Two initiated stoking densities of artemia were issued (25 and 50 individuals / L. The results showed the best growth rate , mature adult number and survival rates were found in 4 grams Cow manure/L,at density of 25individual/L. A density of 6 adult /L being reared in 4 gram Cow manure /Lfedand artificial diet, Has monthly produced on artemia biomass 1.398 grams /L . Adult wos sexually matured on 12 days at a length of 3.5 mm and 3.75 mm and this phenomenon occurs for the first time in Iraq and survival rate of 89%for 6 grams Cow manure /L.
