Study: Oysters are governed by the phases of the moon
"Study: Oysters are governed by the phases of the moon"

"Many sea creatures have biological clocks linked to the lunar cycle, which conjures up the unexpected patterns of behavior. It confirms a new study from the University of Bordeaux published in the journal Biology letters, reports National Geographic."

"French scientists have studied how the oysters open themselves to eat or reproduce. The results show that oysters prefer to stay open during the new moon and the crescent, while the time keeps itself closed when it is full moon."

"What it depends on is not known, but a forskargissning is that their access to food and the urge to mate is affected by the lunar cycle which regulates the tides and thus the ocean currents."

"A different animal which relates to the moon is ringmaskarten Palolo viridis, who spend the greater part of his life to look for food on the sea bottom. In the spring begins the worm's back end, where the egg and sperm are formed, to grow. And at the same time every year, two days during the last crescent of the months of October and november, detaches itself to the end of the tails from the females and swim blindly up to the surface, and in the evening."
