In answer to your question, I was considering studying F. japonicus for my master's degree. If I did, I would be looking to see if it sequestered chemicals from the eggs it eats. I am just not sure if it has already been looked at.

Dear Jenny,
It would be an interesting project. I suggest you get in touch with Kirsten Benkendorff [see her message about aplysiid eggs]. She may know of some recent work or work in progress,
Please keep us informed of your progress,
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
