Rotifers Refrigerated Shelf Life

Rotifers shipped from Reed Mariculture will be packaged in "breathable bags" at 6 C. They will be shipped in insulated boxes and contain gel ice packs to maintain that temperature. Upon arrival the rotifers should either be used immediately or put into a refrigerator at 4-8 C. The effective shelf live of rotifers is:

Rotifer Shelf Live from date of harvest
1-4 days 95%
4-7 days 85%
10 days 50%
14 days 30-40%

Before adding the rotifers into your system please follow our directions for setting up your Rotifer Culture.
