Description 
Summary

Comparative studies on the lipid content and composition of the brine shrimp Artemia sp. held in captivity and captured in the wild (cysts and adults) during different seasons of the year. Also of special emphasis is the study of the influence of diet on Artemia sp. lipid content and composition and their influence on larvae growth and survival of several marine species with interest in marine aquaculture, e.g. sea bream, shrimps and cuttlefish.
