About Southern Fried Science

Southern Fried Science is a place to discuss marine science and conservation as we explore the oceans. Our writers are practicing marine scientists and science communicators at many different career stages. Our specialties range from local fishing communities to the deepest hydrothermal vents and everything in between. We tackle the greatest threats facing our ocean and our planet as well as the latest scientific discoveries and the most frightening, fascinating, and bizarre creatures that call the ocean home.

Through it all, we never lose sight of what inspires us: The ocean is a source of unceasing wonder and we want it so stay that way.
