COPEPODS

Definition

Subclass of Crustacea. Mostly small (a few mm long) no compound eyes or carapace. Usually six pairs of swimming limbs on thorax, no appendages on abdomen. Some copedod species are known to be parasitic to cultivated fish, e.g., sea lice, while others are used as food for fish larvae.
