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.
Giant Ocean Sunfish Ocean Sunfish,
the largest bony fish in the world, can grow to be more than 11 feet long and weigh over 5000 lbs.
Jumping Manta Ray Manta Rays
are often seen jumping out of the water, as high as 2 feet, and then returning to the sea.
Breeding Clown Anemone Fish Nha Trang  Oceanography Institute in Viet Nam has artificially produced nearly 4,000 Clown Anemone Fish so far this year.
Cleaner Shrimps Cleaner Shrimps
are the stars of the domestic ocean, that Anne Lindenfeld's has helped oversee, since her husband's aquarium interest deepened.
Salmon Jumping in the Klamath River This Bridge
over the Klamath River leads to the Iron Gate Fish Hatchery, where the Salmon are now jumping.
Taimen, a mega-fish from Mongolia. Taimen,
a giant member of the salmon family, held by biologist Zeb Hogan, who searches for mega-fishes in Mongolia.
Calerpa, the killer aquatic week. Calerpa,
the illegal aquarium plant, previously discovered in Carlsbad and Huntington Harbor, is capable of growing up to one-half inch per day, forming a dense underwater carpet over rock, sand, and mud.
In the Oceans of the World
Pictures and Videos of the Ocean Sunfish
The Ocean Sunfish (mola mola) is the largest bony fish in the world. It is a unique pelagic fish, and specimens of ocean sunfish have been observed up to 3.3 m (11 ft) in length and weighing up to 2,300 kg (5,100 lb). Curiously, the Ocean Sunfish has a very small brain compared to its size: A 200 kg specimen may have a brain the size of a nut weighing only 4 g. It would explain their quiet behavior and how often they get trapped into fisher nets. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Robert in New Jersey for the link to this story.
In the Oceans of the World
The Amazing Flights of Manta Rays
According to several researchers, manta rays are often seen jumping out of the water, as high as 2 feet, and then returning to the sea. Scientists are not sure why this jump takes place - it is just one of the many things yet to discover about the manta. They may do it to escape a potential predator, as part of a courtship display, or to rid themselves of skin parasites. Nobody knows. It could even be a kind of play. Click here to read more. Special thanks again to Robert in New Jersey for the link to this story.
From the Washington Post in Washington, D.C.,
Hubby Was Acting Fishy, Now Everyone's Hooked.
I have three pet shrimps, but it wasn't always that way. My shrimps represent an important area not covered in today's marriage self-help culture -- Spousal Hobby Creep Syndrome. This is defined as the persistent and progressive absorption of one spouse by the other spouse's hobby. I've studied up on current psychological sources (watched a bunch of movies) but found little guidance there. While Hollywood solves most relationship problems through a therapeutic process that consists mostly of characters declaring their love in a rainstorm (and why is that?), directors and producers would do us a big favor by covering the hobby thing. If they had, I might have known that falling in love and getting married would mean ending up with a small ocean in my living room. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Peter H. for emailing us the link to this story. Click here to go to Peter's Aquarium.
In Mongolia
The Taimen, a Giant Member of the Salmon Family
The Megafishes Project, the first effort to document, study, and protect the world's largest freshwater fish. The project aims to improve conservation of mega-fishes—species that grow to at least six feet (two meters) and weigh more than 200 pounds (90 kilograms). They include the mammoth Taimen, catfish the size of bears, and half-ton river stingrays. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Brian for the link to this story.
In Viet Nam
Oceanography Institute produces Clown Anemone Fish.

So far this year, the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute has artificially produced nearly 4,000 clown anemone fish (Amphiprion percula). Some 3,000 fishes have been released into the sea and the rest exported to France. Dr. Ha Le Thi Loc from the institute’s Aquacultural Technology Department revealed the above information. This species of fish lives in coral reefs in tropical seas and they live in symbiosis with sea-anemones. Vietnam currently has ten varieties of clownfish. Click here to read more.

In the Klamath River, California,
The Salmon are Really Jumping Good !
If you were a salmon struggling against the current in the Klamath River right now, you'd probably be heading to California's Iron Gate Fish Hatchery. Built in 1966, near Hornbrook, the hatchery is 190 miles from the ocean and just downstream from Pacific Power's Iron Gate Dam. If you go drive south, 8.5 miles into California on Interstate 5. Exit at the Henley/Hornbrook turnoff, Exit 789. Turn left and continue east for 8 miles on Copco Road, following hatchery directional signs. When you reach the dam, the hatchery is on your right, across a white bridge over the Klamath River. The best time to see the fish running is in September," said Dan Espinosa, a 13-year veteran of the hatchery. "They start trickling in during August, so, that's when we get most of our visitors." He said that by mid-September, "The salmon are really jumping pretty good." Click here to read more.
In Chicago, Illinois,
Teenager gets Fellowship at the Shedd Aquarium. 
A local teenager got the chance of a lifetime to go behind the scenes at the Shedd Aquarium this summer. It's a good lesson for other young aspiring marine biologists who might want to do the same. Walking through the Shedd for Matt Basile is sort of like strolling through a second home. At only 18, Matt has already worked at Shedd, one of the nation's premier aquariums, for more than three years. It all started with the Shedd's High School Marine Biology Program, which Basile said he "stumbled upon" while looking at the aquarium's website. It was a perfect opportunity for a kid who's been rescuing and collecting little creatures since kindergarten. Basile said he even "rescued an alligator one time." Click here to read more.
In Mexico
Saving the Axolotl 
In the ancient canals of Xochimilco on Mexico City’s edge, the wild axolotl is losing a struggle to survive against the tide of urbanization. Mexican scientists, international conservationists and local boatmen are hoping a new project can save this unique amphibian from dying out in its last remaining natural habitat, and in the process restore a unique ecosystem in one of the world’s largest metropolises, home to 20 million people. The Mexican axolotl — endemic to the high volcanic basin settled six centuries ago by the Aztecs — is an aquatic salamander, resembling an overgrown tadpole with ruffled gills. The axolotl never fully metamorphoses from the larval stage to live on land like other amphibians; it reaches maturity and remains aquatic. Celebrated by Latin American writers and Mexican muralists, it takes its Nahuatl name from the Aztec God Xolotl, who often appeared in legend as a dog or monster. Click here to read more.
In Carlsbad and in Huntington Harbor,
'Killer Algae' Still a Threat to Southern California Waters.
In Europe, they call the extremely invasive saltwater plant Caulerpa taxifolia "killer algae." It has infested tens of thousands of undersea acres in the Mediterranean and in Australia - and closer to home, it has been found in Southern California's Agua Hedionda Lagoon in Carlsbad and in Huntington Harbour. While initial California infestations are thought to have been successfully eradicated, a serious threat to local waters still exists, according to marine biologists. If just one quarter-inch fragment of this saltwater aquarium plant finds its way to the ocean via a storm drain, it can turn into a colony of many acres - choking out eelgrass and other native species and endangering fish and wildlife. Click here to read more.
