Take a Breath... Better Make it a Big One
Price: Free! Words: 8,150. Language: English. Published: January 8, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling
'take a breath' explores both the thrill and a smattering of the science associated with breath-hold diving, but it is definitely not a ‘How-To’ guide. Indeed, some of the exploits described could be viewed as risky bordering on downright stupid, so 'How-Not-To' is a more accurate description.

Kim and the Mote crew have captured, documented and tagged over 300 rays in the last 4 years.

I want to spend more time watching redlip blennies. They mate beginning at first light in two week cycles that start ten days before the full moon. The mating sessions last about three hours each morning, and males generally have female visitors every day. Sometimes the same females come back, but usually there are different mixes among males and females.
Damselfish May Be More Aggressive Than You Think

How aggressive are damselfish, pound for pound? As it turns out, divers invading their space is not the only thing damselfish exhibit aggression over. I don’t blame them for defending their territory when I’m trying to get a shot. That’s common, and can be comical. The species in our waters vary in size, color and behavior. There is an excellent, detailed chapter on all the damselfish species.
Spadefish Have to Dig Their Way Out of a Hole

Spadefish are the only species of its family that reside in the Western Atlantic. In the Pacific there are at least six species, where they are commonly known as batfish. While they are common in the Keys, in other parts of the Caribbean they are not as prevalent. I’ve seen schools numbering in the hundreds from Molasses up to Carysfort. One of the largest schools I’ve seen was on Deep French.
Wrasses: the Smartest Fish?

Wrasses are a large and diverse family, and seem to be everywhere. They are quick and colorful. Perhaps some of the most vibrant colors on our reefs belong to the family of wrasses. Worldwide there are over five hundred species of wrasse. Here we have about twenty. Most species are carnivorous, feeding on small crustaceans.
This Goat Is a Hero

Classified as a “nuclear” species, goatfish truly play a leadership role. Other species are attracted to the substratum-disturbing foraging. And when several goatfish are involved in the fray, the groupies increase in number and diversity. Goatfish groups attract up to six follower species. While many of the follower species eat the same food, the goatfish don’t seem to mind.
All Puffed Up
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,650. Language: English. Published: July 16, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
Puffers are a group of fish I like to shoot, especially the big ones. They have a shy, jovial personality. At least they always look like they are smiling. Puffers are related to boxfish, and are also toxic, but in a different way. I found references to two toxins, tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX), which are nerve agents. They are chemically distinct, but act on the nervous system similarly.
A Whale of a Good Time (Maybe)
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,740. Language: English. Published: July 9, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
As I stood on the boat with my morning coffee and watched the people pile in the boats and head out to the whale sharks, my immediate reaction was “we are in a whale shark theme park”. I believe it’s become more about the peso than the whale shark. I can’t blame them for developing the tourism business, but is there a balance that can be reached? This has spawned a great deal of controversy.
Let's Wake Up an Eel and Go Hunting
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,780. Language: English. Published: June 25, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
While the majority of observations during the day are while eels are resting or on a cleaning station, a few times I have seen an eel coupled with a grouper. The first time I saw it was on the Winch Hole. A graysby came to a stop on a pile of rubble, and a goldentail came out from its lair. At first they just sort of looked at each other, then came cheek to cheek, touched, and took off together.
Hogfish Heaven?
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,740. Language: English. Published: June 18, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
Hogfish got their name because they root around the sea floor, like a hog roots around the barnyard. I have been following the size limit discussions for the last several years, and to me the essential point is this: if we don’t increase the size limit and let them grow another year or two, the chances of maintaining a sustainable fishery may be a huge issue in the future.

The variability of salinity levels in Florida Bay is important to the food chain. What does this have to do with glass minnows? Well, everything. He examined the relationship between mesozooplankton, salinity and bay anchovies. The ecological implications center on the the relationship between salinity, mesozooplankton and bay anchovies. Future changes in salinity could have significant effects.
