dc.description.abstract An experiment lasting 14 weeks was conducted to compare the efficiency of live adult Artemia with fresh squid meat on growth of penaeid shrimp Metapenaeus dobsoni. The shrimps were found actively feeding on live Artemia and grew 84% more than those fed with squids. The intermoult period significantly differred between the diets. It is suggested that the presently unutilised rich source of adult Artemia in salt pans and salt lakes could be used as an important ingredient in the preparation of quality shrimp feeds
