ABSTRACT Observations of the escape responses of Euphausia superba and Euphausia crystallorophias under pack ice (O'Brien, 1987) and of Nyctiphanes australis in southeast Tasmania (unpublished observations) are discussed together with previously published data on the escape reactions of these and other euphausiids. Similarities in the form of the escape response for surface-swarming species of euphausiids are apparent. It is proposed that there are three levels of escape response whose manifestation is primarily dependant upon the aggregative state of the prey and the size and proximity of the predator. The adaptive significance of the three levels of response is discussed in relation to predator evasion.
