  • Discovery without Destruction: a minimally invasive approach to new species

    A new study by Ziegler and Sargony (2021) has demonstrated how non-invasive methods can be used to record and catalogue new species of megafauna. Traditional methods including collecting specimens to handle physically which, aside from killing the specimen, can also damage the structures of the organism - impairing proper scientific understanding. While non-destructive imaging techniques have proven effective in describing novel species of small organisms this is the first time it has be utilised for a deep-sea megafauna, the cirrate octopus - Grimpoteuthis imperator.

  • Study shows acute toxicity of microplastics in filter feeding fish

    A recent paper by Zhang et al. (2021) explores the acute toxicity of microplastics on a filter-feeding planktivorous fish, Silver Carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix).

  • Food for thought: can climate change affect wild appetites?

    In a recent forum by Youngentob et al. (2021) pose this fascinating question, given that endotherms commonly reduce their voluntary food intake in warm temperatures - could reduced food intake be an overlooked driver of climate change casualties?

  • Some like it hot, but not salmon

    Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) are an important species of fish both for their ecological value and commercial value. These anadromous fish are spawned in rivers, travel to the sea to grow and mature before returning to the stream or river they were born in to spawn the next generation. As such the ability to swim against strong currents and up natural barriers is important, which is why a recent study published in the Canadian Journal of Zoology is concerning.
