OREGON / WASHINGTON COAST MARINE SCIENCE REFERENCE

Past articles and material from Oregon Coast Beach Connection on a variety of marine science and biology subjects. More added periodically. See the search box at top to find specific subjects


Strange Blue Velella Velella Return to Oregon Coast, Some Spots Thicker Than Others
- The alerts are going out: the blue tide has come in. The Oregon coast is getting hit by another wave of little blue creatures called velella velella (or Purple Sailors or by-the-wind Sailors)


Janthina / Violet Snails: Tiny, Rare Purple Weirdos of Oregon Coast
- They are what is known Janthina janthina, otherwise known as the Violet Snail, Storm Snail or even just the common purple snail. Yet there’s nothing really that common about them here on the west coast of the U.S. In fact, no one in Oregon really knows much about them


The Kooky and the Cool on Oregon Coast Right Now: Pryosomes, Ghost Forests
- The small, tube-like creatures resemble plastic to some degree. The crazy thing is they are in actuality tiny colonies of hundreds of other even smaller creatures.


California Sea Cucumber Breathes Out of Its Butt: Weird Washington, Oregon Coast Science
- They are a true freak of the deep along the Oregon coast and Washington coast. The California Sea Cucumber is also known by the names Giant Sea Cucumber and Giant Red Sea Cucumber, and they’re a truly weird mix of alien movie and punk rock aesthetics


Burrowing Sea Cucumber: Oregon Coast Storm Unearths An Interesting Critter
- Weird little critters called burrowing sea cucumbers (Leptosynapta clarki) were suddenly found in abundance


Rarity of Oregon / Washington Coast: the Trippy Mola Mola / Sunfish (Video)
- Mola mola or ocean sunfish usually lives well south of the Pacific Northwest (and reportedly well offshore), but occasionally the kooky, large, semi-round fish wanders as north as British Columbia

Oh, the Lowly Sand Flea: They Should be Exalted on the Oregon Coast - What kind of sand fleas are there on the Oregon coast and what do they do? First of all, they're technically called amphipods. They're a kind of tiny crustacean and not related to fleas.


Tiny and See-Through on the Oregon Coast: Adorable but Eerie
- This tiny see-through beastie is actually a Dungeness crab, but a very baby one. They go through this stage early in life, becoming eerily transparent but with a dash of blue.


Sea Gooseberry: What is That Translucent Thing on Oregon Coast Beaches? Surprising Science
- It’s called a Sea Gooseberry (Pleurobrachi bachei) or comb jelly, and it shows up fairly often during spring and summer on the beaches

Whales and Their Legends: Ewww, 'Globsters' of Oregon / Washington Coast and Their Paranormal Past - Perhaps the grossest thing you can find on the Oregon coast or Washington coast (or any beach in the world) is what is sometimes referred to as the “globster.” It’s a particularly disgusting form of stranded whale corpse

Oregon Coast Science Experts: What is Sea Foam? Foam in the ocean is just sea bubbles, started off by tiny little phytoplankton that have died and the way their skeletons change the surface tension of the water
