Humans Strike Back, Create Peanut Butter and Jellyfish

Via National Geographic, news of staff at a Dallas aquarium who “wanted to see what would happen if they fed their young moon jellies a slurry of seawater and peanut butter.”

“Peanuts in general have quite a bit of protein,” said Barrett Christie, aquarium supervisor. “[And] we have read quite a number of studies where peanut meal has been substituted as a marine protein in feed.”

For obvious reasons, I read the aquarium’s published study brief, and really just want to salute the Children’s Aquarium team for this bold, vital work.
