A hammerhead shark dragged a US kayaker up the Atlantic coast for a two-hour “South Florida sleigh ride” that he taped with a head-mounted camera.
Adam Fisk, 22, posted a five-minute clip of his wild ride, titled Lone Man Gets Towed for Miles in Kayak by 11 Foot Hammerhead Shark, on YouTube.
At one point, Fisk dipped the camera into the water and recorded the shark swimming ahead of the kayak.Fisk, a student at Florida Atlantic University, set out in the kayak to go fishing near Boynton Beach, Florida, on Sunday.
“I threw my bait out and went to reel my other one in so I wouldn’t get tangled, and I just had time to pick up the rod before the other one already got picked up by that hammer,” he wrote on YouTube.
“It must have been sitting right under me and I had no idea.”Above: A hammerhead shark that dragged a US kayaker up the Florida coast for about 20 kilometers. Photo: YouTube Screen shot.

O’Neill // January 4, 2015 – please click here for original article.
A dramatic rise in ocean temperature is changing the kinds of fish that swim off New Jersey’s coast — a development that has significant ramifications for the state’s fishing industry and could even alter restaurant menus.
Species that used to be centered off New Jersey, like shad, have shifted north to New England in search of cooler waters. Fish once centered off Virginia, like black sea bass and summer flounder, now swim in abundance off New Jersey.
“We’ve been seeing unprecedented warming in the ocean over the past several decades,” said Malin Pinsky, a marine biologist at Rutgers University who has studied the changes. “Climate change and the warming of ocean waters is not some abstract global problem. We can see the implications right off our shore in New Jersey.”
Temperatures had risen one degree every 14 years off New Jersey since the 1970s. In the past decade, warming has accelerated to one degree every 2½ years, Pinsky said.
“Marine fish are very sensitive to a change in temperature — they can only survive in a narrow range, so they are seeking out cooler waters toward the poles and deeper in the ocean,” he said. “And deeper generally means farther from shore.”Above: Malin Pinsky, a marine biologist with Rutgers University, has studied how rising ocean temperatures have affected the commercial and recreational fishing industries off the Jersey Shore.
