Copepods are tiny crustaceans that live in the ocean and nearly every freshwater habitat. Scientists say they form the largest animal biomass on earth.

Many copepods are planktonic, meaning they rely on the ocean current to move - much as FCMA relies on its Friends to keep the Aquarium moving along. Be a friend and donate today!
