  • True Facts:The Anglerfish

    21 May 2015 | 6:33 pm
    The anglerfish is so called because of its method of predation. This is the fish that goes fishing. It has a long, modified dorsal fin spine sprouting from the middle of its head that ends in a fleshy growth that can move and wiggle to resemble another animal. In some deep sea anglerfish this deadly bait can even emit light (bioluminescence). Passing predators who think they’ve found an easy meal only need to touch the bait to find out they’re the main course.

This is not that grim dark era, so a sea turtle found with a broken jaw was rescued and then brought to Pamukkale University’s Sea Turtle Research, Rescue and Rehabilitation center in Denizli, Turkey. Thanks to a collaboration with Turkish company Btech Innovation, the turtle received a custom-designed, 3D-printed titanium jaw.

  • Beware the Deadly Beauty of the Marbled Cone Snail

    Creedence Gerlach
    26 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    The unique marbled cone snail is found from the southern tip of India to Okinawa, Japan, and southeast to New Caledonia and Samoa. It feeds on other snails, including some within its own species. When it attacks its prey, it sticks out its long white proboscis to shoot a poison-laden harpoon, sometimes attacking its prey multiple times over. The prey becomes paralyzed and its muscles begin to relax irreversibly. Once the prey lies flaccid outside its shell, the snail can begin to devour it. The species is found in fairly shallow water, typically on coral reef platforms or lagoon pinnacles, as…

  • The History of Scuba Diving

    Creedence Gerlach
    21 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    Freediving is as ancient an activity as humanity itself, and the predecessor to scuba diving. More than any other sport, freediving is based on old subconscious reflexes written in the human.For the first nine months of our lives, we humans exist in an aquatic environment very similar to seawater. If a human infant is submerged underwater, it instinctively holds its breath for up to 40 seconds while making swimming motions, although we seem to lose this ability as soon as we commence walking. Awakening these reflexes is one of the most important elements of freediving, thus giving humans…

  • Dive Site: Black Coral Garden, Curacao

    Shelley Collett
    29 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Named for the rare and nearly extinct black corals, the west end dive site features black-coral trees, sea fans and bottlebrush. The skeletons of black corals are dark; hence the description as ‘black,’ but the polyps have varying colors — red, white, orange, green and yellow. Since they lack symbiotic algae, black corals can be found thousands of feet deep. This dive is generally done parallel with the wall, as an out-and-back to the boat. It’s an easy dive site, with little to no current to speak of when we dove it. As with most wall dives, it’s easy to slip down too deep while…

    28 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    It has famously been said that we know more about space than we do about the oceans, and it’s certainly true that the marine environment harbors many secrets and mysteries that we have yet to unravel. This lack of certainty has led to the birth of many myths regarding the ocean’s creatures — some of which are true, and some of which are pure fabrication. This article takes a look at five of those myths in an effort to separate fact from fiction. Sharks are attracted by human urine Of the many myths connected to sharks, one of the most enduring is that they are attracted by the smell of…
  • Dive Site: Port Nelson/Bacardi Bar, New Providence, Nassau, Bahamas

    27 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Just 6 miles from the southwestern shore of New Providence on the sloping edge of the Great Bahama Bank, is the last ship commissioned by the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, before the Bahamas gained its independence from Great Britain in 1973. The Port Nelson proudly sits facing the Tongue of the Ocean, a sea trench running north to south along the edge of the Great Bahama Bank, a final remembrance of an era gone by. Although it has weathered many a storm, this artificial reef makes the backdrop for a truly superb dive. The dramatic effect of this spot is only enhanced by the location of the…
  • 8 Cutest Marine Animals

    26 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    8 Cutest Marine Animals By Scuba Diver Life Cuteness might be subjective but I think we can all agree that these 8 marine animals have cuteness down pat. Piglet Squid By Scuba Diver Life The banded piglet squid is only around 3.9 inches (100 mm) long once matured, and although I think the adults look more like confused cows with dreadlocks, it’s the tiny babies that win on the cute front. But you'll be hard pressed as a scuba diver to find one, as they live between 328 to 656 feet (100 to 200m) deep. Glaucus atlanticus By Scuba Diver Life These small nudibranchs are also known as sea…

    a new life in the sea

  • NASA's Ocean Worlds Exploration Program

    25 May 2015 | 6:10 pm
    News of a recent NASA proposed budget to the House Appropriations Committee crossed my desk just this week, and while the vision is exciting, I'm somewhat disturbed.The punchline of the proposed Ocean Worlds Exploration Program includes ambitious life-seeking missions to the watery worlds of Europa, Enceladus, and Titan, with program development tipping well over the $100 MM mark. I, perhaps more than anyone, am excited about the pursuit of discovering new extraterrestrial life in our universe, but I have been choking on these massive NASA investments when we are in the wake of virtually…
  • Trapped Under the Sea | a review

    20 May 2015 | 11:30 am
    With my recent travel schedules I've managed to do some much needed catch up  on my reading list, and just turned the last page of Neil Swidey's 'Trapped Under the Sea'. The book recounts the tragic event involving the loss of two divers during the Deer Island outfall tunnel project in Boston several years ago.The book's subject matter was captivating given my own line of work, and particularly my recent work with these types of tunneling projects. The descriptions of the personnel, the equipment, the decision making, and the aquatic lifestyle by those entrenched in the trade is all dead…

    Well, I played hookie this Monday morning and went for a dive. Guilty? Heck no...I call it good strategy in that I worked through the weekend so was due for a break and skipped the weekend dive site crowds in favor of the very still and quiet Monday morning. Not a soul in sight.For the last several years I've been on a bit of a research and development hook to make things 'better' - more productive, more efficient, safer, and so on. With that comes a lot of shop time, and less in-water time, so I've made it my 2015 resolution to do a lot more diving this season...and not work diving, but…

    9 May 2015 | 5:57 pm
    For sanity's sake and practice of good form, I've been doing my absolute best to commit a half a day each weekend to going diving. Call it 'my time' to decompress from terra firma while striving to maintain all of the acute senses and perceptions that are needed to push this life aquatic just a bit further ahead.Through these weekend excursions I've found some reignited enthusiasm for local exploration. It's easy to get caught up in the idea of needing to travel to some exotic locale to see or experience something new, but as I've been discussing my recent dives with colleagues, it's dawned…

    I found it rather fitting today to find myself fielding emails about celebrating Earth Day using an iPhone and while doing 'fieldwork' in the heart of the city of Boston. I was forced to find some appreciation of the gray and brown, rather than green, and came to realize that he world around us is very much a product of our lives and lifestyles.Today's operation was supporting some very limited below grade excursions to investigate a partially flooded culvert. Despite city plans and blueprints, there are outstanding questions about where this thing runs, what it feeds, and what exactly feeds…

    Read on the webWhen you come face to face with a frogfish for the first time, you will probably be rather confused, not knowing whether you are looking at a land animal, a fish, or some alien. Some may wonder whether this creature would be better fit in a horror movie than on the seabed. Diving With It Regardless of this, many divers, especially underwater photographers, have a particular interest in this creature, not just because of its extravagant appearance, but mainly due to the wide variety of its color, size and morphology.

Built in 1908, Baron Gautsch was an Austrian passenger ship which sailed the Adriatic from Kotor to Trieste.

According to historians, slave traders from America commonly continued on to Europe on their ships to trade ivory tusks and other valuable items.

Given all of the problems we talked about in the last chapter, how can we expect to take pictures that we can be proud of when scuba diving Key Largo? How can we overcome the loss of light and color? There are two answers to this question. One is to take the best possible picture using the available light, and the other is to use a “flash”. Using a “flash” is generally referred to as using a strobe in underwater photography. This chapter will concentrate on using available light.  Available Light The last chapter…

I know how to use a camera – I’ve been taking pictures for years without any problems. Well, yes, but several things make underwater photography especially challenging. Light levels in the underwater water world are much lower than we are used to at the surface. There are several reasons for this. First of all, clouds or haze can reduce the amount of light hitting the surface of the ocean.  So, on a cloudy day, things will appear much…
