However, in ethmaloa unpolluted Sud Boulay Bay, other species can be more abundant, increasing the inter-species competition for food and habitat. Another hypothesis is that the environment, and specifically the pollution, triggers the adaptive response. The three bays are described in more detail by Chantraine and Dufour fimbriataa Durand et al.
