Die Gesamtlipide im Hepatopankreas des abyssalen Isopoden Bathynomus giganteus schwanken zwischen einem Maximum von 88,20% des Trockengewichts dieses Organs und einem Minimum von 22,70% mit einem Durchschnittswert für 10 Tiere von 51,18%. Die Abwesenheit von nachweisbaren Kohlehydraten im Hepatopankreas und die große Menge der in diesem Organ vorhandenen Lipide legt die Vermutung nahe, daß Lipide das dominierende Substrat für den Stoffwechsel darstellen. Die niedrige Umgebungstemperatur, bei der diese Tiere leben, würde in der Tat einen vorzugsweise auf Lipiden basierenden Stoffwechsel eindeutig begünstigen.
