Figure C

A representative sample of the amphipod, Themisto gaudichaudi. These predatory amphipods consume copepods when young (1-3mm) and copepods and larval fish when greater than 6mm long. Small juveniles are very abundant (up to 130,000/1000m³) in the upper water column; larger individuals are common in both the upper water column and at mid-depth.
