Between 29 January and 6 February 2013, more than 500 seabirds, mainly guillemots, were killed or rendered helpless by a mystery substance from a pollution event off the south coast of England.

#Arctic Death Spiral Bombshell: CryoSat-2 Confirms Sea Ice Volume Has Collapsed | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
The sharp drop in Arctic sea ice area has been matched by a harder-to-see, but equally sharp, drop in sea ice thickness. The combined result has been a collapse in total sea ice volume — to one fifth of its level in 1980.

Hammour off menu at some UAE restaurants: Concerns about overfishing of species leads some ... http://t.co/koWSnaj8 #WhatsUp #MEBusiness
Marian Locksley's insight:

A number of UAE-based hotels and restaurants have opted to take Hammour off the menu due to concerns about overfishing of the species, but many continue to offer the endangered fish.

 

Dubai Indian restaurant Ushna is among those that have stopped serving the local orange spotted grouper, in light of recent discussions highlighting over-farming of the slow-producing fish, which is often caught before it has had the opportunity to breed.

#Octopuses Rewrite Their RNA to Beat the Cold

#Octopuses Rewrite Their RNA to Beat the Cold | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it

This octopus from the Arctic tweaks its RNA to make nervous system proteins that work better in the cold. The Antarctic octopus edits its RNA at nine sites that change the amino acid sequence of the potassium channel, the researchers report online today in Science. One of these sites, known as I321V, was particularly important for adapting to the cold: The change more than doubles the potassium channel's closing speed.

Dr. Stefan Gruenwald's comment, March 24, 2012 12:53 PM
Yes, I was thinking the same thing. I just wonder that these modifications don't get written back into the DNA of germ cells and each generation has to "discover" favorable RNA edits again and again.

#SeaSlug Has Disposable Penis ~ exposed #nudi *

The peculiar sea slug discards its penis after sex, grows a new one, and has sex again the next day.

Via Amocean
Marian Locksley's insight:

Almost all of these creatures, which are also known as nudibranchs, are thought to be "simultaneous hermaphrodites". This means they have both male and female sexual organs and can use them both at the same time.


Sea slugs are not the only animals who abandon their penis.

They do have very very complicated biology”

Bernard PictonNational Museums Northern Ireland

Orb weaving spiders are known to lose their male organs after sex, as does a sea creature called the periwinkle and land slugs belonging to the genus Ariolimax.

 

However the researchers believe that Chromodoris reticulata is the first creature known that can re-grow its appendage - and its disposable penis gives it a sexual advantage.

A sea slug's unusual mating behavior -- it discards its penis after copulation, grows a new one, and has sex the next day -- is reported in the latest issue of Biology Letters.

#Scientists Discover World’s Most #Abundant #Virus in the #Ocean ~ A type of #MarineBacteria #SAR11


Via Kathy Dowsett
Marian Locksley's insight:

Researchers announced today the discovery of the most abundant virus in the world. Rather than attacking humans however, the virus, called a Pelagiphage, attacks the most abundant microorganism in our oceans, a type of marine bacteria called SAR11, with significant implications for how carbon moves between the atmosphere and our oceans.

 

The study was published in the scientific journal Nature today.

 

Dr. Steve Giovannoni, whose lab at Oregon State University made the discovery, said in a press release, "There's a war going on in our oceans, a huge war, and we never even saw it."

 

Until now.

 

"This is an important piece of the puzzle in how carbon is stored in the sea," he continued.
