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.
New Aquarium Pump
In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,
New Two Piece Magnetic Aquarium Pump
Chemical engineers developed a pump that splits into two pieces, a propeller for the interior of the aquarium and a motor for the exterior, connected across the glass wall by strong magnets. The magnet is made of neodymium, a strongly magnetic rare earth metal. The motor transmits torque through the magnet to the propeller inside the tanks, circulating water inside the aquarium. Click here to read more.
Marine Biology
In San Diego, California,
Marine Biology, at a Summer Camp
SARAH JONES’S first real sense of what it might be like to be a marine biologist came during summers at SeaCamp San Diego, a camp for middle-school and high-school students. It was there that her curiosity about the field evolved into an academic and career choice. Ms. Jones, 25, is about to begin a Ph.D. program in biological oceanography at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne. She wants to become a marine biology professor and to conduct research into seahorse conservation and preservation. The type of camp that inspired Ms. Jones as a teenager is gaining popularity, and is part of a larger trend toward environmental and science camps. About 50 camps, most of them near the ocean, now specialize in marine biology studies, according to the American Camp Association. That is an increase of about 25 percent since 1998. “Kids today want to tackle problems and be part of the solution,” said Peg Smith, executive director of the American Camp Association. “They want to actually be exploring tide pools and working in aquariums. They want to be experientially involved.”  Click here to read more.
Okinawa, Japan,
Baby Manta Born in the Churaumi Aquarium.
The baby is doing fine, thank you, and mom and dad are elated over the birth of a healthy manta ray. After a 366-day pregnancy, the mother manta ray gave birth Tuesday, only the second manta ray born in captivity. The same manta gave birth in June 2007, but that baby died when only six days old. Churaumi Aquarium staff say the first baby died after being chased into a wall by its father. Aquarium officials are taking no chances this go around, immediately moving the baby into a separate holding pond. The baby is reported healthy, with a width measuring 1.8 meters. Manta rays generally grown to more than 6.7 meters. The father manta is the longest living resident of an aquarium, going to the northern Okinawa aquarium after being caught in a fisherman’s net in 1992. The mother has been at Churaumi Aquarium since being trapped in fixed shore nets of a Yomitan fisherman in 1998. A Churaumi Aquarium spokesman says the staff is keeping a close eye on the baby, and promises “we’ll see how it works out. We hope to make the baby available to the public soon.” Click here to read more. Special thanks Jourdan for emailing us the link to this story.
In Des Moines, Iowa,
Big Fish Saved at Saylorville Lake.
Workers have rescued about 100 huge flathead catfish from a shallow pond at Saylorville Lake north of Des Moines. The fish were trapped below the emergency spillway when floodwater receded. Brandon Bergquest of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources helped wrestle the catfish to deeper water on Sunday. He said the fish were going to die from lack of oxygen, and they tried to save as many as they could. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials discovered thousands of fish stuck in the shallow pool that was cut off from the Des Moines River by a barrier of rock and asphalt. They notified the natural resources agency. The catfish, some which tipped the scales at 60 pounds, are valuable as breeding stock. Click here to read more.
