Global Collapse of Fisheries

A big thank you to my friends at Reef Teach who posted this on Facebook:

Did you know that leading fisheries scientists predict a GLOBAL COLLAPSE OF FISHERIES by 2048? Sadly, Australia recently ranked only 31st out of 51 major fish-producing nations in terms of the sustainability of our fisheries and the Southern Bluefin Tuna is still being fished to the brink of extinction. But it’s not too late to do something about it. Support campaigns like The Exhausted Oceans Appeal (link below), or change your eating habits! There are links at http://reefteach.wordpress.com/courses/what-can-i-do/ to guides on buying sustainable seafood in Australia, Europe and North America. Download them and change the way you eat seafood today!

Reef Teach and Jelly Watch Need Your Help

Reef Teach, Cairns, Australia One of the things we sometimes get asked about at Reef Teach, particularly by people working in the dive industry, is unusual jellyfish sightings. “Do you know what that big/small/ clear/purple/spotty/flowery/round-thing-with-dangly-bits I saw the other day was?” Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t – it helps if you have a photo! If you do, you can also submit them to JellyWatch – an awesome site for all things jelly! Find them on Facebook   http://www.facebook.com/jellywatch or go direct to their website
