SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1979 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterThe authors report on the production of Artemia obtained on a 0.5 ha pilot project with combined trials in Artemia rearing with solar salt production during the dry seasons and with production of milkfish (Chanos chanos) fingerlings and/or prawn (Penaeid sp.) juveniles during the rainy season in the Philippines.
Preliminary trials of combined Artemia rearing and salt production in earthen salt ponds in the Philippines JH Primavera, D Estenor & P Acosta - In G Persoone, P Sorgeloos, O Roels & E Jaspers (Eds.), The Brine Shrimp Artemia. Proceedings of the International Symposium on the brine shrimp Artemia salina, Corpus Christi, Texas, USA, August 20-23, 1979., 1980 - Universa PressThis paper describes trials at combining Artemia rearing with salt production during the dry season, in newly-constructed earthen salt ponds (reservoir, evaporation, concentration, and crystallization ponds, total area of 5,000 m2 at the Leganes, Iloilo Station of the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department. Salt production by the solar method amounted to 250 sacks of slat over 30 days or an average of 8 sacks/day (1 sack = 50 kg). Two successful Artemia inoculations were undertaken in May and June 1979 respectively : in both cases the adult stage was reached after 1 week. The May population died off when the salinity was suddenly increased by salt addition. The June population gradually disappeared at the onset of the rainy season.
