Artemia nauplii are by far the most commonly used food when it comes to captive breeding and husbandry of jellyfish. On their own they are not very nutritious but after enrichment (feeding the artemia various fatty substances) they become nutritious enough to sustain some species of jellyfish.

Bellow is the growth curve of Aurelia sp. (since ephyrae) normally seen in captivity when they were fed with enriched Artemia nauplii (2-3 times a day)
