My second article for The Conservation Project International is up on their website – it touches on the plight of Goliath groupers but goes into greater depth on the less publicised damage being done to their cousins, the calico groupers. I talk about recreational and commercial overfishing of slow growing threatened species, bycatch, and briefly touch on the need for people from a diversity of professional backgrounds in marine conservation.
Thanks to Katrina from Barreleye Zoology for the nomination!
Hi! I recently adapted my post on Becoming a British Diver for The Marine Diaries blog, where it is now titled The Hidden Treasures of Britain’s Seas. It’s a much better incarnation of the original post, and I’d love it if you’d go go check it out! They’ve also got loads of other great posts on diving and marine biology careers, including some really cool interviews.
