Newest NOAA fisheries survey ship begins West Coast and Alaska whale survey
NOAA's newest research ship, the Reuben Lasker, departed San Diego this week on its first scientific mission, which includes surveying gray whales along the West Coast. The survey will also search the Gulf of Alaska for right whales, among the most rare and endangered whales on Earth. The expedition is a collaboration between the Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California, and Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle.

To avoid dangerous shark encounters, information trumps culling
California scientists found that the risk of white shark attack for individual ocean users in California has fallen strikingly, by over 91 percent, since 1950, in a study to be published online ahead of print in the Ecological Society of America's journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment later this month. Information that empowers ocean users to avoid the large predators is far more effective for public safety than culling sharks.
