I am proud to have Dr. Dave Ebert back on the podcast to discuss deep-sea sharks from around the world. Dave gives us career advice, tells us a story about how he and colleagues discovered a species of skate in the North Pacific (that was more abundant then originally thought) and talks about his upcoming expedition to Sri Lanka to look for deep-sea sharks.

I am covering 3 Ocean News stories for today's episode: 1) There were 300 dead thresher sharks found on the side of the road in Mexico and investigators are saying it has to do with organized crime; 2) A fisher in Costa Rica was surprised to see plastic pieces, including a lighter, after he cut open his catch...a mahi-mahi fish; and, 3) A Right Whale was spotted off the coast of Naples, Florida which counts as only the 5th sighting of these marine mammals since 1963.

On today's episode for Ocean Talk Friday, I talk about 2 important issues that came across my desk this week. Trump implemented a 30% tax on Imported Solar Panels from China to protect American Jobs; however, the move will likely kill over 20K American jobs. 

The second story I cover is about the Pay-for Internship/Volunteership that is designed to give early career scientists/conservationists experience so that they can get jobs. The problem is that not many people can afford to pay the thousands of dollars for these programs making marine biology more for people that can afford the programs. Is this a case of segregation based on financial status?

Melina Soto from Healthy Reefs, a non-profit organization based in Mexico, is here to talk about the health of the Mesoamerican Coral Reef that spans 4 countries: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. We talk about the rapid decrease from the 1990s to 2006 that triggered a multinational coastal monitoring program to help inform managers and politicians on how they could make better decisions to help the reefs. 

This episode is jam packed with information. You might want to listen to it more than once...I know I did!!!

Right Whales may have their day in court, how to get over the depressing part of conservation and is this the beginning of the end for single use plastic (I certainly hope so!!!) are the topics that I am covering today on the podcast.

Dr. Lyne Morissette joins me today for Ocean Talk Friday where we discuss the East China Sea Ship Collision and Oil Spill that occurred last week. 

We also discuss the Vancouver Aquarium's announcement that they are ending their captive Cetacean program. We talk about the difference between captive cetaceans for entertainment vs rescue and rehabilitation. It's an interesting conversation.

Chris Cilfone and he team are on the quest to accomplish the impossible, filming the birth of a Humpback Whale in the Ocean. Filming an event like this has never been done before so the Kohola (Meaning Whale) team has a huge challenge in front of them. However, National Geographic believe in the them as they provided a small grant to set them on their way and NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Association) has granted the team a permit to approach the whales to get the right shot. 

Now they are looking to you to help them get on the water and stay there so they can capture this epic event. They are crowdfunding for the rest of the campaign to pay for a boat, gas, and other equipment to get them on the water as long as possible. 

Check out their Go Fund Me Page to be a part of the film!!!

Happy Monday Folks! Today's episode I chat about: 

1) Wether a whale saved a marine biologist from a tiger shark (8:52);

2) Why the Trump Administration gave Florida an exemption from oil and gas exploration/drilling and not other states (18:19); and,

3) Why Blue Crab pee can be good for the health of oyster habitats in Georgia. (28:00)

Melissa Marquez joins me on the podcast today to discuss the hot topics of the week in Marine Science and Conservation. This week, we discuss a push to ban plastic straws in the UK and how Bonnethead sharks have been found to ingest as well as digest seagrass. 

But we first chat about how Melissa is creating the Spanish version of the Speak Up For Blue Podcast called ConCiencia Azul. We talk about how the idea came about and what she is going to be talking about on the podcast.

Hypoxic, or oxygen-depleted zones, are growing in size and number around the world. I cha about why this is happening and my experience working with a research team that measured the extent of the hypoxic zone in the Gulf of Mexico stemming from the Mississippi River. 

I also chat about an article shared by one of our Facebook Group members about how Climate Change is affecting the ratio of males and females of green sea turtles in the Great Barrier Reef. I tell you why this is happening and what the implications are.

The Trump Administration has proposed to open 90% of US Outer Continental Shelf to Oil and Gas Drilling. I discuss what that means for the Marine Environment and its Conservation and how we can prevent these types of changes in the future. (14:53)

I also chat about a recent discussion on the internet about whether we should avoid citing people who have been outed as sexual harassers, sexual predators, or even people known to mistreat their colleagues and employees. (28:15)

Finally, I chat about a recent article that discusses what to do if you come across a cold-stunned sea turtle. (44:35)

Science and Policy articles always give us an insight on how local communities depend on local resources. In today's episode, I discuss an article that studies how breastfeeding is a socio-economic driver for fishing effort. the article describes how malnutrition of impoverished fishing communities are working as a driver for fishers to spend more time trying to catch fish of which there are less because the fish population has been drastically reduced over time. This article proves how local communities prioritize their needs and how their decisions affect their natural resources (i.e. fish).

Climate Change is not proven or disproven by the current Weather. Freezing temperatures have brought on questioning by climate deniers as to whether climate change is real. It's still real and I talk about why during the podcast. 

I also talk about how a cyclone in India dumped 80 tons of plastic debris along its coastline. I bleak reminder of the severity of plastic pollution in our oceans.
