We had a slight problem that we never encountered here on the Speak Up For Blue Team: We were asked to take down an episode because our guest's boss was worried that the information that was discussed briefly on an episode was going to affect the future funding from a grantor. 

We didn't agree with the boss, but we didn't want our guests to be put in a more difficult position than they were already in. 

The Speak Up For Blue Team (with 7 podcasts) has communicated a lot of science, but we encounter barriers from time to time. 

In this episode, I give you some ways to overcome those barriers and give reasons why there shouldn't be any barriers at all.

Do you encounter barriers to Science Communication often? Share your experiences in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Taylor Swift does not get fully paid for all of her past songs that she wrote, recorded, and performed all over the world. Someone came un and bought the publishing rights to her songs and is now richer for it. 

A similar situation happens every day in fisheries and transferable quotas are to blame. Listen to the episode to find out more.

Do you think governments should get rid of transferable quotas? Let me know what you think in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Researchers have found that rabbitfish that normally occupy coral reef habitats are moving to cooler waters with kelp forests in which they are eating all of the kelp. Researchers are worried that the fish will leave the forests barren and ruin the habitat for other species.

Educating the public on how to change their behaviour from using single-use plastics to using more sustainable alternatives is the key to reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in the Ocean. 

We keep seeing articles about people trying to clean up the Oceans. There are even companies that are built off of this premise; however, cleaning the Ocean is our last ditch effort and does not mean the Oceans will ever be clean from plastic. We need to stop plastics from getting into the Ocean by refusing single-use plastic. The best way to do this is to focus on educating the public and change their behaviour.

Climate Change is rearing its ugly head in Venice, Italy as the city is entirely submerged in about 5 feet of water. The tide level has broken records three times in one week whereas it would only get high once or twice a year. 

I discuss what the flooding means for Venice and how we need to act now for a better future.

Are you using your best talent in your Marine Conservation Job? Do you even know your best talent? I know I didn't until recently.

It took me almost 20 years to figure out why I wasn't happy at my jobs in Science and Conservation. I am now 40 and working two jobs (one full-time job and one business) to realize what I am good at. 

In this episode, I identify my talent and give you tips on how to identify yours to work in a job in Marine Conservation that you will enjoy.

What is your "hidden talent?" Share your talent in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Invasive species pose a problem to many coastlines across the globe and managers/researchers are always trying to find ways to get rid of them. Researchers at the University of Maine are trying to build are market for high-valued Invasive Green Crab products in the Maine area to help manage the invasive species. 

I discuss the various products that are being developed and the challenges that make it difficult to reach their goal.

You may have seen a plethora of articles and political announcements on tree planting to mitigate (reduce) climate change by absorbing more Carbon Dioxide. As news broke about the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest a few months ago, scientists reiterated the need for trees to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) that contributes to Climate Change. However, trees aren't the only plants that absorb CO2. Seagrasses may even be a better plant type to absorb the GHG.   

In this episode, I discuss the benefit of protecting Seagrass habitats and how countries should consider restoring these useful habitats to help attain the goals set out in the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

There was a great article in The Conservation written by Charlotte Eve Davies about her research on a Spiny Lobster Disease called PaV1. The virus kills lobsters that are infected; however, evidence shows that the virus is contained in algal and seagrass meadows as it doesn't affect adult spiny lobsters. 

Listen to the episode to find out more about the virus and the influence of seagrass meadows.

Link to article: http://theconversation.com/caribbean-seagrass-is-awash-with-infected-lobsters-but-the-habitat-could-be-saving-the-species-121704

How do you think the virus stays within the seagrass meadows? Let me know your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

New restrictions by the Department of Marine Resources in Maine that are designed to help Northern Right Whales are causing the Maine Lobstermen's Association to worry about the negative effect it will have on their industry. 

I provide you with a description of how the whales are affected by the lobster fishery and how the restrictions could improve the whale population.

When I speak to people about their Marine Conservation Careers, I try to recommend specific actions they should take to increase their chances of getting a job and starting/continuing their career. One of my most popular suggestions tends to be looking into the Coastal Environmental Management Program at Duke University.

Today, I am posting my interview with two students from the CEM program to offer you a chance to hear about their experience in the program. I sit down with Kat Morris and Cam Adams, two second-year students in the 2-year program, that give us a very detailed profile of their experience in the program.

If you are interested in the program, please click the link below for registration information:

https://nicholas.duke.edu/admissions/how-apply

You can also email the admissions office if you have a specific set of questions: admissions@nicholas.duke.edu

Would you consider doing a professional degree in Coastal Environmental Management? Let us know why in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

A listener reached out to me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I could bring someone on the show that has experience working internationally. It just so happens that I do have someone that fits that description and his name is Dr. Mark Tupper. 

Dr. Mark Tupper and I talk about what it's like to get a job abroad and what you should think about if you decide to follow the same path.

I am a little nervous today to publish this episode as it is the first time that I am part of a podcast where it is highly produced. I am a producer on a great podcast called the Salish Shes Podcast hosted by Raye Evrard and Beth Pike.  

We launched a series recently that explores how the Orcas of the Salish Seas became Endangered over a short time period (60 years). 

In this episode, Raye and Beth speak to Lynda Mapes (reporter from the Seattle Times) and Ellie Kinley (Lummi fisher and community member) to discover how the views of the people on the Orcas in the Salish Sea changed over the course of 60 years.

Members of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) met to discuss a number of marine topics for managing the Antarctic. Unfortunately, a Marine Protected Area that would protect 1 million square kilometres of the East Antarctic was not agreed upon because some member nations did not agree with the lack of a research monitoring plan (which is normally implemented after the designation of an MPA).

Listen to the episode for more information.

There are a number of countries that have either banned or plan to ban single-use plastics as their citizens are demanding that we stop adding plastic pollution to the Ocean. Consumers are also demanding that manufacturers create more options for less waste of their products such as refill stations; however, some manufacturers are not quite sure if their consumers are ready for refill stations based on attempts in the past. 

Listen to the episode for more details.

The MCHH crew (Dr. Craken and Dr. Smash) continue their St. Petersburg Science Festival Series by speaking with Denise Clem from NOAA about Sea Turtle Recovery and how it relates to the Shrimp Fishery in the Gulf of Mexico. 

The Shrimp fishery has been shown to trap Sea Turtles in their trawl nets in the past prompting scientists and fishers to work together to create Turtle Excluder Devices. 

Listen to the podcast for more information.
