The bright orange colour of this artemia indicates good health, specifically the presence of carotenoids, which contribute to the colour, fertility, and immunity of prawns and fish.
Fish are so attracted to the taste and smell of artemia that it is also being developed as an attractant to make plant-derived protein more palatable to fish.
The carotenoid-rich artemia will be sold under the trade name NutremiaTM, or through licensed distributors to the aquarium market.
Another advantage of this new source is the nutritional profile of the artemia, which are fed a lush diet of carotenoid-rich algae.
Cognis 'supply of artemia is nutritionally superior, as well as reliable and renewable.
Using closed systems and naturally hyper-saline conditions, Cognis is able to produce artemia in a way that greatly reduces bio-security risk.
The next step for Cognis 'artemia project is to commercially produce artemia eggs, or cysts, to supply the aquaculture industry.
The artemia project has been jointly funded by the DoFWA, FRDC and Cognis Australia Pty Ltd.
The global demand for cysts is currently served by harvesting wild blooms of artemia from salt lakes.
Cognis 'artemia production is a closed system, the first in the world of its kind, and does not rely on harvests from salt lakes which are at the mercy of changing weather and ecological cycles.
