I talk about a mass die off in Nova Scotia; a 105 year old orca is believed to be deceased; and, eelgrass is doing well in Puget Sound
I take on Ocean Talk Friday on my own this week as Nathan Johnson will be taking on a different role this year due to his life becoming business. We will try and get him back whenever we can because, well…he’s awesome!!!
Here is what I discuss on today’s podcast:
1) A mass herring die off as well as various invertebrate species (lobster, crabs, startfish, mussels, shrimp and clams);
2) The oldest living orca, “Granny” (known to scientists as J2), in the Southern Resident Population is considered to be deceased; and,
3) Eelgrass in Puget Sound is doing well other than localized areas.
Enjoy the podcast!

Links Discussed in this episode:
- A mystery surrounding Nova Scotia begs the question: Why are dead lobsters, crabs and herring washing up along this Nova Scotia shore? Federal scientists are testing water samples and scanning images of the bottom of St. Marys Bay, hoping to determine what caused thousands of herring and sea creatures to wash ashore near Digby, N.S. But ultimately, they’re stumped!
- CBS News brings us this sad story:The oldest member of the small population of closely-watched endangered Puget Sound orcas has been missing for months and is now likely dead, bringing the toll of dead or missing whales to seven in 2016, researchers in Washington state reported.The orca labeled J2 and nicknamed Granny had been spotted thousands of times over 40 years of orca surveys but has not been seen since October, according to the Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island, a nonprofit group that keeps the federal government’s annual census of the whales.
- Eelgrass, a marine plant crucial to the success of migrating juvenile salmon and spawning Pacific herring, is stable and flourishing in Puget Sound, despite a doubling of the region’s human population and significant shoreline development over the past several decades.
