Friday’s Featured Organism: Ruditapes decussatus

Venerupis decussata

I'd make a penis joke, but I'm too tired.

2 hours of train to get to Fano’s Marine Biology Lab, attend a confused lesson and see the fish market and some fishing boats, then 2 hours to get back to Bologna. I’m too tired to think of something original, so here’s Ruditapes decussatus, the grooved carpet shell. I’ve learned today that the regulamentation of the fishing of its family, the Veneridae, is currently the only one in Italy to be fully respected by fishermen, because it advantages them with new, easy-to-use fishing technologies.And that’s pretty much all.
