Abstract
    Cysts produced after inoculation with San Francisco Bay (SFB) strain Artemia were harvested and analysed at Artemia Reference Centre. Results obtained after nutritional analysis indicate a potential source of high quality cysts. Cyst hatching percentage, hatching rate and hatching efficiency was 61%, 24h and 173,400n/g respectively. Hatching percentage (H%) varied slightly with variation in salinity and peroxide treatment. Highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) content was representative of high quality cysts. This was also supported by the good growth performance in test with the marine Mysid, M. bahia M.
