When benthic ostracods walk, they open the carapace valves, push out the walking legs and antennae, and amble across the substrate with a rocking motion. Swimming in pelagic species involves pushing the terminal section of the antennae out the antennal notches in the carapace and moving the limbs in a rowing motion. Shallow-water ostracods seem to spend most of the day in motion, probably foraging for food particles. The few observations done at night indicate that they usually do not move about at night.
