Today we discussed the following:

  • The Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST) is requesting input on the overall framing and content of a plan for Ocean Research in the Coming Decade (“the Plan”). The SOST is chartered under the National Science and Technology Council to advise and assist on national issues related to ocean science and technology. From the Office of the Federal Register
  • Rhode Island played a key role in creation of a regional ocean planning document, the first to be submitted to federal authorities. Members of the Northeast Regional Planning Body, which includes 10 tribes, 10 federal agencies and the Fishery Management Council, submitted the completed plan to the National Ocean Council on Oct. 19. As reported by The Westerly Sun
  • The Ocean Science Council of Australia, an independent group of researchers, has criticised a government review that recommended significant cuts to marine reserves. The group says the review would expand the use of destructive fishing practices. As reported in The Guardian

  • The Christian Science Monitor tells us: Out in the open ocean there is no place to hide from a hungry predator. Marine animals must devise novel ways of going undetected in plain sight. Being translucent, like most of the little crustaceans that belong to the suborder Hyperiidea, can help. Still, savvy predators can glimpse the tasty morsels floating around when light glints off of their bodies.
