  • sexual reproduction in last copepodite stage; 11 moults: 5 naupliar stages, 6 copepodite stages (ref: Vijv1980)
  • cyclopoid: adult is carnivore, younger copepodites are omnivore, nauplii are herbivore (ref: Vijv1980)


  • Acceleration starts at birth and continues till puberty, beyond metam; growth ceases at puberty
  • Data for females of subspecies C.v.vicinus
