How much brine shrimp eggs to buy for a spawn?

Hi, all. I was going to buy this little BSB hatchery and was shocked to find that a pound of brine shrimp eggs from the same place is $120. How many spawns would such a can likely supply, and how long would it last in the freezer before it went bad? Is that a ridiculous amount to buy if you're just starting out? Is there a better source for them?

Thanks! So I won't need anywhere near a pound. That's good. :)

Well I have a small 3oz can and it was pretty cheap and I'm fairly close to my second week with my fry and believe be a little goes a long way haha so that little can should be more than enough for a few spawns but just try one first like I'm doing to just test how far you can get. Good luck!
