The brine shrimp is found in inland salt water bodies such as the Great Salt Lake in northern Utah, on the rocky coast south of San Francisco, and in the Caspian Sea. They also occur in many other bodies of water with any salt content, including the intermountain desert region of the western United States, salt swamps near any coast, and many man-made saltpans around the world.
