10 curious facts about Octopuses

10 curious facts about Octopuses | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

The octopus is much more than eight legs and tiny suction cups. With 300 recognized species spread throughout our oceans, there are many facts about this amazing creature that may surprise curious divers. Check out our collection of the top 10 fascinating things you may not know about the octopus:

 

1. The octopus has three hearts – two move blood past the gills and the third moves blood to the organs. Did you know their blood is the colour blue?

2. Their hearts stop beating when they swim, which is why they tend to “crawl” more often than swim quickly.

3. Octopuses are ancient – with the oldest fossil dating 296 million years ago.

4. They can hide in plain sight, thanks to the ability to change their skin instantly to mimic the surrounding environment.

5. Studies show that octopuses are highly intelligent and learn easily through observation of other octopuses.

6. They have been observed using “tools” – shells, rocks and other objects are used to construct fortresses and may even be carried for protection.

7. When scared, octopuses release ink which dulls a predator’s sense of smell and blocks their sight, allowing for a safe getaway.

8. If an octopus gets caught by a predator, it can escape by losing its arm and can regrow it later on.

9. Octopuses can bite with beak-like jaws and have venomous saliva. The blue-ring octopus has venom so strong it can kill a human in mere minutes.

10. Female octopuses can lay up to 400,000 eggs. After they hatch, the mother dies quickly.

UNITED STATES: Hawaii to get massive floating fish farms | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

A US firm has started work on huge floating cages that will hold 1,000 tonnes of fish in the deep sea off Hawaii’s coast.

 

Hawaii Oceanic Technology Inc. (HOTI) has received permits to build 12 cages, which it calls “Oceanospheres“, in a 247-acre area off the coast of Hawaii, which it has leased out.

 

The floating fish farms will be 180 feet wide cages submerged at a depth of 20 metres. The farms will raise tuna fish from egg to harvest size in a self-contained system. The company hopes to harvest fish within 18 months.

 

“Our goal is to develop a new, environmentally responsible way to raise tuna in deep waters,” Bill Spencer, CEO of HOTI was quoted as saying in media reports.

 

HOTI hopes to cash in on ocean fish farming which is estimated to be a US$75 (€56.033) billion market by 2020, West Hawaii Today reported.

PHILIPPINES: Algae Master Plan for the Philippines

PHILIPPINES: Algae Master Plan for the Philippines | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

Work is underway to create a five-year plan to be used as a roadmap for developing commercial uses for Philippine strains of microalgae. Known as the Algae Research and Commercialization Master Plan, one of the plan’s primary pathways leads to development of microalgae as aquafeeds.

 

This year, the Philippine Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) released P10 million to start off the National Aquafeeds Research and Development Program. About 60 species of microalgae have already been screened for food and aquaculture In the Philippines.

 

The University of the Philippines (UP) Los Baños, and UP in the Visayas, are working with the Bohol Island State University to develop feed formulations using microalgae, seaweeds and seaweed by-products, and water hyacinth as possible protein sources. The feeds come in various forms: algal paste, nutrient concentrates, and as floating and sinking pellets. These will be field-tested on milkfish, shrimps, and tilapia.

 

Through the algae masterplan, the country is in a bid to develop at least five local strains of microalgae for the world market for algal products: Chlorella vulgaris, Isochrysis, Nannochloropsis spp., Tetraselmis spp., and Spirulina platensis.

 

Other than feed development, the algae masterplan will direct algal research towards germplasm collection, preservation and maintenance, processing, and value-adding for production of bioactive compounds, nutraceuticals and functional foods, nanomaterials, crop protectants and algal polysaccharides; and development of high-rate algal production systems including design and local fabrication of photobioreactors.

 

The Philippines Congressional Committee on Science, Technology and Engineering (COMSTE) has identified the masterplan as one of their six Science and Technology (S&T) Innovation Clusters. The S&T innovation cluster concept involves strategic alliances among academic institutions, research consortia, private and foreign companies, and government funding institutions to deliver technologies that would fuel fledging industries towards global competitiveness.

ΑΥΣΤΡΑΛΙΑ: Ανακαλύφθηκε τεράστια δηλητηριώδης μέδουσα χωρίς πλοκάμια

ΑΥΣΤΡΑΛΙΑ: Ανακαλύφθηκε τεράστια δηλητηριώδης μέδουσα χωρίς πλοκάμια | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

Μία γιγάντια και ιδιαίτερα δηλητηριώδης μέδουσα, η οποία ανακαλύφθηκε στις βορειοδυτικές ακτές της Αυστραλίας, έχει προβληματίσει και συνάμα καταπλήξει τους επιστήμονες, καθώς δε διαθέτει πλοκάμια.

 

Το νέο είδος ονομάζεται Keesingia gigas και αποτελεί ένα από τα δύο νέα είδη μεδουσών Irukandji που ανακάλυψε πρόσφατα η Λίζα-Ανν Γκέρσουιν, διευθυντής ινστιτούτου θαλασσίων συμβουλευτικών υπηρεσιών.

 

Οι μέδουσες Irukandji, η οποίες έλαβαν την ονομασία τους από ομώνυμη γειτονική φυλή Αβορίγινων, είναι ιδιαίτερα δηλητηριώδεις αλλά και εξαιρετικά μικρές σε μέγεθος, φτάνοντας μόλις το ένα κυβικό εκατοστό σε όγκο. Αντίθετα το Keesingia gigas έχει μέγεθος όσο ένα ανθρώπινο χέρι, διατηρώντας παράλληλα την ίδια τοξικότητα στο τσίμπημά του, που μπορεί να προκαλέσει πόνο, ναυτία, εμετούς και σε ακραίες περιπτώσεις εγκεφαλικό και ανακοπή καρδιάς.

 

Η νέα μέδουσα φωτογραφήθηκε για πρώτη φορά τη δεκαετία του ’80, αλλά πιάστηκε ζωντανή μόλις το 2013. Τόσο το ζωντανό δείγμα όσο και οι μέδουσες που απεικονίζονται στις φωτογραφίες δεν είχαν πλοκάμια, σύμφωνα με την Γκέρσουιν.

 

Οι μέδουσες πάντα έχουν πλοκάμια, καθώς είναι απαραίτητα για την εύρεση τροφής. Μία θεωρία είναι ότι οι συγκεκριμένες μέδουσες απέβαλαν τα πλοκάμια τους για λόγους άμυνας, όπως κάνουν για παράδειγμα είδη μεδουσών με φωσφορίζοντα πλοκάμια. Ωστόσο, δεν υπάρχει καμία ένδειξη ότι συνέβη κάτι τέτοιο στην προκειμένη περίπτωση.

 

«Η μόνη πιθανή εξήγηση που μπορώ να δώσω προς το παρόν είναι ότι οι Keesingia gigas κανονικά έχουν πλοκάμια και κατά κάποια σύμπτωση όλα τα δείγματα που συναντήσαμε τα είχαν χάσει ή αποβάλει για τον έναν ή άλλο λόγο», δήλωσε η Γκέρσουιν.

ΗΝΩΜΕΝΟ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΟ: Μέδουσα χρησιμοποιεί μέθοδο υπερυπολογιστών για αναζήτηση τροφής

ΗΝΩΜΕΝΟ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΟ: Μέδουσα χρησιμοποιεί μέθοδο υπερυπολογιστών για αναζήτηση τροφής | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

Ένα είδος μέδουσας χρησιμοποιεί μία στρατηγική με την ονομασία προσομοιωμένη ανόπτηση, κανονικά συσχετισμένη με τους γρηγορότερους υπερυπολογιστές του κόσμου, προκειμένου να αναζητήσει τροφή.

 

Για τους μαθηματικούς, η ταχεία προσομοιωμένη ανόπτηση αποτελεί έναν αλγόριθμο που εκτελεί ένας υπερυπολογιστής και παρέχει τη δυνατότητα εύρεσης βέλτιστων λύσεων σε πολύπλοκα προβλήματα μέσα σε ένα σχετικά σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα. Για τη μέδουσα Rhizostoma pulmo, η ταχεία προσομοιωμένη ανόπτηση αποτελεί μία εξαιρετικά εξελιγμένη στρατηγική αναζήτησης, ταξινομημένη σε μία σειρά προβλέψιμων κινήσεων που φέρνουν τη μέδουσα ολοένα πιο κοντά σε μεγάλες ποσότητες πλαγκτόν, την προτιμώμενη λεία της.

 

«Αυτή η ιεραρχικά ταξινομημένη μέθοδος είναι άκρως αποτελεσματική κατά τη διαδικασία της αναζήτησης, καθώς όταν μία περιοχή έχει εξερευνηθεί εντατικά, τότε ο ερευνητής εγκαθίσταται  στην επόμενη και ξεκινά μία νέα περίοδο εντατικής αναζήτησης», δήλωσε ο Άντυ Ρέινολντς, επικεφαλής της μελέτης για το Ερευνητικό Ινστιτούτο Rothamsted στο Ηνωμένο Βασίλειο.

 

Άλλες, λιγότερο εξεζητημένες στρατηγικές έχουν παρατηρηθεί στο παρελθόν στη φύση, όμως ποτέ μία τόσο περίπλοκη, σύμφωνα με τον Ρέινολντς. Καρχαρίες, πιγκουίνοι, μέλισσες, μυρμήγκια, χελώνες, ακόμα και πρωτόγονοι άνθρωποι έχουν χρησιμοποιήσει τις λιγότερο εξελιγμένες τεχνικές, αλλά μόνο η συγκεκριμένη μέδουσα, η οποία απαντάται στον Ατλαντικό και τη Μεσόγειο, ξεχωρίζει για το επίπεδο και την αποτελεσματικότητα της στρατηγικής της.

 

Ο λόγος που δε χρησιμοποιούν περισσότεροι θαλάσσιοι οργανισμοί αυτή τη μέθοδο έχει να κάνει κυρίως με τη δίαιτά τους. Η μέδουσα Rhizostoma pulmo έχει ανάγκη να ψάχνει τη μεγαλύτερη συγκέντρωση λείας για να ικανοποιήσει την όρεξή της, ενώ οργανισμοί όπως οι καρχαρίες και οι πιγκουίνοι ικανοποιούνται απλά με το περιστασιακό ψάρι που θα συναντήσουν πρώτο.

 

Αυτό το υψηλό επίπεδο διάκρισης είναι ο λόγος που προσελκύει μαθηματικούς και μηχανικούς στην ταχεία προσομοιωμένη ανόπτηση για υπερυπολογιστές, εξηγεί ο Ρέινολντς. Με βάση μαθηματικά και υπολογιστικά μοντέλα, οι ερευνητές διαπίστωσαν ότι, όπως οι μέδουσες, οι μαθηματικοί έχουν την τάση να εφαρμόζουν αυτή τη στρατηγική μόνο όταν ψάχνουν για την καλύτερη δυνατή λύση σε ένα πρόβλημα, και όχι μια ποικιλία πιθανών λύσεων.

UNITED KINGDOM: Medusa method uses supercomputers foraging

A species of jellyfish uses a strategy called simulated annealing, normally associated with the fastest supercomputers in the world, to seek food.
 
For mathematicians, the fast simulated annealing is an algorithm that performs a supercomputer and enables finding optimal solutions to complex problems in a relatively short time. For jellyfish Rhizostoma pulmo, fast simulated annealing is an extremely sophisticated search strategy, broken into a series of predictable movements that bring the jellyfish ever closer to large amounts of plankton, the preferred prey.
 
"This method is hierarchically classified as highly effective during the search process, as when an area has been explored extensively, then the researcher settles in next and starts a new period of intensive search," said Andy Reynolds, lead researcher for the Institute Rothamsted in the United Kingdom.
 
Other, less sophisticated strategies have been observed previously in nature, but never one so complex, according to Reynolds. Sharks, penguins, bees, ants, turtles, even primitive people have used less sophisticated techniques, but only that jellyfish that is found in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, stands out for the level and effectiveness of the strategy.
 
The reason is that most marine organisms use this method has mainly to do with their diet. The jellyfish Rhizostoma pulmo need to look the most concentrated prey to satisfy his appetite, while organizations such as sharks and penguins just met with the occasional fish will encounter first.
 
This high level of discrimination is the reason that attracts mathematicians and engineers in the fast simulated annealing for supercomputers, says Reynolds. Based on mathematics and computer models, the researchers found that, like jellyfish, mathematicians tend to apply this strategy only when looking for the best solution to a problem, not a variety of possible solutions.
