Bionic robo-fish able to remove microplastics from seas revealed by scientists – video
Scientists have designed a tiny robot fish that is programmed to remove microplastics from seas and oceans by swimming around and adsorbing them. Microplastics are the billions of tiny plastic particles which fragment from bigger plastic things used every day. They are one of the 21st century ’s biggest environmental problems because once they are dispersed into the environment they are very hard to get rid of, harming the environment and animal and human health.Scientists unveil bionic robo-fish to remove microplastics from seasContinue reading...

Salmon fishing. Credit: iStockBy Marla R. Emery, Jean-Marc Fromentin and John DonaldsonBONN, Germany, Jun 22 2022 (IPS) You probably use wild species far more often than you realise. For many people, especially in more developed economies, the use of wild species sounds like something quite removed from their everyday lives – something perhaps more relevant to other people, in other countries. It is a fact, however, that the use of wild species is a vital part of almost every human community. If you eat fish, they are most likely wild species. When you take cough medication, it’s likely to be derived, in part, from wi...

In Cambodia, researchers document the world's largest freshwater fish
Thanks to local fishers, a team of scientists on an expedition in Cambodia to tag Mekong River fish has discovered the largest freshwater fish ever documented--a 300-kilogram giant stingray that stretches nearly 4 meters from nose to tail. "It's almost inconceivable that a fish this large still occurs in a river as heavily fished and developed as the Mekong," says Zeb Hogan, a fish biologist at the University of Nevada, Reno. The team of scientists, part of an international collaboration called Wonders of the Mekong, tagged and released the record-breaking stingray ( Urogymnus polylepis ) thanks to ha...
