Seaside Aquarium takes in a Distressed Ratfish.
Special thanks to Brandon from Arizona for the link to this story. The ratfish has a face only a mother could love. Out of respect, we won't catalog his many oddities here, but let's just say his eyes bulge, his face is chubby, and his long tail looks like that of a rat. This goofy-looking fish swims in a wide range of depths, from 40 to 3,000 feet. During the weekend, a ratfish found its way to a cove south of Seaside. A group of Portland schoolchildren tried to shoo him back into the Pacific, but he kept finding his way to the shore. So they scooped him up, put him in a bucket and brought him to the Seaside Aquarium. Click here to read more.
Fishing for Personalities
How an Aggression might Evolve.
Using mathematical model and computer simulations, the scientists assumed that a population of animals made specific reproductive choices; some chose to breed early and some set their early sights on acquiring territory. Their finding: the animals that opted to breed first tended to be bold and aggressive and more willing than their patient brethren to take risks, because they had already reproduced and therefore had less to lose. Their real estate savvy peers, on the other hand, were generally more timid, because they stood to lose more in a confrontation. Click here to read more.
In Contra Costa, California,
State Shuts Down Pumps to Protect Endangered Fish.
he California Department of Water Resources turned off the massive Delta pumps that deliver water to 25 million people on Thursday to protect a tiny fish that is plunging toward extinction. The move is not expected to trigger immediate water shortages, but is likely to cause reservoirs such as Lake Del Valle near Livermore to be drawn down sharply this summer. That could affect boating and fishing at the popular lake. State water officials say the shutdown is likely to be in place for seven to 10 days. Click here to read more.

The Georgia Aquarium Gets two New Whale Sharks.
Two large trucks with police escorts flashing their lights rumbled up to the world's largest aquarium early Friday with its newest residents - two whale sharks that had made an 8,000-mile journey from Taiwan. Veterinarians measured the new sharks and took blood samples before they were transferred by canvas harness from the trucks into their new home. The aquarium's other whale sharks, Norton, Alice and Trixie, circled nearby, seemingly curious about the newcomers. Click here to read more.
In Clovis, California,
Teacher brings Turtles, Fossils, and 37-years to Center.
Packing up his science classroom at Clovis High School will be no easy task for Conrad Bitters. Bitters is retiring after 37 years of teaching at the high school. His classroom is called Bitters' Museum and is stocked with five turtles, a rabbit, tropical fish, plants, an 85-pound clam shell, nests, skulls, deer antlers, fossils and feathers. Spanish moss and lichen hang from the ceiling. The brittle lichen will come back alive if placed in water, Bitters said. Click here to read more.
In Salinas, California,
New Sony Camcorder Records Underwater!
You can capture video of tropical fish swimming underwater with Sanyo's waterproof camcorder. Designed to withstand water down to 5 feet deep for up to an hour at a time, the Xacti E1 waterproof camcorder can capture 6-megapixel snapshots and 30 frames-per-second video with a resolution of 640-by-480 pixels above and under the water. It has a 5x optical zoom, a rotating 2.5-inch flip-out LCD screen and space for either a standard or high-capacity Secure Digital card. Available in blue, yellow and white, the camcorder will go on sale in June for $500. Click here to read more.
At McGill University in Montreal, Canada,
Color Patterns Spur Speciation in Tropical Fish.
McGill University researchers discover that coral reef fish color patterns are responsible for the emergence of new species. A team of researchers from McGill University and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute has provided the first example of how color patterns on a coral reef fish species can drive its evolution into many distinct species. Click here to read more.

Rare Opportunity to see Arapaima Feeding.
These monster freshwater fish were probably around 4 to 5 feet long and a foot or more across. You could barely see them cruising around most of the time, as their dark bodies blended in well with the algae-covered sides of the pond. But, every now and then, the sun would come out and you'd get a glimpse of the red markings on their rear ends. One of the guys ... came over and gave the fish some Koi pellets so we could take a look at them. The explosive power of the Arapaima, when they feed, is quite amazing ...  
Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Ripley's Aquarium Celebrates Birth of Six Stingrays.
The little stingrays, called pups, were born in the aquarium's stingray tank. Divers entered the tank to get the tiny critters away from the larger animals, some of which may have tried to eat them. With one diver in the water using a net to corral the pups and two outside the tank to catch them, the folks from the aquarium's husbandry department had the animals out of the tank within 20 minutes. "Right after birth is a critical time because the animals are particularly vulnerable at that time," Director of Husbandry Frank Bulman said. Click here to read more.
