Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This is an epipelagic species (Ref. 83943). Chaetognaths are active carnivores, feeding mostly on copepods, crustacean larvae and other chaetognaths, and occasionally on forams and fish larvae (Ref. 81541). Members of the phylum Chaetognatha are hermaphroditic. Mating behavior: A preliminary visual signaling behavior for species recognition is observed to prevent predation. Life cycle: Eggs directly develop into miniature adults (hatchlings) (Ref. 833).
