Abstract: 

This research investigates on bioaccumulation of Ni and V in nauplius and adult of Artemia urmiana and Artemia franciscana in laboratory conditions. Four groups of nauplius and adult of two species of Artemia exposed to 0, .001, .002 and .003 mg/l of Ni and V. Bioaccumulation experiments showed that nauplius and adult samples, have the ability to accumulate these metals depending upon the concentration of the metal in the environment and were significantly different (p<0.05) from control group in both animals. Accumulation of metals increased with life length. In conclusion Ni and V were toxic but both species were tolerant. A. urmiana was more resistant during all experiments. Results also indicated that V was more toxic in compared to Ni in both species.
