Five geographical strains of Artemia were compared for their effects on the survival and growth of Rhithropanopeus harrisii and Cancer irroratus larvae. High survival during larval development was provided by Artemia strains from Brazil, Italy, and Shark Bay-Australia. The San Pablo Bay, California-USA, and Great Salt Lake, Utah-USA strains did not support survival beyond megalopa despite good survival in earlier development stages. During early development, larvae feeding on San Pablo or Utah strains exhibited either slower development rates.
