  • Harvard Business Review reports: A brain that can solve highly complex problems, create art, and feel compassion, our clever brains let us down in one key respect: greenhouse gases and other byproducts of our very living now pose an accelerating threat to the future of the planet and its diverse forms of interconnected life, including our own.
  • Forbes tells us: Brexit Allows Us To Solve This Haddock Conservation Problem By Leaving The CFP
  • With the current administration attempting to torpedo NOAA’s incredible SeaGrant program, I’ve gotten into a reflective mood. One could highlight the tremendous return on investment of SeaGrant – 750% for every dollar spent. Or the thousands of people who have been employed (jobs!) off of SeaGrant. Or the reams and reams of awesome ocean science, vital coastal protection knowledge, tasty farmed seafood, or ways fishing has been made more sustainable and profitable due to SeaGrant.
  • Daily Comet tells us about: A new study has found which birds, fish, insects and other animals affected by the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill should be given top priority for conservation, protection and research in hopes of reducing damage in the event of similar disasters.
  • (3BL Media/Justmeans) – ​UK startup ​ARC Marine​ ​has received a starting loan from Virgin Start​Up to design and build artificial reefs to protect indigenous white-clawed freshwater crayfish from the lethal effects of illegal fishing trawlers, which are decimating fish stocks worldwide.
