In situ feeding of a schooling mysid, Anisomysis sp., on Davies Reef–Mecor #4
Mysids enclosed in situ and incubated with various radioisotopically labeled types of food had highest grazing or searching rates for relatively large animal prey (Artemia nauplii), generally lower rates for algal detritus and coral mucus, and ecologically trivial rates for single-celled phytoplankton and bacteria. These mysids are therefore most important as macrophages and carnivores in the organic budget of the reef.
