In Algeria, the presence of Artemia is confirmed at five sites, among which the hypersaline Sebkha Ez-Zemoul, a shallow depression situated in a semi-arid region in the northeast of Algeria at 900 m above sea level. Four species of crustaceans were found to be associated here with Artemia salina: Phallocryptus spinosa, Cletocamptus retrogressus, Moina salina, and Heterocypris sp. During the wet periods of the years 2003 and 2004, A. salina and C. retrogressus were the most frequently observed. P. spinosa co-occurred with A. salina during a short period in January 2003 and May 2004. The densities of the various species were higher during the first wet period (2003) when the water was diluted, and thus less saline. Salinity undoubtedly is an important factor controlling the population dynamics of these species.
