online instructions for brine shrimp say the cysts need to be refrigerated, but it seems to me they are often sold unrefrigerated, do i need to buy them refrigerated, or is this only after the package is opened?

I keep refrigerated both before and after opening. The metabolize a little while in cyst where low temperature slows that down. Ideally we buy the stuff once per year so we try to stretch shell life as much as possible. I also purchase from supplier where it is assumed not to have been sitting on a shelf for very long.

No, just vacuum packed in cans. Most I get is is from Brine Shrimp direct purchased as case of 12 cans each containing 454 g of cysts. Usually purchase two cases at a time. The version we get is the premium grade.
