Sea Monkies

This Youtube Video tells the story of Harold von Braunhut who made a fortune selling brine shrimp from the Great Salt Lake as Sea Monkeys. He marketed the product through comic books.

Brine shrimp was being sold worldwide as fish food. The shrimp can survive in dry form as a cyst when hatches when combined with water.

Mr. Braunhut was of Jewish descent. He allegedly attended some KKK rallies and Aryan Nation events.
