The mysid shrimp Praunus flexuosus is common in littoral habitats in the Baltic Sea and other marine areas, but its bioenergetic characteristics have not been studied. We present the first model of its routine respiration rate as a function of size and a natural temperature range. The model explained 87% of the variance in respiration, indicating that it could be useful in a larger modeling framework. Specific respiration rates and temperature dependence were consistent with previous reports for this and other littoral mysids at low-to-moderate temperatures. Respiration at higher temperatures was lower, indicating that previous reports may have been biased by residual SDA (specific dynamic action) effects. Increased respiration due to SDA was detectable over a longer period than previously reported, ∼30 h.
