Abstract:Population density, fecundity and reproduction period of Artemia sp. in Tuz Lake, Turkey, beside environmental factors, such as oxygen, temperature, salinity, pH and electrical conductivity were studied during 1993 and 1994. Artemia sp. occurred at two stations at the coast. Overwintering cysts hatched in early May, when the population was composed of 90% metanauplii (93%at Y4 and 99% at Y5) and few adult females. Peak abundance occurred in late May, at 106 to 114 ind.m^-3.
