Join us Friday, Halloween night! Listen to fish talk, if you dare!!!!
Steve Lundblad has been in the aquarium industry for over three decades. He is widely known as an Aulonocara expert and has maintained more than thirty species of Aulonocara for well over twenty years. He is one of the few that can easily tell the young female species apart. He has given many presentations to aquarium clubs across the nation and internationally and has received numerous awards for his breeding and conservation efforts. Recently, on his latest trip to Lake Malawi he assisted in the reintroduction of Pseudotropheus Saulosi to the Taiwan reef where the species is nearly gone due to the popularity in the aquarium hobby and overfishing.

Today we are going to speak with Gaelin Rosenwaks ,Friday 7/25/2014 2:00PM eastern
Gaelin Rosenwaks is a marine scientist, explorer and photographer. Always fascinated by the marine world. She began her career at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution where she researched over-wintering patterns of Southern Ocean zooplankton. Gaelin earned her Master’s Degree in Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University working with the Tag-A-Giant program and conducting research on the migratory movements of Giant Bluefin Tuna. She has conducted fieldwork throughout the world from the Antarctic to the Arctic on icebreakers to both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans on fishing
vessels. Gaelin founded Global Ocean Exploration (GOE) to share her passion for ocean exploration, marine conservation and photography. GOE ‘Global Ocean Exploration’ is a company devoted to bringing cutting-edge expedition science to the public through photography, writing, and film. She now participates and conducts expeditions in every ocean to alert the public not only to the challenges facing the oceans, but also to what science is doing to understand these changes.
Gaelin is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain, and a Fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers Club where she served as Secretary of the Board of Directors. She also serves on the Conservation Committee of the Explorers Club. Gaelin has published articles in scientific journals, newspapers and magazines. She has also appeared as a scientific consultant and angler on the National Geographic Channel Series, Fish Warrior.
On Wednesday April 16th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, Ken McKeighen and Joe Faszl will be discussing those amazing deep sea animals, the Nautilus with our guest Greg Barord. Greg will be talking to us via Skype from location. The Nautilus are endangered because of overfishing. Learn about what efforts are being done and how we can help save these amazing animals.
Pete Bethune, founder of Earthrace Conservation
In his own words: "Conservation is uniting people in a similar way; however, the sense of belonging and contribution is much stronger. People are willing to sacrifice much more in support of their tribe. Further to this, their tribe is one of many sub-tribes making up the conservation movement in general. So all the conservation groups, including Earthrace, are all sub-tribes with converging values and ideals, and together we make up a very considerable tribe that is a growing and mobile force around the globe."
Earthrace Conservation is a powerful fusion of direct action, knowledge and expertise, education, and most importantly, passion, which we strongly believe will grow into one of the most effective marine conservation groups in the world.
The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface – they are vast. The scale of the problems and issues being faced by marine mammals and the habitats they live in is equally immense.
In October 2013, Pete, an Earthrace team of ex-services personnel (The Operatives) and a volunteer support crew, plus the new Sealegs amphibious craft, returned home after a three month campaign in Costa Rica helping to tackle pirate vessels fishing illegally around the coast.

Welcome to Radio Free Rescue!
Our inaugural interview features Brian Lochlaer, founder and coordinator of Harp Seals DFW.
Brian founded Harp Seals DFW in August 2011 as a grassroots organization working to raise awareness of the annual harp seal hunt in northern Canada. The group also hosts fundraising events on behalf of Harpseals.org and the Humane Society of the United States, both of which are active in the harp seal protest movement. One of Harp Seals DFW's most prominent campaigns is a national boycott of the Red Lobster restaurant chain, the largest importer of Canadian seafood in the United States.
About the Mission Each year, hundreds of fisherman in the Newfoundland and Labrador province of Canada head out to the ice floes and slaughter tens of thousands of harp seals pups, the vast majority of which are under three months of age. (Harp seals can live up to 40+ years of age.)
The hunt, which dates back several hundred years, serves two purposes, according to the fishermen: to generate income from the sale of the seal fur, and to protect their cod fish stocks, which the fishermen claim is endangered because of the presence of the seals.
Organizations, including scientists from Canada's fisheries agency, counter that overfishing is the culprit behind the depleted cod stock, not the seals. In addition, the market for seal fur has all but virtually disappeared. The U.S., Russia and the EU have all banned the importation and sale of seal fur.
Located on Cannery Row, the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories and the setting of two John Steinbeck novels, the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa is part of an area steeped in local history and local activity. It’s located just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, snorkeling, sailing, and whale watching.
Until the 1950s, there was an abundant sardine fishing and canning industry, but overfishing led to the decline of the fishing industry. More than a prime fishing location, Cannery Row was also a haven for artists and authors. The street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row.
Concentrated efforts in the last 30 years to care for Monterey Bay have helped re-build the fish populations, which has increased populations of other aquatic life—otters, dolphins, sea lions, orcas, and humpback whales. Now, Monterey Bay is one of the best places for observing ocean life in the world. On this week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg, we head to the Northern California town of Monterey to discover and hear about the rich history of the area first hand from the locals.
