I caught many spaghetti worm larvae in my plankton net last week, this one will soon settle to the seabed to become an adult. @zeiss_micro

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the only sources consulted for this article are fishing industry-affiliated. No conservationists were interviewed, no regulators, no mention of the scallop closures — just a cute story of a scallop death disco. A+ greenwashing by the @guardian.

The UK fishing industry is frothing over a new scheme to catch scallops with LEDs. Just last year, marine regulators had to shut down scallop fishing due to population concerns. They claim this new method will reduce bycatch. Will it, though? 🧵 gov.uk/government/new…Etwitter.com/defragovuk/sta…Ix

It's sad that an article about scallops with a light-hearted title is actually about the commercial exploitation of a species which is sold as a luxury product. What's worse is that it appears in The Guardian's wildlife/environment section. theguardian.com/environment/20…

In Scotland, due to the 'right to roam', swimmers can swim in almost all Scottish reservoirs. In the rest of the UK water companies must ‘ensure that the water or land is made available for recreational purposes and is so made available in the best manner’ countryfile.com/go-outdoors/ge…

Sad to see @The_RHS Chelsea Flower Show featuring stone-stacking. People's narcissistic desire to leave their mark on the environment should not be encouraged. Does the old adage 'leave no trace' no longer apply? #stonestacking #rockstacking blueplanetsociety.org/rock-stacking-…

Gannets this week the way I want to see them, vigorously reinforcing their pair bond and bursting with life. And one of over a dozen dead birds floating at the base of the Noss NNR cliffs. If avian flu is here, and rips through the packed nesting colony, it's going to be brutal.

Cause of death is not 100% but threshers are frequently caught as bycatch in commercial fisheries and close relatives of thresher have been recorded aborting their pups when stressed by capture. The red marks on her belly are similar to those seen in netted sharks

'despite knowing that the population of this species is dangerously declining, the chances of the shark surviving were minimal.' Soap shark (because it foams a lot when cooked apparently) is another name for the bluntnose sixgill shark. greekcitytimes.com/2022/05/13/cre…
