COAST News Intro

Over the last 1.5 years, a special committee of 12 international scientists formed by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), have studied interventions to increase coral reef persistence under climate change. Among its members is Dr. Cheryl Logan from CSU Monterey Bay. Their final report is available to download for free here: https://www.nap.edu/25424/


​The slime that is found on the scales of fish has been instrumental in protecting fish from diseases found in the ocean. Dr. Erin (Misty) Paig-Tran​ and other researchers are currently studying the compositions of this slime, as the molecules found could one day help protect people against infections, too. 


​Dr. Chris Lowe, Director of California State University Long Beach's Shark Lab, explains what to do and what to look out for if you see a shark.
