Marine Biology and Conservation Blog
I write for a marine biology and conservation blog called Southern Fried Science. The other author and myself are both marine biology graduate students- I study sharks and he studies the deep sea. The blog is a way for us to communicate and interact with the public, as well as other scientists and conservationists. We always welcome comments and will respond to any question left in the comments section of any post. Some posts are simple announcements of recent developments in the marine conservation world, others are designed to generate discussion about a "hot topic" in environmentalism. Please check it out, we'd love to see what you think of our project!

Some noteworthy posts include a description of how "dolphin safe" tuna is bad for sharks, sea turtles, and sea birds (this won second place in an internet wide science writing contest and resulted in an NPR interview), an interview with the Senior Science Editor of the Discovery Channel about how sharks are portrayed in Shark Week (readers submitted the questions), and "Four Things Everyone Needs to Know About Sharks" (an informative post that is being made into a conservation brochure).

I knew "dolphin safe" was a scam!

This is a cool site. Kinda funny that I read the write up, and thought, "I should send this to that shark guy," then I saw who'd posted it.

This is a neat blog, a good mix of opinions stuff, goofy photos and stuff about fish. You guys have a lot of people commenting, it seems like. Nice going.

Hi, I first read your blog when it got linked from one of the ScienceBlog blogs I read :) You have interesting posts. I don't have much to *say* about them, but interesting nonetheless.
