Many once-endangered marine species have reached recovery levels that may warrant them coming off of the endangered species list. This recovery is presenting new challenges however as human communities sometimes struggle to adapt to their sudden return. Read more on EurekAlert!.

Video: Gas hydrates found in Arctic continental shelf sediments behave like ice with a very notable exception: they burn! Check out a video of CAGE researchers demonstrating here!

Warmer, lower-oxygen oceans will shift marine habitats
Warming temperatures and decreasing levels of dissolved oxygen will act together to create metabolic stress for marine animals. Habitats will shift to places in the ocean where the oxygen supply can meet the animals' increasing future needs.

New study uncovers why some threatened corals swap 'algae' partners
A new research study showed why threatened Caribbean star corals sometimes swap partners to help them recover from bleaching events. The findings are important to understand the fate of coral reefs as ocean waters warm due to climate change.

Ocean Modeling Forum Pacific Herring Summit
Ocean Modeling Forum to bring human element to herring fishery, others
The Ocean Modeling Forum, a collaboration between the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at University of Washington and NOAA Fisheries, is trying something very rare -- bringing together multiple science models and people who care about a particular ocean resource or fishery to decide what's most important for its vitality and the communities it serves. The group will kick off its second project June 8-10 in Richmond, British Columbia, with a summit focusing on the Pacific herring fishery.

Differences in metabolic rates of exploited and unexploited fish populations
Hessenauer and Vokoun, both of the Department of Natural Resources and the Environmnet at the University of Connecticut compared populations of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) taken from unexploited reference populations with those from inland recreational fisheries. Results suggest recreational angling may act as evolutionary force influencing metabolic rates.

Sudden draining of glacial lakes explained
In 2008 scientists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the University of Washington documented for the first time how the icy bottoms of lakes atop the Greenland Ice Sheet can crack open suddenly -- draining the lakes completely within hours and sending torrents of water to the base of the ice sheet thousands of feet below. Now they have found a surprising mechanism that triggers the cracks.
