Caption

Large group of opossum shrimp, or mysids, underwater. These shrimp are named for their brood pouch (marsupium) in females, which performs an analogous role to the pouch in opossums, a marsupial mammal. A female receives a male's sperm into her pouch, where it fertilises the eggs. The eggs develop within the pouch until they hatch as miniature adults. They stay in the pouch for a few days until they are released. Females may produce a new brood every few days. Mysid shrimp are an important prey species for a variety of marine life. They themselves feed mainly on plankton. Species are found throughout the world's seas and oceans, in both shallow and deep water. Filmed in Wales, UK.
