Female Molly Fish
Edinburgh University, Scotland, UK,
Some Female Mollies Reproduce without Males.
A female fish which hasn't had full sex for at least 70,000 years is baffling scientists. The Amazon Molly fish, shown above, defies evolutionary rules by reproducing without the help of a male Molly. In fact there aren't any male Molly fish and the female relies on a dalliance with males of other species. This triggers her reproductive cycle but she doesn't seem to use any of the sperm passed by her partner. And when her young are born they inherit only her genes and nothing from the male. Scientists at Edinburgh University have been studying the Molly in an effort to discover how the species has managed to survive. Click here to read more.
Gondwanan Climbing Fish
In Stokes Creek, New Zealand,
A Prehistoric Fish Species has been Found Alive.
Galaxias brevipinnis, also known as the Gondwanan Climbing Fish, was discovered on April 11 in the pristine Stokes Creek area. An expert on the species, Andrew Lo, shown above, and a team of volunteers located the fish in the upper reaches of the Georges River during a night expedition. "We had a grand-daddy, the one we took as a specimen which is about three years old, and three juveniles, indicating there was a variety of generations," Mr Lo said. "They have to go upstream to spawn so the fact that there were three juveniles in the small section we saw is a definite sign this is a viable population." The smooth-skinned fish dates back to the Gondwana land split. It is considered to be part of the "Gondwanan cargo" when New Zealand separated from the Australian land mass 50 million years ago. The fish has the capability of using its downward-facing pectoral fins in an armlike motion to move itself upstream over rock beds. They can survive out of water for extended periods and this adds to their hardiness because they have the ability to breathe through their skin. The fish has been found in the Upper Hunter and in Curl Curl Creek, which drains into Manly Dam in Sydney's North Shore. Click here to read more.
Chum Salmon Fry
In Bellingham, Washington,
BTC Seeks Funds for a New Fish Hatchery.
Earl Steele thought someone was playing a prank on him when all the chairs in his classroom at the fish hatchery on Whatcom Creek were repeatedly on the far side of the room when he arrived in the morning. Then he realized the law of gravity was pulling the prank — the computer chairs were rolling across a floor that had developed a slant because the building was sinking. A slanted second floor is only one of the structural problems plaguing the home of the Bellingham Technical College Fisheries Technology Program. A leaking roof, seismic instability, outdated electrical systems and inadequate program and storage space round out the list. Because of the dismal state of the building, the college is starting a $2 million fundraising campaign for a new facility at the hatchery. “At some point, we need to vacate the building because it’s not safe,” said Patricia McKeown, vice president of instruction at BTC. “In order for the program to survive, we need a new building.” If the college can raise the money by July 2009, it will receive $2 million in state matching funds to cover the full cost of the proposed project.

Releasing Trout in a Creek.
Saratoga Springs, New York,
Families Find Fun Stocking Trout in NY Creek.
Swimmy I and Swimmy II swam to freedom in the cool waters in Saratoga Spa State Park on Wednesday morning after being scooped out of a hatchery tanker into buckets. Quinn and Briggs Regan decided to name their brown trout while they stood in line, even though they’d only be with the fish for a minute or two. “Since nine o’clock this morning we’ve been preparing to come here,” said Kelly Regan of Saratoga Springs, the boys’ mom. Both Briggs, 6, and Quinn, 4, had released fish before, so they knew the drill. “We put fishies in the water,” Briggs explained while the trio waited in line with family friend Clarkie Logan, also of Saratoga Springs.

Black Drum Fish
Cape Coral, Florida,
Fish Making Sounds.
“Eerie Thumps Haunt Some Cape Residents,” a headline in The News-Press of Cape Coral, Fla., said. “Noise May Cost City Big Bucks.” It was the end of January 2005, during the spawning season for a fish appropriately called the black drum. Nightly mating calls were at a crescendo. But no one living in the area seemed to realize the din was of aquatic origin. The retirees who had come to spend their winters relaxing on the gentle estuaries and canals of the Gulf Coast in Florida blamed the municipal utility system. They were pushing the City Council to pay an engineering firm more than $47,000 to eliminate the noise reverberating through their homes. Then James Locascio, a doctoral student in marine science at the University of South Florida, rescued the city from financial folly. After reading the newspaper article, Mr. Locascio called a Council member just hours before a vote to appropriate the money. He explained that at 100 to 500 hertz, black drum mating calls travel at a low enough frequency and long enough wavelength to carry through sea walls, into the ground and through the construction of waterfront homes like the throbbing beat in a passing car.

The Living Sea
The Living Sea takes you to the world's oceans, traveling to Palau, Hawaii, California, Oregon, Alaska, Nova Scotia and the Red Sea. Explore the mysterious depths and come face to face with life-sized humpback whales when you dive into "The Living Sea." Swim with thousands of golden jellyfish and witness the bizarre spawning behavior of giant clams. Surf in Hawaii, deep-sea dive in Palau and test your courage with the Coast Guard in some of the world's roughest seas! Follow a remotely operated vehicle 3,000 feet down through the ocean depths to view strange creatures (one as long as a football field!) which live where sunlight never penetrates.

Hi guys, I heard you guys talking  on a recent show about videotaping one of the shows. I know it is unreasonable to put up the entire video, but I for one would like to see some of that video. Maybe edit out like a 5 min segment of that available on the website for download. I am sure I am not the only one that would like to see that. Here is a picture of me and my sister at a lighthouse on Kauai, and also a picture of poipu beach, and a picture of a morish idol that I saw at poipu beach, as well as our vacation house. Enjoy.
Poipu Beach, Hawaii.
A beautiful picture of a Moorish Idol taken at Poipu Beach, Hawaii, by Evan from Colorado.

Here is our house we rented. Note the 2 container ponds on either side of the entrance.
This is the little cabin in the jungle where I spent several nights! I hope I will be able to get through this Wednesday, Evan.
Thank you, Evan, for calling the show and describing your trip to Hawaii. The pictures are wonderful.
