What has the Mega Marine Survey found? What exciting activities are ahead? And how can ordinary people participate?
Dr Tan of the Tropical Marine Science Institute gave us a brief update of what the Survey has achieved in the last year. We have conducted 51 surveys! 23 laboratory sessions! And just completed a mini-Expedition at Pulau Ubin. Together, we have collected more than 6,000 specimens and there's still a lot more work ahead of us to identify them!
Lamp shell, which is not a mollusc but belongs to a different group of animals!
mini-Expedition. From 'nut clams' to tiny porcelain crabs that infest sea pens, the hundreds of 'teapot' clams we sorted out of dredge and there was even one crab that stumped Prof Peter Ng, the world authority on crabs!
mini-Expedition and there sure is a lot of stuff living on the sea bottom. From giant sea stars to teeny tiny creatures.
