Researchers are just starting to learn about the two-metre, scale-free ragfish with cartilage skeleton and flabby flesh found in Alaskan waters, and the faceless fish found in Australian waters, whose eyes, gills and mouth are hidden. That we're still discovering new wonders in the oceans is even more reason to protect them. We have a long way to go, though.

Poke (pronounced POKE-AY) is a traditional Hawaiian dish that you can find pretty much anywhere that carries food on the islands -- from grocery stores, to restaurants, and even little beach shacks. Whenever we're in Hawaii I think it's safe to say my diet consists of at least fifty percent poke.

The Wabigoon River has been sacred to the people of Grassy Narrows for generations. Along with the chain of lakes through which it runs, the river provided fish, drinking water and nearly full employment in guiding and commercial fishing. But shortly after the mill started dumping, mercury began appearing at alarming concentrations far downstream and throughout the entire food chain.

Why are creatures like electric rays, which prefer warmer southern California or Baja waters, turning up with greater frequency further north? Unlike land temperatures, which constantly fluctuate, ocean temperatures are usually stable, with virtually no daily changes, little seasonal differentiation and only minor shifts over decades.

If you take a stroll through your local wine store, you may find a few bottles of wine with a warning on the label that reads, "May contain eggs, milk or fish." What does this mean?
