Sea Salps

Marine biologists located near the Washington State coast line have affirmed a peculiar finding of something that remains somewhat little understood, a bizarre transparent sea creature, with green horns and slime-covered bodies, that have characteristics of both a jelly fish and a slug, formally known as the sea salp. 


Sea Salps

According to researchers, these critters travel by contracting, which causes water to pump through their gelatinous bodies, allowing them to maneuver the ocean. Furthermore, they should not be capable of surviving in the cold waters of the North Pacific ocean, but they somehow are. And thanks to climate change, many have infiltrated the coast of Washington and Oregon, allowing many of the elusive creatures to be spotted by beachcombers.

Lastly, Marine biologists are researching a theorized connection between sea salps and carbon emissions, as the bi-product of their waste (they consume phytoplankton for energy) may help remove carbon dioxide from the upper ocean and perhaps the atmosphere even.
