Salinity and Hatching Brine Shrimp Eggs
Great crustaceans! Does more or less salt in the water create super shrimp? Make your own seawater and discover how salt helps or hinders hatching.
Brine shrimp are tiny crustaceans that live in salt water. This means that they’re related to crabs, lobsters, and other shrimp. However, brine shrimp are much smaller than other shrimp, and they make intriguing pets. In this experiment, you’ll see how different amounts of salt change the hatching rates of brine shrimp.
