We made this #Android phone app to help people learn about essential #zooplankton species in the #Arctic, especially those that live in #Svalbard. There are 2 tabs - a photo Gallery (with ecological info about each species), and an Identify tab with Qs on body appearance to separate one species from another. Enjoy, and please feel free to leave feedback or review :)

Yet another video (by Richard Kirby) shows considerable amounts of algae in chaetognath guts. Just as I have for other chaeto genera, Richard has witnessed Parasagitta feeding on algae. And this is the genus that I would say probably tends more towards carnivory than others. I would say that the evidence for non-carnivory in chaetognaths is pretty overwhelming. So please, let's focus on that in future studies! #plankton #marine #science #feeding

Nice section about #chaetognath  discovery in Feb QuebecOcean newsletter. At least some #Arctic  species cannot be considered strict carnivores.
See Page 2.

If anyone is publishing new #articles  on #chaetognaths  ( #zooplankton ), please feel free to post the link here!
Cheers, Jordan

Chaetognath feeding on marine snow
A cool video of #chaetognath feeding we made from this year's #Amundsen cruise in the #Arctic. Check it out J
