||A Changing Climate in Fisheries Management||How will we manage fish populations as the climate changes? NOAA Fisheries biologist John Manderson is working on one small piece of the puzzle.||2/12/14||Free||View In iTunes|
||Killer in Distress||Scientists are working to understand why the population of Southern Resident killer whales isn’t rebounding, and what we can do to help them recover.||12/22/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||Feeds of the Future||To ensure a sustainable future for aquaculture, scientists are developing alternative aquaculture feeds that use few or no ingredients from wild caught fish.||11/4/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||The Giant Oarfish||A NOAA biologist who necropsied this strange and mysterious fish shares his theory of how two of them ended up on the beach.||10/24/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||Blinded by the Noise—Whales and Dolphins in a Noisy Ocean||Many marine mammals use hearing to find their way through the world. But parts of the ocean are filling up with man-made noise, and that has the potential to leave them partially blinded. The CETSOUND project might help.||9/3/13||Free||View In iTunes|
||Hooked On Sharks||Can a special type of hook called a circle hook help vulnerable shark populations to recover? Scientists and fishermen team up to find out.||8/4/13||Free||View In iTunes|

||The Case of the Dead Dolphin||When a NOAA marine biologist performs a necropsy on a dolphin that washed up dead on the beach, she’s not only monitoring the health of marine mammals. She’s monitoring human health as well.||6/27/13||Free||View In iTunes|

Quick and clear
Great little podcast explaining the science done by NOAA Fisheries in a "Radiolab" style.
I love the connection between a nail salon and marine biology research on turtles! Who would have thought? Keep 'em coming!
Interesting, informative, and entertaining.
Great podcast! It was really interesting and engaging, and I learned something new. I enjoyed Rich's style for interviewing scientists and getting them to convey their science in a way the public can understand.
