Check out our latest blog that tells what happened after a young white shark washed ashore on a Long Island beach this summer.
Turns out there is a lot we don’t know about great white sharks. Safina Center Fellow Dr. Demian Chapman, National Marine Fisheries Scientists and Stony Brook University students had the rare opportunity to learn first hand about this threatened shark species.
Will We Save:
Gulf of Maine Cod?
A few weeks ago, the situation for New England’s iconic Atlantic cod went from bad to dismal.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the new assessment for Gulf of Maine cod shows that the already depleted population has declined to a mere 3-4% of a sustainable abundance level. This is down from previous cod abundance estimates in 2011 of 12-18% of a sustainable level. Scientists say that surveys of cod show abundance is at an all-time low. And scientists found very few young cod–another bad sign.
