Abstract
    Freshly-hatched Artemia nauplii from various geographical sources survived storage in a refrigerator (2-4°C) at densities of 2000 per ml and above. Except for Artemia from Chaplin Lake and Buenos Aires, naupliar viability was very high even after 48 h storage, and did not decrease significantly after a 24 h post-storage transfer to 25°C. Neither the naupliar dry weight nor biochemical composition changed significantly during refrigeration for most strains tested. Comparative culture-tests with stored and freshly-hatched nauplii as food for juvenile marine mysids Mysidopsis bahia M. and larval carp Cyprinus carpio L. revealed similar production performances.
