Mysids live on all continents and in all oceans.


Most mysids are filter feeders. They strain tiny bits of plant and animal materials from the water as they swim over the bottom. These species also use their pincherlike claws to capture small animals when they are available. Prey items include small crustaceans and mollusks.
