About 20 species of zooplankters (copepods, mysids, euphausiids, sergestids, and Scyphomedusae) are commercially fished and utilised as food or feed today. The annual world catch of crustacean zooplankton is probably a little less than 210,000 tons and accounts for 11% of the total crustacean catch in the world. The present status of plankton harvesting in various parts of the world is described. Problems in development of plankton fisheries are discussed. 
Molecular genetic variation and fisheries of Mesopodopsis orientalis (Crustacea: Mysida) in Indonesian waters, with remarks on fisheries of Acetes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
This chapter discusses the structure of the population of MESOPODOPSIS ORIENTALIS in Indonesia and its role in genetic diversity and phytochemical fingerprinting.
Studies on taxonomy and ecology of Mysidacea from the EEZ of India
Four species of mysids collected from the Minicoy lagoon are reported. Amsomysis minicoyensis sp. nov. is distinguished from the related species by the shape of the rostrum, the relative length of
Fisheries on Mesopodopsis (Mysida: Mysidae) and Acetes (Decapoda: Sergestidae) in Indonesia
Edible crustaceans belonging to mysids and Acetes have been studied in Indonesia based on field sam plings at fishing grounds and buying materials. Interview surveys were also conducted at public
Iridoviruses of copepods: their identification, estuarine ecology and host histopathology
TLDR
Zooplankton Invertebrate Iridescent viruses were discovered infecting copepods and the virus ultrastructure and host infection sites were described.
Feeding ecology of two sympatric species of Acetes (Decapoda: Sergestidae) in Panguil Bay, the Philippines
TLDR
Gut fullness peaked during July to September for both species, with a minor peak during January for A. intermedius, and stable isotope analysis revealed similar δ15N values, but both species showed ontogenetic and interspecific separation of δ13C.
CURRENT STATUS OF MYSID TAXONOMYIN SOUTHEAST ASIA
TLDR
There is an urgent need for research to improve the understanding of the biodiversity of mysids in Southeast Asia, where about 20 % of the recent species of these orders so far reported in the world are recorded.
Distribution and abundance of mysid shrimps (Crustacea: Mysidacea) in the Northern Indian Ocean
TLDR
In the Arabian Sea, maximum mysid abundance occurred during the inter-monsoon (IM) period, but in the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea abundance was highest during the northeast monsoon (NEM).
Food and feeding habit of taiwan mauxia shrimp Acetes intermedius in the coastal waters of Southwestern Taiwan
TLDR
The results obtained in this study supported the hypothesis that A. intermedius performs a nocturnal vertical migration to avoid predators and to allow for safe feeding.
Trophodynamics of two interacting species of estuarine mysids, Praunus flexuosus and Neomysis integer, and their predation on the calanoid copepod Eurytemora affinis
TLDR
It is concluded that intraguild predation exists between the two species but is one sided with small N. integer being strongly suppressed and heavy predation pressure is modified by the addition of alternative food resources, in this case, E. affinis.
Preliminary studies onIndomysis annandalei (Mysidacea, crustacea) from Karachi waters with a brief account of its larval development
TLDR
Population, seasonal abundance of the mysidIndomysis annandalei Tattersal from Karachi waters (northern Arabian Sea) are studied and developmental stages are described.

Copepoda as an Article of Food
DURING recent years a good deal has been said amongst marine zoologists of the use, as a food supply, that might be made of the enormous numbers of Copepoda that swarm in the surface-waters of the
Prospects of the Utilization of Krill and Other Nonconventional Resources of the World Ocean
TLDR
The most urgent task is to develop commercial fisheries among animals at the second trophic level, the zooplankton, the most promising of these are the crustaceans, especially the krill of the antarctic, Euphausia superba, which occupy areas of the ocean south of theAntarctic convergence, in extremely high concentrations.
NOTES ON TWO SPECIES OF ACETES OF THE FAMILY SERGESTIDAE (CRUSTACEA DECAPODA) FROM THE COASTS OF NORTH CHINA
1. The "peniciUated shrimps" of the Genus Acetes, are very abundant in the shallow waters along our coasts. Acetes chinensis fished from the Gulf of Pohai (the Gulf of Pei-chi-li) may amount to about
Two records of patchy occurrences of the oceanic shrimpSergestes similis Hansen off the east coast of Honshu, Japan
Two recent records of the occurrences of the pelagic shrimp,Sergestes similisHansen, are reported. They provide evidence of dense swarms ofS. similis in midwater off the east coast of Honshu, Japan,
Carotenoid deposition in pen-reared salmonids fed diets containing oil extracts of red crab (Pleuroncodes planipes)
TLDR
Analysis of the flesh of pen-reared coho salmon showed that there was no correlation between its carotenoid and fat contents, and the amount of carotanoid deposited in the flesh was related to the carotENoid content of the diet and to the weight of the fish.

Efficiency of Feed Conversion
Under optimum conditions, young healthy individuals of each livestock species may convert about one-third of the digestible protein in its feed into tissue protein in its body. Of this tissue

TLDR
Biomass estimates of these layers indicate concentrations of zoo-plankton that are greater and more extensive than previously reported in the open ocean.
