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.
Jurassic Crocodile   An artist's illustration
shows what the Jurassic-age crocodile may have looked like in the water.
Testing Fishy DNA   Leigh Andreason,
a senior at Filer High School in Filer, Idaho, quantifies DNA samples. Data produced by her advanced science class could help fish and game officers manage sturgeon populations in the Snake River.
Swim like a fish.   Swim like a fish:
a computer simulation of the swimming blimp in action (EMPA). See story below.
In Oregon
Crocodile-Creature with Fish Tail Unearthed.

An ancient sea-going crocodile has surfaced from the rocks of Crook County in eastern Oregon. Really. It's discovery by the North American Research Group, whose members were digging for Jurassic-age mollusks known as ammonites, is another confirmation that the Blue Mountains consist of rocks that traveled from somewhere in the Far East.

In Idaho
Students Dive Deep into Sturgeon DNA.
It's 8:30 on St. Valentine's Day morning, and students in the advanced science class at Filer High School are picking apart fish samples and analyzing the DNA. The tests should reveal something about the biodiversity of white sturgeon populations in the Snake River. Data collected by the class will be interpreted by University of Idaho scientists and then shared with Idaho Power Co. and state and federal resource agencies. Click here to read more.
In Dübendorf, Switzerland,
Blimp will Swim like a Fish.

Airship development may be at a turning point thanks to a new project at the Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research near Zurich. A blimp - a small airship - that moves through the air like a fish in water could be the successor to the Zeppelin, providing a quiet and energy-efficient means of transport.

In Bangalore, India,
New Medicines from
Cone Snails.
They might be known better for their exquisitely patterned shells, but cone snails are also some of the planet's most lethally venomous creatures. The slow, seemingly innocuous snail is in fact a highly sophisticated predator, which hunts fast-moving fish with its venom-coated harpoon, first stunning, paralyzing and finally killing the prey.  India has a vast resource of 100 to 200 species of cone-snails. The possible medical application of conotoxin (the neurotoxin in cone snail venom) is an area of growing interest for Indian scientists. It has potential as a painkiller and in the treatment of neurological conditions such as epilepsy and post-stroke brain damage. Click here to learn more.
In Mississippi
Pond Planning can Yield many more Fish.
Because of poor planning, bad construction, or a lack of management, many small bodies of water do not produce the amount of fish desired by the owner, or more importantly the owner's grandkids. A good pond or small lake depends on location, design, construction, the proper stocking rate and management, such as proper harvest, fertilization and weed control. Many times, ponds can produce five to 10 times more pounds of fish if proper techniques are followed. Click here for more details.
In North Carolina
Patent for Breakthrough in Fish Farming.
Shine Holdings, Inc. filed a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for what it calls a "landmark oxygenation process for the fish farming and aquaculture markets." The method utilizes superfine bubbles of oxygen to increase and then maintain Dissolved Oxygen content in water for fish farming. Click here to learn more.
In Alaska
Ketchikan Counts on Shellfish.
Construction is set to begin this summer on the Oceans Alaska Marine Science Center near Ketchikan. The new non profit was created last year when the state and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough donated 28 acres to build the facility, which aims to be the hub for building a global shellfish industry for Alaska shellfish. "Economic development is the primary thing. If we look at what the opportunities are in for year round, sustainable jobs in Southeast, Prince William Sound, the Kenai Peninsula and along the Aleutians, the shellfish industry is one of the best options we have. A focus will be on how we can help the industry grow," said project manager, John Sund. Click here to read more.
In New Zealand,
"How do you defrost a giant squid?"
The monster from the deep faces the ultimate indignity: being microwaved in the interests of science. The colossal squid landed by New Zealand fishermen last month is now officially the largest caught, after weighing in at 1,089lb (540kg), nearly 100lb heavier than initial estimates. But scientists itching to study it more closely face the challenge of how to thaw it out. The creature was frozen to preserve it during its journey from Antarctica to New Zealand's national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa, in the capital, Wellington. The problem with leaving the 33ft-long (10m) squid to defrost naturally at room temperature, experts say, is that the process would take so long - probably several days - that its outer tissue would rot while they waited for inner sections to thaw.

In South Africa
Fish Collection goes on display.
A storage facility housing the biggest collection of African fish on the continent was opened at Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape on Friday. The National Fish Collection stores nearly a million marine, estuarine and freshwater fish, including an unusual albino great white shark. "This is to serve primarily as a reference for scientists to study the identification and conservation of fish biodiversity," the Department of Science and Technology said in a statement.

In Australia
A Call to Ban Cruel Stainless Steel Fishhooks
An Australian Government conservation organization is asking fishermen to stop using stainless steel fishhooks, saying they are cruel. They also say the hooks cause unnecessary loss of marine life. Stainless steel hooks become a problem when fish break away from the line, leaving the hook stuck in their mouth. The hooks do not rust and often cause the fish to starve to death.
