Fatty acid biomarkers analysis was performed on juvenile and adult northern krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica) to determine variability in diet between individuals and the consequences for their growth rates. Animals were sampled from Gullmarsfjorden, western Sweden during September 2004 and incubated for 4 days to measure instantaneous growth rate (IGR) before subsequent fatty acid analysis. We found positive linear relationships between IGR and certain fatty acid concentrations within adult specimens. In particular, highest growth was seen in individuals containing high concentrations of 18:2(n-6) and 18:3(n-6), indicative of filamentous algae and/or terrestrial carbon dietary sources, and 16:4(n-1), a biomarker fatty acid for diatoms. Similar relationships were not evident for juvenile krill. In an accompanying study, stomach content analyses established that adult krill had been feeding on a diverse range of red, brown and green benthic filamentous algae, which contain fatty acids of the (n-6) series. Incidence of filamentous algae in the stomachs of juvenile krill was much lower, possibly reflecting the shallower water depths inhabited by this maturity stage. Although a benthic feeding mode has previously been observed for M. norvegica, this is the first direct evidence to indicate that benthic food sources can be important in supporting the growth of this euphausiid. Furthermore, high variability in growth rates and fatty acid concentrations between individuals suggest a diversity of feeding strategies within this fjordic population. read more

First Lady Michelle Obama, the ship’s sponsor, christened the ship before an audience of approximately 7,500 people.USS Illinois will be delivered to the Navy in 2016.Virginia-class submarines are among the most effective platforms in the Navy’s portfolio. These submarines are equipped to wage multi-dimensional warfare around the globe. In addition to anti-submarine, anti-surface ship and counter-mine warfare, Illinois will support surveillance, special operations and covert strike missions.[mappress mapid=”17158″]Image: US Department of Defense read more
Middletown, Oh. — A Middletown Ohio city councilman is proposing a “two chance” policy for drug addicts.Dan Picard says each time paramedics respond to an overdose victim a citation is issued requiring a court appearance or community service. When that subject does not show up in court or fails to complete community service on two occasions, the third time that person overdoses no help would be dispatched.City officials are exploring the legal implications of the proposal before moving forward.Picard says the idea is not a solution but a response to limited resources. He notes that the city paid $1.2 million in 2016 to respond to 535 opiate overdoses, 77 of those were fatal. This year the cost is expected to rise above $2 million.Middletown has the fourth highest overdose rate in Ohio. read more
Through 41 games, senior Jennifer Krueger is batting .366 with 48 hits, 28 runs scored and four RBIs.[/media-credit]It’s crunch time for the Wisconsin softball team and head coach Yvette Healy.At the halfway point of the Big Ten season, the Badgers have 10 Big Ten games remaining to solidify their record. With hopes for an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament in June, Wisconsin (23-18, 3-7) will welcome Illinois (19-17, 6-4) to Goodman Diamond for an important weekend series.With Wisconsin’s next eight conference games coming against the Big Ten’s top five teams, Healy knows the task ahead for Wisconsin will be difficult.“The Big Ten is way better this year than it was last year,” Healy said. “From an RPI standpoint as a conference it’s doing great, which makes every game a lot tougher. I’m happy from what I’ve seen so far, I’m proud of the Big Ten for how tough it is.”Healy is also pleased of her young team’s success thus far in her inaugural season as head coach.“I’m pleased with where we’re at,” Healy said. “I’d like to keep getting some wins here but I think the girls have been giving us a lot and we’re getting a lot from them.”After two tough series against great pitchers in Minnesota’s Sara Moulton and Indiana’s Morgan Melloh, the Badgers hope their recent experiences against tough pitching will prove fruitful for its offense against Illinois.“It really helps a lot, facing pitching like that,” senior Jennifer Krueger said. “The way the ball comes off Illinois’ hands will probably be a lot different and hopefully easier to track and hit.”Illinois’ probable starter for Saturday’s matchup will be sophomore Pepper Gay. While Gay currently allows a little more than three runs per game, she shouldn’t be taken lightly. As a freshman, the Illini pitcher posted a 16-1 record and a 1.46 ERA.“I hope that we have a good, aggressive offense approach,” Healy said. “Illinois has one of the best offenses in the country. It’s fun to play teams like that because you learn from them. I hope watching how aggressive they are will rub off on the team.”Aggressive indeed, the Illini average a team batting average of .296 with four players having .300-plus averages. But Illinois’ rock lies in their leadoff hitter, senior Danielle Zymkowitz.Zymkowitz currently holds a .409 batting average, the seventh-best in the Big Ten. Illinois’ leadoff hitter has also scored 42 run this season, the second-best total in the conference. If Wisconsin wants to limit the Illinois offense, it will have to prevent Zymkowitz from reaching first base the entire series.“I think Zymkowitz is the best leadoff hitter in the conference,” Healy said. “She’s a kid who’s really fun to watch, she really runs the bases well. We’ll have to keep her off the bases. She’ll cause a lot of havoc. We’ll have to limit her like we limited Minnesota’s leadoff hitter on Wednesday.”The Badgers are still getting used to having a completely healthy lineup. If the Badgers hope to keep pace with the red-hot Illini bats, the Wisconsin freshmen will need to continue their success. With the Badgers adjusting their lineup with the return of freshmen Michelle Mueller and Mary Massei, Wisconsin will continue to lean on the familiar bats of freshmen Krueger and Stephanie Peace.“I’m comfortable wherever I end up in the order,” Peace said. “I’m just in there to help the team anyway I can. I try to get better everyday. We expect our team to improve every game. Against Illinois, we just need our offense to play our game and do the little things right.”“There’s a ton of potential with these freshmen,” Krueger said. “Before Mary and Michelle got hurt they were a big part of the offense. Having them back is great; we shouldn’t rely on them completely, but it obviously helps.”The Badgers also gained considerable depth with the injuries. With other players filling in for the injured freshmen, more Badgers played in the field and gained considerable experience that will only help down the road.“In their absence we still did a good job,” Healy said. “They both bring a nice spark for us with their ability to get game-changing hits. We’re looking for big things, but it still isn’t going to be easy. Illinois has some good pitchers, they’ve gotten some big wins this year, so we aren’t taking anything for granted. I’m proud of the way we’ve responded to adversity this season.” read more
