When it comes to climate change and the ocean, we often think of the impacts to water temperature, sea level rise and coastal storms. However, Dr. Chris Gobler of Stony Brook University calls ocean acidification a "game-changer in the way we think about how climate change can affect the functioning of our oceans."
The EPA is taking public comments on the pesticide Triclosan, which may be, among other things, an endocrin disruptor and is ubiquitous in the environment.
This Saturday, June 26th, more than 500 hands-joining events are planned for beaches across the United States to protest oil drilling and the dangers it presents to marine wildlife, fishing industries and coastal communities.
Can New York City seafood be local again? A number of seafood-centric writers and scientists recently gathered to tackle that not-often-asked question.
85 percent of oyster reefs have been lost globally. Yet oyster lovers can still gorge themselves on a sustainable supply of these briny delights. What gives?
Ted Danson spent the last 25 years actively working on the environmental challenges facing our oceans, most notably by founding Oceana and now he’s published a book by the same name.
Shana Miller is director of Tag-a-Giant, an organization that's reversing the decline of northern bluefin tuna populations. We took some time to talk about bluefin tuna, her life and what questions to ask the next time you order sushi.
You probably know Ted Danson from Cheers, but with the release of his new book, "Oceana," you get a chance to also know the actor as a 25-year ocean advocate.
Triclosan is back in the news because the FDA is evaluating its safety. Results of the review will be out at the end of 2012. The EPA has yet to report on it’s review.
It's the year of two salmons: one genetically altered and under review by the FDA, and the other an inhabitant of one of the last great wild salmon runs (which is unfortunately situated atop a bunch of copper and gold deposits).
James Whitlow Delano leads one of those lives you read about in NatGeo, spending his days traveling to exotic places, getting lost in the jungle with only his camera for company. Thankfully, he finds his way out and shares his photos with the world.
If you're from Maryland or ever lived in Maryland you've probably been to a crab feast (or crab "pick" in Virginia) and you know that Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs are the best in the world. I was lucky enough to indulge in this summer rite of passage recently and as we picked our bushel of crabs we talked about the health of the Bay and the impact of one of the worst droughts in decades.
According to a new report by Oceana, the areas most at risk from the harmful impacts of ocean acidification and climate change are poor coastal and small island nations, regions that depend heavily on seafood for protein.
Seismic testing for oil and gas under the Atlantic Ocean seafloor could injure up to 138,500 whales and dolphins and impact 108 fishing communities dotting the East Coast. But a growing chorus of allies is looking to stop the testing before it starts.
This Earth Day is being celebrated by collecting pictures and stories that show The Face of Climate Change. Our choice is Dr. Chris Gobler, a biologist from Stony Brook University who discusses in a video interview his important research on the effects of ocean acidification on marine life.
Before you hit the beach, check its status! Storms, sewage leaks and other events can result in dangerous debris or pathogens, which could spoil your day in the sun.
