Abstract

The importance of the brine shrimp, Artemia in larviculture was recognised for the first time when Scale (1933, Trans. Am. Fish. Soc.. 63 : 129-130) described the value of the nauplii of Artemia as an ideal food for fish fry. Later several investigators found that the freshly hatched nauplii of the brine shrimp are the most suitable and also very convenient food for the early larval stages of various species of fishes and crustaceans.
