The amount of water a clam filters is called the clearance rate. This rate is typically measured in liters per hour per gram of clam mass. The clearance rate can decline if the bivalves "clam up" in response to stresses from temperature or salinity. They can also be reduced if the clams' gills are clogged by non-food particles, such as during a storm. The clams may increase clearance rate if they sense more plankton in the water, or if they are trying to bulk up before spawning! #clamfacts
"Letters from Watson will let you read through the entirety of the Sherlock Holmes short stories over the course of one year via bitesize emails... Emails will begin January 1st 2023. I’ve chosen this date to avoid conflicting with other ‘daily email literature’ projects, and because it is the date when all Sherlock Holmes stories will be in the public domain in the US for the first time!"

Nervously joining Mastodon to post cat pictures. ^_^
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
