SeaWorld has been through a lot since the release of a documentary that exposed the truth behind marine mammal captivity. Blackfish was released in 2013 and caused SeaWorld to change its business practices surrounding Orcas; however, they were sued for allegedly downplaying the effect of Blackfish on their reporting to investors. 

They had to pay quite a bit of money but potentially got off without admitting to being guilty.  

Now, Seaworld is starting to earn money again after promoting free beer in Orlando and rides in California. They still have Orcas but they don't do shows nor do they profit off of the Orca reproduction business because it is now illegal. 

No Orca shows confirm that the best way to see Orcas is in the wild with a reputable Whale Watching outfit.

Another Throwback Wednesday is upon us. The 5th episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast was with Dr. Ellen Prager. She has pretty much accomplished everything of which most Marine Biologists can only dream. She's lectured, she's been the Executive Director of an Institute, she's authored papers, and she's authored novels for tweens. 

I was very happy to interview Ellen on all of her accomplishments, but I was super excited for her to talk about how coral reefs can benefit Human Health.

Check out the latest of Ellen's accomplishments at her website: http://ellenprager.com/

What other benefits do Coral Reefs provide? Share your answers in the Speak Up For  Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

The Turks And Caicos are overfishing their conchs and tourists are worried that they can't get their conch for dinner anymore. That was a bit sarcastic. 

Unfortunately, the demand for conchs outside of the beautiful Islands of the Turks and Caicos is driving the population to extinction and people are calling for an All-Out Ban on fishing for the once plentiful mollusc.

Link to the article: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-51285893

I am very happy to present to you Alex Tilley, who I interviewed in episode 4 about his organization called Talking Oceans. Much of our conversation covered the manner in which marine conservationists should approach helping local communities in foreign countries. We also discussed how Talking Oceans was approaching Science Communication.

I was able to catch up with Alex at the International Marine Conservation Congress in Malaysia a couple of years ago, where we chatted about his new endeavors and being a father living in East Bangor.

Talking Oceans Website: https://talking-oceans.org/

Enjoy the episode!

We know that Sea-Level Rise will reshape the world's coastlines physically, but it is rare that we see studies that predict how local communities will be reshaped from a socio-economic perspective. A recent study out of the University of Southern California did examine how inland counties and cities could be impacted by coastal migrants moving away from their flooded homes.

The Government Of Canada introduced the creation of a new Aquaculture Act, which is long overdue, that was to be introduced in 2025. I was very excited to hear the great news; however, some people are not satisfied with how long it's going to take. 

Episode Where I spoke about the Mandate Letter: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/speak-up-for-the-ocean-blue/id1010962669?i=1000459936009

So I decided to talk about why it takes so long.

What type of music do coral fish like? Well, a group of researchers from the University of Exeter found out recently. The researchers probably didn't play Stairway To Heaven to attract young juvenile fish to coral reefs; however, they did play the sounds of healthy reefs to attract young, vibrant fish to unhealthy reefs in hopes that it would activate something within the reef to start its way back to good health. 

The noise worked because fish came to the reefs more than they did to reefs where no noise was played. 

Listen to the episode to find out why, and find out what noises constitute a healthy reef.

Do you think the coral reefs will recover with the newly attracted young fish? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Marine Conservation is all about collaboration because collaboration leads to results. This episode presents a recent case where adaptive management, collaboration among government, research institutes, and citizen science groups show great results for a Nassau Grouper aggregation in Little Cayman. 

Find out how an aggregation site for Grouper spawning tripled in size within 10 years.

I continue to throwback to my first episodes as we approach the 1000 episode mark here on the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast. Dr. Craig McClain joined me to discuss his website, DeepSeaNews.com, how it runs and what was up with his most recent spike of readers on the website. 

If you haven't heard this episode, you will want to because it lays out how Science Communication should be done.

Our Seas Coalition has called for Scotland to ban trawling within 3 miles of the coast to ensure the sustainability of fisheries for the future. The Coalition is made up of various stakeholders including marine ecotourism firms, fishing communities, salmon conservationists and others. 

There are other fishing groups that oppose the ban as they feel the current system of voluntary closures and other measures will suffice.

Climate Change is destroying our planet and altering our Oceans. There is no doubt about it. We need to change the way we live and we need leadership from governments and corporations to help us change. 

One company is leading the charge to help us change the way we choose our food by providing carbon footprint labels on their products so you can see the impact your food has on the environment. Quorn is a company that makes meat alternative foods and wants to help its consumers make better choices in the food they choose to eat to protect the environment.

In keeping with the food theme for today's episode, I read another article on how one company is creating food in a lab from bacteria and water to offer a FarmFree experience.

Will these changes radicalize the food industry and save the planet? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

I'm taking you back to my first episode on the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast because we are less than 50 episodes away from hitting 1000 episodes.

In my first episode, I spoke to Dr. Judith Weis about her new book (at the time) entitled "Marine Pollution." It's a great book that breaks down marine pollution sources and effects on the environment in a digestible manner. 

Podcasters say that your first episode is your worst episode. Do you think the same? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://wwwspeakupforblue.com/group.

The Ocean influences the climate and when the Ocean changes in temperature, then the climate changes. Unfortunately, climate change is making the Australian wildfires worse to the point where the entire country seems to be on fire...and it's only going to get worse over the weekend. 

Listen to the podcast to find out how the Ocean is inducing the wildfires and what needs to happen to stop the extreme fires from happening again.

How do you think the Australian citizens should get the Prime Minister of Australia to take climate action? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Happy New Year!!! We are entering a new decade where environmental awareness is rising as we continue to observe our world changing due to many of the bad things that we have done to it. However, this is a time for hope as the conversation is moving from awareness to action to live for a better Ocean.

I talk to you about the direction that Speak Up For Blue will take in 2020. My focus will be on Action as an Online Community. Use the #SUFBAction for anything you do that makes you live for a better Ocean. 

You bring reusable containers to work/school - #SUFBAction

You use reusable bags instead of single-use plastic bags - #SUFBAction

Make a sustainable seafood choice - #SUFBAction

Post it on Twitter, Instagram and/or Snapchat and tag @speakupforblue so I can share it.

It's time for action in 2020!!!

Happy Conservation!
