Red calanus plankton, water, carrageenan.

Contains copepods, copepodites and copepod nauplii from the Calanus species, a much larger copepod (compared to our Cyclops copepods) inhabiting cold marine waters. Calanus are an important member of the zooplankton community and as such form a prey species for a wide variety of marine organisms, from fish larvae to plankton sieving whales. Due to their grazing on marine phytoplankton Calanus copepods contain very high levels of the (for fish) important polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA & DHA as well as various carotenoids (natural pigments). Calanus form an excellent food source for feeding marine fish fry, smaller marine fish and marine invertebrates. They might be too big though for feeding some corals.
