Despite the consequences of modern human civilization, nature still finds a way to adapt and survive. A team of researchers from the University of California, Davis has found that the Atlantic Killfish has evolved to adapt to estuaries containing toxic polluted waters.
Called "extremophiles," certain small fish are predisposed to remain lively and (well) alive in toxic waters when other fish cannot do so.
Toxic stormwater has been linked to the death of coho salmon along the U.S. West Coast. Now, using a simply filtration system, researchers may be able to save them from extinction.
