The first results of @globalfinprint , a new global-scale analysis of the status of reef sharks led by aaron macneil at @dalhousieu, have been published in nature. congratulations to mo johnson and jorge angulo-valdeฬs, who contributed data from our indonesian and cuban marine sites to the study!

data for this study came from >15,000 baited remote underwater video stations (bruvs) that were deployed on 371 reefs in 58 nations.

results show reef shark populations overall to be severely depleted, with up to 20% of reefs surveyed having no sharks at all. however, shark abundance remained relatively high on some reefs, particularly those within protected areas, with fishing catch limits, and where fisheries did not use gillnets and longlines.

these results indicate which management techniques are effective in conserving shark populations, and it is recommended that such techniques be introduced elsewhere to prevent further declines in reef shark species.

this paper was published in nature and can be found online! send us a dm if you’d like the link.

global projects like this take a huge amount of work from many different people. a full list of the team and collabroators can be found on the @globalfinprint website!

@bbcnews and @bbcnews beat have also written about the study, not once, but twice! if you’d like the link to the articles then send us a dm ๐Ÿฆˆ

#moray #eels are often depicted as generic snake-like creatures with a #menacing head. however, there are over 200 species of morays in the world, each of them having a role in the #ecosystem they live in.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
for instance, the yellow-margin moray (gymnothorax flavimarginatus), also known as the yellow-edged moray, is a #naturalpredator of the #lionfish, a species known to be highly destructive in places where it is #invasive. this moray looks very similar to the more common and larger giant moray (gymnothorax javanicus) but can be identified through the mottled yellow pattern on its body.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
next time you dive in the #indopacific, look for this moray hiding in holes and caves in #coralreefs. they are usually found in shallower, clear coastal #reefs.

I’ve been coming to @tangaloomaislandresort for the past 10 years and it’s always magical! so close from home, affordable and everyone in the island makes you feel at home.... ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅฐ

to see the wrecks striving with amazing coral in amazing! since 1963 the wrecks are home to more than 100 species of fish and a resting area for green turtles as well. i’ve been told you can see them sheltering there at night!

i wanted to bring my son to connect in nature with him, celebrate his bday and i couldn’t thought of anywhere better than @tangaloomaislandresort . i think he will remember this little holiday for a long time! ๐Ÿ’™

A few field guides refer to this common crustacean on the reef as ‘banded coral shrimps’ or sometimes as ‘banded cleaner shrimps’ or ‘red-banded coral shrimps’, but well... they are neither prawns nor shrimps. in fact, they are closer relatives to c***s and lobsters. they feed on dead tissue, parasites, and unwanted food from fish bodies. they have this cool way of marketing their fish cleaning service through a little dance and the movement of their antennae.

While harbor seals generally have a speckled gray or brown coat, some in the san francisco bay area can be seen sporting coats with a reddish, orange hue. the @themarinemammalcenter in sausalito, california suggests this unique coloring could be due to an accumulation of elements, such as selenium or iron, that are found at some of the happening harbor seal spots.

whale sharks, beautiful & gentle giants of the deep. what is happening to them alongside many other shark species off the coast of the galápagos islands is heart wrenching.
.
pulled from their home, fins sliced off for soup and dumped like trash to drown. sharks have to keep swimming in order to breathe. so not only is the practice of finning disgusting & unnecessary, it is unfathomably cruel.
back in 2017 chinese fishing fleets where caught with over 6,000 frozen sharks some of which were endangered such as the great hammerhead. once again, illegal fleets are back in waters threatening the delicate ecosystem that so many people work hard to protect.
.
there is only one earth & one ocean. it is home to some of the most incredible & diverse creatures. so why are humans intent on destroying them? it often comes down to one thing, greed. in this case it is the greed and want for ‘delicacies’ such as shark fin soup.
.
please share and make your thoughts known. our voices are far more powerful in numbers. this cannot go on. mother ocean needs our help ๐Ÿฆˆ

first picture is a rock pool with multiple species of seaweed.
next is a green shore crab (carcinus maenas). ๐Ÿฆ€
finally is a compass jellyfish (chrysaora hysoscella).
๐Ÿฌ
growing up on the coast marine wildlife was what first ignited my passion for biology. seeing how diverse these small ecosystems amazed me!

¡los buzos son embajadores del mar, su deber es protegerlo para así continuar disfrutándolo!

el 7 de setiembre se celebra el día del buzo. esta fecha, busca honrar a quienes han descubierto un nuevo mundo bajo el agua: los buzos.
por esto, queremos invitarlos a la primera limpieza nacional subacuática en costa rica. nos hemos unido con varios centros de buceo a lo largo del país para trabajar en conjunto y contribuir a la conservación de la naturaleza. ¡seamos parte de la solución mientras disfrutamos de la grandeza del océano!

estaremos celebrando desde el 31 de agosto hasta el 7 de setiembre con webinars, videos y más, mientras que el 5 y 6 de setiembre realizaremos las limpiezas buceando desde flamingo hasta isla del caño.

๐Ÿคฟ pronto brindaremos más información sobre los puntos de buceo para que pueda reservar su espacio.

cabe destacar que los centros de buceo están comprometidos con los protocolos de salud recomendados por el minsterio de salud y el ict, los cuales se aplicarán estrictamente. recordemos ser responsables y disfrutemos de este voluntariado sin romper burbujas sociales. así, cuidaremos nuestra salud y la de nuestros seres queridos.

¿qué debo llevar?

- certificación de buceo
- mascarilla o careta
- bloqueador solar(safe-sea)
- vestido de baño
- guantes
- paño
- ropa extra

¡se brindarán las bolsas de tela y el equipo completo!

I know this post will get low engagement. it’s not a beautiful vacation snap or a candid celeb shot. but in the ‘insta vs reality’ battle i choose reality.

and the reality is that plastic surrounds us. from food to fashion we cannot get away from it. it’s an incredibly versatile material that’s relatively cheap to make.

but the plastic that’s cheap is also the plastic that doesn’t last. designed for single use, used in fast fashion and discarded without a second thought. but there is no such thing as ‘away’. when we ‘throw away’ our things they go somewhere - most likely landfill or ours oceans.

but this is where teddy locks steps in. we are helping to build a circular economy. where existing materials have value. where plastic bottles are more than what they seem. where they can become your new favorite socks.

our low socks have been so popular this month. and i’m super excited to get you more styles in the next month. let me know what kind of socks you love wearing and i’ll make them from recycled plastic bottles instead!!

Como pudieron ver en nuestros stories, con el paso de la tormenta isaías se perdió una gran cantidad de arena en gran parte de la playa de boca chica. no nos sorprende que el área del microsantuario gracias los mangles y los pastos marinos se vio afectada en menor medida. esto es una muestra importante de la importancia de cuidar nuestros ecosistemas costeros, no solo aportan a la conservación de la biodiversidad, también nos protegen de eventos catastróficos.

as you could see in our stories, with the storm isaías a large amount of sand was lost in a large part of the boca chica beach. we are not surprised that the microsanctuary area, thanks to mangroves and seagrasses, was less affected. this is a good example of the importance of taking care of our coastal ecosystems, they not only contribute to the conservation of biodiversity, they also protect us from catastrophic events.

Our save the coral reefs campaign is once again raising awareness of ocean protection in an unprecedented way.

locals and beach vacationers in the algarve were able to spot today the biggest aircraft in the world, the hi fly a380 “save the coral reefs”, as it overflew faro and vilamoura drawing attention to this environmental message.

coral reefs are one of the most important ecosystems on the planet. unfortunately, they are at risk for numerous reasons, and sunscreen is one of them. scientists have discovered that chemical compounds in some sunscreen products are causing various species of corals to bleach. it is estimated that 14,000 tons of sunscreen end up in the oceans each year.

enjoy the sun but remember to choose wisely, as you can protect the ocean while also protecting your skin.

We started the week with a rockpool walk-over survey on the south coast.

it was an extraordinary site with an array of high energy pools.

highlights included a plumose anemone (normally found in marinas), a ghostly looking dahlia anemone, and plenty of montagu's blennies!

let's us know what marine sightings you see on orks. link in bio!

Seabirds and plastic pollution // seabirds spend most of their lives at sea, so despite being land-based, their existence is greatly dependent on the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ this reliability also results in their populations being impacted by the environmental threats that the ocean faces, such as plastic pollution.โ €
โ €
in 1960, plastic was only found in less than 5% of seabirds’ stomachs. however, those numbers had grown to 80% by 2010 and has since risen to approximately 90% by 2015. based on rising plastic trends, scientists predict that plastic consumption will affect 99% of seabirds by 2050 (pnas, wilcox et al. 2015). this will have devastating consequences to the world’s seabird populations ๐Ÿ’” โ €
โ €
it’s difficult to wrap our minds around these figures, but information such as this are important reminders (among many others) to actively demand a systemic and sustainable shift away from plastic ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŒŽโœจโ €

“this work will serve to shine a light on the parts of antarctica and the southern ocean which are most essential for marine mammals, according to current knowledge,” said task force co-chair erich hoyt.

yesterday the @iucn_protected_areas iucn reported the approval of 13 new important marine mammal areas (immas) in the extended southern ocean region. immas provide a method to help identify biodiversity hotspots through access to marine mammal data and can be used to monitor climate change.

these areas feature habitats for species such as humpback, minke, blue, southern right and fin whales, as well as crabeater, leopard, weddell, ross, southern fur and southern elephant seals, new zealand sea lions and killer whales.

Giant shoal of shimmering sand eels๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’™โœจ

i often get asked what my favourite underwater experience is in the uk and honestly i can say swimming next to a shoal of hundreds of sandeels is up there!

these tiny little sand eels are incredibly important for our marine ecosystems๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’™ they're responsible for healthy populations of nationally & internationally important seabirds like atlantic puffins around our coasts as sand eels are their predominant diet. in fact research on seabirds shows that there is a strong link between breeding success and survival and the number of the sand eels they eat! other marine species also feed on sand eels such as harbour porpoises, terns, pollack and mackerel. the healthy eel grass beds around skomer island provide a protected suitable habitat for these fish and this is reflected all the way up the food chain!!

sand eels are not to be underestimated and also make for a beautiful little dip!! ps sorry for the shaky footage i was snorkelling and not diving!!!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŒŽโœจ

๐Ÿงdon't forget to keep an eye out for the smaller species whilst visiting our aquarium!

๐Ÿฆ€this is a porcelain crab who lives in our bubble-tip anemone enclosure with our breeding pair of clownfish!

๐Ÿฝ๏ธ there are two theories as to why they are called porcelain crabs. the first is that they are extremely delicate, the second is that the white edges of the crab resemble porcelain.

๐Ÿด their mouth parts have evolved into finely laced fans which are used for filter feeding!

Did you know?๐Ÿ’งโ €
โ €
temperate kelp forests don't typically come to mind for most when asked which marine ecosystems hold some of the greatest diversity in plant and animal species. โ €
โ €
however, kelp forests are incredibly important when it comes to providing resources, such as shelter and food, to a wide array of cold water inhabitants. thick, dense canopies of giant kelp (macrocystis pyrifera) along the coast of california and bull kelp (nereocystis luetkeana), found further north, are two dominant species of macro (big) algae that contribute to kelp forest habitats. โ €
โ €
unfortunately, kelp forests are not spared by the effects and stressors that come from increasing climate concerns. warming conditions inhibit kelp growth, as they depend on cold, nutrient rich waters to support their incredible growth rate of 3-5in (7-13cm) a day. under ideal conditions, giant kelp can grow up to 2ft a day!

Heniochus pleurotaenia, a pair of phantom bannerfish. a variant of their longfinned kin, panton bannerfish can be distinguished by their unique dorsal fins, which feather out along its spine, and by their noticeable horns sitting above their eyes. in my experience these fish aren't timid and make good subjects to photograph, and as always maintaining good buoyancy and a cautious approach will mean the difference between a great shot and one without a fish in it at all! #phantombannerfish #bannerfish #reeffish #coralreef #coralcommunity #scubadiving #diving #underwaterphotography #nauticam #sony #maldives #indopacific #indianocean #saveourseas #marineconservation #madbuoyancyskills

Happy national oyster day!!
this video shows just how important oysters are to the fragile ecosystem we all love! a single oyster can filter up to 50 gallons a day, removing harmful toxins and runoff and thus cleaning our coastal waters.
let’s put ‘em back!

๐Ÿ”Š beneath the ocean’s surface, a world of sound comes to life. for marine animals, sound functions as a primary sense; it is as essential as sight is for humans.

the dolphin’s vocalization repertoire reflects their high-speed social and tactical adaptations. they use mid frequency vocalizations for social interaction (within our human auditory band), and high frequency bio-sonar to perceive their surroundings and “see” their prey.

I talk about the importance of protecting our ocean a lot, and i’m super excited to announce that today i am launching an online coral reef conservation course with @extendedhorizons!!

we have been developing this course for the past few months and it’s full of information on coral anatomy, coral reef benefits, coral reef formation, and the threats (and solutions!) coral reefs are facing.

i’m super proud of this course, and for spreading more awareness around the issues our oceans are facing.

if this sounds like something you’d be interested in send me a message! would love to tell you more ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™

Marine science comes in so many different varieties... whilst i love to be in the water & diving, the reality is that i spend most of my research time in the lab sorting through muddy sediments & plants! ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒฑ
-
my phd broadly looks at how marine ecosystems can help to tackle climate change by storing lots of carbon (known as ‘blue carbon’) in their below-ground sediments. i’m trying to understand what environmental conditions allows one salt marsh to store more blue carbon than another salt marsh ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ. with that information, we can work towards improved conservation & restoration of these ecosystems and their climate change fighting powers, which will benefit everyone! no matter the type of marine science we do, we’re all united in working towards the goal of a better future for the big ol’ blue ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง
-
face masks are a new normal in labs at the moment, and to be honest, i’m pretty grateful to avoid that *distinctive* salt marsh smell (think along the lines of salty, fishy, and sometimes eggy mud...) ๐Ÿ˜ท

Tide pool tuesday๐Ÿ’งโ €
โ €
- vertical zonation of the rocky intertidal -โ €
โ €
this morning evolutionary ecologist @jtoy7 and i went tide pooling up along the central coast of california and observed an incredible array of intertidal invertebrates!โ €
โ €
when the tides are low and conditions allow, these ecosystems are uniquely accessible for scientific exploration. i want to talk a little bit more about patterns in "zonation" of these wonderful habitats.โ €
โ €
in ecology, "zonation" is defined as the distribution of organisms in a given environment governed by certain parameters that allow for their survival. in the case of the rocky intertidal, we can see distinct zonation occur due to environmental (exposure to heat and water) and predatory (sea star vs mussel) stressors. โ €
โ €
take a look at the photograph where i've outlined clear breaks in the zonation patterns between where the low-tide, mid-tide, and high-tide lines meet. you'll notice that soft anemones reside lower in the intertidal, as they don't really have any mechanism to retain water as well as mussels or limpets do, which reside closer to the top. the ocher stars are also fans of mussel dinners, so the lowest place where you'll see mussels grow tend to be the highest up sea stars will venture up into the rocky intertidal. โ €
โ €
this particular system is taught as a classical example of relationships between species and their environment in studies of marine ecology. โ €
โ €
when visiting tide pools, remember to always be mindful of where you step and take care not to disturb residing organisms. check your local tide tables to see when the next lowest tides are and have fun!! ๐Ÿ’™

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ’งโ €
โ €
i thought i’d start off with a little introduction - โ €
โ €
for those who don’t know me, my name is celine (my friends call me bean, hence the account name) and i’m a temperate marine ecologist and educator by trade from the pnw. most of my ocean ventures revolve around the puget sound area and the northern/central regions of the california coast.โ €
โ €
i’m more of a cool water gal (cold, dark oceans need love too!!) but i hope i can change your mind about some misconceptions about temperate oceans and highlight their incredible importance and beauty, among other wonderful things. โ €
โ €
so i’m here to share my experiences, knowledge, and deep appreciation for the ocean and blue planet we call home. thanks for tagging along! โ €
โ €
with deep love,โ €

When i found out on the iucn red list north atlantic right whale became critically endangered, it crushed my heart.

they survived the massacre and now their numbers are declining again. i have hope that their numbers will increase again.
