They are also known as Brine shrimp or artmia.

FWIW you can buy brine shrimp cysts at any aquarium store and hatch them in saltwater. the aquarium store has saltwater mixes as well.

Savethemall, if you wanted to release them you'd have to take them back to the Great Salt Lake in Utah. They evolved to live in very salty water, much saltier than the ocean. If you want to try to keep them alive, ask the internet and YouTube for advice - a quick search using "keeping brine shrimp alive" turned up lots of results for me. No idea how to keep them from breeding ... but they might require very specific conditions to breed; just keeping them alive might be a challenge. I've hatched them, but I've never kept them longer than a few days.
