Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 80410. Demersal (Ref. 105264). Burrows in near-shore level-bottom substrates (Ref. 92) in sheltered embayment or estuaries (Ref. 3099). Occurs in muddy bottoms of bays and inlets (Ref. 105263). Feeds mainly on crustaceans, mollusks, polychaetes, and fish; occasionally on plant materials (Ref. 105093). Some members of the order Stomatopoda pair for life and some come together only to mate. Males produce sperm ducts rather than spermatophores; females can brood a maximum of 50,000 eggs. Life cycle: Eggs hatch to a planktonic zoea which lasts for 3 months (Ref. 833).
