This event has passed and is archived.

Armand Kuris

Oarfish are so mysterious that the recent discovery of some large specimens washing ashore in California went viral on the web. But even more mysterious are the parasites collected from one of those oarfish. These parasites tell us some surprising things about the deep-sea animals that feed on oarfish and also which prey oarfish consume.

Armand Kuris is a professor of zoology in the department of ecology, evolution, and marine biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
