"ocean health" Discussed on The Rich Roll Podcast

"So over the course of only a few decades dating back to maybe 1950 in this era in which the conventional wisdom was essentially that the ocean was an undelete able resource that would more resilient than anything that we could throw at it. We've now learned that that's very much not the case. We've lost something like 50% of our coral reefs. We've seen mass underwater species extinction. We have these algal blooms and all of the kind of disastrous implications of our developing world and the implications that that's having on our oceans. State the case for why ocean health is so critical. I mean, you mentioned carbon capture and how vital the oceans are in terms of that. But why should we care? Like, why is this so crucial that we do everything in our capacity to protect and preserve our ocean system? When I was asked that question back in the 70s by a young woman reporting for Australian publication, it just flashed with me that okay, so you don't care about the ocean because you don't eat fish. You don't swim, people don't drink salt water. If the ocean dried up tomorrow, why should you care? I said, okay. You got it. Dry up the ocean, no ocean. What have you got? Only about 3% of earth's water is not ocean. And that 3% is constantly being recharged by the ocean as.

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool. I can remember my first. Underwater camera was sealife. Reef master with a whopping three mega pixels now. This housing will fit a number of iphones and android smartphones. The housing is bluetooth enabled and his rate it to one hundred and thirty feet. The sea life sport diver smartphone. Housing comes with a vacuum seal and duly alarms when you purchase the housing. You'll get a free app that will give you access to most of your phones. Usual camera functions also included is a red filter. And if that's not enough to housing allows you to put in those sealife life color changing moisture. Munchers he i remember those now. The housing isn't cheap. It retails for two hundred ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents. Us but if you wanna travel light and still get some great underwater shots of your adventures check out the c. Life sport diver smartphone housing at sea. Life fash cameras dot com. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on scuba shack radio.

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one

"ocean health" Discussed on Weather Geeks

"Big part of that was including the private sector because the private sector seem space x in space. You have ocean tech companies that have stepped up and have great capabilities. No saw that. And i lend the effort to advance all these partnerships. One for example was with victimised. Schiavo of kaladin shannon who set the record deep dive to human operated submersible to all five trenches in the oceans and we partnered with him to get data from those missions. Because we really couldn't do it alone ourselves and so ocean understanding is one. The second is ocean health. There are many health ocean. Health challenges like harmful algal blooms. Ocean acidification from good climate change. You have Pressure on fisheries illegal. Fishing nets happening mostly by china. They're depleting fish stocks worldwide. Doing this other. Countries exclusive economic zones. There's a wide array of ocean challenges coral disease coral bleaching and one of the things we didn't know was to address a variety of ocean health issues restoring habitat addressing the coral disease in florida of programs to monitor ocean acidification programs to actually combat armor allowable blooms with new technologies so that was second big area and the third area so you have understanding you have ocean. Hell is sustainable use. That's what the blue is about and they talk about the ocean. Coastal economy sustainable use of the ocean with that mies is things like re transportation but does the transportation that doesn't harm renewables for example so ensuring that ships can still go and do they do into us ports but ensuring that our protection measures are met and they ships. Don't interfere with their migration. It's things like fishing and ensuring that we don't over-fish we we say. Ted catch limits is other economic areas like tourism recreation which action the biggest component of the blue economy. And and so. It's like our national parks in on the coast and our national read sanctuaries which are underwater national parks and noah runs that wonderful office. And i've been scooby dove in many of those are several and i just i know. So there's those are the three big areas understanding hell and sustainable use and we are back on. The weather geeks podcast. I'm dr marshall shepherd. And i'm speaking with retired rear. Admiral timothy gallia debt about noah's role with oceans and just his general perspective is one of the nation's leaders and experts on oceans and climate and weather and so forth. Because we're dealing with a lot. I think your last answer. There was freely important. Because i think even if you know i'm i'm here in the metro atlanta area. I'm nowhere near the ocean right now. But the ocean affects my life in so many ways when you talk about fisheries and how it regulates our climate system and fuels hurricanes and provides. You know life breathing. Sustenance us here on the planet. So i think people oftentimes think off. I don't live on the ocean near the ocean on the coast You know this is not really a concern. We'll give you a little bit more of what tim did. At least. During noah is noah tenure. He directed no support to the administration's indo pacific strategy oversaw. Noah's arctic research operations engagement and was leading the execution of noah science and technology strategies for artificial intelligence unmanned systems cloud and citizen science so He he and his role had quite a bit of influence on what was going on in ocean. Science shift not from the oceans to the coast. Tim me every certainly something that you think about. Forty percent of our nation's population is last. I checked live near the coast. We seen.

"Get involved and so we decided that we were gonna look at potentially transitioning our entire supply chain to using bones that were made from regenerate raised animals and as we kind of dug in what we realized very quickly was. There's not enough plot like even if a company at our size and we're not we're not campbell's or not general mills were not any of these massive food companies even a company our size like just physically cannot buy enough generally raised bones so that our entire product line is made from animals raised using regenerative agriculture. And so what We kind of saw after digging in and learning about this talking rancher talking to suppliers talking to a bunch of groups you know we just realized that it was gonna be impossible for us to transition everything over so we decided to do instead is we are now launching a line of genitive roths and so we're launching a beef chicken bone broth are maze mid with bones farther ranchers that are using regenerative agriculture. Were paying a premium to buy these phones. Were making them in the exact same product that many consumers knowing love. But we're just deciding to pay a little bit more to our suppliers and use regenerate guns hopefully with the aim to sort of create a profit in financial incentive for more and more ranchers and farmers to switch more of their supply chains from you know either conventional to regenerative or even like organic to regenerative or grass address finished a regenerative and we wanted to sort of provide the be one of the first companies in the space not only so that there is a financial incentive. If you switch over hell and fire will buy boats. Put if you're transitioning from mcgrath said to our genitive operation but we also wanted to get the product out there just to do a little bit of education with our consumer base around what is regenerative. Why does it matter. What's his impact on the planet. What does it mean from nutritional standpoint All these kind of things. so. I'm i'm super excited. It's been wildly challenging and a lot of ways to work on launching a fully regenerative product line. But i'm super excited that we got it done. I'm super excited. That exists on a national scale. Now and i know that you also would be the first to join me encouraging. People on a smaller scale to like each of us in our own homes as we buy meat if local farmers regenerated farmers and support the ecosystem in that way. Because like you said as we as there's demand increases and has all of us are asking for this the more awareness there is on a small scale to that also over time helps create larger supply which to your point. I'm really hopeful that over the next ten twenty years. We're going to see this become as important as organic and non. Gmo have become part of the conversation. And i think that requires all of us including everybody listening becoming aware of this and making those micro choices day today and then it's also super convenient than we have national options as well but huge kudos you guys for choosing that on a company wide level because i can only imagine all the complexity that went along with that is not easy. I think our operations wanted to kill me at a couple of different points but but we got it done. And i'm super proud of the whole team and everyone is now really excited about regenerative especially as we've learned more about it it i'm thrilled. I mean i'm hopeful that ten years from now not only regenerate something that bigger brands national brands like us are talking about and bought into. But exactly like you said if consumers have a relationship with their farmer and they're talking they're farmer saying like. Hey i'm hearing about regenerative. Are you doing this or not. That is that is like how change happens. Is that the ground roots Groundless kinda level where consumers are building a relationship with products that they're eating the food they're consuming and really starting to make change at the at that level so i'm hugely support of that And human support in general of more local kind of food system where farmers are using the right practices and consumers understand. What the way is that. They're farmers raising feeding and processing. They're sort of animals and crops and to go a little deeper one of your earlier points as well as like. I think it's important to understand when we talk about climate related issues like. There's some pretty grim predictions if we don't turn things around pretty quickly and the two biggest areas that we need to concentrate do that our ocean health and soil health because those are the ones that directly impact the climate changes that are occurring on a wide scale. So it's great that we all for instance recycle and they're all making some of these climate conscious choices but when you rank these things against each other the things that we do support the soil or the ability of the ocean to stay healthy and continue creating oxygen. Those are the ones that literally are vital for human survival especially over the next few decades. Are there other ways that we as consumers can get more educated or help to work toward that movement. Because i know you've done so much research on this and written about it. I'll make sure you include your articles about it but any other suggestions on a consumer level that we can do to help move that forward. That's a great question. I think buying regenerative products in supporting Brands that are falling regenerative practices. I think is a great one. If you're someone that is investing in the stock market or like looking at potentially putting your money where in an area that you care about. There's some really cool platforms cropping out that allow you to do so like there's a company called goats steward go stewart dot com. That where i i can go there. I can find a small regenerate rancher in austin sales side austin live and if that guy needs fifty grand seventy five grand to buy some equipment and transition his small. You know plotted farm over to agenda agriculture. I can actually lend in that money and get get a six to eight percent return. Any that's kind of a cool thing that if you're if you're someone that wants to put your money to work in an area or 'cause you believe in is really kinda neat you know so buying. I think buying products buying locally is a big thing supporting your local restaurants and farmers like talking to them about ingredients. That you're sourcing. And then also i think a big piece of this is just educating people like for so many people when i start to talk to them about why meat is actually not bad for the environment and about the benefits of regenerative agriculture both from environmental standpoint in the nutritional standpoint. That's i think where change you know. People are like well. That's surprising that's not something. I've heard that goes against the narrative that i've read about in the washington post or whatever and it really changes people's minds and so i think the more that you can get informed and just have friendly conversations with your other well meaning friends that are trying to well in the world and do the right thing for themselves in for the planet. I think these like ten million of these micro conversations in people being more willing to talk about these sorts of things really really makes a difference and so i. I wish there was like a better way. That consumers can do this across the board. But i do think it. Just it just comes down to like what choices are you making as individual. What are you doing kind of spread the word and talk about this stuff with other people might care about these issues. And that's that's about all you can do. Which is both you may not feel like a lot but also multiplied by ten thirty million people. That's how real change happens. Absolutely and i wanted to make sure we concentrated on the environmental piece. I because that so top of mine in the media right now. But i think we also have to talk about the health impact of these foods because there's also a misconception that is bad for you now and that these other foods might be healthier alternative and i think that's another really important one to kind of take head on because you already touched on this a little bit but i want to go deeper on this because i know your entry into this world came from a health the health side as well on that. You've studied decide a lot. There's a missing piece of the conversation about for instance the nutrient availability per calorie when you're talking about animal based foods versus these plant based foods that don't have the same nutrient composition and it's so important for me for all the parents listening because we know from the data there's so many of the compounds in these generally raised foods are vital for our kids for proper development. But i'd love to hear your take on the health impact as well. Because i feel like it's very much a twofold issue.

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside. I really liked my Olympus t g six. well don't worry. A new company named 'em digital solutions is producing the old olympics. Cameras binoculars audio gear. They took over in january. Two thousand twenty one. Their website is get olympus dot com. Now if you want to know more about the company checkout oem dash digital solutions dot com. This company is based out of tokyo. And it's led by sha guinea saga motto all digital solutions employees about two thousand people with evaluation of twenty seven billion yen or about three hundred and thirty three million. Us dollars the oem comes from the nineteen seventies oem solutions that they put in place to make cameras smaller more rugged and quieter. This is great news especially for us olympus fans. Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace. Well it's summer. And i know that a lot of people like to catch up on summer reading while they're on vacation we'll scuba diving. Magazine just published a list of books that you might consider in their armchair adventure section. A couple of book stood out. One of them was in oceans deep courage innovation and adventure beneath the waves. And that's written by bill steve. And it's a history of our underwater presence. He covers submarines saturation diving and recreational gear. Bill also goes into the impacts of aro vs versus in-person exploration. You can pick up this book in ocean deep for about fifteen dollars in paperback. Now the second book is exploration deep ocean the first descent to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans and it's written by josh young. The book covers the exploits of victor scovill and his team on their history-making mission. You can find this book in hardcover for a little over twenty one dollars time to kick back with some good summer reading and finally here on wet note if you're a collector of vintage gear or want to start mark your calendar for the vintage scandal auction on july seventeenth.

Guess she learn something new every day now. Here's some discouraging news out of grand cayman and it doesn't have to do with the covid nineteen pandemic but rather about another disease outbreak among coral the stony coral disease or sc td. According to an article in the came encompass an isolated area containing disease was spotted at life off a smith cove. And that's along the south west coast and that's not good. The came in department of environment also reported infected sites amal along grand cayman's east coast the now suspects that divers and boat operators be spreading it although scientists are still not exactly sure how stony coral tissue disease spreads. If you look at the outbreak map you get the feeling that it could be divers or boat. Operators there are new disinfecting guidelines for local divers. Not sure how these will translate to us when the caymans open back up again as if we didn't have enough to contend with with covid nineteen now it stony coral tissue disease and our dive gear every day. Now we're learning about more destinations for diving opening up around the world. One of these locations is bon air. There was an article on dive. News wire from the bon air tourism department.

Unlike the bahamas of it appears that you'll still need an antigen or pcr tests even if you are vaccinated before entry and of course for returning to the united states. It sounds like you might be able to get these tests at the airport or at three other facilities on the island so even though bonaire will open. Be sure you're properly prepared. Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to travel without restrictions if you're fully vaccinated and finally here on wet notes. I just saw that. Bob ballard has a new book out and it's titled into the deep and memoir from the man who found titanic a couple of years ago. We met doctor ballard at the sixty fifth boston.

Ballard turned seventy nine in june and he said that depend pandemic. He had a lot of times on his hands.

Now as mike in dior getting ready their gear we see tomas sneaking a flare gun into his rig back underwater. The three divers are set for a long swim with patrol boats circling around.

Realizes mike nelson is on his way. President they durant says. Mike nelson is an extraordinary man to which ivano replies. He's an extraordinary gag. Man you see. The revolutionaries have set up a concrete and steel screen across the channel.

He makes his way to the sea wall and is ready to fire off his flare gun to signal the four when mike jumped him they didn't tie tomasz to a floating rafts off the island and set off a smoke bomb again to confuse the revolutionaries mike and i had to the other side of the island.

"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

"This is wet notes for april twenty third. Two thousand twenty one here on scuba shack radio. I up just after i recorded. The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

We talked all about the sources of marine debris how it gets into our waterways and we all shared examples of problems with Marine debris that we've encountered. We also talked about all the efforts being made to clean up the ocean and we all agreed that a critical step that must be taken is that we have to stop putting trash in the ocean to begin with. From there, we transitioned into discussion the actual dive and how valuable it is to conduct a dive against debris survey. One of the neat things about the course is the dive against debris data card that you can use to complete and record your survey. It's a two-page form that captures all the relevant information about your survey like the location the latitude and longitude depth duration participants and more money. And then you also have a detailed check list to catalogue all the trash you find. I just want to note that you only record trash that you pull out from under water on a Surface are on the beach. It doesn't count. We closed out our virtual session by discussing how to make our survey account and that's by following the five easy steps way sort record disposed and report. We finished up the Night by reviewing the logistics for our Sunday morning dive. Well Sunday morning arrived with some spectacular New England fall weather a great day for diving at Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Rhode Island, and we were treated to some pretty good visibility. After our dive briefing and going through our plan, we geared up and hit the water with five divers. Our survey time came in at 41 minutes and we managed to pull three pounds of trash from underwater. Of the nineteen pieces of trash we recovered three of them were surgical face masks certainly a sign of the times. Once the sorting and recording was complete we bundled all the trash for proper disposal. I gotta say we all felt really good about our dive with a purpose. And then it was very rewarding to actually record our results in to dive against debris database c r i dive against debris badge next to our one hundred percent aware of like organized aware action badges on this project aware site and then find our survey on the map. When I first started planning this course little did I realize how impactful it would be for me and I think our newly certified dive against debris divers felt the same way home driving with a purpose participating in citizen science while having fun under water is special. If you're die shop isn't doing dive against debris ask them if they might consider doing it you and they won't be disappointed time to make every dive a dive against free.

"They're just prompts. Other ways of accessing your unconscious flow of words. And so when I was thinking about how we could engage in a year of self reflexivity about in science practice, but not have it be just naval gazing, but also have it be actively contributing to some of those things that we hold dear and inside Yosemite that we care for or that we want to contribute to caring for. And in this case, we were very much within a coastal stewardship inside us, which has to do with what is the coast and this idea of stewardship. Does the cost steward us? It creates certain forms of living and understanding and of embodiments and how do we go from there from what the coast teaches us about what we can undo if we go back to the story of Gabriela mistral and how the sea undoes the land. And so we're trying to undo our humanity and here we are the coast is undoing us. The salt creeps into our body isn't actually cracks open the skin and what comes out of there is warts sometimes like I now have warts on my face because I am spending so much in the water and in the sun. You know, it's interesting because the warts are a virus and so the virus is within me are flourishing and coming out to live on my skin. We proposed that we use one of Maria Dennis for Scripps as a way to spend time with each other working towards our coastal curriculum, which is what we call this learning from the coast process. And the script that we chose is fei fu and her friends. It's a masterpiece. It's set in the 1930s, but written their early 70s, Medellín, had moved from Cuba to New York many years prior to that. She was no longer Susan Sontag's lover, but was forever in love with her. And she writes this story that occurs during one day where 8 women meet at a country house in the 30s to discuss a collective education project that they have. And when I remembered the piece and I had seen it staged in New York as a child, I thought shit, marine and I wrote this for us. She time traveled or we telepathically communicated over dimensions and she's gifted us a model to think through our practice. And then surely enough, some confirmation of that occurred and I was in New York in November and the piece was being restaged and I got to see it again and in it she deconstructs the space of the stage and so the audience moves around and sees the same scene from different points of views and so at any given moment you understand the story in a different sequence. It is really a masterpiece so that we were very lucky. And we just took it on. I asked a bunch of the closest insights who seemed to be more enthusiastic about this ten year mark to say who wants to come into this process. I don't know what it is, but we're going to start by reading 5th who and her friends. When I had seen it stage, I'd known exactly who I thought cuckoo was, but her name was in cuckoo, was faithful, faithful, and who the other characters were, almost to the T everybody claimed their character, according to that first intuition of mine. And we began to meet weekly 8 o'clock, Wednesday mornings to play with each other for 12 weeks we just played play it play play play play play play. Where it's going is maybe more than to say what it is because maybe people can watch it at a live on the new museum's website for a while. They commissioned it through a residency that we did with them, but where it's growing is that the act two is the actual presentation that these women have come together to brainstorm or to prepare and that presentation is a fundraising scheme for coastal ling for title thinking for title likes to use that beautiful concept. It will happen in Zürich. And so we will also take the lead of data is turned data on its head and the data is did this some while back ago that performed a piece which was just for some of the wealthier class in Surrey to fundraise for an impossible scheme that they had, and they were threatened to death for doing it, so we're prepared for that. We're looking for ways to channel capital differently. You know, as I look at all of these different initiatives that are coming up around the ocean or about ocean health or ocean conservancy, I'm forever studying the la lira tikka, the underwriting of who's funding this, whose interests are being pursued, and I won't go into my analysis of that, but I will say that the places where most attention is being placed is evidence enough of how the flows of capital and the accrual of wealth continue to be the same ones. You are in relationship with them even if you are not entering their relationship by choice. I personally go back and forth. Sometimes I have the strength and the conviction and the clarity of mind to enter into relationships knowing that at least for me there is a time limit. After a while, I start to not so much get jaded. I already am, but I start to feel like it defeats me. I don't have the smarts enough to keep on top of its logic. And so that's when I retreat ahead of I nurse my sense of the alternative or the alternative and then I try and go back in. It's maybe quite futile. It's very, very title. I'm just finishing a bout of that. Having worked with the MoMA and new museum this summer, but just this Sunday, I had to get political therapy from Denise ferre de la Silva and Valentina, the severity, because it has created a mind fuck for me to be working with these institutions. I'm in no way dissing them. I think that the work we have done with the people who work in those institutions has really pushed the envelope as they say in English. But there are still consequences to operating within those institutional frameworks. And the consequences they have to do with the life of secrets and the ebbs and flows of how much you need to keep secret or how many secrets you want to reveal at any given moment as survival strategies..

Again, all caps who are interested in underwater sports.

He's also carrying the sports way waterlogging, Navy unit, dual air, and master diver regulators. He also lists something called the seamless shark three and two.

In addition to the wide array of Finns masks, snorkels, knives, tanks, wetsuits, and spear guns. Fen John is selling a whole variety of books on diving and believe it or not a treasure map. The catalog no longer carries compressors. Interestingly a letter at the end. A catalog states that Fan John's own products are not listed.

But I did discover was it on June twenty-fourth nineteen eighty, six, ninety crooked avenue in Ardmore. Pennsylvania. was sold to George F Johnson and Eldridge r Johnson the second his sons for one dollar. They subsequently sold the building a couple years later. So that concludes my three part series on an unsung hero diving history. I've learned a lot and hope that you found it interesting as well. Again I want to sincerely thank Sid mackin for the wealth of information he shared. And also thank Holly Joe Mangle along with Jennifer vests from the Drexel University. eldridge reeves fell more Johnson was a remarkable guy with a remarkable career in the underwater world. PODCASTS that I listen to is World Ocean radio. It's a weekly five minute audio essay by Peter Neil the director of the world, Ocean. Observatory so today I thought I'd share a little bit about the World Shen Observatory. It all started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight when the former president of Portugal Mario Souris formed a commission called the The Independent. World Commission on the Ocean. That commission developed a report titled The Ocean Our Future. It's actually a book that you can purchase online. In this report, the commission proposed an Ocean Observatory and not observatory would serve as a focal point for bringing together relevant information from other sources both official unofficial, intergovernmental, governmental, and non-governmental interested institutions and serve as an interactive virtual observations site for all ocean related activities on the World Wide Web. The World Ocean Observatory is a realization of that recommendation. It started around two thousand three. I couldn't exactly nail it down but according to a note or two thousand, seventeen annual report says that twenty eighteen was their fifteenth year. The vision of the world. Ocean Observatory or as they like to call themselves w two Oh is to be the leading organization advocating for the health and sustainability of the ocean through an accessible worldwide network of communications. Well. That's almost identical to part of scuba shacks mission to advocate for Ocean Health and sustainability. We didn't lift it from them but kinds of shows that were like minded organizations. They fulfill this mission through education partnerships, information exchange public, connecting this and relentless communication. I took a look at their goals and strategies and found a couple of their strategies that really resonated with me. One is that they want to be science-based and human driven. and. Another one is to be non-litigious independent and a political. That's pretty powerful. Peter Neal is founder and director of the World Ocean. Observatory, and as I mentioned at the top, he hosts World Ocean radio and that started in two thousand ten and Peter is done more than five hundred and forty five episodes today. Peter has a unique resume and he lives in Downey Smain. W. Two oh is based out of Sedgwick Maine but I did read that they were thinking about or moving to Portland Maine in spring of twenty twenty. So I'm not sure if that really happened with the covert crisis or not..

Scientists work to protect fish could be undone by climate change

"Andrew Rosenberg has always felt most at at home near the see. I grew up on the ocean I've been sailing since I was two years old by knew that whatever I was going to do I was gonna work on the ocean. He made good on that promise. He earned degrees in fisheries science oceanography and biology and has studied and promoted ocean health for more than forty years. In the nineties. Rosenberg worked for the National Marine Fisheries Service there he helped develop regulations to address overfishing in New England and the mid Atlantic. He says, fish populations have slowly started to recover, but now climate change threatens to undo that Progress I spent a lot of my career and a lot of blood sweat and tears on trying to and problems of overfishing, and now we have another major human impacts problem that might wipe out those accomplishments. The Gulf of Maine where Rosenberg lives is warming faster than almost any other spot in the world's oceans species such as lobsters and clams are already moving north or to deeper colder waters. So Rosenberg says preventing overfishing is no longer enough to protect ocean ecosystems. The world must limit global warming.

"Many of us go on die vacations to exotic spots and do a majority of our diving from a boat. I did a piece on boat diving etiquette back in February. And you can check out the archives if you're interested one of the things we don't have to worry about when we were diving from a boat is having a die flag that all changes if we are sure diving. You'RE GONNA have to fly or carry your own die flag now. I I learned about die. Flags in my patty open water diver course like most of us have and we actually used a die flag when we were doing our certification dives at Fort Weather. All in Jamestown Rhode Island. Now I went back to my original open water manual to look at what they covered. Yeah I still have that manual. That was before we had the electronic learning. Now we're all familiar with the red rectangular flag that has the white diagonal stripe but remember. There's also blue and white double tailed pennant. Or Alpha flag that signifies diving operations now according to Patty. The flag must be large enough to be seen from at least one hundred yards or meters away so to give you some perspective. Think about this. You're standing on the goal line of a football field and that you're able to see and more importantly identify that flag placed on the other goal. Line I want to cover a couple of other things about your die. Flat your flag is supposed to be flying so do accomplish. This usually have a wire across the flag to keep it extending now. You GotTa make sure that that wire is in place and there are no rips or tears in the flag the might make go limp remember. You're on that far goal line and it's Kinda hard to pick out the flag if it's not flying also. The flag needs to be seen by any boats in the area and should be at least three feet above the surface. Now that's absolutely necessary. When there are choppy seas the laws in your area may have special requirements. So you're going to have to check them out on the distances etc. But if they don't you WanNa stay within fifty feet of your diet. Flag and boats are supposed to stay one hundred two hundred feet away from die flat. Now I can tell you from experience and seeing it. That doesn't always happen. Boats don't usually respect. Sometimes they don't respect that one hundred two hundred foot rule. The die flags pretty simple is usually has a float and nears. This poll that goes through the middle of it runs through the the float and it usually has a counterweight on the bottom to keep the pole upright. Now you also have a line attached to it. That usually seventy five hundred feet normally polypropylene wrapped around the holder. Like I said it's pretty simple until you get into water you have to practice holding it leading out the line keeping the float above you not trailing way behind pulling the float underwater or getting tangled up in the line of another die flag or your gear. We've seen it all at our open waters in Jamestown. Also remember you need to hang onto your holder. We've seen that to die. Flags get away from people. Remember die. Flags are another important piece of your safety equipment and it's only safe. You know how to use it. So when you're on your shore dive be cognizant of what you're doing with that die flag practice with it and be safe with it.

If we don't start to address what we're seeing in terms of the impacts of fossil fuel driven climate change on our coastal oceans. But he says the ocean is often overlooked in climate policy discussions. So halvard group is lobbying for what some refer to as a blue deal. A comprehensive set of policies and programs to protect ocean health and help coastal communities adapt to climate change for example they wanna see policies that reform the National Flood Insurance Program and protect critical fish habitat. They also advocate for restoring coastal ecosystems.

Activists Will Use Super Bowl To Raise Awareness About The Environment

"When thousands of people attend and millions of People Watch the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday? Environmental groups hope that some people will look beyond the stadium. They want to use the super bowl to raise awareness about ocean health and the everglades. Here's Alexandra consolidate of our member station. WWL R N Jose Melendez Melendez was visiting Miami from his hometown of San Francisco decked out in Bright Red Forty Niners Jersey. But he's not attending the game. I'm not going can't afford artist expensive Melendez instead was here at a free festival put on by the local host committee that includes an environmental village. I was shocked to see all this environment. This is different. There were virtual reality headsets. That took people underwater without getting wet. You're going to slide this on your face. Scenic coral. FEC's Miami has hosted the Super Bowl eleven times times more than any other city. But it's the first time that the local host committee has decided to make this kind of awareness campaign focused on the environment they call it ocean to everglades everglades. Hard Rock Stadium sits right in the middle from the Atlantic Ocean into the everglades to its west. Eric I can Burg wants the nonprofit everglades foundation station one of the groups putting on this campaign but when they turn on the tap at home to drink water to wash their cars go in their poll. Whatever it might be the water supply that they're benefiting from comes from the everglades millions of Floridians get their drinking water from the biscuit aquaphor located under the everglades? That's partly why. Some environmentalists environmentalists are calling for restoration of the so called river of grass. The large source of underground freshwater depends on the health of the wetlands. I Burke says says the focus is not only on the everglades but also plastics in the ocean invasive species and algae blooms the last six years. We've had states of emergency due due to red tide and blue-green algae so this has become mainstream Florida's Republican governor got involved with the effort Rhonda Santa's announced the launch of the Super Bowl campaign reign on Earth Day.

His group wasn't involved volved the Super Bowl but says the game can be a platform to talk about ways to fight the causes of climate change in some ways. Were misleading the public by not talking about Out The bigger crises that are facing south Florida. The biggest one of all is climate change and sea level rise. According to the National Oceanic an atmosphere administration global sea level is likely to rise at least a foot by the end of the century. Jack alone says in another fifty years Miami might not be able to host another super bowl. That's how fast it's going to take for the sea level rise to make life really bad in Miami fans of Sunday's Sunday's game we'll be cheering on the two football teams but these advocates hope that everyone at the Super Bowl will also route for the environment for N._p._R..

"Back in February this year we conducted the Patty Project Aware Specialty Class we were chanting it a little bit with the New England weather and as it turned out we did have a snowstorm that night we still held the class and it didn't deter nine people from coming out to partake in the discussion on Ocean Health and conservation so we have another class plan in November and we're hoping to see some folks come out and the have some of that dialogue again I thought it would be good to talk a little bit about project aware just what it is just where it came from originally it was a project that Patty had started back in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and it was a project around aquatic world Awareness responsibility education that's where the term aware comes from Originally was designed talk about the ten ways divers can protect the underwater environment then now those ten ways of morphed into the ten tips for divers to protect the ocean implant it in nineteen ninety two the project aware foundation was started so it spun off Patty and started its own organization and in Nineteen Ninety four project aware sponsored the international cleanup date I was the first one and it was in coordination with the Center for Marine Conservation and that more organization is now known as the ocean conservancy between eighty nine and two thousand five they did various campaigns and training and created courses for project aware are an end in two thousand and six two thousand and sixteen there was a big push for a advocating for healthy sharks and rays and coral reefs so you can seeout continues to to evolve over the years in two thousand and eight project aware joined the International Union for Eric Conservation of nature or a UNC and then in two thousand eleven they had a big year of sponsoring the dives against debris and they also introduced what they called one hundred percent aware and that's something that we scuba shack participated in we started in two thousand eighteen and what that means is for every paddy certification that we process at at Scuba Shack we make the nation to the project aware foundation a big mark was in two thousand eighteen was when they published the act that they have now removed one million pieces of trash through their dives against debris and also the introduced project aware week in in its innocence timber timeframe and they've had a couple of years of that and also in two thousand eighteen they revised the specially class and that's especially class was first offered in nineteen ninety eight I went back and looked at the book that I had from project aware way back then the goals of this course the Patty project Air Specialty course or to introduce people to the project aware movement and to familiarize them with those ten tips for divers and finely to demonstrate how individuals can make a difference now the ten tips I'll just read through real quick one be a buoyancy expert to be a role model three take only photos leave only bubbles for protect underwater life five become a debris activist six make responsible seafood choices seven take action eight being eco-tourist nine shrink your Carbon footprint and number ten give back to a project where long history of out there since nineteen eighty nine we're proud to be a one hundred percent of checked aware sponsor and we're hoping to have this class come off in November again and do it a couple of times every year.

Now there were fifty plus drafting offers authors of this summary For policymakers along with fifteen contributing authors and these were scientists and folks from all around on the world you can download the whole report on the IPC website and it's about a thou- well over a thousand pages when you see every getting in there on all the evidence that that supporting their their summary Now what is the crisis fear the crisis fear is defined components of the Earth System at and below the land and ocean surfaces that are frozen including snow cover glaciers ice sheets ice shelves icebergs sea ice late Geiss river ice permafrost and seasonally frozen ground now when you look at it the ocean comprises seventy one percent of the earth's surface while the cry of fear is about ten percent of the breath so eighty-one percent is being affected by climate change dramatically now the report also has defined their confidence levels from very low to very high in their findings and then also their likelihood of that things will happen as they describe I bh now the report on the summary For policymakers is broken down into three sections upfront which are the observed changes in impacts projected changes in risks and implementation of responses to the ocean cries fear what I thought so they're absorbed physical changes a one St over the last decades global warming has led to widespread shrinkage of the cries fear with masks loss of ice sheets and glaciers very high confidence reduction in snow cover high confidence and Arctic Sea ice extent and thickness the high confidence and increased permafrost temperature very high confidence that's finding a one eight two it is virtually the global oceans have warmed unabated since nineteen seventy and has taken up more than ninety percent of the excess heat in the climate system high confidence since nineteen ninety three the rate of ocean warming has more than doubled likely marine heatwaves are very likely doubled in frequency since one thousand nine hundred eighty two and are increasing in entity very high confidence by absorbing more co two the ocean has undergone increase surface acidification virtually certain a loss of oxygen in has occurred from the surface to one thousand meters medium confidence that's just the flavor of a couple of the observed changes in impacts you can read more about them on the report and it's the findings talk about global mean sea level rise the impacts on species in these areas the impacts to people.

Using seabirds to track ocean health

"We have and Roquetas Velarde as she's here to talk about using birds to you understand the Ocean Heinrich Atta Hello Sarah. How are you good? Thank you so much for joining us. What kinds of birds are useful for tracking what's going on in the ocean so I mainly working with turns and goals the but we can use Albatross is's bubis any kind of seabird will be giving you some type of information depending on how they use the environment so they could be telling you things about their prey species so if they you know certain kinds of fish? What else can they tell you about the ocean and the ecosystem they can tell you about whether their prey is very abundant or low usually low ocean temperatures will be the base of more productivity activity and so when the water temperature increases then the productivity goes down so they will tell you about that they can also tell you about pollution either from chemicals or from <unk> plastics like particles that they accumulate in their stomachs? Why is it easier say if you're looking at service temperatures and ocean productivity what why would it be easier to look at the birds rather than say the fish or plankton plight dinner something like that will for example of you want to know something about the fish? Usually you have to go with very expensive oceanographic research trips and if you're looking at the birds and you were at the nesting colony Lonie for example you can count the number of birds that are nesting or the number of nests that are established and then you can also weigh the birds or you can see the clutch size which means maybe they will lay one egg instead stood up two or three which is also indicative of lower food availability lewer ocean productivity these are much more accessible markers of all of these things rather than going to the ocean and trying to find the fish or measuring a lot love a large swath of ocean temperature exactly and if you have a large population nesting in a single island they will be your samplers and they will go out in every direction and they will bring back to the nesting area the information regarding whether there's a lot of food and what type of food varies right. There's also this important link between seabirds and fish stocks. We're talking commercial fishing here. Can you describe some of the past observations survey ships of this connection. My own experience for example is that when I started measuring or looking at the Diet of the birds that I work with they were feeding mainly on Pacific Sardine starting up saga about ninety percent of their diet was Pacific Sardine and a fleet the local sardine fishing fleet was taking a lot of sardines later on the birds started showing less and less sardine in their diet so about in nineteen eighty nine I. I started seeing almost no sardines in their diet and I went to the fishing fleet industry and I told him well you know the Sardinas almost gone and they were surprised because they were fishing a lot of sardine. They we're still being able to get a lot of sardines. The Sardine population collapsed in a couple of years so they're actually not only indicating how much there is but they can be predictors of what is going to happen in the following fishing thinks seasons because they are feeding on the small sardines which are not being fished yet by the fleet in these small sardines will eventually grow up in one or two years. These sardines are also known as Forage Fish. They're they are really a key species. What happens when they're over-fish? Twenty decline will the overfishing of all the forage fish is very important something that is happening worldwide one thing that is very important in about these fishes that they are key species. If we have a the upwelling ecosystems in the ocean that's when cold water comes up bringing with it nutrients and food for other birds and fish yes exactly that's what Edward Enhances the production of phytoplankton and so apply often. There's a lot of species many many species of Blackston those many many species of plankton get eaten by only a few species of forage rich fish like sardines anchovies carrying sent so forth these few species of fish are then used by seabirds other larger fish marine mammals of many many species even giant squid many species. He's so it's their job to turn plankton into meet exactly and that's why it's called the wasp waist ecosystem it goes through this very narrow tunnel and if that tunnel is disrupted then you're going to have a lot of Hungary a big species not able to deal with plankton is those fish are taken by fisheries and they're not taking sustainably then that will disrupt the foot web very drastically so birds are here not only not only is that food web important to them but there also these indicators of when this is happening yes so they're telling us that the plankton is not available through for example Tsk Sardine or northern anchalee or other species has following these birds on their colonies. How does that line up with other evidence like what satellites can tell us? Actually we're trying to do that right now. Many other scientists costs are doing that trying to relate for example the number of birds that are nesting or the breeding success to images that indicate sea surface temperature or chlorophyll concentration. It's turning out to be very interesting thing because it confirms that the CIBA's are actually telling us very interesting information even without having satellites for example if we didn't have satellites we could learn about the state of the ocean just by looking at what the seaward are are doing we have started deploying small tiny radio's on seabirds and that is also very interesting because that will tell us where they're feeding what routes migratory routes. They're following before getting to the breeding colony. What does it mean if their migration routes change or the breeding colony changes position or something like that well the breeding colonies have been changing positions recently in many species and that is a reflection of what's going on in the? The Ocean for example the sears that I work with the elegant turns through the years their nesting area has been shifting north they first established a little colony near San Diego then that colony grew and then they went all the way a close to L. A.. It's about a hundred kilometers in miles. It's about five hundred miles more or less so they're moving north and that has coincided with an increase in the ocean temperatures and increase in the ocean ocean temperatures anomalies in the Gulf of California and that is a reflection of they're not finding enough food where they used to nest in his Larisa where I work. How long have you been studying? These turns forty two years. We need to keep studying these patterns because our life is too short and if several generations of humans follow the studies then we'll be able to find something even more interesting than what we're finding doc. No all right thank you so much will thank you for inviting me for this interview and I hope many people read it here because I think it's good for the public to learn about all these issues and rick head of alarm.

"Right. That's it. Okay program. David snow you. Okay. We just had a few technical glitches there. So we will bring you call health report that was scheduled for this week next week. If we can't get it to you before the top of the hour, and we'll also have his addition for next week. So you get a double dose of health reports next week sorry about that one of those few few occurrences. All right. Getting back to our guest. Dr April sheltie talking about her book, save your life. Now. Let's let's talk about the high cost of medical care. Doctor sheltie now one enforce skipped treatment over costs. America's let's see. Here's the stead. Here. Americans borrowed about eight billion dollars to pay for healthcare costs last year and one in four people skipped it because of or skipped care because of costs including two new Gallup survey. And this is interesting since you talked about fear and worry well fear in healthcare. How here's a question. How confident are. Are you that elected Republicans and Democrats will find a bipartisan solution to rising healthcare costs? Let's see sixty nine percents. Not at all confident only one percent was extremely confident twenty two percents somewhat confidence. So you know, there's not much confidence in our healthcare system. That's for sure as I like to say HMO's stand for health manipulating organizations, but that's another program. So tell us from practitioner standpoint, what is your view on this? So I'm glad that you know, you stepped away from the whole political being about this. Because really we have the power to keep our health care costs down as healthcare consumers, if we take a conservative approach to a lot of our different health problems. And what I mean by that is things that really aren't that costly compared to things like thirty medications when we really take charge of our health and assume the responsibility of eating well and exercising, and and regulating our ocean health, those things don't cost too much money of been we can keep our healthcare costs down really do need those higher in price options for health. You know, hopefully, we have a cushion that we've created by not overspending when we don't need to spend. If that makes sense. No, no your services at the you're director of the healing horizons.

"If we don't know what's being caught and at what rate so if things are being mislabeled when it arrives to market what it's being sold once coming off these votes, then we don't know, you know, win these fisheries are going to collapse. What the yields are like what the actual spawning rates for all these different communities, which can be markers of overall ocean health like over coaches, a real, and so if we don't know that we can't take the right steps to preserve to preserve the ocean news. Yeah. And all these different fish habitats. If we don't know that groupers dropping off because you know, it seems like grouper sales are steady. But it's because we're just relabeling shit. Like, you don't know. And another reason goes back to what we're talking about with all that makes sense of somebody was like, well, this one specific fish is kind of like endanger arts more expensive. So I'm gonna go by grouper. But it's like that might be mislabeled. Exactly. And you can't like the example what they're saying. Oh, you know, these consumers thought they were buying local fish. It's like, no people. We always talk about how it partnered with to vote with your dollar. But if the information you're being given as a lie anyway, you can't make sustainable choices on menus or at the grocery store like as a consumer. It's way too time consuming for us to source food. So we trust the people selling it to us and one other reason is like what we were talking about with Oliver last week with behind the bar code is that if we don't have this traceability like they're saying from boat to play we don't know about the labor issues occurring with the people who are catching or harvesting or processing any of the seafood. So like they. They found. Slavery was still in part of the food chain for the shrimp caught in the South Pacific and being sold at whole foods. And it's like if we don't have the traceability, we don't know that that's happening. And we can't correct. That problem. You know, what would be a great alternative to any food? What's that the Sarno brothers? They just. About that. Yeah. Do we cover? Good coach. Yeah. We talked about it briefly. But I mean, this is another great example. It's like the good catch product is sold. Right. By the shelf Subaru sold right by tuna on the shop. It's like a little vacuum pack it like how darkest is. And it's a plant based tuna here in the us, go go to your local grocery store. Try it just see if you know very go without actual tuna. Even know what's in it. It's not in this label. I think I think we have one more quick ups store.
