A jellyfish-like colony of marine species uses a method similar to jet propulsion to move as a whole.
New research reveals the percentage of plastic inside the average seabird.
Deep-sea fishing endangers vulnerable species that live farther underwater. To avoid permanent biodiversity loss, depth regulations are being discussed in Europe.
A new giant file clam species was found off the coast of Canada. While the first sighting of this species was over 30 years ago, recent technology has finally allowed scientists to distinguish them as their own.
For a change, researches examined beach sand instead of beach water and found a surprising amount of pathogens that endanger beach goers. Here's what regulartors should be doing in light of these findings.

For three years beginning in August, 400 underwater video locations all over the globe will record valuable information on sharks, rays and skates and their relationship to reefs.
Starfish have something in common with flatworms.
Researchers at University of Hawaii-Manoa and the University of Tokyo have found, to their surprise, that two types of deep-sea sharks have positive buoyancy – they float even when not moving – unlike most other sharks.
New research says that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030, with the Bering Sea reaching this level of acidity by 2044.
Well, not quite. But new remarkable research has shown that in the longest ever tiger tracking study, these predators boast migration patterns more similar to birds, turtles and some marine mammals than other fishes.
With flashbacks to Jaws in mind, it seems like an insane idea to leave the safety of a diving cage with a massive great white shark swimming just a few feet away. And yet that's exactly what one lucky diver did near Guadalupe Island in Mexico.
