Summary: ” It’s just very unusual to find them accordingly close to shore so evenly distributed and so abundant.” Scientists are seizing the possibility to study the animals, which are normally rare, and hence known to some as the “unicorn of the sea.” Hilarie Sorensen, a foregoing graduate student at the University of Oregon who’s part of a new research team set up to study the bloom, told the Guardian, “If we go on to see this many, what impact will it have on the ecosystems here, and what economic impact on the fisheries? These organisms are in factconglomerations of small size zooids—small, multicellular organisms—which come together into tubular shapes that in this case stretch from about six inches to two feet long, according to EarthFix, an offshoot of Oregon Public Broadcasting. “Why they’re here currently is unknown at this point,” Jennifer Fisher, a research assistant with Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, tells EarthFix.”
