Ocean Talk Friday: Alternative Fisheries; Greenpeace Attacks Professor; Shell Spills Oil; and Palau declares 80% No Take

There were a number of articles that we could talk about this week, but Nathan and I narrowed it down to 4 important topics for Ocean Talk Friday:

Today we discussed the following:

  • Shell is working to repair leak that spilled 2000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico: “Thursday leak created a 13 mile-wide slick on the surface of the water, from group of underwater oil wells 97 miles south of Port Fourchon, Louisiana…More than 88,000 gallons of oily-water mixture has been released from the Glider Field, a group of four underwater oil wells located around 97 miles south of Port Fourchon in Louisiana. The company said it suspects a line connecting these wells to a Shell platform leaked oil on Thursday, creating a 13 mile-wide slick on the surface of the water.”
  • Keeping Palau Prisine:  “The tiny country of Palau has created a major marine protected area to keep the ocean healthy for marine life – and people.”
