Tea with a few Asterionellopsis! This beautiful diatom is in the order of Bacillariales. The cells can join chains around the valve faces and spiral. I took this picture this morning from a zooplankton tow from North Carolina. Though plankton may be tiny, they have a large impact on the global carbon and oxygen cycling. As these phytoplankton use their chloroplasts for photosynthesis, they can contribute more than 50% to the world's oxygen.

Our dolphin introductions continue! Meet Frolic and his mom, Foxy.

Frolic was born in 2015. Since then, we've seen him 10 times always with his mom. Calves stay with their moms for a few years while they nurse and learn to hunt. Frolic will start to gain his independence in the coming year and start hanging out with other little juvenile males, especially if Foxy gets pregnant.

Blood Parrot Cichlid or
( Amphilophus Citrinellus )
.
They are very compatable for a community tank as they are peaceful, curious and they interact well with their owners after some time of getting to know them.

The Waved Albatross (Phoebastria irrorate) also known as the Galápagos albatross, breeding primarily on Española Island in the Galápagos Islands and spending their time off the coast of Peru and Ecuador during non-breeding seasons. The only species of albatross that breeds at the equator. They are the largest bird in the archipelago, with a wingspan of almost 8 ft (2.4m)! Extremely loyal birds, when they find a mate they will stay together and raise their chicks until one of them dies. •
Unfortunately, 19 out of the world's 22 species of Albatross are endangered or vulnerable to extinction largely due to fishing. The primary food sources of the Waved Albatross are fish, squid, and crustaceans. Due to this, these birds often get into trouble with fishing gear and get caught in lines, which usually has a fatal ending. There are alternative bird-friendly fishing techniques that have been proven to significantly reduce the amount of seabird bycatch, we just need more fishermen to adopt these methods, in hopes of saving these creatures. •

Curious fact: Jelly Blubbers been trialled for aquaculture and may one day be farmed for human food. In Asia, this venomous jelly is considered a culinary delicacy. This venomous jelly can be safely eaten once it's been correctly dried and processed. The texture is reportedly crispy, yet elastic—hence the name "rubber band salad" for a dish sold in China.

This slug is actually solar powered! ☀️☀️☀️☀️Members of the Elysia chlorotica species live along the Atlantic seaboard of the US, and a diet of algae allows these slugs to "steal" chloroplasts for their own use. This sea slug stores the chloroplasts in the cells that line its gut, and researchers have found that Young E. chlorotica, when fed with algae for two weeks, could survive for the rest of their year-long lives without eating.

The Changemakers At Sea competition is bringing together students to come up with #solutions to single-use #plasticpollution. Together with @alnitakmission @asociacion_ondine and @ashokaspain we will give students the chance to fight marine debris on their own terms.

Let’s go back to legend and myths regarding these beautiful animals!
—————————
They are really friendly animals, and this dude seemed to appreciate being taken in a picture by @samlawrencephoto
—————————
Oceanfact:
Because of their fusiform body, dugongs have inspired the most incredible mermaid tales! Nowadays, they still play a strong role in some part of the globe’s societies.. In Kenya, for instance, they are called the “Queen of the Sea”, as they used to be the main character of local legends. In Philippines they are thought to bring back luck, so that parts of them are used to ward against evil spirits. Dugong’s tears are also powerful ingredients in the preparation of love potions in some area of Thailand and in Indonesia they are considered as the reincarnation of womans.
Incredible how marine creatures can inspire human belief, bringing significance just with their presence, isn’t it? But these are only tales and we have to try to defend them from current hunting!
Do you want to know more about living Sirenians 🧜‍♀️? Stay tuned, more interesting posts are coming tomorrow!

Crystal clear diving this week 🤩🤩 #researchlife #underwaterparadise #marinebiology #barbados #coral #scubagirl
I was so happy to find this little guy while diving yesterday. Diadema antillarum or long spined sea urchin are endangered. The sea urchin die off in 1983 is thought to have been caused by an unknown type of disease, and has been linked to a major growth in many types of algae. Because of the negative effects of this on the coral reefs, other species like fish were also affected as they lost a major source of food and protection. I spent this summer researching theses creatures and will share more with you soon.

Cruising through the week! 🐢💙🌊 #SeaTurtleCamp
An amazing encounter with this small-eye stingray today made me very excited 🤗. These stingrays are very elusive and rare to encounter while diving. I have only seen a handful since living in Mozambique and each time it's a very special moment for me. They can grow larger than 2m and have a specific spot pattern that can be used for photo identification. Any elasmobranch excites me, but this is definitely on the top of the list! 🦈

Pyromaia tuberculata or Tuberculate pear crab

Native to the Pacific coast of North America, this species has been introduced to Japan, New Zealand, southern Australia, Brazil and Argentina. Its introduction probably took place in ballast water.

In some regions where it was introduced, it was found to be an important food source for native fishes, indirectly altering the structure of the fish community.

Devil rays are the only vertebrates that have three pairs of working limbs: pectoral fins, pelvic fins and cephalic fins. The latter is where they get their name from; when not feeding, their cephalic fins are curled and point forward and down, giving the appearance of devil horns.

This is the catamaran Regina Australe. It came to Puerto Madryn on 2012 and since then has sailed inside the Nuevo Gulf with a fixed way on day-trips touring. On April 4th of 2015 it was intentionally beached for hull-cleaning.

The Regina Australe works as a study model and is part of the doctoral research of GEAC's PHD candidate Karen Castro who studies how little and medium ships contribute to the regional dispersion of marine exotic species.

Wanna know more about her research? Then you must come to the 10th edition of the International Conference of Marine Bioinvasions that will be held from 16th to 18th of October 2018. 
We will be waiting for you!

Let’s go back diving with these beauties!

Thanks to @savethedugong for the implication and to @bernd_neeser for the beautiful shot!

Oceanfact: Dugongs have been hunted for thousands of years, and some of their closest species (such as the Steller’s sea cow) were hunted until their extinction.
The reason why they keep being hunted lies in the use of parts of their body for food, medicine and decoration.
Humans seem to never learn, and some population are nowadays threatened of extinction. Such are considered for the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), and the trade of derived products are limited or ban by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Another big anthropogenic threat is the habitat degradation. Living for more than 70 years and having a slow reproduction rate, these animals really need a special care!

Do you like as well these fatty animals? Spread the word and help scientists to protect these incredible animals!

'Sweet lips three' 
Three Diagonally Banded Sweetlips watch me closely from under a coral ledge on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. 
Sweetlips are confident and curious fish. Watching intently as you approach. Their huge eyes seem to bore through you. The slower and calmer you are the more relaxed these large and magnificent fish will be. They still won't take their eyes off you though!

Over 200 Royal Turtles are being cared for at FiA and WCS’ Koh Kong Reptile Conservation Center, and communities are essential to the turtles survival after they are released into the Sre Ambel River.

Recently U.S. Forest Service, Wildlife Conservation Society, and the Fisheries Administration (FiA) consulted communities along the Sre Ambel River to explore establishing a community fishery that would enhance local income generation and protect the Royal Turtle, Cambodia’s national reptile.

Spiny Devilfish. Their pectoral fins are usually folded away but can be unfolded in order to scare predators away or as swimming helpers. Usually it is not swimming but crawling through the sand using the 2 most caudal spines of the pectoral fins.
