Near San Diego, California,
Heather from Point Loma goes Whale Watching.
Hey Bailey Brothers, I stayed home this weekend and went whale watching. While the grey whales seemed to be taking the weekend off, we saw other interesting residents. Among them was a fin whale! Despite being the second largest animal on earth, the boat had a hard time keeping up with this fast moving whale. We were also lucky to spot two pods of Risso's dolphins which are a very large pelagic species.They traveled in pods of 10 to 20 which was much smaller than the common and whitesided dophins that we saw who traveled in pods that numbered into the hundreds. I've attached some of  the pictures (shown above).

Jakub Vágner Catching a huge Arapaima.
Jakub Vágner produces fishing films for Multisonic which are regularly broadcast by TV stations in the Czech Republic and abroad. His latest documentary is a film about the life and fishing in Thailand; more films about Asia and North America are being prepared. In September 2005 Jakub Vágner launched the broadcasting of a new project – the “Fishing with Jakub” TV program. He is the author, script writer, script editor and presenter of his own programs. Edited versions of these have been launched on 4 DVD and, thanks to their commercial success, they have obtained two Golden and Platinum Awards. The seventh DVD he has created is the ”Fishing Kindergarten with Jakub”, which is currently broadcast by the Czech state television ČT 1. He has organised several exhibitions of his author’s photographs. One of his exhibitions is being held in the most famous fish restaurant “Paukertova rybárna” on Národní třída in the very heart of Prague. Satellite TV channels Discovery and Spektrum have been showing interest in establishing cooperation with Jakub. Click here to read more.
Saltwater Cardinalfish
From Edinburgh University, Scotland,
Reef Fish Listen to Sounds to Find Their Homes.
Coral reef fish spend weeks scouting out a new neighbourhood before they move in - just like human house buyers do, Edinburgh scientists have revealed. The fish use their acute sense of hearing to eavesdrop on locations before deciding where to live. Edinburgh University researchers studied shoals of fish near the Great Barrier Reef off Australia. They found damselfish, cardinalfish (shown above, emperors, and blennies chose communities by the "reef noise" they give off. They then choose one based on their needs - in much the same way that a human would choose a new neighbourhood based on local schools or work commitments. Click here to read more.
White Shark
At the Monterey Bay Aquarium, California,
Freed Baby Shark Heads for the Border.
Shark enthusiasts are invited to keep track of a young white shark returned to the wild by the Monterey Bay Aquarium six weeks ago. So far, it has traveled past the southern tip of Baja California and is heading toward waters off the Mexican mainland, no passport required. The shark’s whereabouts are monitored by the electronic tracking tag it is carrying, which is delivering near real-time information on its position – information the public can track online, where his movements are updated and mapped almost on a daily basis. The male shark, released on February 5 after 162 days at the aquarium, is the first shark released from the Outer Bay exhibit to carry two different tracking tags. All three white sharks exhibited at the aquarium since 2004 have survived and thrived following their release. As with the two previous sharks, he carries one tag that logs where he travels, including the water temperatures and depths he favors. That tag is programmed to pop free on July 2, when it will transmit its stored data via Argos satellite to researchers at the aquarium and at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove. Stanford is the aquarium’s lead partner in the white shark research project. Click here to read more.
At MIT in Massachusetts
Shells Inspire Nano-Battery Research.
An MIT materials scientist's research on sea snails has helped transform battery technology and may end the era when cell phones die if they're dropped and PDAs must be replaced if they get dunked in the tub. Thanks to those sea snails and a eureka moment, Angela Belcher (shown above), Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Biological Engineering, is developing smart nano-materials--hybrids of organic and inorganic components - beginning with a rechargeable, biologically based battery that looks like plastic food wrap. Belcher's eureka moment occurred 10 years ago; it arose from her long, delighted fascination with abalone, the sea snail, and from her willingness to ask a wide-open question, "What if?" Click here to read more.
In Tulsa, Oklahoma,
Aquariums Can Teach Children Responsibility.
She doesn’t know it yet, but Alaina Molinar is about to learn a hard lesson. With the recent passing of Bubbles, her pet goldfish, she wants to set up a new aquarium. But there’s a trade-off. “When she starts cleaning her room a little bit,” her father, John Molinar, will think about getting his 9-year-old daughter a larger fish tank to keep on her own. Dropping into one of his favorite local fish stores, Molinar was with Alaina and 4-year-old Aven to buy supplies for the family’s larger saltwater aquarium. He’s been into the hobby “since I was their age,” he said. “I’ve done it forever. I’ve always enjoyed it, and I think it’s important to get them to understand a lot about responsibility ... and learn the importance of taking care of an animal,” he said. The children, wide-eyed at all of the eye-level creatures in the store’s well-maintained displays, can’t get enough. “It’s just really about developing responsibility, like cleaning your fish tank out,” Molinar said. “It also helps them understand the value in life of caring for a living creature.” Click here to read more.
University of the Basque Country
New Tool Determines the Age Of Anchovies.
Biologist Pablo Cermeño Villanueva defended his PhD thesis at the University of the Basque Country, providing a tool to determine the age of anchovies with greater accuracy on a monthly or even weekly basis, thus enabling studies of the earliest phases of life to be undertaken. The European anchovy  is a coastal pelagic species of great importance. Not only does it support an important fishing industry, but it is also fundamental in marine growth chains. The characteristics of this small fish are: a short life cycle, seasonal migrations, high growth rates, first reproduction at an early stage, a long egg-laying period and schooling behaviour. All this gives rise to considerable inter-annual fluctuations – given the variability of stock replacement by juvenile fish, these being highly vulnerable to environmental conditions. Click here to read more.
Callers during this Show
Mike from Wisconsin calls and says he got a Rainbow fish that has kind of lost its balance and is swimming at an odd angle.
Jay from Indiana calls and says he got a new 300-gallon horse watering trough that he will use in his fishroom. Tom and Nevin talk with Jay about the trough and his fishroom.
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk
