Mysis Shrimp have been the primary food source of reef aquariums for years and years. The small shrimp like crustacean is much like brine shrimp but contains much higher nutrient levels while still being an enticing food source for marine fish. This brackish water species of mysis is a great primary food source for freshwater or saltwater fish.
In Canada’s pristine, glacier-fed Okanagan Lake, Mysis Shrimp are an invasive species. Each live catch helps to improve the sustainability of the Kokanee Salmon population by reducing competition for their fry’s food. These wild-caught Mysis Shrimp are naturally low in sodium, and high in protein and fatty acids which makes them ideal for most freshwater or saltwater fish. The mysis shrimp are harvested at night when they will naturally rise to the surface to feed on zooplankton and phytoplanktons naturally gut-loading the shrimp and increasing the digestible nutrients.
Feed only as much as your fish will consume in a 1 minute period multiple times a day. It is best to feed very small amounts multiple times a day over a single large feeding. Fish will naturally graze and scavenge for food throughout the day and by offering different foods multiple times a day will mimic their natural feeding instincts and lead to better coloration and overall healthier fish.
