The Art of Brine Shrimp Direct


Many of the illustrations of tropical fish that appear throughout this site (including the discus shown in the masthead above) are original works created by South African artist Sally MacLarty and commissioned by Brine Shrimp Direct. Ms. MacLarty has established a worldwide reputation in the field of natural history illustration. You can learn more about this outstanding artist at her Web site.

The illustrations of various fish spotlighted in the masthead area throughout most of the rest of this site are scanned from watercolors by renowned South American illustrator Yvonne Demonte, in particular her four-volume work, Peixes Fluviais do Brasil ("River Fish of Brazil").
