Research Trials

Alpha Trial – Use More Artemia

Whiteleg Shrimp – Penaeus vannamei

Our Alpha Trial utilized Mackay Marine MP Feed with GSLA Artemia to assess survival of shrimp in a variety of feed scenarios. Below are the results for survival at stages PL7 and PL15.

PL7 Stage

The results demonstrated that at the PL7 stage we saw an increase in survivability above 70% and stable weights as we increased the level of Artemia to 4.3kg.


PL15 Stage

By the PL15 stage, we saw similar improvements in survivability up to 66.7% as we used 4.3kg of Artemia with weight again remaining stable across the different levels of Artemia.
