Freeze Dried Mysis Shrimp

Mysis shrimp are becoming increasingly popular in the aquaria industry, preferred by many over frozen brine shrimp and krill. Freeze-dried Mysis, because of its excellent fatty acid profile, makes an excellent food item for marine fish, breeding pairs and difficult to breed fish. Brine Shrimp Direct's Freeze-dried Mysis, often called "opossum shrimp," are invertebrate, shrimp-like animals, wild-caught and quickly freeze-dried to preserve nutritional value. Mysis (Mysis relicta, Neo-mysis, etc.) evolved from a saltwater species that slowly adapted to decreasing salinity in areas that were affected by melt water caused by retreating glaciers during the Pleistocene era. Mysis have circumpolar distribution and are found in Russia, Asia, Canada, the Scandinavian countries and in the U.S. Mysis contain relatively high levels of fatty acids and significant levels of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA's).
