Data from: Intoxicated copepods: ingesting toxic phytoplankton leads to risky behaviour

Rachel S. Lasley-Rasher, Kathryn Nagel, Aakanksha Angra & Jeannette Yen
Understanding interactions between harmful algal bloom (HAB) species and their grazers is essential for determining mechanisms of bloom proliferation and termination. We exposed the common calanoid copepod, Temora longicornis to the harmful algal bloom species Alexandrium fundyense and examined effects on copepod survival, ingestion, egg production and swimming behaviour. A. fundyense was readily ingested by T. longicornis and significantly altered copepod swimming behaviour without affecting copepod survival or fitness. A. fundyense caused T. longicornis to...
