Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Segment One. 
Fish in the News. Each week the Bailey Brothers start the Pet Fish Talk Show with some fun and interesting stories about fish in the news.
Freshwater Angelfish produced in the Arava area of Israel.

Go for the Gold . . . Fish.
Ornamental fish cultivation began about ten years ago in Arava, a desert area in southern Israel. At the initiative of the local Agricultural Research and Development Unit over the past five years, there has been a trend towards tropical fish farm development, including the establishment of new farms and expansion of others. Production in the Arava comes to some 800,000 fish, like the Freshwater Angelfish, shown above, per month, of which 99% are exported. The Arava area is now the dominant player in production and marketing of tropical fish in Israel, with an 85% market share. The number of breeders has increased from four to 15.

His Passion for Fish Set Aquarium Trend in Mangalore, India.
Even at the age of 78 and carrying the after effects of a paralytic attack, Rameshchandra Harway continues his passion for keeping and breeding fish. I was nostalgic as I stepped into the around 45-cent land of Harway which has a small house in the centre. A little Eden Garden that I called it, had neatly stacked aquariums with variety of fish. The garden, which once displayed an array of plants and several bee boxes, today has lost its charm. Harway’s ill-health has considerably reduced him partially confining him to the bed.
But his memory never fails him. “I was 16 when I came to Mangalore from Byndoor in 1947 and I met my guru Pailoor Lakshminarayan Rao. It was this great man who gave me some Guppies which I reared in a small bowl,” recalled Harway from his bed. Click here to read the whole story.
Australians Aim to Eradicate Guppies in Darwin Waterway.

The Northern Territory Fisheries Department has declared war on a small aquarium fish which is taking over a Darwin waterway. Fisheries staff are working to eradicate thousands of guppies which have been found at Fannie Bay's Racecourse Creek. They say the pests may have been dumped in the creek from someone's fish tank. Fisheries Minister Chris Natt says the guppies are competing with native species for food and habitat. "If they're left to run wild they overrun the native fish. There's also a case that they may have bacteria or germs within them and that would spread to the native fish and kill them, so it's important that we do get these fish out of the creek," Mr. Natt said. The Government has also begun an education campaign about the dangers of introducing non-native species to creeks and rivers. Mr. Natt says anyone releasing exotic fish into waterways can face fines of up to $20,000."We're just asking people to be very aware of not introducing these type of fish into the creeks," he said. "It's important that we keep our native fish in the creeks, it's their native habitat and we would like to see the native species survive." Click here to see the original story.

Researchers Design Prosthetic Tail for Injured Dolphin.
CLEARWATER, Florida The news from Indian River Lagoon was too familiar: another dolphin gravely injured because of human action. But marine scientist Steve McCulloch immediately saw this rescue was unique. The baby bottlenose dolphin lost her tail, but perhaps her life could be saved. McCulloch, director of dolphin and whale research at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, decided to channel his anger into a solution. The solution for the dolphin — dubbed Winter — may be a prosthetic tail. If the logistics can be worked out, Winter's prosthesis would be the first for a dolphin who lost its tail and the key joint that allows it to move in powerful up and down strokes.

Texas Man Catches Fish With Human-Like Teeth.
Fisherman Scott Curry reeled in the 20-pound fish on Buffalo Springs Lake and immediately noticed the catch had human-like teeth. A game warden photographed the fish and is attempting to identify it.  General Manager of Buffalo Springs Lake Greg Thornton told KLBK13-TV in Texas that he has never seen anything like the fish in the 36 years he has lived near the lake. A search for what the fish may be suggested that it may be a pacu, which is found in South America. Click here to read this story.
Humans Gills Inspired by Diving Beetles.
Our new newshound, Spenser, says, "I'm not so sure if this is directly related to fish. But maybe you can use it for news or something." By studying how beetles can trap air to keep from drowning, researchers suggest artificial gills that mimic such a trick could help people breathe underwater. Scientists in England investigated super-water-repellant surfaces. These possess infinitesimally tiny structures that rise like trees in a forest, on which water droplets rest. The structures trap air between the surface they jut up from and the water on top of them. Insects and spiders usually drown when submerged. However, aquatic insects such as the great diving beetle possess rigid hairs on their abdomen that repel water so much they create a silvery film of air that does not collapse. The silk nests of some ground-dwelling spiders and the eggshells of a number of insects also can develop these sheaths of air. Click here to read more. Thanks Spenser.
BREAKING WAVES: A Digest of Ocean News.

Scientists Protest Dolphin Slaughter.

Each September a months-long ritual starts up again in the Japanese villages of Taiji and Futo. Fishermen herd hundreds of dolphins into shallow bays by banging on partially submerged rods. Researchers say the dolphins are corralled into nets and then speared, hooked, hoisted by their tails, and finally eviscerated alive. A new consortium of scientists and wildlife officials today called on the Japanese government to end the practice. The “Act for Dolphins” campaign includes members from the New York Aquarium, Emory University, and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA). The group called the annual hunt "inhumane by any ethical standard" and said it "should be discontinued immediately." Click here to read this story.
