    If you deal with pollution better than your predator, you can thrive. That's the conclusion derived from a study on the relationship between predator and their prey in polluted waters. As an example, glass shrimps eat substantially less in polluted environments, yet their population still blooms. The reason is their natural predator, killifish, are more negatively affected by pollution than the shrimps. But it's not always that simple.
