Abstract
    Seventeen geographical strains of Artemia , 13 bisexual and 4 parthenogenetic, were cultured through sexual maturity to select a strain which gives the best production in the St. Croix Artificial Upwelling- Mariculture System. Individual strains were compared for survival, growth, and time to sexual maturity. Dry and ash weight were determined on 100 couples (bisexual) or 200 females (parthenogenetic) from each strain. Total biomass (dry weight) production per strain has also been determined. Five strains were compared for the percent protein content of sexually mature individuals.
    On the basis of the results obtained, the best strains for use in the St. Croix System are the bisexual Artemia from Macau (Brazil), San Pablo Bay (California, USA), San Francisco Bay (California, USA) and Adelaide (Australia).
