Parasites et maladies sont une source de mortalité pour les Euphausiacés de la baie de Fundy. Il n'y avait pas de macroparasites externes dans les populations de Meganyctiphanes norvegica, Thysanoessa longicaudata et Thysanoessa inermis, mais 2,8% de la dernière espèce montraient un développement irrégulier de la gonade ou de l'hépatopancreas. Cinq conditions pathologiques ou irrégulières ont été notées chez Thysanoessa inermis: 0,1% des spécimens examinés avaient un hépatopancréas fortement agrandi (pas de parasites notés), 0,5% contenaient des grégarines dans le céphalothorax, 0,05% étaient envahi par des microsparidions, une femelle montrait des oeufs au stade I en division cellulaire, une montrait une condition hermaphrodite et un spécimen de Thysanoessa longicaudata contenait un nématode immature et en mauvais état dans le céphalothorax. Les capacités de reproduction étaient certainement altérées chez les individus affectés.
