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

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

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

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