SUFB 1070: Fisheries Stories - Update On Nova Scotia Fishery Conflict And Discovering Shark Nursery Habitat Using Forensic Science
Two stories for this episode, both fisheries-related.
The first story is an update about the Nova Scotia Lobster Fishery conflict that has escalated over the past week. The Non-Indigenous Commercial fishermen are trying to stop the Indigenous Mi'kmaq community from exercising their right to legally fish for lobster. Check out episode 1068 to listen to more about the conflict.
Two incidences happened last week that you need to know about. Listen to find out what happened.
The second story is a cool example of how researchers have used forensic science to identify the types of elasmobranchs (sharks, skates, and rays) that are being caught in an artisanal fishery in Costa Rica. The results could prove to protect a hammerhead shark species during a critical time in their life cycle.
