New Study: BP Oil is Affecting the Hearts of Fish

During the spring and summer of 2010, the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster released over 4 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. This was an unprecedented amount of toxic material discharged into the Gulf, and oil spill scientists have been researching its impacts on marine and coastal wildlife ever since. One of the species of concern is the imperiled Atlantic bluefin tuna, which was spawning at the time and location of the BP disaster.Mar 1st, 2014

Dive Flag Awareness

The diver down flag indicates there are scuba divers and/ or snorkelers in the water. Boaters and PWC’s should remain 200 ft. away from the flag. If you need to approach within 100 feet, use extreme caution, go slow and look for bubbles. The divers and snorkelers also have a responsibility to remain within 50’ of their flag. The intention of the flag isn’t a restriction, but to keep everyone safe, so boaters and divers can all enjoy the water together.Feb 1st, 2014

Lengthy Gulf Restoration Plan Needs to Dive Deeper

If you're like me, the recent holiday season has erased some of your memory (I think it’s all the sweets), and you may be in need of a refresher on where we left off in the Gulf restoration process. Recently, the Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) trustees released a long-awaited draft Early Restoration Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) and Phase III Environmental Restoration Plan (ERP). This was exciting news for the Gulf of Mexico, because the PEIS is critical for laying the groundwork for a comprehensive, long-term and integrated restoration process in the wake of the BP oil disaster. Ocean Conservancy’s experts have been going through the nearly 2,500- page document with a fine tooth comb over the last several weeks, and we are pleased to present you with our preliminary views.Feb 1st, 2014

The Wharf Boat and Yacht Show Returns to Orange Beach

In just a few short years it’s become one of the most popular events on the Gulf Coast: The Wharf Boat and Yacht Show. And this year’s show, slated for March 27- 30, 2014, promises to be more incredible than ever before. Show organizers expect over $90 million in boats and marine products on display this year, including more than 125 in-water vessels and an additional 250-plus boats displayed on land. It’s become one of the most exciting outdoor, in-water shows on the Gulf Coast but rather focusing on the sheer size, the organizers instead highlight quality—there’s literally something for everyone, whether a newcomer to boating or a seasoned tournament veteran.Feb 1st, 2014

How to Find a Fishing Guide

Fishing is often portrayed and seen as something that is relatively easy where all that is needed to catch fish is a rod and some shrimp. It is possible to be self-taught and it is possible to learn through books, experience and practice. But if you want to learn or improve quickly and attain a higher skill level than you would otherwise, then booking some tuition with a fishing guide is the best option.Feb 1st, 2014
