What Do Marine Biologists Do and How Much Do They Earn?

What exactly is a marine biologist? What do they actually do? It turns out they aren’t just a bunch of people who enjoy swimming and looking at underwater creatures with a snorkel and fins. I feel like this is one of those careers that sound so arbitrary and mystifying that we don’t take the time to find out about it or pay attention to it. It turns out their job is not as abstract and insignificant as space lawyers, extreme unicyclists or penguinologists. Marine biologists actually study for a long time to acquire the necessary skills to study and observe underwater habitats and creatures. They are responsible for the discovery of many weird, wonderful and wacky sea creatures. They play a vital role in teaching us how to maintain and preserve this incredible source of food, medicine and raw materials that can help us build our future.   By studying...

‘S.S. Clifton' discovered in Lake Huron

From WZZM13 MYSTERY SOLVED | ‘S.S. Clifton' discovered in Lake Huron “THE CLIFTON WAS THE ONLY WHALEBACK SHIP LEFT IN LAKE HURON THAT HADN’T ALREADY BEEN FOUND. THERE WAS NO QUESTION WE HAD FOUND THE CLIFTON.” On September 21st, 1924, the steamship S.S. Clifton left Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, carrying a load of stone to Detroit, Michigan. The freighter was seen passing through the Straits of Mackinac at 10:20 a.m., and was last seen by a tug boat on upper Lake Huron that evening. A gale came up, sweeping across the lake. The storm was violent and unrelenting. The S.S. Clifton would founder, taking with it the lives of all 28 sailors on board. Three days later, when the S.S. Clifton didn’t arrive in Detroit as scheduled, a thorough search of the Lake Huron coast line – from Oscoda (near Alpena) to Port Huron – had failed to reveal any trace of the missing ship. Eventually, wreckage from...

Salvage firm hopes to net gold

From Rob Davies - The Guardian A transatlantic salvage operation will put to sea within days to recover some of the estimated £125bn worth of gold and other precious metals sunk by German U-boats while being shipped to pay for Britain’s first and second world war efforts. Britannia’s Gold, a UK firm that has spent 25 years analysing cargo lost at sea, will set sail in secret from an unannounced port to explore the first cluster of shipwrecks it hopes will yield treasure. If successful, the loot will be taken to a secure location, from which the company will negotiate a price with the UK government for its return. The company plans to explore dozens of shipwrecks stretching from the north Atlantic to the Caribbean, believing it can recover around 2,000 tonnes of bounty. Will Carrier, operational director of Britannia’s Gold, said the company had an unrivalled opportunity thanks to...
