Watch Blue Pints Episode 3: Japanese Kelp Fishing and Cryptic Species

This week, we have the full complement of Southern Fried Science bloggers, as Amy Freitag joins Blue Pints to talk about her recent trip to Japan and her experiences with kelp fishermen. We’ll also be sidling up to the bar to discuss the recent revelation that there may be up to 79 more species of shark than previously assumed and what it means to have cryptic species. It’s an extra concentrated dose of Blue Pints! Tune in this Sunday, at 7:30, on Google+ or catch it streaming on my YouTube Channel.

In case you missed the last two episodes:

 Blue Pints Episode 1: Shark fishing, shark finning, and finding common ground in shark conservation

Blue Pints Episode 2: Sea Level Rise, Seafood Fraud, Shipwrecked Aliens, and more!

If you want to make sure to catch Blue Pints, follow me or David on twitter or circle me on Google+. We’ll advertise each broadcast across our various social networks, but the one place you’ll be guaranteed to find the link is my Google+ page.

We’ll host a public hangout immediately following the broadcast for anyone who wants to chat with us.
