[…]this study demonstrates that bacteria can be used as food source for Artemia, especially when algal supply is limited. The nutritional quality of the in-situ produced bacteria might depend onthe standing C/N ratio and/or the carbon source supplied. In Artemia pond production, current management procedures intensively focuson the induction of a phytoplankton bloom as food for the Artemiapopulation (Anh et al., 2009b). Although our results still remain to be validated in pond production conditions, our study demonstrates that in specific conditions the bacterial flora may significantly contribute as a dietary source to Artemia performance, and that this is especially the case in algae-limited conditions
