Montgomery's first encounter with an octopus was with Athena at the New England Aquarium. She writes, “I had the distinct impression she was as curious about me as I was about her….

The Cretaceous–Palaeogene (K–Pg) mass extinction is linked to the rapid emergence of ecologically divergent higher taxa (for example, families and orders) across terrestrial vertebrates, but its impact on the diversification of marine vertebrates is less clear.

Humans make huge use of marine vertebrates, but manta rays may pass the self-awareness test and other fish potentially could too.

One's fluffy, with big ears and whiskers; the other breathes with gills and ripples its way around the ocean. One is a lab animal or household pest; the other is most likely to be seen in the wild, or the bottom of a shallow pool at an aquarium.

“I was frantic, running around like a lunatic, trying to save these animals,” recalls Brown, who is now a marine biologist at Macquarie University in Sydney.

This may seem like a silly thing to investigate, but fish, as a category of animal, are among the most recognizable and used vertebrates on the planet. We raise them as livestock to be consumed.

"It's the first example of lymphatic fluids or the lymphatic system taking part in motion control in vertebrates," Block told Live Science.

In 2014, Crowder and his colleagues were the first to demonstrate eDNA's potential to monitor entire marine vertebrate communities.

“It's really the first time that we've been able to look at the internal health of large whales,” said Elizabeth Burgess, a marine biologist at the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium. “So it's quite groundbreaking just in that alone.” Understanding the plight of right whales in the ...
