USO DE LA LEVADURA TORULA (TORULOPSIS UTILIS) EN LA OBTENCION DE BIOMASA DE ARTEMIA.

Rafael Tizol Correa

Abstract


Studies were carried out to determine the possibilities of use torula yeast (Torulopsis
utilis), as a source of feed in intensive cultured Artemia. Maximum biomass yields of 5.14 g/l and
8.43 mm of average total length were obtained for the treatment with the best results. Yeast
concentration of 1 g/l/day in the initial 6 days period, can be considered adequate for Artemia
growth while the concentration of 1 g/l/day is insufficient to obtain a satisfactory growth. The
growth equations in the described culture conditions were as follow: treatment 1 g/l/day, L= -0.5214
+ 0.4837 T; treatment 3 g/l/day, L = -1.1707 + 0.738 T.
