Mysis shrimp are becoming increasingly popular in the aquaria industry, preferred by many over frozen brine shrimp and krill. Frozen Mysis makes an excellent food item for seahorses and other difficult-to-feed fish.

Brine Shrimp Direct's Frozen Mysis, often called "opossum shrimp," are invertebrate shrimp-like organisms. Morphologically speaking, they resemble a thin-shelled crayfish about 1/2 inch in length (max. length 30 mm).

Mysis (Mysis relicta) evolved from a salt-water species that slowly adapted to decreasing salinity in areas that were affected by melt water during the retreat of glaciers in the Pleistocene era. Mysis have circumpolar distribution and are found in Russia, Canada, and Scandinavian countries.

In the U.S., Brine Shrimp Direct's product is harvested from deep, cold, freshwater lakes in British Columbia, where the species was introduced as an important prey item for freshwater game fish.

Mysis contain relatively high levels of fatty acids and significant levels of highly unsaturated fats (HUFAs). Freezing ensures that the nutritional quality of the item is largely intact when fed to your fish.
