Figure 8: Simplified diagram of the water current and particle movement through an ascidian when feeding. As water enters the inhalant siphon and travels through the branchial basket, a sticky mucus sheet lining the basket traps particles suspended within the water. These particles are then transported by cilia down through the esophagus to the stomach where digestion occurs. Waste products will then travel through the intestine, to the anus where it will be expelled through thee exhalant siphon along with the remaining water, which travels through the branchial basket.
