Fat innkeeper worms were in the news recently as a mass stranding of “penis fish”! In fact, they’re neither, and as proud spoon worms, fat innkeeper worms are an integral part of the seafloor community of the West Coast, so we did a livestream yesterday to highlight this amazing animal!
Fat innkeeper worms filter seawater for food and provide shelter for many species in their burrows, while being a source of food for many animals, including sea otters! They’re thriving and deserve praise. Live your truth Urechis caupo!
