1) Scientific News of Interest

'For a fish, there's no place like home, say major studies, offering key information for fisheries management'

'(Santa Barbara, California) Pathbreaking fisheries research from two different oceans yielded the same results, published as this week's cover story in Nature: chemical tests show that coral reef fish often spend their life cycle close to home, rather than drifting in the open ocean, thus providing important information for global fisheries managemen...' .See the whole article at http://www.eurekalert.org/releases/ucsb-faf121099.html

2) Divers Down TV contacted Reef Ball about a program to air next spring on how Divers can help the environment by participating in Reef Ball projects.

3) Desarollos Hoteleros in Guatemala is ordering a set of Reef Ball molds to complete a submerged breakwater to protect the Hotelís beach. By changing strategies from a traditional above water breakwater to a submerged breakwater the water flow around the beach can be maintained to preserve higher water quality. The molds will be donated to the non-profit Organization for Land and Sea after the project to create additional Reef Ball reefs in areas needed for ecological restoration, traditional fisheries and diving locations.

4) Nancy Scharmach, Executive Director, of the Florida Outdoors Writers Association will play a Reef Ball Video for Ocala Dive Club members at one of there upcoming meetings.

Have a great week.
