This is a community to share and promote marine biology research and education.
Welcome to the Marine Biology community!
For the official subreddit post about the general questions about becoming a marine biologist, internship experiences, and other resources, click here to see the post.
The objective is to create a place where every single person who cares about the sea (marine biologist or not), can share news, papers, images, opinions, ideas, questions, and everything related to this topic.
I know that being a student, nowadays, isn't a easy task, so we will try to post about internship programs, congress, and whatever possible to help us in our academic life.
For an "Other reddits you might like" section:
My best wishes to you all, and hope you find what you are looking for here.
This is just something I randomly thought of and am just curious about. I looked it up and the different answers I got said that it has a mortality rate of as low at 13% and as high as 60%. Like say I eat a puffer fish and get poisoned by it, how likely am I to die in terms of percentage?
I was stung by a jellyfish today while snorkeling off the coast of the Surin Islands in Thailand. It had a small pink bell (maybe a cm in diameter) and long white/transparent tentacles that wrapped around my leg. There were a lot of them in the reef, and I heard from a local that the winds brought them in, because it was unusual to see them here. The sting hurt like hell for an hour or so, and left welts up and down my leg, but I don’t think it’s dangerous. I’ve looked in all my guide books and searched up descriptions of the jelly, but can’t find it anywhere! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Found in a rock pool on the east coast of Tasmania. About 10 cm in size
Any ideas? My mom said she found lots of these on a beach in Pensacola. Said they were hollow tubes of crusted sand and bits of shell.
Hey guys, for my english class this semester I get to choose the topic i write about for the full term. I wanted to do something along the lines of how mainstream media kinda ruins the view of sharks, so I wanted to hear any opinions about this subject and maybe even examples that you know of.
