Octopus Genes, Decolonization, and a mega-dose of Citizen Science! Monday Morning Salvage: April 10, 2017

Flotsam (what we’re obsessed with right now)

Jetsam (what we’re enjoying from around the web)

Instead, I believe that this march needs to be completely apolitical and nonpartisan. I think that we should protest the current administration, which wants to repeal laws guaranteeing clean air and water, claim that climate change is a hoax, and remove scientists’ access to quality healthcare, but in a way that doesn’t alienate members of the current administration. We should demand change, but vaguely, and from no one in particular.

Lagan (what we’re reading from the peer-reviewed literature)

Biological Conservation released an epic collection of Citizen Science papers (hilariously not open access, but Unpaywall will help you out with that):

And, of course, it wouldn’t be an Andrew-curated linkfest without something on Deep-sea Mining.

Driftwood (what we’re reading on dead trees)

Derelicts (favorites from the deep archive)

A round-up of all my old posts on 3D-printing. Check out my Thingiverse profile to access my 3D models.

Feel free to share your own Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan, Driftwood, and Derelicts in the comments below. And, of as always, if you enjoy Southern Fried Science, consider contributing to my Patreon campaign to help us keep the servers humming.


Marine science and conservation. Deep-sea ecology. Population genetics. Underwater robots. Open-source instrumentation. The deep sea is Earth's last great wilderness.
