Home >> Aquarium Exhibits >> Incubator


An important aspect of the Cabrillo Aquarium, the incubator is vital to our operations. We use it to raise brine shrimp, a form of zooplankton, which makes up the majority of the diets for many of our marine animals.

Brine Shrimp are hatched every 24 hours and are used to nourish the filter feeders in our salt water tanks.
