This image is from the graphic novel "A mysterious disease in Antarctic fish", created by University of Oregon undergraduate Chloe DaMommio and biologists John Postlethwait and Thomas Desvignes, and based on the true events and findings associated with the scientific article "A parasite outbreak in notothenioid fish in an Antarctic fjord" (2022), published in iScience.
