4:34 AM | RV Investigator scientific sea trial video!
Originally posted on Investigator @ CSIRO:A few months ago one of RV Investigator’s crew members had the brilliant idea of grabbing his drone before jumping on board for the scientific sea trials. Then, some of the Marine National Facility support staff got creative with a GoPro and captured on board images and some action shots of equipment being deployed. The…

3:53 AM | Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine is a fake documentary
Shark Week has done it again with their Shark of Darkness nonsense.  This show goes after everyone, from the whale watching industry, to shark cage diving, to South Africa as a country, and literally broke my heart to watch. The fake-u-mentary is supposedly based in Hout Bay, but continually shows a map of Dyer Island and […]

12:54 AM | #5: A Successful Second Survey
On Friday, we left the dock around 6:45 AM, eager to see what our second survey would hold. Not too far in to our tracklines, the dark clouds that seemed so far away decided to let a few raindrops loose on us. The worst of the weather ended up on land, where folks experienced a severe storm. Lightning even struck not too far from our field station in Lubec! Quatro at the

3:00 PM | The Superiority Complex
“The marlin I just caught was an infant by comparison with the great fish, only 120 pounds and about four years old, but it is not the size that matters here… What matters is that the fish are proof that the wonders of the sea are not only real, but tangible. Through the shivering line […]

8:11 AM | New shellfish reefs to be planted in Victorian bay
Dredging and bottom trawling of Port Phillip Bay in Victoria have destroyed most of the natural shellfish reefs in the 230 years since European settlement of Australia. This new plan reported in the Age newspaper last week will help to restore shellfish reefs in the bay with the aim of increasing habitat for flathead, snapper and other […]

11:26 AM | One out of every six dolphins in The Bahamas has been bitten by a shark
According to a recent study, one out of every six dolphins that live off of the island of Bimini in The Bahamas is sporting some kind of scar from a failed shark predation attempt. Scientists were able to recognize the scars on these Atlantic spotted dolphins as shark bites due to their telltale crescent shape. [&hellip

4:26 AM | Fin-Body Ratios for Smooth Dogfish – Depends on How You Slice It
The 2010 Shark Conservation Act prohibits removal of fins at sea for all sharks landed in U.S. Waters, with a glaring exception for smooth dogfish, or smoothhound sharks.  In an effort to ensure that fishermen aren’t performing the cruel practice of throwing a still-living but finless shark overboard, a fin:body ratio of 12% for smooth […]

1:11 AM | #4: Whales, Brownies and Poop
This morning we left the dock around 7:15 AM, slightly later than usual to avoid any lingering fog. We were all thrilled to finally get back on the water, but encountering some of our favorite things made the day even more amazing. Around 9:30 AM, we photographed our first right whale! Everywhere we looked, there were right whales. Typically when we hang in one area for a while, we start
