The nanov are amphibious creatures local to the Atlai.
The nanov release chemicals that support the growth of plants around the river's edge, as well as produce food to feed fish in the river. Nanov feast off of the smaller parasites that would otherwise infest and kill the flora and fish in the area. It appears that they also thrive off of radiation; it's possible that the radiation actually mutated them to be a much larger size, as evident by the giant nanov near the river basin.
