.
