Hypersaline polychaetes

Dear Polychaete Colleagues,

A local researcher has inquired about polychaetes and their ability to live 
and reproduce in hypersaline conditions.  This question arises from 
research in the Salton Sea in California, USA.  This sea is man-made 
accident (early 1900's) and currently has a salinity of about 47 and rising.  
Nereis succinea and Streblospio benedicti are currently thriving there. 
Please respond directly to me at the email address below or to the entire 
group if you wish.  

Thanks in advance for your support.

Worm regards,
