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.

located in Berlin, Germany,

In Berlin, Germany,
AquaDom, the World's Largest Cylindrical Aquarium.
Placed at the lobby of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Berlin, the 25 meters high AquaDom is the largest cylindrical aquarium ever built. Filled with about 900,000 liters of seawater, it contains some 2600 fish of 56 species. Guests and visitors are able to travel through the aquarium in a glass-enclosed elevator to reach a sightseeing point and restaurant under the glass roof. Two full-time divers are responsible for the care and feeding of the fish and maintenance of the aquarium. Click here to read more.
In China
The Extinction of the Yangtze River Dolphin is confirmed.
After an extensive six-week search scientists have confirmed the probable extinction of the Baiji or Yangtze river dolphin. The freshwater dolphin's extinction had been reported late last year. “The loss of such a unique and charismatic species is a shocking tragedy. The Yangtze River dolphin was a remarkable mammal that separated from all other species over twenty million years ago. This extinction represents the disappearance of a complete branch of the evolutionary tree of life and emphasizes that we have yet to take full responsibility in our role as guardians of the planet,” said Dr Sam Turvey of the Zoological Society of London. The Baiji population declined drastically in recent decades as China industrialized and made heavy use of the river for fishing, transportation, and hydroelectricity. The Baiji was last sighted in 2004. Efforts were made to conserve the species, but a late 2006 expedition failed to find any Baiji in the river. Organizers declared the Baiji "functionally extinct", which would make it the first aquatic mammal species to become extinct since the demise of the Japanese Sea Lion and the Caribbean Monk Seal in the 1950s. It would also be the first recorded extinction of a well-studied cetacean species (it is unclear if some previously extinct varieties were species or subspecies) to be directly attributable to human influence.

From the University of Florida,
The Conquest of Land Began in the Shark Genome.
Scientists at the University of Florida have identified genetic activity in sharks required for the development of hands, feet, fingers and toes in limbed animals. The finding shows what was thought to be a relatively recent evolutionary innovation existed eons earlier than previously believed, potentially providing insight for scientists seeking ways to cure human birth defects. When the first four-legged animals sprouted fingers and toes, they took an ancient genetic recipe and simply extended the cooking time, say University of Florida scientists writing in Wednesday's issue of the journal PLoS One. Even sharks -- which have existed for more than half a billion years -- have the recipe for fingers in their genetic cookbook -- not to eat them, but to grow them. Click here to read more.
At the University of California
Kenyan Fish joins fight against Malaria.
A native Kenyan fish could be used to help fight the spread of malaria, according to researchers. The study was published last week (9 August) in the journal BioMed Central Public Health. Lead researcher Francois Omlin of the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology, and colleagues from the US-based College of Health Sciences at the University of California, introduced Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) into several ponds containing mosquito larvae in the Kisii Central District of western Kenya. Nile tilapia is known to feed on mosquito larvae, but has not previously been tested in the field as a method of mosquito control. Fifteen weeks after the fish were introduced, the number of anopheline mosquito larvae in the ponds had decreased by more than 94 per cent, compared with a nearby control pond. Anopheline species are the main malaria-carrying mosquitoes in the region. The authors write that this is likely to reduce the number of adult anopheline mosquitoes in the area.

Why I eat like a Caveman.
(1) Rule of thumb: If you can't gather it from a bush or tree, or spear it, it's probably best not to eat it. (2) What you can eat: Lean meat and fish. Fresh fruit and vegetables. Eggs. Dried fruit (without added sugar or vegetable oil). Nuts and seeds. What you can't eat: Sugars, grains (no oats, wheat, barley or rye, etc), beans, peanuts (a bean not a nut) and starchy vegetables (such as potatoes). Dairy products. Click here to read more.
In Seaside, Oregon,
Male Pipe Fish becomes a Mother at Seaside Aquarium.
This is one fish tale with a bit of an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie twist. At the Seaside Aquarium, dozens of fish were born from what many will view as unlikely source: a male fish. The aquarium’s recently acquired stock of bay pipefish yielded a surprise when they discovered one of them was very pregnant – the male fish was, that is. Pipefish are long, rounded little creatures related to the sea horse, and it’s the males of the species who give birth. The pregnant male in the aquarium has so far given birth to at least 25 of the tiny, sliver-like creatures. Click here to read more.
In Auburn, Alabama,
Smarter Application improves Catfish Vaccine.
New vaccination processes could improve the efficiency and effectiveness of catfish vaccines, according to a study by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists in the agency's Aquatic Animal Health Research Unit, Auburn, Ala. Diseases like enteric septicemia and columnaris cost the U.S. catfish industry an estimated $50-70 million per year. ARS molecular biologist Craig Shoemaker, microbiologist Phillip Klesius and aquatic pathologist Joyce Evans invented two vaccines to immunize catfish against these diseases. The vaccines were patented and licensed to international vaccine manufacturer Intervet for distribution. Click here to read more.
In Indonesia,
The Hunt for a new Rainbow Fish Species.
On a river without a name in the depths of Indonesia's remote Papua, immersed to his waist in water and with mosquitoes swarming around his eyes, a French scientist manoevres a prototype electric pole through the current in a bid to stun some elusive rainbow fish. After ineptly shocking himself, Laurent Pouyaud chooses instead an old-fashioned net, which he nimbly deploys across the water. In two throws, it finally captures several Melanotaenia, a small and rare multicoloured fish indigenous to Australia and New Guinea. About 50 species have so far been discovered in the family, but many more are believed to navigate the rivers of this rarely traversed territory on the island of Waigeo, at the end of the Bird's Head Peninsula in Papua. Pouyaud's catch are the first species found by his three-man Franco-Indonesian team, who are on a five-week expedition to document as yet unrecorded species of the splendid freshwater rainbow fish.
