  • Theoretical analyses show that positively buoyant copepods are able to generate feeding currents by adopting upside-down body positions and pushing water upward. Thus, the excess buoyancy acting on the copepods will be balanced and cone-shaped feeding currents generated to transport water to the capture areas. The intensities of the feeding currents, which can be measured in the present modeling study by calculating the volumetric flux going through the capture areas, are proportional to the… CONTINUE READING
