Why do my artemia nauplii keep dying?

There are a number of reasons why artemia nauplii die - ranging from the quality or contamination of the water being used, through the quality and amount of administered food, and hygiene conditions during breeding to the utilisation of suitable breeding containers. We recommend the German book “Artemia – Der Urzeitkrebs” by Oliver Drewes and published by VIVARIA Verlag. This book uses numerous microscope images and drawings to describe the seven currently recognised types of artemia. After a detailed description of the special reproductive biology, the most successful breeding systems are presented. A chapter entitled “Artemia in der Aquaristik” provides practical tips on how, for example, to improve the hatch and survival rate of nauplii and artemia.
