Abstract
    An updated list of more than 350 Artemia sites is provided. It includes geographical coordinates of the sites and available data on the mode of reproduction of the locally occurring brine shrimp.
    The geographical distribution of Artemia is related to different types of climate. The classification of climate according to Thornthwaite provides a good correlation with the geographical occurrence of Artemia , as a result of which the world distribution pattern of Artemia can be predicted. Moreover, areas with possible Artemia sites and areas suited for transplantation and/or inoculation with Artemia can be identified on the basis of water balance data. This is illustrated for three case studies (Peru, the Philippines and Sri Lanka). The relation between the biogeographical distribution of Artemia and its speciation in different sibling species as well as its reproduction mode is discussed.
