Today’s stories feature how sharks adapt to eating; Lab studies vs Field Studies and the questions they answer; Restoring Oysters in NYC; Protecting the Oceans; and, Millennials our the future in saving the ocean?
Nathan and I are back again this week with a FULL episode of Ocean Talk Friday. Last week we only got to cover 2 stories due to a bad Skype connection (podcasting problems), but this week we were able to really bring it this week!
Today’s stories include:
1) How do Shark Teeth bite (talking about adaptation);
2) Do Ocean Acidification Laboratory Studies provide the same results as field studies (hint: no);
3) The Billion Oyster Program in New York City;
4) We are only starting to protect the Ocean;
5) Millennials are the future of our oceans?
As usual, Nathan and I dive into the articles to translate what it means to Marine Science and Conservation.

Because I want to talk to you!
Today we discussed the following:
- A recent study out of the University of Washington sought to understand why shark teeth are shaped differently and what biological advantages various shapes have by testing their performance under realistic conditions.
When it comes to the threat of ocean acidification, laboratory studies paint a disturbing picture. But in the wild, the picture can look vastly different.

- The Washington Post tells us all about Ocean Conservation in its earliest stages: A decade ago, only a tiny fraction of the world’s oceans had been protected from overfishing and other environmental threats. The United States had scores of national parks and other landmarks. Other countries had safeguarded cultural, historical and natural treasures. But for the oceans, such efforts remained in their infancy.
- As shared by Sebastian Nicholls: Our ocean is not just beautiful, but also essential for life. It provides half the oxygen we breathe, regulates climate, and feeds millions. The next generation’s future depends on it.
