Molasses Spill One Month On - All Things Marine Talk Show

Aloha all,

A few weeks ago, there was a blog posted discussing the effect of the molasses spill on the mature fish populations. There has been much speculation on the spill by the media, but there still seems to be some level of uncertainty in the reports on the effects it has caused. One month on from when the spill occurred, it would be interesting to know how the ecosystem in the area is recovering. For those that are interested, Carlie Wieners monthly radio segment ‘All Things Marine,’ will be discussing this topic with special guests. Here is an excerpt from an email we received from Carlie:

We are back on the radio! Please join me for our monthly series, All Things Marine on Hawaii's Tomorrow760 AM this coming Tuesday October 15th from 5 - 6 pm. The COSEE Island Earth program in conjunction with HIMB is pleased to present A STICKY SITUATION - HAWAII'S MOLASSES SPILL ONE MONTH LATER. This show will feature Dr. Bob Bidigare, Professor, Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology & Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (CMORE), University of Hawaii; Dr. Grieg Steward, Associate Professor, Department of Oceanography & Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (CMORE), University of Hawaii; and Frazer McGilvray, Administrator, Division of Aquatic Resources, Dept. Land & Natural Resources. You can tune in on your drive home from work or listen as it streams live at
As always,visit for podcasts of previous shows”

Be sure to check out the previous podcasts too! For those interested in climate change (like myself) there is a great podcast on the effect of climate change from a physical oceanographic perspective. It provides viewpoints which somepeople may not consider. For myself, this is especially in regards to the El Niño and La Niña effect, as it has major implications back home in Australia. Be sure to tune in!
