A sponge might not look like much, but these simple animals with no brain or ability to move have lived on Earth for hundreds of millions of years. They can hunt prey and spawn, and Jonathan demonstrates how in this fascinating segment about the biology of sponges! ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe!

Cleaning sponges are synthetic these days, but they used to come from the ocean. Back in the days before we had synthetic sponges for housework, cleaning sponges did come from the ocean. They were harvested by hard-hat divers walking along the ocean floor in heavy weighted boots with a rake-like tool to pluck the sponges off the bottom. It was a dangerous and difficult job. Bagfuls of sponges were lifted to the boat above. Immediately, the crew set to work cleaning the sponges. Then they were hung to air dry. After days or weeks at sea, when the boat was full of sponges, they were taken to shore, where they were auctioned to the highest bidder. Finally they were trimmed, sorted and sold to the public. Natural sponges are still harvested in nearly the same way today, but the synthetic sponge has spared the lives of countless ocean sponges! While an ocean sponge looks something like a weird plant, it's actually an animal. In fact, sponges are among the simplest multi-cellular animals on Earth. They live on the bottom of the ocean, attached to a surface and never moving because they can't walk or swim. Some are quite colorful, while others are drab. They also come in all shapes and sizes. There are tube sponges, vase sponges, barrel sponges, rope sponges, encrusting sponges and many other types. Sponges live from the frigid waters of the arctic and Antarctic, to the tropics. On many coral reefs, sponges dominate the sea floor and the drop off. One of the most common sponges on coral reefs is the barrel sponge. Barrel sponges grow to epic proportions, getting larger than a person! Although sponges can't walk or swim, they can feed. They do it by filtering tiny plankton from the water. A sponge is covered with small pores, called ostia, which lead to a system of internal canals and eventually out to one or more larger holes, called oscula. Within the canals of the sponge, chambers are lined with specialized cells called choanocytes, or collar cells. The collar cells have a sticky, funnel shaped collar and a hairlike whip, called a flagellum. The collar cells serve two purposes. First, they beat their flagella back and forth like fans to move water through the sponge. The water brings in nutrients and oxygen, while it carries out waste and carbon dioxide. Second, the sticky collars of the collar cells pick up tiny bits of planktonic food brought in with the water. Sponges are very effective filter feeders, since they are able to capture and eat particles as small as bacteria as well as much larger particles. They might not look like they are doing much, but a simple demonstration shows how effectively sponges can pump water. On a reef in the Caribbean, I make a dive with a syringe filled with a non-toxic dye called fluorescein. By squirting it around the base of some sponges, we can observe how the water is moving by watching what the dye does. Within only seconds, the dye is pumped through the sponges along with the water. As you can see, a sponge is a pretty good water pump, and also a good strainer. Any plankton that goes in with the water, won't come back out through the osculum. Tube sponges are even more spectacular to observe. They pump the dye so furiously that they look like a collection of miniature smoke stacks! Since sponges can't get together to reproduce, they spawn in a way similar to coral. The sperm is released into the water column by the male sponge and finds its way to the female sponges, where fertilization occurs internally. Eventually, the planktonic larvae are released from the female sponge and float around in the water column as plankton for only a few days. They then settle down and start growing. Sponges don't have many predators. There is not much nutritional value in a sponge and they're hard to digest. Hence, very few animals can eat sponges. But something was clearly eating this sponge! A sea turtle is the culprit. Sea turtles are one of the principal predators of sponges, along with a few species of fish and some invertebrates like nudibranchs.

A team of researchers led by scientists from the American Museum of Natural History has released the first report of widespread biofluorescence in the tree of life of fishes, identifying more than 180 species that glow in a wide range of colors and patterns. The research shows that biofluorescence—a phenomenon by which organisms absorb light, transform it, and eject it as a different color—is common and variable among marine fish species, indicating its potential use in communication and mating. The report opens the door for the discovery of new fluorescent proteins that could be used in biomedical research. While conducting their research, the team embarked on high-tech expeditions to tropical waters. The most recent expedition was The Explore21 Solomon Islands Expedition, the first trip under a new Museum initiative that supports exploratory fieldwork that is multidisciplinary and heavily integrated with emerging technologies. From the research vessel Alucia the scientists conducted technical scuba dives and descended in a three-person submersible to examine deep coral reef biofluorescence down to 1,000 meters. They also submitted the scientific paper while aboard. #biofluorescence #fluorescent #fish #Explore21 #oceans #scientitst #research #submersible #coralreefs To learn more about this study, visit amnh.org.

Traveling on throughout a number of the South Pacific's most spectacular reefs, the filmmakers also visit some reefs on the verge of extinction, making the sobering point that an entire reef's death occurs very quickly, while its creation takes thousands of years. Coral Reef Adventure marks the third oceanic, ecologically-themed film from MacGillivray, following Dolphins. Also featured in the film are famed sea explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of the pioneering oceanographer Jacques Cousteau) and noted ichthyologist Richard Pyle. Subscribe for more videos :-)

Scientists at MIT and the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) in Israel have found that corals, long believed to be passive organisms relying entirely on ocean currents to deliver nutrients, are actually quite active, engineering their environment producing strong swirls of water that draw nutrients toward the coral, while driving potentially toxic waste products away.

A curious octopus got in the way of a science experiment on a coral reef in Curacao. While the divers were away, the octopus opened the camera housing and stole the latch. Watch what happens! Filmed by two scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego.

Alor is a place of incredible surprises! We offer you no guaranties, but Mola Mola (Sunfish), Thresher shark, Hammerhead shark, whale, Marlin have been spotted many times. Napoleons, giant Trevally, reef shark, turtles, Barracudas, Eagle rays, giant Grouper, huge dogtooth Tuna and more are encountered on a regular basis. And that's not all... The preserved reefs have a lot more to offer -- from unblemished coral slopes and walls to scenic rock formation, Alor will enchant everyone. The growth is exuberant, with such an astonishing variety of soft and hard coral that you will »almost forget to breathe«. Macro lovers will not be left out, since critter diving is a highlight in Alor. The colourful slopes around Pura Island are the home of the endearing mandarin fish, but they are also the home of frog fish, Blue Ribbon Eel, leaf fish, Harlequin ghost pipe fish, pygmy sea horse, etc... In south Pantar the water is generally colder, the reef is mainly covered with soft coral, fish life is amazing and an unbelievable variety of nudibranchs can be found. Further north, the walls around Ternate offer beautiful underwater scenery, including caves and multiple overhangs; divers are often gently drifting, surrounded by schools of fusilier, sergeant and tuna. Filmed by Andres Gluzgold.
Most corals were once thought to live in tropical water, close enough to the surface to receive sunlight. But with the help of submersibles and remotely operated vehicles, scientists have discovered vast forests of corals living 200 to 10,000 feet deep in dark, cold waters. Deep-sea corals can live for hundreds to thousands of years, feeding directly on microscopic animals. They've been found throughout the ocean on the rocky sea floor, in canyons, and on continental slopes. Like their shallow-water relatives, deep-sea corals provide habitats for a huge variety of organisms. In fact, scientists discover new species on each mission to the deep. These deep-water ecosystems are also important for commercial fish stocks, such as crabs and halibut off the coast of Alaska, and monkfish off the coast of New England. Yet for all their value, researchers believe these ecosystems are at risk. In certain areas the fishing industry uses bottom trawls to catch fish in deep-water habitats. As the nets are pulled along the ocean floor, they capture everything in their path, including corals they may accidentally encounter. Excess carbon dioxide from human activity on land is continually absorbed into the ocean increasing its acidity. This process, known as "ocean acidification," weakens coral skeletons and slows their growth. Most deep-water coral are still unexplored and even undiscovered. We will need to identify, map, and study these beautiful yet fragile corals if we hope to protect them and the many species they support.

Here are 11 facts about starfish or sea stars as they are now called to help gain a better understanding about them. All images used courtesy of wikipedia All videos used under creative commons license. Starfish https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ll74xmyIlk Pink Starfish Rescue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNj_Ktf_sEI Synopsis 11. The Sea Star is the alternative name for a starfish as it is not a fish but an echinoderm and it is related to sand dollars or sea urchins. 10. Around the oceans of the world there are around 2000 species of sea star living in all kinds of climates, from warm to cold waters. 9. The five armed species of sea star are the most common, but there are species that have many more arms. In fact, there are some that have up to 40 arms. 8. Sea stars have calcified and bony skin which gives them protection from predators. Different species have different colourings including many species that have striking colours so as to warn off predators. 7. They are strictly saltwater creatures and do not survive in freshwater. 6. Sea stars have the ability to regenerate their limbs and in some cases can regenerate their entire bodies. They can do this as they have most if not all of their vital organs in their arms. However, this does not happen quickly and it will take about a year for a limb to grow back. 5. Some species of sea stars need to have their main body in tact in order to regenerate their arms. 4. However their are some species that need just some of their severed limbs to be intact in order to grow a whole new body. 3. The majority of sea stars have the amazing ability to eat their prey outside of their bodies. They use small suction cupped tubed feet to open up the oysters and clams that they eat and their stomach then emerges from their mouths and their arms prise open the shell just enough and their stomach then enters it and digests it. Then the stomach then returns to the body. So basically they eat inside out, and this allows them to eat larger prey than they would normally be able to fit into their mouths. 2. Sea stars do not have blood in their bodies. Instead, they have a water vascular system where they pump sea water through its sift plate or majoporite into their tube feet. Their tube feet are full of sea water and give strength to them. They then use their tube feet to move and to hold their prey. 1. They have an anae spot and the end of each of their arms which is a very simple eye that looks like a red spot. The eye can sense dark and light but not a lot of detail.

How to bild a reef tank part 14. An updated vido from 10 mouths ago. I no longer use sun sun power heads. as the flow dropped to much over time. I now use tunze nanostorm. There are many ways to set up a reef tank, but I believe hanging a skimmer on the back to be the easiest. 6 T5 tubes is alot. The 5ft blue+ is on for 10 hours. The 5ft 15k is on for 4 hours. The 4ft tubes are on for 6 hours. S.P.S, corals like the light along with frogspawn and hammerhead. Acans, maze coral, and open brains need to be shaded.
