Link Dump

Figured I would try something new today, dump a couple of interesting links:

Today, you can read about aquanauts living on the seafloor studying sponges off the Florida coast

Learn about jellyfish and their increasing abundances

How WWII impacted North Sea fish stocks and the implications for marine protected areas in management of cold water species

An angler who set the world record by catching 1000 different fish species

And check my out on twitter, I'm a newbie though...
