Packing of saltine is found inside Jurassic fish living on the ocean floor

It is not only by its appearance that the coelacanth is a fish known as a “living fossil”: it is estimated that this species existed in the current evolutionary state 400 million years ago. Keeping for the longest time the same genetic characteristics at the bottom of the oceans, where the coelacanth lives, it is impossible to measure the amount of adversity this fish has faced over time to survive.
For what nature manages to improve and maintain in millions of years, the human being manages to destroy in a moment: a photo shared by the NGO Blue Planet Society shows a dead coelacanth and, leaving from inside, a plastic package of a salgadinho.

The photo was taken by a fisherman in Indonesia in 2016, but only came to the public now. Although living in the depths – where habitat changes occur radically slower than in other parts of the ocean or the planet – even coelacanth seems at last threatened by the effect of human action on the seas. Until then it was precisely the unaltered state of the ocean floor, coupled with its genetic characteristics, which made the coelacanthus survive with such resilience. Such characteristics made the coelacanth a point off the curve of the evolutionary process: estimates by biologists suggest that such a species should have been extinct 65 million years ago. In order to have an idea of ​​the longevity of this species, it is believed that the coelacanth is close relative of the first vertebrate to leave the water to the earth. If the current scenario is already apocalyptic with respect to pollution in the seas, the prognosis is even more appalling: surveys say that by 2025 the oceans will be three times more polluted than today. Apparently not even the indestructible coelacanth will be able to overcome human ignorance.
