Speak Up For The Ocean Blue raises awareness of the variety of ocean science and conservation projects conducted all around the world. It educates you, the listener, on the different Ocean Conservation Projects that are happening around the world. By listening to our guests, I hope to inspire you to live an ocean-friendly life through their stories and the information I provide to guide you towards a living a life that will be healthy for the Ocean. On the podcast episodes, I discuss, sharks, marine mammals (whales, dolphins, manatees, sea lions, seals), seabirds, fish (tuna, salmon, mackerel, cod, etc) as well as ocean issues like climate change/global warming (ocean acidification, increased sea temperatures, sea level rise, arctic melting, changing weather patterns), water pollution, plastic pollution (single-use plastic), coastal development, overfishing, whale hunting, fish poaching and more.

    SUFB 959: Sea-Level Rise Will Reshape The US Coastline And Increase Migration Inland

    We know that Sea-Level Rise will reshape the world's coastlines physically, but it is rare that we see studies that predict how local communities will be reshaped from a socio-economic perspective. A recent study out of the University of Southern California did examine how inland counties and cities could be impacted by coastal migrants moving away from their flooded homes.

    SUFB 958: How Government Regulations Are Made

    SUFB 958: How Government Regulations Are Made

    The Government Of Canada introduced the creation of a new Aquaculture Act, which is long overdue, that was to be introduced in 2025. I was very excited to hear the great news; however, some people are not satisfied with how long it's going to take.

    So I decided to talk about why it takes so long.

    My 3rd ever episode published on the Speak Up For Blue Podcast was with Dr. Richard Kirby, who developed the only Citizen Science Secchi Disk programs in the world. At the time, Richard was with the Plymouth Marine Lab, but now Richard is an independent scientist that does a lot of stuff.

    SUFB 956: Coral Fish Attracted To Healthy Coral Reef Sound

    SUFB 956: Coral Fish Attracted To Healthy Coral Reef Sound

    What type of music do coral fish like? Well, a group of researchers from the University of Exeter found out recently. The researchers probably didn't play Stairway To Heaven to attract young juvenile fish to coral reefs; however, they did play the sounds of healthy reefs to attract young, vibrant fish to unhealthy reefs in hopes that it would activate something within the reef to start its way back to good health. 
    The noise worked because fish came to the reefs more than they did to reefs where no noise was played. 
    Listen to the episode to find out why, and find out what noises constitute a healthy reef.
    Do you think the coral reefs will recover with the newly attracted young fish? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

    SUFB 955: Using Collaborative Efforts To Conserve Fisheries

    SUFB 955: Using Collaborative Efforts To Conserve Fisheries

    Marine Conservation is all about collaboration because collaboration leads to results. This episode presents a recent case where adaptive management, collaboration among government, research institutes, and citizen science groups show great results for a Nassau Grouper aggregation in Little Cayman. 
    Find out how an aggregation site for Grouper spawning tripled in size within 10 years.

    SUFB 954: Throwback To Episode 2 - Deep Sea News Busting Myths On Radiation In The Pacific

    I continue to throwback to my first episodes as we approach the 1000 episode mark here on the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast. Dr. Craig McClain joined me to discuss his website, DeepSeaNews.com, how it runs and what was up with his most recent spike of readers on the website. 
    If you haven't heard this episode, you will want to because it lays out how Science Communication should be done. 
    Have you come across news that was fake science news and wanted to bust the myth? Let us know in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
