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.
Many planktonic larval invertebrates have spiny protrusions, a recent study shows that these spines work with limb movements to help nauplii swim efficiently.
A recent study in the journal of Marine Biology has tested a different method of investigating social behaviour in octopuses. Traditionally octopuses have been seen as asocial creatures that ignore others of their species (conspecifics) but recent discoveries of aggregations or groups of wild octopuses such as: algae octopuses (Abdopus aculeatus), Graneledone octopuses, Muusoctopus octopuses, Caribbean Reef Octopuses (Octopus briareus), Atlantic pygmy octopuses (Octopus joubini), Octopus laqueus, Common Sydney octopuses (Octopus tetricus) and Vulcanoctopus hydrothermalis.
It’s tough being an acorn barnacle - you want a nice turbid environment with plenty of oxygen and food but getting there as a larvae less than 6mm long is a heck of a challenge. That’s why acorn barnacle cyprids are astonishing swimmers.
