    Bi-directional selection for smaller naupliar size (SNS) and bigger naupliar size (BNS) was practiced to develop two divergent lines. The e⁄cacy of bidirectional mass selection in Artemia franciscana was evaluated by comparing the predicted genetic gains with the realized genetic gains. Two sets of predictions were made using two heritability estimates, e.g., the heritability estimate from full-sib analysis (h2) and the estimate from regression of o¡spring on mid parent (bop). Predictions with the full-sib heritabilities were of very high magnitude as compared with predictions with bop heritabilities.
