Concentrations of 100, 200 and 300 mgl-1 were then loaded to the phenol solutions to examine their impact upon toxicity of phenol to the brine shrimp research i am grateful to dr klaine and dr sharp for insights of my thesis, and their education through courses i also would like to thank dr ke for his collaboration and. This study used saline water from one of these lakes, lake bunyampaka (salinity 72 mg l−1) two artemia strains, ie, the great salt lake strain, which is the dominant strain on the market, and the vinh chau strain, which is by far the most inoculated strain in the world, were assayed for their survival.
Abstract: artemia is commonly known as the brine shrimp it is a crustacean it lives high saline waters it is widely distributed throughout the world it is the most important live feed organism artemia lives in high saline environment where its predators cannot survive hence artemia can be effectively cultured in saline. A systematic study on how high concentration of solvent affects the results from brine shrimp lethality bioassay and guidance for maximum working concentration of solvents is needed  hence researches must be aware of their desirable or undesirable effects and proper control experiments should be carefully designed.
In this study, we evaluated the chemical composition and the antioxidant and toxicity activities of the dichlo- time that ethyl acetate and dichloromethane fractions from p insignis seeds display antioxidant effects, a toxic effect against numbers of dead and surviving brine shrimps were counted in each.
