In the Pacific Ocean
Bikini Corals Recover From Atomic Blast.
Half a century after the last earth-shattering atomic blast shook the Pacific atoll of Bikini, the corals are flourishing again. Some coral species, however, appear to be locally extinct. Click here to read more.
In London, England,
Rare Seahorses Found in River Thames.
There's something fishy in London, and it's not the city's trademark fish and chips. Short-Snouted seahorses have set up residence in the recovering River Thames, conservationists announced today. The fish—pictured above in the London Zoo aquarium—were found in recent surveys that assessed the health of the once heavily polluted river. The discovery of the animal in brackish tidal waters as far upriver as London was kept under wraps by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) until the species had been granted protected status. Little data are known about the seahorses' populations. Click here to read more.
Adelaide Hills, Australia,
Drought Refuge Sought for Endangered Fish.
A native fish feared to be near extinction will be put into temporary refuges in South Australia to help ensure its survival. The southern purple-spotted gudgeon has lost its natural habitat because of ongoing drought. Suzanne Keith from Waterfind Environment Fund hopes the fish will be able to breed in the refuges for release into the wild when the usual water flows return. She says sites in the Adelaide Hills are under consideration. "They're mostly related to the River Murray watershed where they naturally came from," she said. "We're looking at things like the water quality, the vegetation around the particular dam, absence of predators and competitors that could damage the fish. Click here to read more.
Port Lincoln, South Australia,
Deep-Sea Sharks Wired For Sound.
Deep-sea sharks have been tagged and tracked and their habitats precisely mapped in world-first research to test the conservation value of areas closed to commercial fishing.  Scientists from the CSIRO Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship recently fitted acoustic tags to 50 gulper sharks, swellsharks and green eye dogfish near Port Lincoln, South Australia. They will track the shark’s movements in a closed area designed to protect the gulper shark – a species which is severely depleted over much of its range and is nominated for protection under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. “Half of the fish harvested in Australia’s south-east fishery come from a thin belt of water along the south-eastern continental shelf at depths of 200-700 metres,” says CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship scientist, Dr Alan Williams. “This rich belt yields prime table fish such as blue eye trevalla and pink ling, but is also home to several shark species vulnerable to over-fishing. Click here to read more.
Along the Coast of California
State Regulators Ban Salmon Fishing.
State wildlife regulators voted to ban recreational salmon fishing off the California coast this year to protect declining chinook stocks in the Central Valley. Tuesday's unanimous vote by the Fish and Game Commission follows last week's decision by federal regulators to close the California coast and most of Oregon to commercial and sport salmon fishing. California regulators decided to ban salmon fishing in state waters extending three miles from shore after surveys found a near-record low number of chinook salmon returning to spawn in the Sacramento River and its tributaries last fall. The Fish and Game Commission has scheduled a May 9 meeting to consider whether to allow sport salmon fishing in California rivers this year. Click here to read more.
From the Czech Republic in Europe
Czechs Among World's Biggest Pet Fish Exporters.
The Czech Republic ranks among the world's three largest aquarium fish exporters, as Czech breeders estimate their exports of aquarium fish at Kc2-4bn annually, though the official data from the Czech Statistical Office (CSU) put the figure at Kc400m. Aquarium fish exports are several times higher than the traditional exports of carp, which has been bred in the Czech lands for hundreds of years, according to experts. According to CSU, the Czech Republic last year exported 240 tonnes of aquarium fish worth Kc406.4m, which was only Kc9m fewer that live carp exports. In the previous years, aquarium fish exports was, however, several dozen million of crowns higher than carp exports, the CSU data show. Czech aquarium fish is exported mainly to Germany, France, and Italy. Click here to learn more.
