Caption: Copepods. Light micrograph of a group of copepods, subclass Copepoda, marine crustaceans. Copepods are tiny, shrimp-like planktonic animals that live in vast numbers in the surface of seas and lakes, where they feed on microscopic plants. They swim with hopping movements, beating their legs to climb up through the water before sinking slowly back down with feathery antennae extended like parachutes. They play a crucial role in the marine food chain: they are the primary converters of plant protein to animal protein and are the main source of food for fish such as herring and mackerel. Magnification x20 at 35mm size.
