COAST News Intro

​Congratulations to California Maritime Academy in Vallejo for celebrating its 75 anniversary this month. The academy, first known as the California Nautical Schools, was founded in 1929 as a school to train young men interested in careers in the American Merchant Marine. The Academy now offers six undergraduate and one graduate degree and about 1,050 cadets are expected to be enrolled this fall, along with nearly 50 online graduate students.


​Six CSU campuses earned National Science Foundation funding to support educational opportunities for math and science majors pursuing a K-12 teaching credential. The campuses—Chico, San Diego, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, San Marcos and Stanislaus—received a combined $7.1 million in funding to support the development of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) teachers.


​Oil derived from shark livers is a common ingredient in cosmetics, and the demand for it could be putting deep-sea sharks in peril. Dr. Ebert, who has discovered more than 20 new deep-sea shark species over the last two decades, fears that without more protection, “we could create a situation where we’re losing sharks species without realizing it.”
