We are thrilled to share, that our director of the Pacific Shark Research Center, Dr. David Ebert, will be on the panel of the upcoming SOLD OUT Holland Lifelong Learning Finale & Dinner about the World of Wonder: What Lies Beneath.
This lecture series, held at South Carolina Aquarium, allows you to explore top issues in conservation, research and science. These expert-led discussions are geared toward adults in a relaxed social environment. Other participants include Fabien Cousteau of the famed ocean conservationist Cousteau family; the National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Dr. Grace C. Young as well as their science reporter, Dr. Nadia Drake; and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research coordinator, Dr. Daniel Wagner.

Ross Clark talks aquaculture and methane emissions in new article

Ross Clark, director of the Central Coast Wetlands Group at Moss Landing Marine Labs and regular contributor the the Santa Cruz Sentinel, has a new article out! For this piece, Mr. Clark highlights MLML scientists, aiming to reduce methane emissions through aquaculture. Read more here.


Scientists at Moss Landing Marine Labs aquaculture center hope recently initiated research will have the potential to revitalize the dairy industry while simultaneously propelling the algal aquaculture industry and simultaneously reducing U.S. dairies carbon emissions. Recent research has shown that changes in feeding strategies, such as supplemental seaweed feed additives (used at 1-2 percent of feed material) can reduce methane production from cattle by up to 99 percent.

Current success in reducing methane has been through the use of a warm water non-native algae species added to the feed. Moss Landing scientists are hoping to identify local species that can perform the same function and can be grown locally without risk of introducing invasive species to our marine environment.
