I am today’s host, Andrew Kornblatt, from the Online Ocean Symposium.

The +Online Ocean Symposium is increasing and expanding attention to the oceans through the use of Google+ Hangouts on Air for conversations in ocean advocacy and science.

Here are today’s stories:

The Pentagon Prepares for Climate Change Around the World
http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/the-pentagon-prepares-for-climate-change-around-the-world/

The Pentagon made the case Wednesday that the locations in the world most prone to instability and bloodshed also are the ones where climate change has the greatest impact, and laid out details about how top regional commanders are preparing for it.

Robotic Sea Gliders Are Game Changers for Ocean Surveying, Data Collection
http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/robotic-seagliders-are-game-changers-for-ocean-surveying-data-collection/

Robotic underwater Seagliders used by the Oban-based Scottish Association for Marine Science have now gathered the equivalent of five years of oceanographic data, most of which was collected in the past 18 months. This milestone, reached this week, highlights a major change in how marine scientists collect information such as sea temperature, salinity, pressure and oxygen, as the six-feet-long Seagliders can spend months at sea collecting data that contributes to our understanding of climate change.

Coast Guard Search Continues for Missing South Florida Teens
http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/coast-guard-search-continues-for-missing-south-florida-teens/

The ocean search for two missing South Florida teens continues unabated, now as far north as Charleston, S.C. Four Coast Guard cutters, two C-130 aircraft, a Navy airplane and officials with the Georgia Department of Natural Resource remain on the lookout from Jacksonville north, Coast Guard spokesman Anthony Soto said mid-day Wednesday. By Wednesday night, the Coast Guard's website said search efforts had covered nearly 53,000 square miles.

Fishing for Food, Many Immigrants and Low-Income Families Unaware of Mercury Warnings
http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/fishing-for-food-many-immigrants-and-low-income-families-unaware-of-fish-mercury-warnings/

Most health advisories are posted directly on packages, like tobacco and alcohol, or displayed on billboard or TV ads. Iowa, like most states, posts information on its websites, and that's where the warnings stop. Mercury, which occurs naturally in fish, seeps into waterways everywhere, with some local hotspots scattered across the country linked to coal-burning power plants, old mines or industries. By primarily relying on wild-caught fish for sustenance, low-income families are missing the warnings.

Ocean Is a Wild West Where Impunity and Lawlessness Rule
http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/ocean-is-like-wild-west-where-impunity-and-lawlessness-rule/

All Things Considered's Audie Cornish spoke to reporter Urbina about his four-part investigation, which wrapped up Tuesday. Urbina described his time on a Thai fishing ship — a purse seiner targeting mostly jack mackerel and herring – and explains why the ocean is essentially like the “Wild West.”

More Than 600 Sea Turtle Hatchlings Released Into Ocean

It was a turtle emancipation.

Over 600 baby sea turtles got a second chance at life Monday when they were released into the ocean off of Boca Raton by Ft. Lauderdale Coast Guard and local nature center officials.

With the odds against them — only about 1 in 1,000 sea turtles survive to adulthood — the hatchlings had missed their instinctual dash to the ocean and had been collected after routine beach nest inspections by the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton.

At a UNESCO climate conference last week, scientists declared (once again) that climate change is already happening. The evidence is our wacky weather—even Paris, where the conference was held, was broiling in a historic heatwave. But the biggest red flag is the rise in peak global mean temperatures: Which means rising sea levels will almost certainly be a reality, too.

Other bears, especially Kodiaks are known to dive as well. It is a survival tool. It does make me curious about how far the Polar Bears can dive though, because Kodiaks usually stick to rivers and inlets (shallow dives).

While the beluga sturgeon is popular for its fillets, its eggs, known as "true caviar," are regarded as a delicacy. Native to the Caspian Sea, these ancient fish can grow to 15 feet in length, weigh more than a ton and live to be 100 years old. Due to the popularity of their eggs, they're heavily overfished -- typically with gill nets. This particularly problematic because this species that doesn't reach sexual maturity until 20 or 25 years of age. In addition to fishing pressures, beluga sturgeon suffer from habitat reduction, having lost 90 percent of their historic spawning grounds over the past several decades. Because of these pressures, the IUCN classified the beluga sturgeon as endangered, and the population is expected to continue its decline.

Moray eels are cosmopolitan eels of the family Muraenidae. The approximately 200 species in 15 genera are almost exclusively marine, but several species are regularly seen in brackish water and a few, for example the freshwater moray (Gymnothorax polyuranodon) can sometimes be found in freshwater. With a maximum length of 11.5 centimetres (4.5 in), the smallest moray is likely the Snyder's moray (Anarchias leucurus), while the longest species, the slender giant moray (Strophidon sathete) reaches up to 4 m (13 ft). The largest in terms of total mass is the giant moray (Gymnothorax javanicus), which reaches 3 m (9.8 ft) in length and 30 kg (66 lb) in weight.
