A clearer picture is painted with a growing body of research: noise pollution impacts the health and behavior of marine fish. Should marine aquarists pay more attention to noise levels within their aquariums?
In 2015 a team from the California Academy of Science set out on a expedition to the Philippines to explore the Coral Triangle's biological treasures. The
All proceeds fund grants for area Celtic non-profit organizations, college scholarships open to Celtic descendants, and education scholarships for students of Celtic Arts.
After successfully hosting the World Rowing Championships, Nathan Benderson Park welcomes attendees to the second annual Sarasota Celtic Music Festival
This is one of the few studies to explore how pollution from human activity impacts schooling behavior in fish.
Marine aquarists have all experienced it: Reef fishes that naturally school simply refuse to in captivity? Common theories are that the lack of predators or the relatively small size of aquariums discourage schooling. A new study finds that noise plays a big role. Noisy water = less cohesive schooli...
Awesome inhabitants for reef
Shrimp tanks are popular among freshwater aquarists, but marine aquarists largely view shrimps as afterthoughts. Why? It's not as if coral reefs aren't filled with colorful and interesting shrimps such as this newly described snapping shrimp.
Unstuff the Bus

Scientists have closely examined the brains of mantis shrimp and discovered a brain structure that was previously only found in insects. The reason why crustaceans and insects resemble each other is increasingly evident: they diverged from the same evolutionary ancestor.
There are now three more species added to the official record.
Three new big, beautiful crayfish species are described from neighboring streams found in the Kentucky Appalachians. Anyone up for an Appalachian crayfish biotope aquarium?
There’s no doubt about it, plastic pollution is a scourge of every ocean. Among the denizens of the sea that are affected are turtles, who can mistake plastic for jellyfish, one if their favorite delicacies. Scuba instructor Tyler Hart was diving with a student off Cooper Island the British Virgin I...

Researchers will use a zebrafish model to search for new therapeutics that could block drug-seeking behavior.
Zebrafish who were exposed to hydrocodone developed fiendish drug-seeking behavior as well as withdrawal when the drug was discontinued.
Foods that are colorful tend to yield more colorful fish. #CoralConnection will advise you on proper nutrition.
What fish eat not only determine how well they grow but also how colorful they become. Research helps us understand the optimum concentration of Astaxanthin (the reddish keto-carotenoid compound) in fish food.
