Near the surface, tunicates (just like sponges), filter water and retain nutrients they need in the process of this respiration. This predatory tunicate (Megalodicopia hians) has developed a unique strategy: it is both a filter filterer and a predator. Its large mouth closes rapidly on small shrimps or other crustaceans that stray there. They are found at depths of 200–1,000 meters and grow up to 20cm.
