Straight from the 2015 Australian Fish Biology conference, John brings the lowdown the current trends in fisheries and coastal management, and the latest science on artificial reefs stock enhancement strategies. Terri Allen joins us for a dive report - warm-weather divers are dusting off their BCs and regs...Then Albert Li from Scuba for Change, a fantastic local initiative that puts 100% of profits from diving holidays in the Philippines back into local communities. Albert will be joined by partner Stairway Foundation founders Monica Ray and Lars Jorgensen to talk about their Sea Adventure School, and an upcoming fundraising event with Cracked Mirrors Theatre Production. Plus news from Sea Shepherd, including a massive legal win in their fight against deep sea poaching in the Southern Ocean, and some startling numbers of marine deaths from entanglement in shark netting, many of which are not actually sharks.
