Superb Mississippi River shrimp
Younger freshwater shrimp are stirring within the murky Mississippi River, cued by warming water temperatures to go upstream in nice darting hordes every night time. Quickly, the grownup females will stir too, carrying lots of orange eggs tons of of miles downstream and releasing their progeny the place the Mississippi meets the Gulf of Mexico. This wonderful and still-mysterious life cycle put the Ohio River Shrimp, Macrobrachium ohione, in hurt’s means final summer season as a tsunami of BP oil lapped endlessly on the Mississippi mouth and Louisiana shores. Watch this Nationwide Audubon Society video on one of many nice migrations on the planet.
