Abstract
    The respiratory physiology in 35 pro mille artificial seawater has been studied for four strains of adult Artemia . The scope of activity and the potential activity range were studied by measuring the respiratory rate of actively swimming and anaesthetized animals and the respiration of total homogenates. The experiments were carried out at temperatures ranging from 5 to 45°C. The lower lethal value for male and female Artemia from the four strains (Great Salt Lake, Macau and Sfax) being 5°C. The higher lethal value for male Artemia from Great Salt Lake, Macau and Sfax being 45°C, while male animals from San Francisco Bay only survive up to 35°C. Female Artemia from the four strains show a temperature tolerance up to 40°C, the measurements for the Macau strain illustrate the quick adaptability of Artemia to new environmental conditions.
