This is so cool -- I love even more that Sylvia Earle was the first to observe it.
 
Check out this incredible underwater phenomenon!
The first color HD video of deep-ocean bioluminescence in Hawaiian bamboo corals faithfully shows the behaviors described by Oceanographer Sylvia Earle and others decades ago — until now nev…

The creators hope it becomes a "jumping-off point for some very real discussions, debates and resolves."

I can't get over this. It's so great on so many levels.

That's a very diplomatic answer, but... delish is delish!

Waaaah! Where's mine?
 
The health and changing characteristics of coastal marine life such as kelp forests, mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs are significantly affected by activities that occur at sizes a thousand times smaller than a millimetre.
Marine scientists from Israel and California have developed a microscope that for the first time provides a window into the small scale behaviour of marine life.

I <3 the Guardian. The linked commentary in Science Careers is deafeningly quiet about their sexist gaffe from a few years ago.
 
Structural Barriers for Women in Science
" But the sad fact is it is much easier to say 'we need more women in science' than it is to stand up, look the (mostly male) leaders in science and politicians in the eye and say: 'Your laboratories, hiring procedures, grant-allocating processes and publishing routines are all sexist, and this results in science and technologies that aren’t good for at least half the population. Why have you allowed this to continue for so long?'"

This is a bit of a well-duh, but at least someone quantified it.

(Also, hooray for completely unrelated and random stock photo -- good job Discovery News editors! Let me guess, your site is programmed with robots that grab random photos of infants when the keywords are "microplastics", "poop" and "zooplankton". Your natalist, asprocentrist agenda is a success!)

This is a nominal gesture but accountability has to start somewhere.
 
Last week, the president signed the Port State Measures Agreement, which empowers officials to prohibit foreign vessels suspected of illegal fishing from receiving port services and access. The United States became the 20th country to ratify the pact.
President Obama will close a loophole this week that allowed fish caught by forced labor into the American market, part of a flurry of recent actions to address lawlessness at sea.
