A recent paper by Zhang et al. (2021) explores the acute toxicity of microplastics on a filter-feeding planktivorous fish, Silver Carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix).
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.
Leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) are the largest species of sea turtle. Found around the world's oceans they travel distances up to 4,828 km, using their large pectoral flippers to swim as fast as 24kph. Diving to as deep as 1000m these turtles follow the diel movements of jellyfish - their preferred prey.
Mytilus mussels are keystone species in the Baltic Sea: they build reefs which provide more complex habitats for various species (macrofauna, macroalgae and meiofauna), filter water (linking the pelagic and benthic systems) and are a staple food source for numerous organisms (eider ducks, flounder, crabs, starfish and the larval stages feed herring larvae and other carnivorous zooplankton). They can also be extremely numerous – forming up to 90% of the animal biomass in some shallow waters.
