Artemia cysts and newly hatched nauplii from Australia, Brazil, Italy and the United States (California and Utah) were analyzed for their total lipid level, total fatty acid level and composition, and their energy content in an effort to evaluate their lipid nutritional value as diets of marine organisms. Results are compared to biological data from a nutritional evaluation of these five Artemia strains on various marine organisms. The total lipid, fatty acid methyl ester and energy levels of all strains appeared to be adequate to promote good growth and survival of the marine organisms.
