The Atlantic Horseshoe Crab (Limulus polyphemus) has blue blood!

Their blood is blue because of hemocyanin, and it contains powerful antimicrobial defenses that are studied and used in modern medicine today to prevent infections.

Milne-Edwards' 1873 monograph explored the species — and included intricate illustrations of its circulatory system. MBLWHOI Library explores the book...and its connection to modern research...on our blog ➡️ https://s.si.edu/2zeZDcQ

Illustration in this post from Milne-Edwards' "Recherches sur l’anatomie des Limules" (1873), showing the venous return half of the horseshoe crab's circulatory system.

Our friends USFWS Fisheries recently received a recapture report from a #stripedbass caught via hook and line off the southwest coast of Block Island on 7/3/19. The #striper was originally tagged on 10/13/94 in the Nantucket Sound and aged in 1989 year class! That makes it the oldest and longest time at large for any recaptured fish that FWS have age data on. It was at large for almost 25 years, and (assuming accurate aging) was 30 years old.

The "Warm Water Saves Manatees" decal shows several manatees gathering in a spring. Florida manatees require warm-water refuges to survive the winter months. Manatees cannot endure water temperatures below 68 degrees, so warm waters are critical for their survival.
