Sea Star Regeneration



Sea stars have an amazing ability to regenerate lost limbs. In this video Professor Blake Barron from Santa Barbara City College describes the process of sea star regeneration.

While doing a local beach dive I came across this example of what he describes, a two legged sea star with two new limbs starting to bud.

Now there's a right proper payback to the fishermen for their cruelty and
arrogance against the sea stars. I hope they all lost their asses in that
little war against nature. It would be great if all of them lost their
boats for a few years so that the sea might get back some of it's strength
and populations. I would much rather see an ocean full of life than a
bunch of smelly grungy fishermen filling the bars along the coast. They
might even make good fish food!

so wait... it can't regenerate if the central disc is damaged, yet somehow,
ripping large numbers of them in half, doubles their numbers, and decimates
the clams.

Author TheBlueJacket (10 months)
the star fish was just like "I don't wanna go"

Author ItsJustMeJerk (11 months)
Does orangish-yellow energy shoot out of their limbs when they regenerate?

Wait, so does that mean that both parts of the starfish are alive? it has

if a starfish is cut in half and it regenerates 2 would that be considered

how ironic, the fishermen tried to kill every sea star they found and ended
up making more lol

Author Phi Cao Nguyen (2 years)
we should take the seastar's genes and insert it with our genes, maybe we
one day will regenerate our arms and legs if we lose'em... its just a
hypothesis :p

@kinderstrudel But don't they have a nervous system? So wouldn't it hurt?
or are there not enough nerves in their arms to react to the loss of a limb?

Yes sir, there was a story about a bunch of sailors who hated starfish
because they constantly ate all of their fish that they were trying to
catch. So each time they caught one they would cut it in half. Lol they
ended up tripling their population. Wait I'm listening to the video and I
think they might have just told the same story I did.... But whatever.

It's been a while since I've read any books on echinoderms but, can the
broken limb of the Sea star actually become a new sea star itself? Or am I
mistaking its regenerative capabilities for the Planaria?

Author Reneator (3 years)
@UniteForgetLeftRight its the same problem like with those squid at the
japanese coast. With killing them, they will set free Eggs, which will turn
into little squidproducing plant like livings, which will produce big
number of that squid. So its really like: "you kill one, even more will
come back"!

1:02 That is exactly why some parts of China's ocean is over run with Jelly
Fish. When they over fish the sea beds, they also capture Jellies and when
before they toss them overboard, they slice them up and lets all the
Jellies eggs out.

Author Cannabissed (3 years)
sooo if you cut a starfish in half, will you get 2 starfish as they both
will regenerate?

Author captainxshredsalot (3 years)

Author dTMGames @ Appstore (3 years)
Did he mentioned that it is possible for a whole starfish to grow from one
of its leg? Like a starfish have 5 legs, rip all 5 and if they all
regenerate you can have 6 starfishes.
