Artemia franciscana, Peru strain, was cultured under different diets-based in microalgae and nutritious inputs with the aim to determine the feasibility to produce adult Artemia biomass. A completely randomized design experiment was carried out, with seven treatments and three replications each one. One way variance analysis (ANOVA) and the Turkey test were used to analyze the data to establish significant differences among treatments. The results of biochemical analysis showed that soya bean diet fulfilled the protein content needed for a proper growth of A. fransiscana. This diet also showed the best growth rate (0.19), highest biomass production (113.13 g), best food conversion ratio (1.4) and a protein content suited for crustacean broodstock maturation (53.38%).
