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!.

Dissecting the ocean's unseen waves to learn where the heat, energy and nutrients go
Researchers from the Office of Naval Research's multi-institutional Internal Waves In Straits Experiment -- including from Princeton University -- have published the first 'cradle-to-grave' model of internal waves, which are subsurface ocean displacements recognized as essential to the distribution of nutrients and heat. The researchers modeled the internal waves that move through the Luzon Strait between southern Taiwan and the Philippine island of Luzon.

Evolution in action: Mate competition weeds out GM fish from population
Purdue University research found that wild-type zebrafish consistently beat out genetically modified Glofish in competition for female mates, an advantage that led to the disappearance of the transgene from the fish population over time. The study, the first to demonstrate evolutionary outcomes in the laboratory, showed that mate competition trumps mate choice in determining natural selection.

Fish born in larger groups develop more social skills and a different brain 'architecture'
New research on a highly social fish shows that those reared in larger social groups from the earliest stage of life develop increased social skills and a brain shape, or 'neuroplasticity,' which lingers into the later life of the fish.

Tropical disturbance in the North Atlantic likely to develop
Although the non-tropical low pressure system in the North Atlantic has moved little during the past several hours it has become better defined with increasing organization of the associated thunderstorm activity.

Micronesia warnings cancelled for Noul, Philippines next up
Typhoon Noul is currently moving west and will veer west-northwest, then later northwest. It is predicted that the storm will steadily intensify to 125 knots over the next three days. The projected trajectory will see Noul pass northeast of the Philippine Islands, whilst veering north towards Taiwan.
