novel begins with a marine biologist trying to convince others that one of the Humpback whales he is trying to study and save has markings on his tailfin that remarkably resemble the phrase, "Bite Me". Turns out that the bottom of the sea is inhabited by a being known as The Goo, an ever-changing sentient mass of organic material. It is able to create organic devices from itself and has spawned [[CivilizedAnimal anthropomorphic whale]] drones and {{Living Ship}}s disguised as normal whales; Bite Me happens to be one of these. Oh, and [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction it had sex with Amelia Earhart]] and the result of the tryst is [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent one of the other protagonists]].
