The feeding of 6 copepods (Calanus finmarchicus, Acartia tonsa, Centropages hamatus, C . typicus, Labidocera aestiua, and Tortanus discaudatus) was examined with 3 different foods-a ) diatoms ( Thalassiosira flt~uiatilis) alone, b ) diatoms plus Artemia nauplii, and c ) Artemia alone-and compared with the structure of their mouth-parts. Calanus finmarchicus is predominantly an herbivore, but in absence of plant food can definitely capture small motile animals. Acartia tonsa is a typical… CONTINUE READING
