This mobile lab will drift through the oceans and offer scientists a permanent living space among the waves. Of the 190 vertical feet 100 of it will sit below the surface of the ocean. And researchers and submarines will even be able to launch from underneath the oceans surface. There has never been a cooler time to be a marine biologist. At this point you're basically Captain Nemo, minus the angst towards civilization.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Eye-opening twitter thread about professor doing a class on fish fraud.
