    They have sold them over there for years, doubt we will get something like that here...but I do remember someone was selling adult live brine shrimp...just cant remember who it was.

    dont even bother...people forget u need permits etc to bring livestock into the country, its going to cost u more than its worth. The most likely situation is that they will get confiscated at customs :)

    I buy 10 packets every week of live adult brine shrimp. A lot of the Pet stores keep them in Gauteng.

    Butcherman is wanting live copepods and not brine shrimp. Live brine is very easy to get or do yourself.
