Fish monkfish

In the Atlantic ocean, the Black sea and off the coast of India dwells amazing and a bit scary fish monkfish .With it is associated a very curious phenomenon. For a long time researchers could not understand why all the water harvested from fish of this species are invariably females. As they multiplied.

Only after the beginning of the heavy deep-sea studies have found out that monkfish has developed a unique mechanism of reproduction. It turned out that the male and female fish monkfish differ in size a thousand times. The female is a large part of his life spent in the coastal zone and can grow up to two meters long, and the male also reaches only a few centimeters and lives at great depths, where is the justice in this world = ( . This was established when he was discovered living at depths of more than two hundred meters tiny fish acerated. Caught deep-sea dredges of acaracide were always males. Only after painstaking research revealed that acerated is (many readers probably already guessed it) a male sea devil, and not a separate species or a subspecies.

It considered the sponge in water through a microscope. And saw trickles of water, which went in through one hole and out through another. Still, for many years, scientists did not know what kind of animal. Thought it was a tiny single-celled creatures that live together in one big colony.

We now know that sponges are the dried skeletons of marine animals belonging to the class of “porous”. This is a pretty significant group of animals. Although sponges are one of the lowest forms in the animal Kingdom, their structure is quite complicated. Continue reading
