Description

It is known that Artemia spp. increase their speed in warmer water. What is not known is how much of this increase is due to the decreased viscosity of the liquid at higher temperatures, and how much is due to the increased metabolism of the Artemia spp. at higher temperatures. We developed an automated system for tracking the motion of multiple objects in 3 dimensions. This system could be used to calculate the motion of Artemia spp. in a temperature and viscosity controlled environment. From that one could determine what the effects of these variables are on Artemia spp. motion.
