Wechselbeziehungen zwischen Standardlange und Antennenschuppenlange wurden fur Mysis relicta aus funf Seen bestimmt. Zusatzlich wurden auch sehr signifikante Wechselbeziehungen zwischen Gesamtlange und Antennenschuppenlange (r = 0,996, P = 0,001) fur eine Probe von Mysiden aus Lake Michigan gefunden. Die Benutzung der Antennenschuppenlange wird fur zukunftige Untersuchungen von Mysis relicta als ein genaueres Mass der relativen Grosse empfohlen.

Using Diets to Reveal Overlap and Egg Predation among Benthivorous Fishes in Lake Michigan
Ecological stability in the Laurentian Great Lakes has been altered by nonindigenous species, such as the Round Goby Neogobius melanostomus and dreissenid mussels, and by declines in native amphipods Diporeia spp, and whether predation on eggs of native species was occurring.
Size-frequency estimates of secondary production by Mysis relicta in Lakes Michigan and Huron
Conservative estimates of P, {xxB} and {xxD} were calculated for collections from a 50-m station in Lake Michigan despite the larger populations suspected to be present at greater depths sampled in the other studies, providing a basis for scaling trophic interactions involving M. relicta populations in the Great Lakes.
Life history, habitat utilisation, and biomass of introduced Mysis relicta
The results indicate that the light intensity in the green part of the spectrum gives the proximate cue for regulation of vertical distribution of M. relicta, indicating that juveniles partly segregate between benthic and pelagic habitats.
Size-frequency estimates of secondary production byMysis relicta in Lakes Michigan and Huron
Data from five Great Lakes studies ofMysis relicta populations were reanalyzed to calculate secondary production estimates using the size-frequency method. Production estimates (P) ranged from 0.25
Continued feeding on Diporeia by deepwater sculpin in Lake Huron
Examining the diets of deepwater sculpin Myoxocephalus thompsonii collected in bottom trawls during 2010–2014 provides unique insight into the trophic dynamics of the benthic community in Lake Huron.
Diet of Mysis relicta in Lake Ontario as revealed by stable isotope and gut content analysis
Revised daily consumption estimates, based on this new diet information and clearance rate estimates of consumption, gave daily consumption Estimates similar to those estimated from previous bioenergetic modelling.
The effects of an experimental freshwater cage aquaculture operation on Mysis diluviana
The results indicate that declines in hypolimnetic oxygen associated with nutrient enrichment can have severe impacts on populations of Mysis.
Diet and bathymetric distribution of juvenile Lake Trout Salvelinus namaycush in Lake Huron
The spatial distribution of their capture in bottom trawls at six ports in Lake Huron during October/November 2008-2017 and diets of wild and hatchery-origin fish captured were summarized to better understand the ecology of juvenile (<400mm) Lake Trout.
The effects of an experimental freshwater cage aquaculture operation on Mysis diluviana
Following establishment of the cage farm in2003, densities of Mysis decreased from an annual average of 85 m to 75 m, and the concentration of hypolimnetic oxygen was decreased and the density of phytoplankton increased.
Evaluating the importance of abiotic and biotic drivers on Bythotrephes biomass in Lakes Superior and Michigan
Using generalized additive models, temperature, and not fish consumption nor zooplankton prey density, best explained variability in Bythotrephes biomass.


Life history of Mysis stenolepis Smith (Crustacea, Mysidacea)
A 17-month field study showed that Mysis stenolepis in Passamaquoddy Bay, New Brunswick lives for about 1 year, during which the males die and the females survive and in spring migrate to shallow waters to release young after which they die.
Growth, Life History, and Respiration of Mysis relicta in an Arctic and Temperate Lake
Results of respiration experiments were not significantly different, indicating that Mysis relicta demonstrates no metabolic compensation over its environmental temperature range, and generalized energy budgets were constructed for individuals from each population for their entire life-span.
The net ecological efficiency (yield/assimilated) of a population of Metamysidopsis elongata (Crus­ tacea, Mysidacea) is estimated to be 32 %. The gross ecological efficiency (yield/ingested) is
Pontoporeia and Mysis in Wisconsin Lakes
Pontoporeia and Mysis are two crustaceans which are of special interest because they belong to a group of fresh water animals that are regarded as " marine relicts." These relict forms are found in a
The Vertical Migration of Mysis relicta in Lakes Huron and Michigan
The optimum light intensity for mysids is so low that they are concentrated near the bottom during the day, but as the light decreases at sunset, they move upward rapidly; possibly because of a positive reaction to decreasing light.
Abundance and Life History of Mysis relicta in the St. Lawrence Great Lakes
Size-frequency distributions from the various cruises on lakes Superior, Huron, and Ontario indicated differences in life cycles of the mysid in the three lakes, with highest numbers found in Lake Superior, followed by lakes Ontario and Huron.
