How much life is in a drop of sea water?


Miriam Goldstein is a marine biologist and knows what she’s talking about when it comes to this stuff.

Whoops, I thought they were dice in the process of replicating.

Does anyone here know if there is any truth to the piece of trivia saying that except for the salt ocean water is generally cleaner than tap water?

I tried to track down the photo when it first came out, but hit a viral-photo dead end. I think we could have had a better conversation about zooplankton ID if you simply pointed me to the link, rather than immediately adopting a rude and ungracious tone. Regardless, I appreciate the information, and have updated my post.

Mark Ohman, incidentally, was my Ph.D. advisor.
