An Arctic Discovery

A National Geographic news story Bizarre New Form of Life Found in Arctic Ocean, Scientists Announce, tells of the discovery of a new group of marine algae in the Arctic Ocean. They were named picobiliphytes because of their very small size.

The article indicates the organisms may yield commercial benefits. Quoting from the article: "Phycobilipigments are also rich sources of protein, and they are used as a food source in aquaculture hatcheries... If the new picobiliphytes can be grown in sufficient quantities to provide such a nutrient source, he added, "they will really be valuable."

Psalm 66; Verses 5-7

Come and see what the Lord has done, how awesome his works in man's behalf!

He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot- come, let us rejoice in him.

He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations- let not the rebellious rise up against him.
