SEP-Art Technology

Your Ultimate Nauplii Separation Solution

SEP-Art Technology

SEP-Art is a patented technology that provides a magnetic coating on the Artemia cysts allowing for complete separation of the nauplii from the shell at the time of harvest using passive magnets. SEP-Art delivers 100% live Nauplius suspension, improves Artemia hatching yields over traditional separation methods, and improves enrichment kinetics.



SEP-Art’s complete separation technology delivers 100% nauplii.

  • Provides high value from maximum yield
  • Yields high-quality live Artemia utilizing magnetic separation eliminating the need for harsh chemicals
  • Improves enrichment kinetics of Artemia


Survival Rate

  • SEP-Art technology’s magnetic coating on the Artemia cysts allows for a safe, low-impact method to remove unhatched cysts and shells utilizing magnetic tools – leaving behind a clean, 100% nauplii suspension
  • Improves nauplii survival through SEP-Art’s magnetic separation resulting in enhanced enrichment

of Supply

We are committed to the sustainability of our natural resources through dedicated conservation and responsible harvest management. Over 20 years ago, the State of Utah, in partnership with the Artemia industry, implemented a science-based management system aimed at optimizing the Artemia population and cyst production, resulting in a stable and sustainable supply of quality Artemia from Great Salt Lake.
