 "Wheel of Fortune” to Feature NSU Associate Professor as a Contestant

 JulieWOFJulie Torruellas Garcia, Ph.D., associate professor at NSU’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, is a featured contestant on the nationally televised game show “Wheel of Fortune,” airing locally on WPLG-Channel 10, Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
“Have you ever watched a game show from home and expertly answered every question or solved every puzzle? You may have thought to yourself, ‘I should be a contestant on that show!’ That was the case here,” said Torruellas Garcia, whose dream was to compete in the wheel-spinning show where contestants choose a letter to solve hangman-style word puzzles.
Torruellas Garcia decided to pursue her dream after attending a goal-setting workshop with high-school girls whom she mentors. “We were helping the girls set life goals and encouraging them to take action to achieve those goals. I realized that my goal was to be on a game show but I was not doing anything about it,” she said.
She was selected for a first audition from a random drawing of names. Three months later, she was called back for a rigorous second audition that included a written exam. Two weeks later, she received a congratulations letter.
During the summer, Torruellas Garcia filmed the show in Los Angeles where she met celebrity host Pat Sajak and hostess Vanna White. 
“It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget,” she said, adding, “You will have to watch and see” if she won the game.


Halmos College Scientist Reappointed to NOAA Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Advisory Panel

David Kerstetter, Ph.D., assistant professor at the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, has been reappointed to the Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Advisory Panel (HMS AP) for a three-year term.

Panel members, who represent commercial and recreational fishing interests, and scientific and environmental communities, provide input to National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries in preparing and implementing fishery management plans for Atlantic tunas, swordfish, billfish, and sharks.

Kerstetter is one of only four academic scientists in the U.S. Atlantic/Gulf regions to serve on the panel.

“I’ve been working with HMS since serving as a John A. Knauss Sea Grant Marine Policy Fellow with the International Affairs Division of NOAA Fisheries in 1998,” Kerstetter said. “When I returned to graduate school afterward, my research focused on blue marlin biology and management—a good combination of my marine science and public policy background and interests.  

“This is my third term with the AP, on which I started serving in 2010. Not only is the intersection of research and management professionally challenging, but it helps provide real-world guidance to the managers at the federal level. I’ve also been able to use that insight into management needs to guide my own research program at NSU, which has benefitted several of our graduate students.”

Halmos College Alumna Publishes Study in Journal of Water and Health


Diana Aranda, M.S., alumna of the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, has published her thesis in the Journal of Water and Health.

Aranda, who graduated in April 2013 with an M.S. in Coastal Zone Management, was the lead author of “Using Probabilities of Enterococci Exceedance and Logistic Regression to Evaluate Long-Term Weekly Beach Monitoring Data.

Recreational water quality surveillance involves comparing bacterial levels to set threshold values to determine beach closure,” Aranda wrote. “Bacterial levels can be predicted through models which are traditionally based upon multiple linear regression. The objective of this study was to evaluate exceedance probabilities, as opposed to bacterial levels, as an alternate method to express beach risk.”

The study is a “prime example of collaboration between NSU units,” said Jose V. Lopez, Ph.D., a professor at the college who served as Aranda’s thesis advisor and co-author of the study.

Jay Fleisher, Ph.D., associate professor at NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, was also a co-author and provided crucial interpretation and assistance to Aranda.

This paper discusses methods to assess the quality of our local beaches using a retrospective approach and big data,” Lopez said. “This work is consistent with our lab’s concern for seawater quality as it may affect the local habitats, such as mangroves, reefs, and beaches. We are carrying out more genomics-based approaches; however, all studies are complementary.”

Deepwater Horizon oil spill caused lasting damage, report says


WASHINGTON - Dolphins are dying in unusually high numbers. Sea turtle nests are declining.

Tuna are developing abnormally. And pelicans and gulls are still suffering from the lasting effects of a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico five years ago, the National Wildlife Federation warned in a report released Monday.

The impact is concentrated in the northern Gulf, but scientists say the long-term damage affects spawning waters for many fish that migrate to South Florida, the Caribbean and along the East Coast.

Nova Southeastern University Researchers Discover Hurricanes Helped Accelerate Spread of Lionfish

LionfishTheir names roll of the tongue like a rogues’ gallery: Floyd, Frances, Irene, Wilma and Andrew. But these aren't the names of notorious criminals; rather, they are just a few of the hurricanes since 1992 that have helped spread invasive marine species throughout the Florida Straits. Researchers at Nova Southeastern University's (NSU) Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography have discovered that storms don't only have a dramatic impact on land; they have an equally dramatic effect on ocean currents, which helps the spread of marine invasive species throughout a region. More specifically, NSU researchers looked at the distribution of lionfish in the Florida Straits.

Hot Water Corals in the Persian Gulf Could Help Save the World's Reefs

Just down the road from the world's tallest tower, in the shadow of monster sand dunes, marine biologists from around the world clamored onboard a boat for a visit to some of the Persian Gulf's coral reefs.

The waters off the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) coast can be murky and only have 10 percent of the coral reef diversity found in the Indian Ocean or on the Great Barrier Reef. But the researchers came looking for something even more precious: clues that could one day help coral reefs around the world survive the onslaught of global warming.

Mako shark tracks off Savannah

by Mary Landers

With the 24/7 owl cam and frequent pings from satellite-tagged great white sharks, it's like a live film fest of wild animals lately in Savannah. Here's another I just learned about: Mako sharks.

A mako called SOSF2 is toodling around off Savannah. Its latest pings are shown in the map above. A reader alerted me to his presence, saying, "The shark has been tracked over 250 days and has traveled nearly 4,000 miles.  You can see the track and the location of the shark off Savannah at selecting Mako Sharks 3. W North Atlantic and clicking on the shark SOSF2 on the list of tracks on the far right of the web page."

Florida's staghorn coral makes surprising return

By Johnny Diaz, Sun Sentinel

A surprise discovery along the south Florida coast has revealed dense thickets of a species of coral thought to be disappearing from the region's reefs.

More than 38 acres of staghorn coral have been found in patches on the reefs from northern Miami-Dade County to northern Broward County, in what scientists call a rare piece of good news for a species that has seen severe declines, largely because of disease.

Good dolphin catches deep and also shallow

By Steve Waters, Sun Sentinel

Now that fall is here, dolphin are on the move back south and South Florida anglers have enjoyed some of the best fishing of the year for the highly coveted species.

Capt. Bouncer Smith had a trip Monday out of Miami Beach Marina that rivaled any of his dolphin trips in May, which is typically the best time of the year to catch lots of dolphin.

Rob McCully and David Spain of Miami and Jonathan Lapin of New York caught their limit of 30 dolphin up to 20 pounds fishing along a rip with grass 12 miles offshore on Bouncer's Dusky 33.

"We caught dolphin up to 15 pounds one right after the other trolling feathers and ballyhoo," Smith said. "A fish would hit a ballyhoo, then a fish would hit a feather, then a fish would hit a ballyhoo and the next fish would hit a feather."

NBC 6 College Week at NSU (OC coverage starts at 7:30)

Protecting sharks off Florida’s eastern coast

Under a darkening Florida sky, with lightning flashing in the distance, we rode our 46ft dive boat away from Ft Lauderdale’s strip of beach hotels, on a mission to find the animals that most humans fear.

Leading our expedition was Derek Burkholder, an imposing, barefoot encyclopaedia of shark biology and a research associate at the Nova Southeastern University’s Guy Harvey Research Institute. Under his direction – and through a new periodic weekend offering at the Westin Beach Resort and Spa – we were participating in a new study that aims to protect the sharks off Florida’s eastern coast; catching the animals, fixing them with identification tags, taking tissue samples and returning them unharmed – though possibly irritated – to the ocean.

New York Times - A Call to Action Against a Predator Fish With an Import Ban, App and Even Rodeos

MIAMI — They eat anything that fits in their mouths. They reproduce copiously and adapt effortlessly. And they have become as ubiquitous and pesky as rats — only prettier and more conniving.

Nearly three decades after a lone venomous lionfish was spotted in the ocean off Broward County — posing as a bit of eye candy back then and nothing more — the species has invaded the Southern seaboard, staking a particular claim on Florida, as well as the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean, and even parts of South America. Spreading gradually at first, and then frenetically from 2005 onward, lionfish have become the most numerous marine nonnative invasive species in the world, scientists said. Along the way, the predators, which hail from the other side of the world and can grow here to 20 inches long, are wreaking havoc on delicate reefs and probably further depleting precious snapper and grouper stocks.

Fused Staghorn Coral

Marine biologist Colin Foord calls the fused staghorn coral seen above “a real survivor.”

Foord first came upon a colony of the Acropora prolifera—a hybrid of staghorn (Acropora cervicornis) and elkhorn (Acropora palmata) corals—while diving around Miami’s Fisher Island in 2009. The discovery surprised him—he had seen staghorns and elkhorns before, and this coral looked somewhat similar, but it was a fluorescent green instead of brown. He soon realized that this creature was in fact a fused staghorn coral—a rare find outside of the Caribbean.

Sir Richard Branson Blogs about Large Pelagics Research Center (UMass) and NSU-GHRI collaborative sailfish tracking program: From a close shave to a Necker visit: a sailfish's journey.

After a sailfish nearly took my eye out, I have a whole new appreciation for this magnificent species. Now, in a ground-breaking tracking research programme, we are learning lots more about sailfish.  SailfishVery little is known about the habits of most species in the ocean, and the more we can learn and understand, the more we can do to help protect these beautiful creatures.

With this in mind, Guy Harvey, Dr. Molly Lutcavage of the Large Pelagics Research Center and their teams started a programme to track mako sharks, tiger sharks, oceanic whitetip sharks, sand tiger sharks and blue marlin as well as sailfish. Virgin Unite is among the proud partners of this excellent project, sponsoring six sailfish.

Researchers Urge Caution When Exploiting The World’s Deep Oceans

Good Stewardship Is Vital for Sustainability for Future Generations – More Exploration and Understanding is Needed

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – It has been said that we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about our own planet’s oceans. That especially applies to the deepest parts of our oceans – depths that are 200 meters or deeper.

Researchers from organizations around the world who specialize in studying and exploring the deepest regions of our oceans have come together to pen a cautionary tale that urges we take a critical look at how we’re treating our seas.

“We need to consider the common heritage of mankind - when do we have the right to take something that will basically never be replaced or take millions of years,” said Tracey Sutton, Ph.D., Associate Professor at Nova Southeastern University’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography.

A Tale of Two Sharks Mystery, Intrigue and History in the Making

Two sharks. Two species. And two different journeys that have kept marine scientists closely monitoring the migrations of these satellite tagged sharks for months—one for its place in history and the second for the way it continues to make history.

sharks “Beamer”, a 200-pound blue shark, was caught by Blue Fin IV captained by Michael Potts last year off Montauk, New York during the nation’s first catch-satellite tag-and- all-release shark tournament named Shark’s Eye. Beamer made history that day last July when he was fitted with a SPOT (Smart Position Or Temperature) Tag and released. In fact, there were 64 sharks caught and released during Shark’s Eye, 33 makos and 31 blues. None were killed. (Shark’s Eye All-Release Tournament & Festival is returning to Montauk July 11-13.)

Wet Suits: Scuba diving lawyers

Art Levy | 12/20/2013

David Black was 7 the first time he saw someone pull on a wet suit and jump into the Atlantic Ocean. Right then, scuba diving became his dream. Whenever someone asked him what he wanted to do when he grew up, Black said he planned to move to the Caribbean and become a diving instructor.

Oh, and he also wanted to be a lawyer.Divebar

Black followed through on both ambitions. After college, he moved to Grand Cayman and taught diving for a year before returning to the U.S. and enrolling at the Boston University School of Law.

Now a 32-year-old associate at Berger Singerman in Fort Lauderdale, Black still dives — as many as three times a month — and usually with fellow members of DiveBar, a 2-year-old south Florida-based group that calls itself the “first underwater Bar association for legal professionals.”


Portuguese man-of-war (and their stings) return

Come to South Florida and experience the sun, the surf, the venomous tentacles of the Portuguese man-of-war.
It's the season for stinging blobs that resemble jellyfish to wash ashore, and purple warning flags were flying Monday at beaches in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.Man-of-war

The Portuguese man-of-war tends to be found off South Florida from late fall to early spring, said Charles Messing, professor at Nova Southeastern University's Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography. When winds blow strongly toward shore, as they have in the past few days, the beaches become littered with the translucent gas bladders that are their most prominent feature (until they sting you).

Florida's coral reefs make a comeback

William E. Gibson, Washington Bureau
5:37 p.m. EST, November 6, 2013

WASHINGTON — South Florida's coral reefs, a natural wonder worth more than $6 billion to the local economy, appear to be rebounding after decades of damage, disease and deterioration.

The iconic reefs, which attract divers, boaters, marine scientists and fishermen from around the world, have been spared in recent years from major storms and ship groundings, allowing them to survive and even grow offshore.

NurseryA federal study released this month brought more good news: Coral reefs may be able to adapt to warmer sea temperatures. That's a sign they can withstand a limited degree of gradual global warming — but only if carbon emissions are restrained to prevent unhealthy extremes.

The findings raise hope for the survival of the recreational and economic resource, just as scientists and officials gather in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday and Friday for the fifth annual Southeast Florida Regional Climate Leadership Summit. They will assess the costs and challenges of sea-level rise and global warming.


Diving with the Coral Doctor - By David W. Shaw

It’s a beautiful autumn afternoon on the beach in South Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Surfers enjoy the waves. Swimmers frolic in the warm water. On Anglin’s Fishing Pier, also known as Commercial Pier, fishing buffs go for snook, croaker, mackerel and cobia. About 200 yards offshore, a dive boat bobs in the swells, and Richard Dodge, dean of the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography of Nova Southeastern University in Hollywood, Fla., plunges into the sea to check on one of the university’s coral nurseries. “When I’m diving, I’m doing it for work, but it’s still fun. The reefs are beautiful,” Dodge says. “There are so many different kinds of animals and plants. It’s all very exciting, but for me the fascination is truly in working to better understand how these ecosystems function.”
