A series of experiments using serological reagents was conducted to examine predation, ingestion and digestion in a model predator-prey system. The harpacticoid copepod Amphiascoides atopus, obtained from mass culture, was used as prey and the grass shrimp, Palaemonetes pugio, as predator. Bulk-gut passage time in P. pugio was measured by visualization of latex beads and ranged from 0.5 to 4 h in starved and continuously-fed grass shrimp. A polyclonal antibody was prepared from crude extracts… CONTINUE READING
