Preliminary trials of combined Artemia rearing and salt production in earthen salt ponds in the Philippines

By Jurgenne H. Primavera, D. Estenor and P. Acosta


This 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 m<sup>2</sup> 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
