Distribution and habitat. Clistosaccus paguri occurs in both the northern Atlantic Ocean and the northern Pacific Ocean. In the Atlantic its range extends from the White Sea to Nova Scotia, and in the Pacific, its range extends from Alaska and the Bering Sea to Kodiak Island, the Sea of Japan and the Sea of : Hexanauplia. The copepod is a very important part of the zooplankton community, because it forms the vast bulk of the base of the oceanic food chain for so many other species. Krill are the principal food source for the filter-feeding (baleen) whales and, along with the copepod, provide food for countless fish, birds, and seals.

Compared to the stereotyped life cycle found in the Kentrogonida, species of the Akentrogonida have a diversity of reproductive systems and advanced modes of metamorphosis, and this is reflected in specializations of their Cited by: 8. Body structure of a typical crustacean – krill. The body of a crustacean is composed of segments, which are grouped into three regions: the cephalon or head, the pereon or thorax, and the pleon or abdomen. The head and thorax may be fused together to form a cephalothorax, which may be covered by a single large : Pancrustacea. tures in other mandibulates, therefore, have been interpreted as re­ tentions of, or reversions to, the ancestral structure. Such interpre­ tations, however, are in no case necessary, and are not supported by specific evidence; the exopodite branch of the limb is a crustacean specialty. Besides the exopodite, there may be an epipodite borne.
