Tisbe pori n. sp., from the Mediterranean coast of Mikhmoret, Israel, was cultivated in the laboratory and is described. The relative food values of 9 species of marine algae were evaluated according to the copepods' development time (length of period from hatching to reproductive maturity). Individuals fed on Dunaliella tertiolecta or D. primolecta developed the fastest. The rate of feeding of the adults on Dunaliella primolacta was determined. In the temperature range 17° to 31.5°C, the shortest development time (7 days) was at 26° to 28°C. The range of salinity tolerated by adults was 26 to 48permil.
