84. Six Fish and a Whale for Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary

Christine_Larkin_Headshot_000Rob’s guest is Radio Host, Actress and Singer, Christine Larkin.  Christine reports on ocean life and storm changes to Long Island. In a reversal of roles, Christine interviews Rob about 7 animals of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.  Cod and stockfish brought people long ago to Stellwagen.  Declining cod stocks in 1639 alarmed the Pilgrims to pass a law protecting cod. It has been downhill for cod since 1620, until 2008 when a natural phenomenon on Stellwagen misled scientists to overestimate cod numbers. Rob describes what makes tuna a Boston Bluefin commanding high market prices, bubble netting by humpback whales, redfish of muddy bottom, haddock of gravel bottoms, goosefish or monkfish of sandy bottoms and the wolffish of boulder reefs.  Christine and Rob suggest what one can do to save marine life and enjoy a more vibrant Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.
