Abstract Two geographic strains of brine shrimp (Artemia franciscana) nauplii were evaluated for nutritional quality as a food source for young sheepshead minnows (Cyprinodon variegatus). Although there was no mortality of fish fed either strain, fish reared on brine shrimp nauplii from San Pablo Bay, California, showed significantly greater growth than did those reared on nauplii from Macau, Brazil. The daily growth rate of sheepshead minnows measured over 32 days, was 0.42 mm/day.
