Ocean Signs at the #MarchForScience

Update: now with moar signs from readers!

One of the beauties of the various marches for science around the world was scientists and science lovers really letting their inner science-punner out. Signs ran from the serious to the silly, but all carried a message of love for the oceans. I’m trying to collect as many as I can – so, please, post links to more in the comments below and I’ll add them!

Starting with some old friends

Of course I had to start with some cephalopod love.

Corals for science!

The Gates Lab brought it with some coral love. And they were not alone!

Love this sign from reader Louise Anderson!

The puns begin

I mean, who could disagree?

Some more serious support and organizations

Some great support for NOAA and SeaGrant in signs.

Lots of great signs about Sea Level Rise – and a wonderful slogan that will carry through many marches, I’m sure!

A great sign from Women for Working Oceans (W20) See also their excellent post

Getting a little more political

Who knew Dory was into politics?

Marine mammals represent!

Yay porpoises! Oddly, no dolphin signs…

And finally…KELP!

Oh yeah! The former Stach-labbers brought their kelp game! ’cause I’ll end with my sign…

He earned his Ph.D. at UC Davis working at the Bodega Marine Lab studying the consequences of losing predator diversity in the sea. He loves cooking, and recommends trying to make bacon dashi: put two rinced pieces of kelp (~6") in 8 cups water. Heat to a boil and turn off. Steep for 10-15 min (depending on how kelpy you like it). Remove kelp, add 3/4 lb smoky bacon. Simmer 30 minutes. Add mirin, soy sauce, sake as needed for flavor. Let cool and refrigerate. Skim off fat. Now you have an amazing base to cook fingerling potatoes and clams in. Top with chopped crispy bacon and green onions (or pureed with oil). And for, well, everything else.
