Brief Summary

Read full entry


Callianassa shrimps are burrowing, deposit-feeding crustaceans that live in complex burrow systems. These burrows have numerous galleries and chambers and are connected to the surface by a tube. The burrows are found down to a depth of about 50 cm in marine soft sediments (Witbaard & Duineveld, 1989).

The parasitic isopod lone thoracica can sometimes be found in the branchial chamber beneath the carapace of C. subterranea (Rowden & Jones, 1994).
