Not ceph related but discussed finding a new cycling bacteria (anammox) bacteria that performs the ammonia -> nitrogen gas cycle without producing nitrite and nitrate (as occurs in our tanks, commonly referred to as denitrifying bacteria).

Unexpected interaction between ocean currents and bacteria Bo Thamdrup, Loreto De Brabandere Sept 2013 - 1 page summary and contact information

For the first time, researchers have successfully demonstrated an interaction between ocean currents and bacteria: The unexpected interaction leads to the production of vast amounts of nitrogen gas in the Pacific Ocean. This takes place in one of the largest oxygen free water masses in the world - and these zones are expanding. This can ultimately weaken the ocean's ability to absorb CO2.
