The very hungry sea anemone
(National Oceanography Centre, UK) The surprising culinary preferences of an abyssal sea anemone have been unveiled by a team of scientists from the National Oceanography Centre.New time-lapse photography of the abyssal sea floor shows that this type of anemone can eat animals up to six times its weight and moves around the ocean floor by burrowing. The lead author of this study, Jennifer Durden, a Ph.D. student at the NOC, explained that these heavy meals can take the anemone up to 80 hours to digest.

Monitoring seawater reveals ocean acidification risks to Alaskan shellfish hatchery
(NOAA Headquarters) New collaborative research between NOAA, University of Alaska and an Alaskan shellfish hatchery shows that ocean acidification may make it difficult for Alaskan coastal waters to support shellfish hatcheries by 2040 unless costly mitigation efforts are installed to modify seawater used in the hatcheries.

ERC Advanced Grant: University of Southern Denmark sets out to explore deep ocean trenches
(University of Southern Denmark) A team led by Professor Ronnie N. Glud from University of Southern Denmark has received an ERC Advanced Grant of 3,185,000 euros to carry out a series of ambitious explorations of the deepest parts of the oceans. Previous expeditions led by Professor Glud have revealed surprisingly high levels of biological activity at nearly 11 km deep. Now the aim is to investigate how life can exist at these depths and how its activity affects the biogeochemical functioning of the oceans and the Earth.

Ocean algae will cope well in varying climates, study shows
(University of Edinburgh) Tiny marine algae that play a critical role in supporting life on Earth may be better equipped to deal with future climate change than previously expected, research shows.
