In Bloomington, a Suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota,
Shark Attacks Shark at the Mall of America.
Shark attack in Minnesota? Who woulda thought? Fortunately, the victim was another shark, and that shark survived. But not before a tunnel full of aquarium visitors experienced a true, raw display of nature. Jessie, the nine foot, 300 pound sand tiger shark is the biggest shark in the Underwater Adventures Aquarium at the Mall of America. On Friday, she chomped down on a four and a half foot, 50 pound white tip reef shark. Workers used a pair of feeding tongs to grab the tail of the reef shark, pull and eventually free the little shark from Jessie's death-grip. The little shark then swam to the other end of the tank where a couple more workers yanked her out just in time. Experts say a bleeding, flailing fish like the reef shark would not have lasted a minute in a tank full of other sharks. "They key in on sick, weak and old animals and when there's one that's compromised, you never know what can happen," said Craig Atkins, the Animal Care Team Leader at Underwater Adventures. He continued: "In the case here it was the smallest shark in the exhibit, this is what happened after several months of no problems, all of a sudden there's a problem." Fortunately, the female reef shark will survive, albeit with scrapes and bite marks along her back. Her caregivers expect she'll need some time to recover. Meantime, they don't plan on returning her or the other white tipped reef sharks to the aquarium. Click here to read more.
Perch Fish
In the Mellewa Forest, New South Wales, Australia,
Life-Saving Water for a Rare Australian Fish.
A school of rare native fish, under threat from the drought will receive life-saving water today in a bid to save them from extinction. The Southern Pigmy Perch live in a creek in the Mellewa State Forest, near Deniliquin in south west NSW. The Murray-Darling Basin Commission and Forests NSW have started releasing a small amount of water into the creek, which has been monitored since last September. It significantly deteriorated after Christmas. Click here to read more.
Sturgeon Fish
In the Fraser River in Chilliwack, Canada,
Anglers hook 100-year-old Sturgeon.
Two British anglers waded waist deep into a river to land a 100-year-old monster fish weighing over 35 stone - after battling with it for over an hour. Nick Calleya, 36, from Cubert in Cornwall and George Carstairs from Scotland landed the 500lb white Sturgeon while angling from a boat in the Fraser River in British Columbia in Canada. The 10-ft-long giant was snared using a rod and line with salmon eggs as bait. Click here to read more.
Manta Ray
Just Offshore from New Jersey

5,000-pound Manta Ray Caught in 1934.

A GIANT Manta Devil Fish became entangled in the anchor and anchor rope of Captain A. L. Kahn’s fishing boat, while he was angling just off the shore of New Jersey in 1934, and almost capsized the heavy boat. A Coast Guard vessel came to the rescue, and killed the 5,000-pound monster Manta Birostris with 22 shots from a high-powered rifle. The sail-like fish has been mounted and placed on exhibition by Captain Kahn. An 18-inch baby Manta was born shortly after the mother fish was dragged ashore. These huge ray fish are seldom seen, since they live in the deepest parts of the sea. Click here to read more.
From Ghent University in Belgium
This Catfish Hunts on Land, Scientists Report.
An eel-like catfish can wriggle out of the water to stalk prey, scientists report. The discovery may shed light on how some prehistoric fish species evolved into land animals. Like many fish, the eel catfish is a typical suction feeder when it's in the water. It sucks in a mouthful of water—and prey. But on land the eel catfish uses a completely different method. The creature lifts the front part of its body and bends its head down toward the ground. This ability is essential to thriving on land ... Click here to read more.
At the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon,
Scientists are Breaking the Salmon Code.
The secret to salmon protection may be written in DNA codes. And according to Michael Banks, shown above, a geneticist with the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, scientists are well on their way to cracking that code for chinook salmon. At the Columbia Forum Thursday, Banks told a group of about 50 people in the Duncan Law Seafood Consumer Center about the role genetics could play in salmon fishery management and marketing. Banks is leading the genetics study for the Collaborative Research on Oregon Ocean Salmon (CROOS) project, which uses DNA to track individual stocks of chinook salmon in the ocean. Click here to read more.
