Baryon number generation due to the decay of particle-antiparticle pairs created from cosmic string loops is studied. In the situation when cusp evaporation occurs a significant baryon asymmetry (baryon/entropy ∼ 10-4 ε{lunate}: ε{lunate} is a net baryon asymmetry generated from one pair of particle-antiparticle) can be generated.
