It's a squid, it's an octopus, it's ... a mystery from the deep. What appears to be a
half-squid, half-octopus specimen found off Keahole Point on the Big Island remains unidentified today and could
possibly be a new species, said local biologists. The specimen was found caught in a filter in one of Natural Energy
Laboratory of Hawaii Authority's deep-sea water pipelines last week. The pipeline, which runs 3,000 feet deep, sucks up
cold, deep-sea water for the tenants of the natural energy lab. "When we first saw it, I was really delighted because it
was new and alive," said Jan War, operations manager at NELHA. "I've never seen anything like that." Click

U.S. Rep. Vern Ehlers knew he had his work cut out for him during his quest for federal
funding to help study the invasive zebra mussel in the Great Lakes. Another congressman declared he opposed the bill.
"He said, 'I will not vote to appropriate money to study the muscles of zebras,'" Ehlers, a Grand Rapids Republican and
former scientist, recounted. "A little light went off in my head that this was going to take some education. I just
assumed that everyone in the country know how valuable the Great Lakes were." A new Michigan law, promoted by state Sen.

When the New York Aquarium first opened in Coney Island, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president,
a Hershey bar cost five cents and thrill seekers Mark Brier and Norman Davis were among the first ticket holders to
venture into a brand new land of happy sea lions and scary sharks. Fifty years later, Brier and Davis revisited the
world-famous marine Mecca at West 8th Street and Surf Avenue to help celebrate its golden anniversary with a season-long
revel, jumpstarted by a dedication ribbon-cutting ceremony, a program of special attractions and amusements, plus an
appearance by Brooklyn-born Hollywood actor-director John Turturro. Hula-hooping students from Public School 100, 2951
West 3rd Street, staged a show of their own in front of a group of well-wishers, including local politicians, aquarium
retirees and other members of the community. The ribbon cutting, conducted at the Aquarium’s Boardwalk entrance, was
followed by a special Aquatheater show. For information about the New York Aquarium’s summer program, visit

In a bid to showcase Nigeria’s rich possession of fishes that cannot be found anywhere in
the world, Oladipo Bali, lawyer cum businessman, CEO of Ambal Seaworld decided to set up fish pond in Nigeria to educate

easy getting all these species from their natural habitats and preserve, make business out of them and ultimately to
show the world the fish heritage of Nigeria. Click
A warning for some Florida boaters: be on the lookout for giant jumping fish. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission said Gulf Sturgeon are leaping out of the Suwannee River and causing serious harm to
boaters. A 6-year-old girl broke her leg after being hit by a fish. Officials said sturgeons, which are native to the
Gulf of Mexico, can grow up to eight feet and weigh as much as 200 pounds. "I would like the public to know, go slow out
here. Be aware, boat together, wear you're pfd, and be very, very aware of you're surroundings and what's going on.
Impacts with these fish are dangerous. They've resulted in a lot of serious injuries. Be aware go slow, said Major Bruce
Hamlin, of the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Sturgeons are a protected species and are of special concern under state
law, because the Suwannee River is the last natural river in Florida the fish are able to thrive in. Click
The UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center on Friday kicked off
the renovation of its newest research center in a sleepy Lake Forest building that has stood solid through nearly 90
Lake Tahoe winters and summers. The UC Davis project will breathe new life into a historical landmark. The former fish
hatchery, built in the 1920s, will soon house a cutting-edge research laboratory studying Lake Tahoe’s water quality and
Ancient eggshell fragments show that Adélie penguins living in Antarctica switched from
eating fish to krill around the time that humans began hunting seals and whales. The finding suggests that when humans
removed krill-eating predators the penguins exploited the resulting shrimp surplus. Click here
Years of wearing out the asphalt, plodding between a fluorescent-lit office and a
Formica-laden apartment, can make city dwellers feel more than a little removed from nature. But for urban residents who
fear their minuscule or nonexistent yards rule out gardening, be encouraged: Big ideas can sprout in small spaces. Here
are a few suggestions from Ellen Zachos, an instructor at the New York Botanical Gardens and author of "Down & Dirty: 43
