Let's Talk About You and Sharks, American Oceanography Special Educational Newsletter.
Kraft, Thomas L.; Miloy, Leatha
American Oceanography, v5 n5 l97l
This special educational newsletter of the American Society for Oceanography presents information on marine oriented subjects, primarily for reading by junior high and secondary school students. Major articles consider the habits and stinging effects of sharks, jelly fish, and sting rays, and what one should do if stung by these fish while swimming. Additional feature articles for the summer season examine the presence and dangers of rip tides or currents and pleasure boating rules and safety. Other articles discuss treatment for drowning, use of a spear for fishing, the implications of using the deep ocean for disposal of organic wastes, hyperbaric medicine, catfish, and treasure hunting on the shore and at sea.
