Questions about the required immersion of dishes and utensils in a Mikvah.

Questions about the required immersion of dishes and utensils - that come in contact with edible food - in a Kosher Mikvah, or ocean.

This requirement is inferred from the verse in Bemidbar 31:23 - אַךְ בְּמֵי נִדָּה יִתְחַטָּא - which Chazal interpret to mean besides, in the Mikvah a Niddah can use they [the vessels captured from the non-Jews) need to be dipped.
