A REPORT ON A DARWINIAN MUTATION OF THE NASSARIIDAE
NOT for release until 1st April 2015

An experiment has been successfully conducted on the common Dog Whelk species Nassariidae. Over a period of time selected samples of the common whelk, shown in Picture No 1 have been isolated and placed on special supervised grounds, off the River Colne near to Point Clear Bay. These special whelks have been allowed to feed on an artificial food known as ‘looflirpa’. a concoction of marine detritus first developed by Swiss scientists working in one of their marine conservation areas.
This material has proved to be worth its weight in gold and the embargo on the release of information has been designed to prevent insider knowledge affecting the share price for a few investors only, rather than a full market launch in the near future.
The common whelk is a good food resource in that they are calorie rich with 137 calories in 100g of whelk meat and only 0.34g of fat in an average whelk. The Central African region known as the ‘Duarf’ is co-operating with the scientists and is expected to offer their native population, living in a very dry region known as ‘Dah-Neebreve’, prepared samples of this whelk meat. These people only eat very poor vegetable matter at present and it is hoped this source of protein will prove to be a major food resource in the years ahead.
This must be one of the most exciting prospects for solving hunger in parts of the world!


For comparison purposes this picture shows a normal ‘Dog Whelk’, a species caught anywhere in British waters. The specimen shown is not one of those subject to the special growth programme, but is one you may pick up off the sea floor tomorrow.

The whelk shell in this picture, is empty for health reasons and the ‘meat’ has been removed and eaten.
It shows an earlier stage in the secret development of the whelk as a superior food resource. The shell is being held by a local fisherman who assists with the project.



This shell shows the remains of the largest whelk ever known to man. Its meat could feed a whole village and at this size, after being roasted over a fire, the meat can be cut in slices and salted down for later use.
Landing these specimens is difficult, as an individual large whelk needs a flotation collar fitting, then towing ashore.

Above you have seen the very first publicity given to this ‘Feed The World’ health project, even if the article is a little premature. It is expected that many people will be interested and the Swiss scientists in charge are said to call those clamouring for shares ‘Diputs’, which in the Swiss language is not particularly complementary.
The local fisherman in the above pictures was greatly aided by Michael De-Bono a local sculptor with a committed interest in developing marine life and conservation, the two of them working together on their part of the test procedures. Our fisherman Tony said that without Michael’s help he could have done nothing on his own and the whole business would have been too difficult to get off the ground in the first place.
At least this article meets the specific date deadline for publicising the work above!
