Amphipods are animals that belong to phylum Arthropoda and class Malacostraca that has no carapase (protective shield covering the back part of an animal) and has laterally compressed bodies. Basically, Amphipods are shrimp –like in form. Copepods are animals that also belong to phylum Arthropoda but to a different class Maxillopoda. They are usually 1 to 2 millimeters long
