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 1008: 10 Ocean Places To Protect Biodiversity

    The PEW Charitable Trust put out an article describing 10 of the highest biodiversity hot spots in the Ocean that we should protect. I describe why they are so important and what common characteristics in the Ocean give way to such highly diverse Ocean Areas.

    SUFB 1007: Indonesia Tries To Protect Citizens From Becoming Fisheries Slaves

    SUFB 1007: Indonesia Tries To Protect Citizens From Becoming Fisheries Slaves

    There is a huge problem within the International Fisheries industry and that is the rampant use of Fisheries Slaves. Fisheries slaves are often recruited by companies to go on distant-bound vessels who overwork their crew, underfeed them, and throw them overboard when they die or are close to dying due to inhumane working conditions. 
    The Indonesian government might institute a ban on their citizens working on international fishing vessels to protect them and work with the recruitment companies to ensure they work with the proper companies.

    SUFB 1006: In Search Of Deep Sea Squid With Dr. Nathan Robinson

    Imagine being a part of a research cruise where the team captures footage of a live deep-sea squid for only the second time EVER?!
    That's what my guest today can say that he did. Dr. Nathan Robinson is back on the podcast to discuss his joint venture with Dr. Edith Widder to develop a video camera that will be able to capture more footage of deep-sea squid in their natural habitat. 
    They are crowd-funding the project so that you can be a part of history and help build a camera that will attract and capture footage of one of the most elusive animals on the planet.

    SUFB 1005: In The Name Of Conservation

    SUFB 1005: In The Name Of Conservation

    There was a great article in Hakai Magazine about the ethics involving wildlife photography and videography. It covers people like Daniel Dietrich, who abides by ethical guidelines to protect nature and Ocean Ramsey, who doesn't do such a great job. 
    I had thoughts on it so I created an episode around the topic.

    SUFB 1004: Antarctic Benthos Lost Abundance Over Past 30 years

    SUFB 1004: Antarctic Benthos Lost Abundance Over Past 30 years

    Today's episode takes us down to the Antarctic waters of the Weddell Sea, where a recent study revealed a loss in benthos abundance occurred over the past 30 years...and not because of the reasons that you think. 
    Link To Article: https://www.awi.de/en/about-us/service/press/press-release/benthos-in-the-antarctic-weddell-sea-in-decline.html
    Do you think the benthos will increase since the rapid decrease of the sea ice over the past 6 years? Share your hypothesis in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Transformational!

Podcasts like this show are what give me hope for the future as someone who feels the weight of our planet's environmental clock ticking away. Absolutely incredible. The guests that Andrew brings on for interviews are intelligent, entertaining and insightful - making topics that could be potentially easy to ignore engaging to dive into! Highly recommend subscribing and making this one of your go-to shows. Thank you Andrew and team Blue!

I think this is absolutely great

I'm studying in the field of the law of the sea, and pay more attention to the legislation of BBNJ. Checking all podcasts related to the ocean and suddenly i found one episode including guest Diva Amon. Suprised to notice scholars both in biology or law field has the same suspicion about the deep seabed mining. And that episode is abosultely triggering my interest about what's the future with MPA, or Area with Special Interest in the ABNJ.
Besides, I think Andrew Lewin have shared his personal experiences and some thoughtuful advices with people who studying related to ocean field, which is really helpful for me.
SO thank you for your knowledge sharing.

Corrupted

Love the episodes, new to the podcast. Sounds like SUFB 847 has been corrupted around 3:44 mark.
