A video posted by New England Aquarium (@newenglandaquarium) on Nov 29, 2016 at 1:43pm PST neaq: Rescued turtles often come wearing a fuzz of algae on their shells. Rescuers scrub the seaweed from their shells after they start their treatments. #animalrescue #seaturtle #ocean #animals #oceananimals #newenglandaquarium
beam-me-up-aliens: went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium today! (no audio) Woo hoo!
We don’t egret a thing! Great egrets are commonly seen from our back deck, alternatively looking for a perch to eat or a perch to land along the rocky shore.

Big winter swells are rolling through Monterey Bay, tearing out kelp and shuffling the seafloor in a submarine shakeup for the coming year!
MONACO, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will hold a meeting in Monaco on 6-9 December 2016 to draft the outline of the Special Report on Climate Change and the Oceans and the Cryosphere. The meeting will bring together around one hundred experts from over 40 countries. The IPCC will hold a Media Briefing […]
Laboratory experiments suggest that calcifying developmental stages of marine invertebrates may be the most ocean acidification (OA)-sensitive life-history stage and represent a life-history bottleneck. To better extrapolate laboratory...Show More Summary
GLOBAL warming is not the only environmental change that is being wrought by rising emissions of carbon dioxide. This gas, acidic when dissolved in water, is also lowering the pH of the world’s sea water—a phenomenon known as ocean acidification. How much to worry about this acidification (or, strictly, reduction in alkalinity, for there is […]
A second inter-laboratory comparison of seawater CO2 measurements is planned for the second quarter of 2017. The goal of this comparison is to assess the present quality of seawater CO2 measurements for total alkalinity, total dissolved inorganic carbon, and pH. We encourage all laboratories to participate, whether they participated in 2013 or not. Show More Summary

See the water boiling? That’s dolphinately a superpod! This huge group of common dolphins was spotted entering Monterey Bay yesterday, probably on its way to a seafood banquet with the whole family! Thanks to volunteer Mike Guardino for the video! Need more Monterey Bay action? Check out our live cam:
It’s jelly time! Gently pulsing jellies are beautiful to watch, but don’t let these unassuming invertebrates fool you. Their graceful trailing tentacles and oral arms are covered with stinging cells for snaring prey.
On the first day of Christmas NASA Earth Science gave to me: advance warning of Hurricane Activity. On the second day of Christmas NASA Earth Science gave to me: Two working jet engines, and advance warning of Hurricane Activity. On the third day of Christmas NASA Earth Science gave to me: three prong […]
Assessing the vulnerability of resources to the potential impacts from climate change is critical in implementing management strategies aimed at resource conservation. A conceptual framework of climate change vulnerability was developed...Show More Summary
Ocean warming and acidification are concomitant global drivers that are currently threatening the survival of marine organisms. How species will respond to these changes depends on their capacity for plastic and adaptive responses. Little...Show More Summary
The beloved salmon — along with other commercially valuable fish such as herring and pollock— thrives on a diet of microscopic marine sea snails known as pteropods. Last week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that scientists have determined that human-caused carbon dioxide in the Pacific Ocean is dissolving the shells of these creatures, […]
The availability of the micronutrient iron governs phytoplankton growth across much of the ocean, but the global iron cycle is changing rapidly due to accelerating acidification, stratification, warming and deoxygenation. These mechanisms...Show More Summary

Six new dolphinfish are swimming about in our Open Sea exhibit! It’s fun to watch these acrobatic fish zip around in quick bursts and flash golden green streaks when they get excited. Dolphinfish also grow large quickly (green sea turtle for scale)! They can reach a length of over four feet in the first year of growth, and up to 6.5 feet in four years.
