Life History and Behavior

Data about Ophelina
Marine larval development strategy
Additional detail planktotrophic
  • Planktotrophic
    Planktotrophic species generally have fairly long pelagic larval durations and feed while in the water column. Consequentially, they have the potential to disperse long distances.
