A crustacean of the chiefly marine order Amphipoda.
- In addition to fish, Pterois volitans feed on invertebrates such as amphipods, isopods, and other crustaceans.
- For example, crickets infected with bacteria, Drosophila infested with mites, and amphipods harboring trematodes all increase reproductive activity.
- Isopods and amphipods spend low tide buried in wrack, where variation in temperature and humidity is strongly damped relative to the exposed intertidal surface.
