Speak Up For Blue Podcast

Nathan and I get together before the holidays to chat about some Ocean Species and Conservation.

I feel as though this Ocean Talk Friday Episode with co-host Nathan Johnson is a special one as we covered more species than we normally do, which is fun for us because it brings us back to basic Marine Science and Conservation.

Here are the topics we discussed:
1) Video of a rare deep-sea Chimera (looks like a shark);
2) Ducks in the Andes have a unique adaptation for survival (YES! You read Ducks!);
3) Crab species found at Hydrothermal Vents in Deep Sea clean each other (but they are cannibalistic!); and,
4) New law restricting Seafood imports that can’t prove they don’t harm marine mammals.

Today we discussed the following:

  • The University of Miami tells us: A diving bird, the torrent duck is like a seal or penguin. Not in looks, of course, but in physiology. Like emperor penguins or Weddell seals, University of Miami researchers discovered, torrent ducks have among the highest concentrations of myoglobin, the protein that holds oxygen in muscle tissue.
  • Sam Wong from New Scientist reports:  Even cannibals can be caring. Crabs that live near hydrothermal vents 3,500 metres deep have been seen eating each other. But they also seem to clean each other at other times, presumably eating bacteria off each other’s shells.
  • Science Daily reports on: New restrictions on U.S. seafood imports, which will require seafood to be harvested in accordance with the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), will likely offer significant marine conservation benefits on a global scale. In this Policy Forum, Rob Williams et al. highlight the impacts and challenges involved in this endeavor.
