Kayak with icebergs in Newfoundland

In Twillingate, icebergs are treated like visiting house guests. Locals discuss their habits and behaviours and how long they may or may not stick around. Watching 10,000-year-old ice smash into the coastline is impressive on land, and even more so from the water. Considering that 90 per cent of an iceberg is underwater, you'll want to keep your distance as you paddle around bergs that can reach 15 storeys. Veteran kayakers will remind you to always watch where you're going and stay well clear of floating 'bergy bits' — they're as tough as concrete.

Bluefin tuna: a new perspective in the NE Atlantic

 
 In 2013, Angus Campbell caught a 515lb Atlantic bluefin tuna with a rod and reel off the Isle of Harris, the Outer Hebrides. Although this wasn’t out of the realms of possibility, this had never been done before in Scotland. In 2014, Dr. Francis Neat (Marine Scotland Science) initiated a scientific program on bluefin tuna in Scotland with the aim of finding out three things: 1) how long bluefin resided in Scottish waters, 2) where they went, when they left, and 3) what stock the fish belonged to. That year we successfully tagged three bluefin with miniPAT tags from Wildlife Computers. Although the project was a success, the results from our work were far from conclusive. We’re now in the process of starting a collaborative study with Stanford University, to contribute knowledge on this enigmatic species to the bigger picture of bluefin in the northeast Atlantic.

It seems like every week brings a new doomsday study about the death of our oceans. But off the coast of Long Island, an underwater farm is demonstrating how sustainable ocean farming can clean the water, give sea life a safe haven, and turn kelp into the “next kale.” Its creators hope the model will catch on–and a recent $100,000 award will give it more capital to develop the idea.
