August 5, 2016 Serial Perpetrators: the fossil fuel industry strikes America's Gulf Coast again. The state of Louisiana and its human and animal inhabitants are under attack:
July 6, 2016: here's Thom Hartmann reporting on Florida's stinky, guacamole-thick algae bloom now affecting the Florida coastline and involving the Everglades, residents made ill, and animals in the Florida ecosystem. The algae love it!
Predictably, this engineered problem spotlights (among other things) the Army Corp of Engineers, poor management, chemical run off, septic systems, and ineffective spending which have made this year's bloom much worse. Then there are the politicians determined to blame President Obama for the mess for their own political gain (they hope) for as they know, misdirected blame allows them to neglect reparation of the actual problems:
So often it's bad news for oceans and the environment posted here on Dreamyfish Art but not today! Check out this too-brief tour of the mysterious Shell Grotto tucked underneath the British town of Margate:

Perhaps you've heard the very good news--that SeaWorld has agreed to end their captive breeding of whales! For more details you may wish to visit NPR.

In Astrology, planet Neptune (ancient god of the sea) describes a variety of concepts such as all liquids and gases, bodies of water including oceans, the sea creatures that inhabit the waters, and the toxins and chemicals that harm them. But astrological Neptune also inspires such realms as photography, film, acting, dancing, illusion, magic, and masks such as the one you see, above. Even anonymity peeks from veiling Neptune's bag of tricks.
So if you'd care for some lighter Neptunian content than radiated sea monsters, why not mosey over to my brand new blog Neptune's Silver Screen where horoscopes, film clips, and bios of Famous Film Stars are spotlighted--just be sure to BYOP (bring your own popcorn)!
Sorry to report that there is bad news concerning the Growing Impact of Ocean Acidification on Marine Life Worldwide.
And with transiting Neptune now in its own sign of fishy, murky Pisces (and increasing paranoia within the Collective Unconscious and bringing increases of toxins, poisons,contamination, and infections in its watery wake), we have pineal gland calcification concerns to be addressed. Check out a previous post with an informative video on how to do just that--because our 3rd eye intuitive faculties need relief!

This is distressing news: Why Are Hundreds Of Thousands of Salmon Dying In The Northwest? published on July 29, 2015 and written by Natasha Geiling.
Warm water which gives bacteria and other threats a good place to dwell is an immediate cause but as you know, these are symptoms of a wider problem. Will loss of salmon boost sales of genetically modified salmon?
However, 'Salmon Are a Huge Economic Resource in the Pacific Northwest':
