SURFING THE HEAT WAVES IN INDIA AND AUSTRALIA ...HOW TO SURVIVE AND REMAIN IN ACTIVE SURF ....IT'S EASY BE YOUNG BE WELTHY AND DON'T GO MAD GO...ENGLISH Mad Dogs & Englishmen

the highest recorded maximum of 49.6°C at Moomba in South Australia.
The extreme conditions have been associated with a delayed onset of the Australian monsoon, and slow moving weather systems over the continent.

EAT MORE SHARK PLEASE... Guillaume Sorrieu's bouillabaisse, from L'Épuisette, in Marseille, is the best of the best, but where does that leave the home cook with no access to fresh radioactive seafood from the.Pacific ...AND YOU WANT HOW MANY CURIES IN THE SAUCE OR IN THE SOUP C'EST LA MÊME BOUILLABAISSE WITH C-14 SHARKS ARE TOP PREDATORS THEY HAVE BIOACCUMULATION ISSUES AND RADIOACTIVE ONES TOO...Apex predators such as swordfish, sharks, osprey, ... Bioaccumulation and Biomagnification POPs and MeO-PBDEs were analyzed in various elasmobranch species from the southeastern US. • Lowest levels of POPs were found in Atlantic stingrays. • Highest levels of POPs were found in bull sharks. • Results suggest bioaccumulation and biomagnification with trophic position. • MeO-PBDEs were detected in all shark species, but not in Atlantic stingrays BUT NOT RADIOACTIVE C-14 IS MOSTLY C-12.....ALL YEAR AROUND

Organohalogenated compounds are widespread in the marine environment and can be a serious threat to organisms in all levels of aquatic food webs, including elasmobranch species. Information about the concentrations of POPs (persistent organic pollutants) and of MeO-PBDEs (methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers) in elasmobranchs is scarce and potential toxic effects are poorly understood. The aims of the present study were therefore to investigate the occurrence of multiple POP classes (PCBs, PBDEs, DDXs, HCB, CHLs) and of MeO-PBDEs in various elasmobranch species from different trophic levels in estuarine and marine waters of the southeastern United States. Overall, levels and patterns of PCBs, PBDEs, DDXs, HCB, CHLs and of MeO-PBDEs varied according to the species, maturity stage, gender and habitat type. The lowest levels of POPs were found in Atlantic stingrays and the highest levels were found in bull sharks. As both species are respectively near the bottom and at top of the trophic web, with juvenile bull sharks frequently feeding on Atlantic stingrays, these findings further suggest a bioaccumulation and biomagnification process with trophic position. MeO-PBDEs were not detected in Atlantic stingrays, but were found in all shark species. HCB was not found in Atlantic stingrays, bonnetheads or lemon sharks, but was detected in the majority of bull sharks examined. Comparison with previous studies suggests that Atlantic stingrays may be experiencing toxic effects of PCBs and DDXs on their immune system. However, the effect of these compounds on the health of shark species remains unclear.    dinsdag, 31 Maart 2015

SHARKS DON'T HAVE CANCER A BOOK FROM THE NINETIES OR SOME ....THEY DO THEY DO IT TAKES TIME AND EXTRAS In 2013 the First Great White Shark ever was discovered with a Cancerous Tumor, a species which Humans have been studying for ever and ever and never just all of a sudden pops up with a Cancer tumor two years after the Nuclear disaster in Japan.

But let us not forget the list of other extreme cases of environmental shock caused by the radiation exposure.
noticed a large tumor protruding from the mouth of a great white shark, as well as another mass on the head of a bronze whaler shark. The great white's tumor measured 1 foot (30 centimeters) long and 1 foot wide, according to a study describing the tumors published online in November in the Journal of Fish Diseases.

"This was a very unusual sight as we have never before seen a [great] white shark with tumors," said Rachel Robbins, a study co-author and shark biologist at the Fox Shark Research Foundation, near Adelaide, in southern Australia.

THE STRAIN-LIKE ORGANISMS ARE STRANGE AND THE LARGE MAJORITY OF THIS HAVE REMAINED IN SOFT BOTTOMS WITH VARYING DEGREES OF TISSUE FUSION (MANTLE AND PROTOLIMBS FUSION) AND IMPORTANT ADAPTATIONS FOR SUCKING BLOOD OR OTHER FLUIDS THAT ARE NAMED SIPHONS...THIS ORGANISMS LIVE IN SOFT AND IN HARD SUBSTRATES THEY ARE VERY PLASTIC THEY ADAPT EASELY THEY ARE THE RESULT OF A GREAT NUMBER OF DIFFERENT INVASIONS AND FOOD FIGHTS.....ANCHORAGE BY BYSSAL THREADS OR BY CEMENTATION TO THE SUBSTRATUM...REDUCTION OF LOSS OF THE FOOT OR OTHER LIMBS IS A NICE ADAPTATION IN A BLOODSUCKER THAT PREYS FOR AMBUSH LIKE GEORGES BUSH ABILITY TO DRILL INTO HARD SUBSTRATES ROCKS SHELLS CORAL AND WOOD IS A NATURAL EVOLUTION FOR MANY MANY GROUPS OF ORGANISMS... BURROWERS IN SOFT AND HARD BOTTOMS ARE GOOD SURVIVORS ... FOOD TRAPPED IN THE BOTTOM IN FINE PARTICLES IN THE DEEP SEA ...FORMATION OF THE GREAT FOOD GROOVES AND FUTURE OIL FIELDS ..ORGANISMS THAT FEED IN THAT BONANZA HAVE AN EXPLOSIVE EVOLUTION SOME SEVERAL MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO ...THE EVOLUTION OF FILTER FEEDERS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE GREEK OKEANOS LED TO THE EXPLOSION OF LAMELLIBRANCHS AND ISLAMIC STATE-LIKE ORGANISMS FOR THEY WERE NO LONGER CHAINED TO SCARCE FOOD SOURCES

THE MORE PRIMITIVE OF THIS NEW WAVE

OF FILTER FEEDERS 

ARE THE FILIBRANCHS 

THE MORE PRIMITIVE 

LAMELLIBRANCH CONDITION WITH

BETWEEN THE FOLDED GILL FILAMENTS 

IN THE SPECIALIZED CONDITION

THE FILAMENTS ARE FUSED TOGETHER

BY A VARIETY OF TISSUES 

AND TISSUE JUNCTIONS

EULAMELLIBRANCHS ARE STRAIN-LIKE 

ORGANISMS AND THE CHANNEL FOR

SCALLOPS DO NOT BURROW 

THEY ARE CAPABLE OF ESCAPING BY
