Like Humans, Crayfish Talk a Tough Game -- Even When Outmatched

Arizona State University (ASU)

ASU Professor Michael Angiletta Angilletta and his co-authors have been studying self-deception in crayfish for about 10 years. They combined mathematical modeling with an experiment to show that crayfish meet the criteria for self-deception.

Clingfish biology inspires better suction cup

University of California San Diego

A team of engineers and marine biologists built a better suction cup inspired by the mechanism that allows the clingfish to adhere to both smooth and rough surfaces, such as rocks in the area where the tide comes and goes.

3-D Printed Coral Could Help Endangered Reefs

University of Delaware

Threats to coral reefs are everywhere—rising water temperatures, ocean acidification, coral bleaching, fishing and other human activities. But new research from the University of Delaware shows that 3-D printed coral can provide a structural starter kit for reef organisms and can become part of the landscape as fish and coral build their homes around the artificial coral.

Piranha fish swap old teeth for new simultaneously

University of Washington

With the help of new technologies, a team led by the University of Washington has confirmed that piranhas lose and regrow all the teeth on one side of their face multiple times throughout their lives. How they do it may help explain why the fish go to such efforts to replace their teeth.

The makeup of mariculture: FSU researchers examine global trends in seafood farming

Florida State University

When Florida families settle down to enjoy a seafood dinner they may not realize the main dish wasn’t freshly caught in the nearby Gulf of Mexico, but rather farmed off the coast of Panama. The process of farming seafood in the ocean, known as mariculture, is a growing trend yet little is known about the trajectories of its development.

Many cooks don't spoil the broth: Manifold symbionts prepare their host for any eventuality

University of Vienna

Deep-sea mussels, which rely on cooperative symbiotic bacteria for their food, harbor a surprisingly high diversity of these bacterial "cooks": Up to 16 different bacterial strains live together in the mussel's gills, each with its own abilities and strengths. Thanks to this diversity of symbiotic bacterial partners, the mussel is prepared for all eventualities. The mussel bundles up an all-round carefree package, a German-Austrian research team including Jillian Petersen from the University of Vienna and Rebecca Ansorge and Nicole Dubilier from the Max-Planck-Institute for Marine Microbiology now reports in Nature Microbiology.
