Last night we had a terrific talk in the beach house by Prof Phil Munday of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University: "Fish in hot water: how will climate change affect coral reef fishes?".
As we constantly hear in the media about how electricity prices have risen and how high they may go people are also worried how high they will go if a carbon tax is introduced. There is a campaign running that says clean energy is too expensive and it fails to say that doing nothing is also a high price to pay.
It is that time of year again when we need to look at our waste. We need to rethink how we look at waste and look for positive solutions. If you need some ideas and you are a small business “Sustainable Growth” is a great new book written by Jon Dee.
This week we feature some lovely images of flying fishes in flight ... or should I say glide? There are images of a larval surgeonfish, a gudgeon in freshwater and a selection of fishes caught on hook and line. Thank you as always to all our contributors.
