On 29.05.2018 a German news magazine reported: An international research team wants to capture all living things in the legendary Loch Ness for the first time. DNA traces are to be collected on a broad basis in the Scottish lake, said the University of Otago in New Zealand. The team is headed by biomedicine professor Neil Gemmell. Incidentally, the researchers also hope that there is a real basis for the legend of the monster Nessie. From June, the scientists will examine samples from the water for genetic material of living things. "Whenever a creature moves through its environment, it leaves tiny DNA fragments of skin, scales, feathers, fur, feces, and urine. This DNA can be captured, sequenced, and then used to identify these creatures, "Gemmell said. Research Manager Gemmell is open for everything.
The aim is to create a detailed list of all creatures living in Loch Ness and to compare them with the creatures from other lakes. "Big fish like catfish and sturgeon were suggested as possible explanations for the monster myth, and we can test that idea and others very well," he says. If they actually encounter DNA that resembles the primeval sea creature, he would be surprised, the researcher admits.
My opinion: Nessie lives ... and tourism is booming around Loch Ness! Let's wait for the research result.
