A closeup on the rhinophores of a Goniobranchus annulatus #nudibranch A rhinophore is one of a pair of chemosensory club-shaped, rod-shaped or ear-like structures which are the most prominent part of the external head anatomy in sea slugs. Rhinophores are scent or taste receptors, also known as chemosensory organs. The “scents” detected by rhinophores are chemicals dissolved in the sea water. The fine structure and hairs of the rhinophore provide a large surface area so that chemical detection is maximized. This allows the nudibranchs to stay close to their food source (for example species of sponges) and to find mates. They are primarily used for distance chemoreception and rheoreception.

Ocean surface clean-up. It took us over 2h to clean up everything. Not all of the plastic sinks it’ll float on the surface and is often pushed together in big patches by current and waves. Often Marinelife will try to eat it as they don’t know what it is and can’t try with their hands can they? Once eaten it can not be digested and will often remain in the guts. Marine Life often will starve to death due to their stomach is filled up with indigestible plastic as well as microplastic which will go into their organs and humans will eat fish again, it’s a circle isn’t it? In every fish we find dead we bring back and dissect it we always find some kind of plastics in its stomach. Scientist already found microplastic in human organs. Not only anymore in our stomach as it was discovered in the early year of 2008. We need to cut back on single plastic use.

#Nemo Amphiprion ocellaris, false percula clownfish. All anemonefish are protandrous hermaphrodites, meaning they first develop into males and may become females later in life. Anemonefish exhibit phenotypic plasticity when males, females, and juveniles inhabit the same anemone. In an anemonefish social group, the female is the dominant and largest member, followed by the dominant male, while other anemonefish remain non-reproductive.

Today is shark awareness day! Humans kill 100 Mil. Sharks per year, mostly for their fins. That’s per second around 3.6 sharks killed and 0,94 born. We take them out more than 3 times faster than they can reproduce. We need the sharks it’s a reef cleaner, it eats old and sick fish. 9 people get attacked by a shark per year 8 of them survive! It is increasing though, a reason for that is that 90% of Fish stock in the open Oceans is declined, sharks don’t find enough food anymore! But that’s just my personal opinion. Nevertheless, More people get killed by a falling coconut or a soda pop machine than by a shark. Many more people get killed by starvation 8 Mio. to be exact no one cares! Or in traffic accidents 3500 people killed per day! Just amazing what TV and Medias do to us! Our new Marine Life Conservation Project is to protect our Sharks.

Peacock mantis shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllaru). The mantis shrimp has one of the most elaborate visual systems ever discovered. Compared to the three types of colour-receptive cones that humans possess in their eyes, the eyes of a mantis shrimp carry 16 types of colour receptive cones. Furthermore, some of these shrimp can tune the sensitivity of their long-wavelength vision to adapt to their environment. The midband region of its eye is made up of six rows of specialised ommatidia—a cluster of photoreceptor cells 12 for colour sensitivity, 4 for colour filtering. The vision of the mantis shrimp can perceive both polarised light and multispectral images. Their eyes mounted on mobile stalks and capable of moving independently of each other are similarly variably coloured and are considered to be the most complex eyes in the animal kingdom.

The Durban dancing shrimp Rhynchocinetes durbanensis, also known as the camel shrimp and the hingebeak prawn. Up to 4 cm in length. The shrimp is found in hollows and crevices from 5 to 35 metres deep, where it forms groups consisting of dozens of individuals. One study determined that the ovigerous females carry from 267 to 1764 eggs, and the eggs take 9 days to hatch after spawning at a temperature of 29.2 °C if the temperature is colder it’ll take more days.

Often mixed up with the Leopard Shark due to its Pattern. It’s called Zebra shark because as a juvenile it does have the black and white stripes of a zebra. This Zebra #Shark is 2,5m in length and is nocturnal laying on sandy patches and the seafloor during daytime. That u see one swimming during daytime is pure luck!
