The Artemia Webinar is being hosted by Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI) in conjunction with the International Artemia Aquaculture Consortium (IAAC). The demand for Artemia cysts has continued to increase and annual consumption is now estimated at 3,500 – 4,000 tonnes. Asia is the largest producer and consumer of Artemia globally while Africa lags behind in both production and utilization of it thereof. This could be attributed to the under-development of marine hatcheries in Africa. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the diverse levels of Artemia activities in different African countries to explore opportunities and address the various challenges to improve the production and utilization of Artemia to improve livelihoods in Africa.
