Digital Presentations

An underwater explorer, Frederick “Fritz” Hanselmann is passionate about past civilizations and things that are lost and long-forgotten below the sea’s surface. Hanselmann, lecturer and director of the underwater archaeology and exploration program in the Department of Marine Ecosystems and Society at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, dives deep into Caribbean waters to study shipwrecks, caves, and submerged prehistoric sites to gain insight into humanity’s past and ultimately better understand who we are.

Scientists studying nearly identical coral reef systems off Australia discovered something unusual on the reefs subjected to nearly exclusive fishing of sharks—fish with significantly smaller eyes and tails. The study is the first field evidence of body shape changes in fish due to human-driven shark declines from overfishing. These findings shed new light on the cascading effects the loss of the ocean’s top predators is having on marine ecosystems.

Daniel Benetti, professor of marine ecosystems at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, has pioneered new ways to farm fish—from hatchery to plate—in a sustainable way. Fish, according to Benetti, is the most efficient protein source to feed the world’s growing populations.

A new study has documented unexpected consequences following the decline of great white sharks from a feeding site off South Africa.
