Researchers are discovering new creatures off Victoria’s shore


Scientists at the Royal BC Museum are expanding the institution’s Invertebrate collection and it’s been surprisingly simple.  Several discoveries have been made in the shallow tidal waters at Clover Point.  Among the discoveries, crustaceans not thought to be in our waters, worms, and even one critter that may be new to science.  These discoveries all came from a matchbox sized sample of seagrass.
