A week on Andros: salty, but so sweet.

April 2, 2009

Tomorrow’s the BIG day. Headed off to Andros. A place I’ve been dreaming of for the past year. Ever since Mrs. Nash showed me pictures of the previous trip in my Zoology class. I was mesmerized by all the colorful fish, breathtaking corals, beautiful sunsets, and amazingly blue waters. I had to go! Tomorrow’s the BIG day. Hope I can get a little sleep.…

Genes not Jeans!

Okay, so for our assignment last time I didn’t really write it down clearly. I wrote on my paper “BLOG POST- Student Comment -20 pts,” I also wrote “POEM- 5 pts...” So, I figured the Blog post consisted of going to the Extreme ‘08 website reading about one of their articles and then blogging about it?

The Apo Scenario provides a ray of hope.

By 1993 the density of the fish had increased… Continue

The needy and the greedy.

Chapter eleven to me was about how stupid Indonesian people are for ruining the coral reefs, plain and simple. Osha discusses two methods the Indonesian people use to fish, dynamite and cyanide.



Dynamite; “Blast fishing” consists of idiots throwing explosives into the water to kill fish among other sea life. They dive down, find all the dead fish that sank because their swim bladder broke and collecting all the ones that float.… Continue

Jakarta Bay :'(

After reading chapter 10 I felt really sad and depressed. It’s a shame the once brilliant abundant Jakarta bay is now what seems one of the worst places to be. I know one thing for sure after reading this chapter, I will NEVER take a vacation to the Jakarta Bay region. Not just because it’s a crappy place to be but because I’d want to slap every single person… Continue

Vaquita porpoise rescued as part of VaquitaCPR conservation project, then released

Scientists with the VaquitaCPR conservation project announced they succeeded in locating and rescuing a highly endangered vaquita porpoise yesterday, but in an abundance of caution the vaquita, which was a calf, was released. VaquitaCPR is trying to save the world's most endangered marine mammal. Less than 30 are left in the world.

Prozac in ocean water a possible threat to sea life

Oregon shore crabs exhibit risky behavior when they're exposed to the antidepressant Prozac, making it easier for predators to catch them, according to a new study.

Life goes on for marine ecosystems after cataclysmic mass extinction

One of the largest global mass extinctions did not fundamentally change marine ecosystems, scientists have found.

Climate shifts shorten marine food chain off California

Environmental disturbances such as El Niño shake up the marine food web off Southern California, new research shows, countering conventional thinking that the hierarchy of who-eats-who in the ocean remains largely constant over time.

Maintaining fish biomass the key to conserving reef fish biodiversity

A new study has found that conserving fish diversity in Madagascar's coral reef systems may depend on maintaining fish biomass above critical levels.
