Brine Shrimp Eggs

The universal live feed for all fish fry and invertebrates.

Small Artemia Cysts (San Fran-Strain):
80% Hatch


Great for first feedings of fish larvae, filter feeders, or seahorse; or whenever the nauplii of the Great Salt Lake strains are too large to ingest. Minimum 80% hatch-out.

The San Francisco Bay area and several other hypersaline biotopes are home to a species, or subspecies, of brine shrimp, often referred to as the "San Francisco strain" (or "San-Fran strain") of Artemia franciscana. The newly hatched nauplii of the cysts harvested from these unique biotopes are prized by serious fish breeders because of their uncommonly small size and generally higher HUFA value when compared to the Great Salt Lake strain of Artemia franciscana.

The San Francisco strain cysts represent only a tiny portion of all cysts that are harvested; and because of their limited number, they are expensive to obtain. They are intended for use during critical first feedings of fish larvae, when the nauplii of the Great Salt Lake strain of Artemia franciscana are too large for the fry to ingest.
