Spinning the atom - Patrick Moore for hire

Blog entry by tom | 25 April, 2008

U.S. purse seiner confronted in the South Pacific

Blog entry by Jess | 20 April, 2008 3 comments

At 8:30 this morning, I stood on the deck of the Esperanza staring out at a ship in the distance. We had spotted a fishing vessel in international waters and had sent a team to see if they were actually fishing. As the information...

Sure do love those flyin fish

Blog entry by Jess | 19 April, 2008 2 comments

This morning I woke up still pretty sore from spending a whole day in the RHIBS on the open ocean Wednesday. I glanced over at the alarm clock and realized I had more than an hour before I had to get up for breakfast. I looked out the...
