北加州很热,很烤!成千上万的贻贝被“煮熟”致死!

据国外媒体报道,美国北加州一直受到历史热浪的冲击,而周边地区也经历了惊人的高温。当地着名的渔港Bodega Bay有一种罕见的现象。成千上万的咸水贻贝很温暖。大海被“捣毁”致死,大量海洋生物也受到影响。

一些美国媒体报道称“它太热了!北加利福尼亚海岸的贻贝已经煮熟了。“这些原始生活在加利福尼亚北部海岸的野生贻贝在高温烘烤下打开。贝壳,露出白色花朵的肉.

北加州波尔多湾海洋保护区研究协调员Jackie Sones已在这里工作了15年,他从未见过这样的景象。

“当我接近现场时,我立即看到数百只贻贝全部死亡。”Sones在7月1日告诉美国有线电视新闻网。

这只是冰山一角。当Sones进行更多调查时,她发现死贻贝的数量远远超过几百只,并且成千上万的贻贝在海岸上死亡。

将美味的贻贝浸泡在一个装有酱汁的碗中,然后搭配白葡萄酒,这听起来很棒。然而,在北加利福尼亚州博德加湾的海滩上,这些“用自己的贝壳煮熟”的死贻贝依然牢牢地附着在岩石上,这绝对不是你想要的美味贻贝。

当贻贝活着并且健康时,它们的壳很紧。当它们在自然界中成群地死亡时,这些壳体打开以露出内部组织或空壳。

在加利福尼亚州北部的博德加湾沿岸140英里处,现场令人震惊和令人心碎。 Sones告诉卫报,贻贝死亡会影响整个生态系统。

“Mubs are called basic species, the equivalent of trees in forests, which provide habitat for many marine life, so when core habitats are destroyed, it can cause ripple effects throughout the ecosystem,” says Sones. Northern California has been swept by high temperatures since June. In the large-scale death of mussels in early July, experts found that the temperature of the internal tissue of the mussels that died on the rocks rose to 40.5 degrees Celsius.

A similar incident occurred in 2004, also on the same coast, but experts believe this is a larger death.

"Similar events are sure to become more frequent and more serious." University of British Columbia biologist Christopher Harry told the Guardian.

These unusual phenomena reflect the changes in extreme climate and are also a wake-up call for humanity. In the words of marine ecologist Brian Simmons, “mussels are the basic species on which hundreds of other animals depend.” This group death also indicates the fragility of marine ecology.
