Leeches, Lice and Lampreys: A Natural History of Skin and Gill Parasites of Fishes

Many alternative forms of animals have followed a parasitic way of life at the pores and skin and gills of marine and freshwater fishes, together with protozoans, flatworms, leeches, a variety of crustaceans or even a few vertebrates (lampreys). there's a parasitic barnacle, defined first within the nineteenth century through Charles Darwin, fish lice that vary intercourse and bivalve molluscs parasitic merely while younger.

The Underwater Museum: The Submerged Sculptures of Jason deCaires Taylor

A exceptional combination of artwork, nature, and conservation, The Underwater Museum re-creates an awe-inspiring dive into the striking under-ocean sculpture parks of artist Jason deCaires Taylor. Taylor casts his life-size statues from a distinct form of cement that allows reef development, and sinks them to the sea flooring.

Billion-Dollar Fish: The Untold Story of Alaska Pollock

Alaska pollock is far and wide. If you’re consuming fish yet you don’t be aware of what style it truly is, it’s most likely pollock. Prized for its popular fish style, pollock masquerades as crab meat in california rolls and seafood salads, and it feeds thousands as fish sticks at school cafeterias and Filet-O-Fish sandwiches at McDonald’s.

Reports of damage to reefs generally include millepores with the stony corals. In Barbados, where eutrophication was caused by the combined action of nutrient enrichment, sedimentation and groundwater discharge, percentage cover of both millepores and Scleractinians was lower on highly aVected reefs than on less eutrophic reefs (Tomascik and Sander, 1987). 32 JOHN B. LEWIS Sedimentation from bottom dredging and coastal runoV is one of the greatest potential causes of coral reef degradation as a result of smothering of reef organisms and reduction of available light for photosynthesis (Rogers, 1990).

Millepore colonies are generally less abundant on reefs and there are no large long-lived colonies such as the great massive hermatypic corals that often dominate reefs. Millepores diVer from scleractinians in possessing two distinct types of polyps: feeding zooids and defensive zooids with powerful nematocysts. Stenotele nematocysts are limited to the class Hydrozoa and macrobasic mastigophores are unique to the millepores. Feeding strategies depend upon the eVectiveness of these toxic nematocysts in prey capture, for apparently mucus suspension feeding, common in scleractinian corals, does not occur in millepores.
