Fish eat a lot of calcium and poop out calcium carbonate. And now it seems that the calcium carbonate in fish poop may help buffer the ocean and protect against the acid ocean death caused by excess CO2. Remember high school chemistry and buffers? If not, shame on you. You should have paid more attention instead of ogling the sexy person in the row in front of you.
And now Milton Love, the fish biologist, has penned an ode to fish poop:
There once was a mola (I read it)And you thought I was wierd.
Who angrily said (I must edit)
"I nourished the sea
With what comes out of me
And never get one word of credit!"
