Has anyone since this thread appeared found a source for Giant Fairy Shrimp (Branchinecta Gigas) eggs?  Arizonafairyshrimp.com is currently out of stock.  Out of curiosity, are they edible?  I see that ducks and shorebirds like them.  Thanks.

 

 

Somewhere many moons ago i read that native americans ate them. Around here I've found fairy shrimp in an old aquarium i put outside empty, over a few weeks of rainy weather it filled up and I was getting ready to drain it and noticed something swimming around. Fairy shrimp had evidently been carried by the rain! I've never seen any quite like them, they were fast and difficult to catch. All the others I've seen in vernal pools were slow and easy to catch. That was 8 years ago, hasn't happened since...
