466 - Frost on the Pumpkin

Once again we have a backload of episodes we have neglicted to upload. They are coming, but we wanted to start with the freshes ones first. They taste better. http://www.undercurrent.org/elist/?m=757&uid=d0ae638873eb6a274c59ae5b5d33a98c&p=view&pi=ViewBrowserPlugin Tick a Box and Save a Life. Twenty-two people die every day in the United States waiting for a kidney transplant, most waiting 7 to 9 years. For some, this may be an unpleasant subject, but thousands of people could live many years if they could get the organs of a healthy deceased person. Divers are generally healthy folks who, if they, unfortunately, have a fatal diving accident, would enable others to carry on. Please click here to understand how, someday, even if it’s many, many years from now, you might contribute to someone else’s future. - Via Undercurrent Removal of Georgia shipwreck delayed again over anchor issue https://www.timesleaderonline.com/news/business/2020/10/removal-of-georgia-shipwreck-delayed-again-over-anchor-issue/ Head-turning crane spurs dive into shipwreck history https://www.orlandosentinel.com/features/os-fe-joy-wallace-dickinson-20201004-m5kq3bljlnhvpp4cd7c5sr3tje-story.html?outputType=amp Indonesia Adopts Guidelines to Make Dive Safer During Pandemic https://jakartaglobe.id/lifestyle/indonesia-adopts-guidelines-to-make-dive-safer-during-pandemic How fish and other aquatic species utilize Great Lakes shipwrecks https://www.greatlakesnow.org/2020/10/shipwreck-ecosystem-fish-great-lakes-species/ Swimming Squid Robot https://futurism.com/the-byte/swimming-squid-robot-looks-amazing ...

461 - Two Shipwrecks Identified with Kevin Ailes

Galapagos Marine Life in Danger. These are lights from the 265-vessel Chinese fishing fleet that threatens the Galapagos. The boats are now operating at the edge of the protected marine reserve taking fish and sharks from the major migration route between Cocos and Malpelo, and the world is up in arms about it. The fleet of Chinese “ghost ships” were falsely reporting their location within New Zealand waters while they fished off the Galapagos Islands. Six of the fleet are transmitting false information via their Automatic Identification System transponders. The Ecuadorian Navy has deployed its limited fleet to protecting the reserve but with little hope of stopping the fishing and protecting the animals traveling past. This includes the largest female whale sharks In 2018, scientists equipped with Thruster units on their scuba tanks, managed to make ultra-sound recordings on the distended bellies of three of these pregnant giants, aiming to unravel one of the ocean’s great mysteries -- where do they give birth? But, more research is needed to untangle the significance of the area to whale shark reproduction. “Unchecked Chinese fishing just on the edge of the protected zone is ruining Ecuador’s efforts to protect marine life in the Galápagos,” the former Quito mayor Roque Sevilla has said.
