DOI : 10.4194/1303-2712-v19_5_09 Viewed : 736 - Downloaded : 436 The quality of Artemia cysts size can be determined by biometrical characterization. In this study, the combined effects of salinity and ferric citrate were studied on the biometric characterization of Artemia by single clonal reproduction under the laboratory condition. Results of control treatment showed increasing of the salinity correlates non-significant with diameter of decapsulated cyst and negatively correlates with the size of untreated cyst and chorion thickness. The effect of low concentrations of ferric citrate (5 and 10 mg/L) led to release the largest cysts in low salinity (35 ppt), while in high concentrations of ferric (20 and 40 mg/L) the largest cyst was released in medium salinity (70 ppt).
