Why should you bother about this little creature? The abundance of this amphipod (sv. vitmärla) can affect the whole ecosystem in the Baltic Sea since the amphipod is an important food source for the herring, which in turn affect the cod - one of the most important food fishes! Matias Ledesma Gelos and Agnes Karlsson are at Askölaboratoriet to study how algal blooms affect amphipods.
