Husbandry

Chevreux, 1906

Very special thanks for the first photo of the arctic amphipod Eusirus laticarpus to Dr. Jan Andries van Franeker, Wageningen Marine Research, Netherlands!
Eusirus laticarpus is common in the cold antarctic waters and is an important part of the marine food chain, like krill and copepods too, special for whales and small fishes.
Eusirus laticarpus possesses valuable unsaturated fatty acids such as Omega 3 and also Omega 6 fatty acid.
