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.
Sperm Whale   Sperm Whales  
are being electronically tagged to learn more about how they feed on  Jumbo Squids.
Jumbo Squid   Jumbo

are also being   electronically  tagged, so their behaviors can be studied at the same time.
  Celestial Pearl Danios, male above and female below, were first found in August 2006, and could now be nearing extinction.
  Submarine model that is being used to test an artificial lateral line like those found in fish.
In Port Elizabeth, South Africa,
Moorish Idols are now Abundant!
LARGE numbers of Moorish Idols, a colorful tropical fish, have congregated in rock pools west of Port Elizabeth, sparking debate about the reason for their arrival and whether it is linked to climate change. Aquarist Steve Warren said, "... about 30 were spotted in one gully alone ... I have introduced 54 new ones to our tank in the past two weeks.” ... Dramatically banded in yellow and black, it has a tubular snout and an elongated sickle-shaped crest extending from its dorsal fin, giving rise to its Latin name Zanclus cornutus, meaning crowned scythe. Moorish idols are popular aquarium fish but are notorious for their short aquarium lifespan. They need relatively big areas and plenty of algae, sponge and invertebrates to eat.

In Mexico
Squids and Sperm Whales tagged for study.

For the first time ever, researchers have electronically tagged sperm whales and jumbo squid swimming together off Mexico's Pacific Coast to learn more about how the giant creatures hunt and feed. It's probably the only time tracking devices have been applied simultaneously in the same waters to deep-diving predators and their prey. Click here to read the entire story.

In Myanmar
ewly Discovered Fish Faces Extinction.

Just months after the discovery of a colorful new aquarium fish in Southeast Asia, worldwide demand and intense exportation are already causing concern about the survival of the species. The Celestial Pearl Danio (Celestichthys margaritatus) was first found in August by a commercial aquarium-fish dealer near the town of Hopong in Myanmar (formerly Burma), which neighbors China and Thailand.

In the Philippines
Fish Collectors now use PDAs.
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) are currently helping ornamental fish collectors of San Francisco town in Camotes Island, Cebu and Hambongan Island off Inabanga, Bohol track their shipments of tropical fish. The gadgets also enable them to evaluate their packing and handling systems, So they can earn more from the colorful, sometimes minute, but delicate, marine fauna, that they collect.

In Monterrey, California,
A 32-mile long Underwater Cable.
In a project that could help usher in a new, cost-effective way to monitor the world's oceans, crews working with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, this weekend started to lay what amounts to a 32-mile-long extension cord that stretches from Moss Landing to a point nearly 3,000 feet deep in the middle of Monterey Bay. Known as the Monterey Accelerated Research System, or MARS Ocean Observatory, the $10 million project will allow scientists to plug in their underwater video cameras, rovers, earthquake-measuring devices, biology labs and other undersea equipment.

Washington, D.C.,
US Seeks to Allow Fish Farms in Deep Ocean Waters.
Hoping to grab a greater share of the 70 billion dollar aquaculture market, the Bush administration wants to allow ocean farming for shellfish, salmon and saltwater species in federal waters for the first time. A plan being announced Monday by Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez would let companies operate fish farms three miles to 200 miles offshore. The farms would not have to follow some of the rules on size, season and harvest methods that apply to other commercial fishermen. Fish farms already operate on inland and coastal waters as far as three miles into the ocean, which fall under state jurisdiction. Environmental concerns have arisen about wastewater generated by such operations. Gutierrez, however, says the administration's proposal has safeguards and would permit states to ban fish farming up to 12 miles off their coast. Click here for more.
In Illinois
Submarines Get Fish-like Sensors.
Thanks to a row of sensory organs along their sides, fish can avoid obstacles, swim in schools and seek prey, even in dark water. Now, inspired by those "lateral lines," researchers have developed an array of artificial sensors for underwater vehicles. Equipped with an artificial lateral line, a submarine or submersible robot could potentially move through the water like a fish, detecting targets and avoiding collisions. "We are trying to develop a new type of sensor for subs that can detect underwater events, currents and obstacles without conventional sonar and lights," said Chang Liu, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Te Papa, New Zeeland,
Fishing Vessel Catches largest Colossal Squid.
The colossal squid was caught by a New Zealand fishing vessel, owned by Sanford Ltd, in the Ross Sea in early February. It was carefully brought on board the vessel and frozen in the ship’s hold. Prior to its transfer to Te Papa, it was stored in Sanford’s Timaru depot. Click here to read more.
In the Pacific Ocean
How Sperm Whales hunt Jumbo Squid.

In the cold, dark abyss of the Pacific lurk thousands of Jumbo Squid, aggressive carnivores up to six feet long and 100 pounds nicknamed "red devils" by fishermen. Still, even these creatures can become prey to leviathans. The largest predators in the world, sperm whales, have a voracious appetite for squid, devouring perhaps 220 billion pounds a year or more, roughly equivalent to the entire annual harvest of all the commercial fisheries on Earth. Yet how sperm whales hunt jumbo squid has remained a mystery. Click here to read more.
