INVE presents sustainable innovation for shrimp hatcheries

November 13, 2020  By Hatchery International staff

INVE Aquaculture offers an upgrade to its SEP-Art technology suite with new tools for shrimp and fish hatcheries.

The three new products – HandyMag, CystTM 2.0 and AutoMag – allows all hatcheries to produce higher quality brine shrimp (Artemia nauplii) in a standardized and efficient way. These tools are based on the Artemia SEP-Art technology, which was originally launched in 2008.

Traditionally, Artemia nauplii are separated from cysts using a double sieve or a decapsulation method which can cause mortalities in the nauplii, quality issues and is often labor intensive. INVE’s SEP-Art technology consists of cysts covered with iron particles which are attracted to magnets, leaving nauplii in the solution.

“We have been working on this innovation over two years and are now very pleased to bring our new tools to the market,” said Geert Rombaut, product portfolio manager. “Efficiency is an important part of any aquaculture production system and we hope that these tools will support the healthy growth of fish and shrimp and our customers’ businesses.”


Belgium-based INVE Aquaculture is part of Benchmark Holdings, a leader in applied biotechnology for aquaculture production.
