Glycera (blood) worms are sold commercially by nurseries and aquatic stores in both live, frozen and freeze dried form as a food for aquarium fish and frogs. They are also commonly sold in tackle shops as bait for saltwater fishing.

Aren’t the idiots in academia preparing to espouse the notion that someday pure water will become rare and precious? Isn’t that the next scam err crisis now that the wind has gone out of the climate bullsh!t ?
