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.
From the University of Washington
When I grow up I want to be an Oceanographer.
Youre in the tropical South Pacific swimming with dozens of dolphins in cerulean waters sparkling in the suns 90-degree heat. No, this isnt a luxury vacation; this is your full-time job as a marine scientist. From large marine mammals to the smallest species of plankton, from freshwater marshes to the deepest depths of the ocean, fisheries scientists and oceanographers study all aspects of the marine environment. Research, more often than not, requires scientists to be on location to collect data, so most scientists go to sea or otherwise do field research at least once in their careers. Its an environmental science, so it combines a lot of different aspects: environmental awareness with science with the adventure aspect, said Evelyn Lessard, pictured above, biological oceanographer and associate professor in the UW School of Oceanography. While marine scientists working at the UW are often employed in the duties of teaching students and writing papers, they are by no means confined to their offices for the duration of their careers. I worked in this beautiful field station in north Wisconsin, said Tim Essington, shown in the second picture above, marine biologist and aquatic and fishery science assistant professor. A lot of people were paying money to stay in similar environments, and this was my job. Click here to read more.
From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Grant will help Teacher with Real-Life Lesson.
Christian Shane and his second-graders are swimming with excitement. Shane, a teacher at McKnight Elementary, is one of 13 Pennsylvania teachers who were awarded grants from the state Council of Trout Unlimited through its "Trout in the Classroom Program," which lets students grow and study the fish throughout the school year and release them in the spring. The first thing Shane did when he found out about receiving the grant was, "I called all my fishing buddies," he said with a smile. Shane is an active fly fisherman and thinks his students can learn a lot from the program. Click here to read more.

1000th Whale Shark Entered in Data Base.
The 1,000th whale shark, a rare and threatened species, has been discovered by researchers using a global programme in which eco-tourists and scientists identify new sharks and lodge photographs on an online library. "It's a major milestone, for science and for conservation," said ECOCEAN project leader Brad Norman in Australia. "It was achieved with the help of ordinary people worldwide who want to study and protect this wonderful creature," Norman told Reuters on Thursday from Perth in Western Australia. The whale shark is the world's largest fish, a slow-moving filter feeder that can grow to around 12 metres (40 feet) and weigh up to 21 tonnes. But it is difficult to study, remaining in deep ocean for months and only rarely rising towards the surface. ECOCEAN tracks individual whale sharks around the world's oceans using a Web-based photo-ID library ( which catalogues each whale's unique spots. Click here to read more.
Study Finds Fish have Personality.
Fish have personalities. Ordinary Canadian brook trout exhibit different traits: some social, others not. Some risk-takers, others scaredy-fish. And so on. University of Guelph scientists noticed the different personalities as they sat by the Credit River, west of Toronto, watching trout feed. Then they scooped out the fish and ran them through six days of personality tests in the lab, and even some swimming tests. And the revelation suggests an answer to an old question: How can different species, with different types of behaviour, evolve from a single starting point? Click here to read more.

Aquariums on Ferry Boat to be Finished Soon.
It's no fish tale -- the two tarp-covered eyesores in the middle of the St. George Ferry Terminal waiting room will each finally be filled with 1,400 gallons of water and 200 tropical fish. With any luck, the transformation will occur in time for Christmas. The 8-foot-tall tanks were installed at the end of July, and it was expected they'd be full of fish by last month. Now, months later, the empty boxes remain under wraps and surrounded by ugly sawhorses. Part of the long wait was due to a nearly month-long curing process to ensure that the silicone adhesive sealing the 3-inch-thick acrylic walls of the tanks had dried completely. "Sometimes the devil is in the details," explained Borough President James P. Molinaro, who funded the tanks with $750,000 from his capital program. He allowed as to how he's "a little disappointed" that the process is taking so long, but he realizes the wait is necessary to "make sure it's done correctly." Click here to read more.
From in New Zealand  
Squid Gel Key to Surgical Glue.

Scientists at Otago University have revealed how a sea creature that often ends up on our plates has provided the key ingredient for a medical gel. The gel extracted from squid, shown above, helps control scarring and bleeding. This can be used during different types of surgery, especially tricky operations through the nose such as sinus operations. Around a third of sinus operations have to be repeated because bleeding and scarring cause adhesions that block the sinuses again. So Professor Brian Robinson and colleagues at Otago turned to the sea and the squid to find an answer to the reoccurring problem. They discovered a way of creating a water soluble gel out of an extract from squid. "The first thing we tried had the required biological properties. We didn't know but we were just lucky it did," says Professor Robinson. Like a commercial glue, two ingredients are mixed at the last moment and then squirted over the surgical wounds. "It stops the formation of adhesions and blood clots and it stays in place for about a week and then it naturally dissolves," Professor Robinson adds. Click here to read more.
