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.
Okaloosa Darter fish The
Okaloosa Darter

may soon be removed from the federal endangered species list, thanks to improvements made to its habitat.

In Central Africa,
The Elephant Nose Fish "See" with their Chins.
Originating in Central Africa, Peters' Elephant Nose Fish, which has the scientific name Gnathonemus petersii, finds its bearings by means of weak electrical fields. Scientists from the University of Bonn have now been able to show how well this works. In complete darkness the animals can even distinguish the material of objects at a distance or dead organisms from living ones. The results have now been published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. The fish, which is as long as a cigar, hovers with its head inclined, close to the gravel-covered bed. While it swims forward slowly, its trunk-like elongated chin sweeps steadily from right to left, always at a distance of a few millimetres from the bottom. This way the fish behaves like treasure hunters searching for buried gold coins on the beach with their metal detector. Basically, this is precisely what the fish is doing. Hidden in the sediment there are large numbers of dead nematocera larvae waiting for it, its favourite food. Click here to read more.
At Eglin Air Force Base, Florida,

Okaloosa Darter may be taken off the Endangered List.

The Okaloosa darter has been on the Endangered Species Act list about as long as the federal law has existed, some 34 years. Efforts at Eglin Air Force Base to revive the darter’s dwindling population have been successful. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, as part of a recent status review, has recommended that the 1-to-2-inch fish with big eyes be down-listed from endangered to threatened. “It’s a huge step,” said wildlife service fishery biologist Bill Tate. After down-listing, the next move will be to remove the little fish from the Endangered Species Act list altogether, a goal now within reach. Click here to read more.
Near Albury, Australia,
The Aquanaut's Home Under the Sea
This past April, entrepreneur and science hobbyist Lloyd Godson awoke in the middle of the night with a pounding headache. He needed fresh air. Instead he drew in a deep breath and hoped that the algae blooms inside his 8-by-10-foot underwater home would give off enough oxygen to get him through the night. Because of steadily rising blood pressure, Godson, 29, emerged later that evening dizzy but healthy, bringing to a close his 13-day mission to live solo at the bottom of a lake near Albury, Australia. Funded by Australian Geographic magazine, Godson's effort was part science experiment, part educational outreach. As a marine biologist, he wanted to learn more about sustainable living in a closed ecological system. He fashioned the sub from mostly recycled scrap metal welded to keep water out. Inside, a "biocoil" full of water and algae helped to absorb carbon dioxide and supply oxygen [see "The BioSUB," below]. At the same time, he hoped to inspire future aquanauts by broadcasting live video to students worldwide. Click here to read more.
In Malawi, East Africa,
Fish Farms help families hit by AIDS.
Tiny fish farms have helped 1,200 poor families hit by AIDS in Malawi to raise their incomes and improve their diets in a scheme being expanded to other African nations, a report showed on Monday. About $90 can enable construction of a small rain-fed pond that can be stocked with juvenile fish costing $10. Once the fish grow and reproduce, the ponds produce food with far less back-breaking work than subsistence farming. The project, run by the Malaysia-based WorldFish Center and targeted at families where some members have died from AIDS or are suffering from the epidemic, has doubled income for 1,200 families in Malawi and improved diets, WorldFish said. Click here to read more.
On the Tye River in Virginia,
Removal of structure clears way for fish and boaters.
On one side of the Tye River, Juan Palomino’s track hammer pulverizes concrete in staccato pulses. On the other, Boogie Atkins’ track shovel moves loads of dam debris. Smack dab in the middle, Constantine “Conny” Roussos puts his canoe in the water. “I’ve been canoeing this river a long time and for 30 years we’ve had to carry our boats around this dam,” says Roussos, a 59-year-old avid river runner and computer science professor at Lynchburg College. “This time, I’m going to go through the middle of it.” That’s what the consortium of commonwealth agencies and local landowners bursting the dam want to hear. “It really serves no purpose anymore, other than to block the river, and the family that owns the dam decided that returning the river to a more natural state would be the best thing to do,” explains Alan Weaver, fish passage coordinator with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. “I think they understand that it’s a boating hazard and it would be better than keeping a dam that wasn’t in use.” Click here to read more.
In Texas,
New State law sets flow standards for River Systems.
Fed by heavy rains in the Hill Country, San Antonio Bay is flooded this summer with freshwater. Just last fall, though, the story was drought, which crimped the Guadalupe River's flow into this critter-rich bay estuary system 75 miles up the coast from Corpus Christi. "Droughts and flood are natural for the bay," Norman Boyd, a biologist for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, explained as dolphin frolicked behind him in the wake of a barge. "The gene pool has been pulled through these conditions for thousands of years," he said. "What you don't want to do is take so much water from the river that we change the averages that much." The challenge in managing Texas' rivers, Boyd said, is to avoid turning natural droughts into frequent, protracted events that change the mix of salt and fresh waters in the bay. That could decimate an ecosystem teeming with crabs, oysters, shrimp, fish and aquatic birds, including the endangered whooping crane. A bill aimed at maintaining these so-called environmental flows was signed into law last month. It's being praised by environmental groups as a groundbreaking step toward preserving the health and productivity of Texas waters. Click here to read more.
