Mysids: Mysida - Conservation Status

threatened waters

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) considers two species of mysids, both of which live in sea caves, to be Critically Endangered: Bermudamysis speluncola and Platyops sterreri. This means these mysids are facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. Mysids are threatened by pollution of coastal waters, dredging of canals, groundwater drainage, and continual use of pesticides. Underground waters are threatened by tourism, agriculture, and urban development.
