Oysters contaminants and parasites, and has caused hundreds of deaths in coastal coastal regions around the world.

“We know that salinity-regulated bacteria are part of the natural 여수출장마사지 여수안마ecosystem that provides food to marine birds,” said John R. Molloy, a bioarchaeologist at the Smithsonian Institution who led the study. “But we’ve not yet made it to the level that we think we should be.”

To prove this point, the scientists collected some of the world’s most common “elevator clamfish” — a freshwater fish native to South America that eat crustaceans and mollusks — from the seas of coastal Peru and northern Chile and dried their flesh. The results reveal that these organisms are a significant food source for sea life, the research team writes in it안산안마 안산출장샵s new study, which appears online in the journal Marine Pollution Bulletin.

The clamfish’s high fat content — some of it containing up to 15 percent oil — suggests that their digestion could not be as efficient as the fish’s flesh-loving liver.

The high levels of fat also mean that there are far more bacteria growing on the clamfish’s surfaces than in its guts, the researchers say, supporting the theory that the clamfish provides microbes with access to food that otherwise would be lost to evaporation and the se성남출장안마a.
