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.
Female Hammerhead Shark.   A Female Shark,
like this Hammerhead, can fertilize her own eggs and give birth without sperm from a male shark.
Coelacanth Fish. A Coelacanth,
an ancient fish once thought to have become extinct at the time of the dinosaurs, floats in a quarantine pool, after being caught in the sea near Indonesia.
Genicanthus bellus, a medium size Angelfish. Genicanthus bellus
is a medium sized saltwater Angelfish that is normally found in extremely deep waters, but was observed in shallow waters in Cenderawasih Bay.
A Baby Zebra Shark
that recently hatched from an egg at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia.
At the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska,
A Female Shark Fertilizes her own Eggs.
Researchers analyzed the DNA of a shark born in 2001 in the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska. The shark was born in a tank with three potential mothers, none of whom had contact with a male hammerhead for at least three years. Before the study, many shark experts had presumed that the Nebraska birth involved a female shark's well-documented ability to store sperm for a lengthy period of time. Doing this for six months is common, while three years would be exceptional, they agreed. But analysis of the baby shark's DNA found no trace of any chromosomal contribution from a male partner.

An Indonesian Fisherman catches a Coelacanth.
An Indonesian fisherman has caught a coelacanth, an ancient fish once thought to have become extinct at the time of the dinosaurs, a fishery expert said on Monday. Click here to read more.
Off the coast of Indonesia's Papua Province
Bird's Head Seascape is Richest Ecosystem on Earth.
Not far from the Foja Mountains, where a team recently discovered a "lost world" of rare plants and animals, another expedition has found a new trove of extraordinary marine biodiversity in a region known as the Bird's Head Seascape, off the coast of Indonesia's Papua Province.

In Atlanta, Georgia,
Two Baby Zebra Sharks hatch in the Georgia Aquarium.
The Georgia Aquarium introduced its newest hatchlings on Tuesday -- a pair of zebra shark pups that are the first to hatch from about 13 zebra shark egg pods. A female zebra shark hatched on March 30 and the male followed on April 5. The pups are being kept in a special tank on the upper level of the Aquarium. They are being fed three times a day and handlers note they have healthy appetites. The newborn sharks are the first of several viable egg cases that were laid by a female shark in the Ocean Voyager exhibit late last year. It takes about six to nine months for the pups to hatch and, when they are born, the markings give them their names. Click here to read more.

School Teachers asked To Help the Georgia Aquarium.
The new Education Director at the Georgia Aquarium, Al George, wants teachers to help shape what students can learn at the facility. "What I would love to do is for a teacher to challenge us," he said. Right now, the Georgia Aquarium accommodates about 300 students for field trips in both the mornings and again in the afternoons. But George would like to see more students. He would also like teachers who go beyond the shallow end of thinking of how to best use the aquarium with the curriculum. "We've only scratched the surface," George said. Click here to read more.
In the U.S. and Australia
Scientists plan to Fight Global Warming with Plankton.
ONE of the Earth's major natural barriers to global warming could be strengthened by the first commercial venture to grow vast plankton blooms. US eco-restoration firm Planktos intends to drop tonnes of powdered iron into the Pacific in a two-year project which aims to induce the growth of plankton. Some scientists believe the iron seeding technique will help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere after research published on Friday showed that atmospheric carbon dioxide is no longer being absorbed by the Southern Ocean at the rate it used to be.

In Nyssa, Oregon,
Local Future Farmers of America sells Homegrown Fish.
In the second week of September, Chad Cruickshank, agricultural teacher at Nyssa High School, ordered 300 tilapia, a common name used for a variety of cichlid fish. “The fish were sent overnight and only weighed about 1 or 2 grams,” Cruickshank said. When the fish arrived, students from his Wildlife and Natural Resources, Advance Agricultural Leadership Class, began caring for the fish. “This is a lot of hands on,” he said. The students were in charge of giving the fish a clean habitat, feeding the fish and maintaining a proper pH level in the water. To date the Nyssa Future Farmers of America chapter has delivered 60 pounds of tilapia to the Red Apple grocery store, and Cruickshank said he has about 40 more pounds to deliver. “As soon as I deliver the fish, Red Apple has them packaged and on the shelf,” he said. “The sell out within 24 hours.” Click here to read more.

In the Chesapeake Bay
The Hydrilla Plant Benefits the Ecosystem.
The robust exotic Hydrilla first appeared and began to flourish in the fresh water reaches of the tidal Potomac River just as management investments to reduce nutrient loads from sewage treatment plants were beginning to take effect. Submerged aquatic vegetation is an important ecosystem resource for fish and waterfowl and it was feared that the expansion of Hydrilla would impair the reemergence of native species, but this has not proven to be the case. Click here to read more.

What is the Most Popular Pet?
In the list of America’s most popular pets, freshwater fish hold third place behind cats and dogs, but when the actual number of pets owned is counted, freshwater fish blow away the competition — 139 million are being fed or stared at right now, as opposed to about 90 million cats and nearly 74 million dogs. Click here to read more.
In Beverly Hills, California,
He Always Wanted a Big Aquarium !
So when Nathan Hochman, a 43-year-old attorney, moved his family into a gated Beverly Hills community, one of the first things he did was install a 370-gallon, see-through tropical saltwater aquarium. "We could have bought a piece of art and put it there, but this is better," he said. "This is a living piece of art." Lionfish, dogface puffers and an orange-and-white striped clownfish named Nemo are a few of the subjects now frolicking in the watery "art" work for which Hochman shelled out tens of thousands of dollars. And he's not alone. Click here to read more.
