Herbivorous filter-feeder, feeding on small algae. But can switch to carnivorous mode, especially during Phaeocystis bloom (Ref. 113565). Members of the subclass Copepoda are gonochoric and sexually dimorphic. During copulation, male glues spermatophores to the female's venter. Life cycle: Eggs undergo six naupliar and five larval stages before becoming an adult (Ref. 833).
