Today, Nathan and I discuss how insurance companies know flooding; drink beer for stellar sea lions; drunk fish on CO2; whaling countries blocking protections
Ocean Talk Friday is a fun tradition that Nathan and I started and we continue to have fun with it. We hope that you guys enjoy it too. After a brief update on our Marine Conservation Fantasy Football Pool, we talk about the following articles:
1) Insurance companies find wetlands could have saved $625 million in damage;
2) A brewing company made a beer to help study stellar sea lions;
3) Fish are drunk off CO2 and swimming into predators; and,
4) Whaling countries rallying to block South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary.

Today we discussed the following:
- More than US$625 million in property damages were prevented during Hurricane Sandy in 2012 by coastal wetlands along the coast northeast coast of the United States, according to a new report released on Tuesday. Canadian Underwriter reports.
- Brewbound reports: Fort Bragg, CA — The ongoing thirst for the hippest and hoppiest IPA has taken a new turn – a conscience for conservation. North Coast Brewing Company located in Fort Bragg, CA, has launched a new brew which raises money for marine mammal research and rescue with the sale of every bottle or keg.
News Atlas brings us this fascinating article: Previous research has outlined the impact of the expected rise in ocean acidity on marine animals, consequences that include compromised respiratory function, aerobic performance and dulled senses such smell, sight and hearing. And with CO2 on the rise, currently at around 400 ppm and anticipated to nearly double by the end of the century, the outlook looks grim indeed.
- “There is an urgent need for us to better protect our whales, dolphins and porpoises. This sanctuary would have done just that and supported the growth of sustainable whale watching tourism and fostered much-needed research,” said Josh Coates, marine campaigner with the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
