Brine Shrimp Eggs 90% Hatch Rate
Reefphyto's Brine Shrimp eggs originate from Siberian lakes and are renowned for their exceptional quality. For every gram of cysts, a minimum of 225,000 baby brine shrimp can hatch within 24 hours of incubation. The latest harvest boasts an impressive hatch-out rate of over 90%.
The Grade, A Brine Shrimp Eggs, are in high demand among commercial breeders due to their elevated yield of nauplii. The eggs are dispatched in UV-protective plastic pouches to ensure their safety during transportation.

Reefphyto Brine shrimp eggs offer several benefits due to their unique characteristics and properties. Some of these benefits include:
Nutritional Value: Brine shrimp eggs are rich in proteins, essential amino acids, and fats, making them a nutritious food source. They are commonly used as feed in aquaculture and for rearing tiny aquatic organisms like fish larvae and fry.
Long Shelf Life: When stored properly, Brine shrimp eggs have a long shelf life. This quality is advantageous for maintaining a steady and reliable food source for aquatic organisms, especially when live foods are unavailable year-round.
Easy Cultivation: Brine shrimp are relatively easy to culture, meaning their eggs can be hatched and grown into live brine shrimp with minimal effort. This aspect benefits hobbyists, educators, and researchers who require a live food source for their aquatic organisms.
Size Suitability: Brine shrimp nauplii (newly hatched brine shrimp) are tiny and well-suited for feeding small fish, fry, and other aquatic creatures with similarly small mouths. This characteristic is crucial during the early stages of growth when appropriate-sized food is essential.
Hatching Flexibility: Brine shrimp eggs can remain dormant until conditions are favourable for hatching. This flexibility allows for timed hatching to coincide with the needs of the fed organisms.
Stimulates Natural Hunting Behavior: Live brine shrimp exhibit natural swimming movements in the water, stimulating many aquatic species' hunting and feeding instincts. This can be particularly useful for encouraging proper feeding behaviours in captive fish.
Enhances Growth: The nutritional profile of brine shrimp makes them an excellent supplementary or primary food source for raising fish and other aquatic animals. Regular consumption can contribute to healthy growth and development.
Educational Use: Brine shrimp eggs provide an educational opportunity, especially for students, to learn about aquatic ecosystems, life cycles, and food chains. Observing the hatching and growth of brine shrimp can be a hands-on learning experience.
Research Tool: Various scientific studies have used Brine shrimp eggs to investigate environmental conditions, food availability, and impacts on aquatic organisms' survival and growth.
Sustainable Harvesting: Brine shrimp are found in various saltwater habitats worldwide. Harvesting their eggs sustainably can provide a renewable resource supporting commercial and recreational activities.
It's important to note that while brine shrimp eggs offer these benefits, they are best used as part of a balanced diet for aquatic organisms. Relying solely on brine shrimp or any single food source might only meet some of the nutritional needs of the animals in the long term.
