Brine shrimps are a very important part of the Great Salt Lake ecosystem. They are the main source of food for migrating birds that stop by the lake. They also help clean the water by controlling the levels of nitrogen, phosphorus and other waste products around them.
This is a common name for the species Artemia Salina. In fact, their shape is similar to that of shrimp, but they are crustaceans. They are not related to the shrimp you find in the wild but they can be seen all over the world. They are commonly used to feed fish in aquariums and are one of the most favorite pet foods. Although they live in salt water, they can not be found in the oceans because they have many predators there. They can grow in saltwater lakes from the inland as it is a relatively safe place for them.
The speed with which they grow is very fast. They can go from larvae to fully grown adults in just two weeks. Meanwhile, their size increases very rapidly. If there are no predators, the pace of their growth is fascinating.
They will lay in the fall and winter and their cysts (eggs) will float on the surface of the water during these two seasons. Once it's been started, the eggs will hatch. Once hatched, the juveniles will begin to grow very quickly. At birth, they have only one eye, but as they grow, they develop two eyes.
One of the particular aspects of their lifestyle is to stay dormant for a very long time. In adverse conditions, their cysts may remain dormant. These cysts are very hard and can withstand almost any environment. So, even if the temperature fluctuates a lot, they are able to survive. They can survive successfully in deserts for 10 years. This is possible because of their ability to lose and recover their intracellular water. Interestingly, these cysts were chosen for experiments in space because of their small size. Scientists have been able to discover the effects of radiation on cells!
They are considered the best food for many species of fish. You can store them in many ways. You can keep them in the fridge and they will stay there for several days. Once you get the amount, you can warm them up and give them a food before giving them to your pet. They will lose their nutritional value if they are not enriched before offering to the fish.
