Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
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.
In the United Kingdom
He Breeds Stingrays ... in his Living Room.
In crystal-clear water, they swim with ethereal grace ... a school of stingrays. But this is not the exotic reaches of the tropics - it is the living room of a house in Wigan. There, Neil Woodward has become the first man in the world to breed rare stingrays in captivity. Click here to read more.
In the Ocean Waters off Australia
Whale Sharks are Thriving.
Whale sharks, which grow to weigh as much as two or three adult elephants, are thriving in waters off Western Australia, a new study of underwater images suggests. Up to 65 feet long (20 meters), the whale shark, Rhincodon typus, is the world's largest living fish species — and also the largest shark. Though hefty, this shark is known as the "gentle giant" for its non-predatory behavior. Rather than tearing through meaty flesh of prey like many sharks, this fish, with its broad, flattened head and tiny teeth inside a giant mouth, eats tiny zooplankton, sieving them through a fine mesh of gill-rakers. Click here to read more.
In New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy
One of the World's Biggest Salmon Farms.
Twenty-two years ago he was fresh out of high school and hoping to find some sort of work to keep him in his tiny hometown of St. George on New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy. Today, along with his brother Michael and father Gifford, he runs the fifth-largest farmed salmon company in the world. The Cookes are obviously smart fellows, but Cooke Aquaculture would never have gotten so big, so fast, if salmon farming was an easy business to make money in. “You look at the salmon business and there’s been a lot of failures and a lot of money lost,” says Glenn Cooke. “We saw the need to grow, so as people wanted to leave the business, we’ve bought them. We’ve ended up buying a fair amount of bankrupt companies through the years and turning them around.” The Cookes started with one marine cage and 5,000 fish with help from a grant. Lots of these grants were being handed out at the time by governments desperate to create jobs in ravaged coastal communities like St. George. A lot of people in these start-ups were quite good at raising fish, hatching smolts or processing. But being good at production doesn’t guarantee profitability and so the Cookes got plenty of chances to put their philosophy that “opportunities are often disguised as problems” into practice.  Click here to read more.
In San Francisco
The Steinhardt will Close to Move.
How do you move 20 million fishes, fossils, ants, spiders, birds and beasts, plants and flowers - all examples of virtually everything that lives on land or sea - and move them from downtown San Francisco to a brand-new building in Golden Gate Park? "Very, very carefully," say the curators and collection managers of the California Academy of Sciences, who are about to start months of heavy lifting from the academy's temporary quarters at 875 Howard St. with as much delicacy as it takes to handle a single, fragile coral polyp or a 9-foot-tall stuffed Kodiak grizzly bear with arsenic in its fur. The academy's Howard Street museum and aquarium will stay open to the public through Sunday, but on Monday it will be closed as scientists begin their "great migration" - a project that will continue into October or beyond, whether or not the academy opens as planned that month. Click here to read more.

Sticklebacks Follow Prawns To Find Good Food.
A new study from the University of Leicester reveals that prawns can be used by fish species to find the best places to eat. Click here to read more.
In Israel
95% of Tropical Fish Production is Exported.
In the last half decade, Israel has become one of the top tropical fish exporters to the European Union, a development that boosted its economy. Israel is now counted among countries like China, Japan, and Singapore with the distinction of producing the best quality fish. Fish exporters from Israel has been exporting top quality fresh water fishes and marine life. Israel's sunny climate promotes fast and unified growing conditions for fish all year round. Consequently, Israel has adapted its famous agricultural expertise to growing high quality tropical fish. The EU community receives the exports warmly and welcomes more fish exports from Israel. Since joining the fish exporting industry, Israel has been slowly gaining a name for itself as a quality fish exporter. Some 60 fish farms operate in Israel exporting annually tropical fish valued at NIS 60 million. Click here to read more.
At the San Diego Zoo
Captive Breeding Eyed for Imperiled Wildlife.
Federal biologists planned for weeks to rescue a rainbow trout whose genes were considered among the purest in Southern California. They made visits to a remote canyon in the Cleveland National Forest. The researchers wanted to prevent the landlocked fish from being wiped out by debris that would flow into the canyon's pools when heavy rains hit the landscape, which had been charred by wildfires in October. They also aimed to breed a reserve population of the trout so they could repopulate river basins across the region. Click here to read more.
From Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon,

Insects may have Caused Dinosaurs Extinction.

Asteroid impacts or massive volcanic flows might have occurred around the time dinosaurs became extinct, but a new book argues that the mightiest creatures the world has ever known may have been brought down by a tiny, much less dramatic force – biting, disease-carrying insects. An important contributor to the demise of the dinosaurs, experts say, could have been the rise and evolution of insects, especially the slow-but-overwhelming threat posed by new disease carriers. And the evidence for this emerging threat has been captured in almost lifelike-detail – many types of insects preserved in amber that date to the time when dinosaurs disappeared. Click here to read more.
