Before even taking one look at Dr. Paul Yancey's Deep-Sea Biology page, one really gets the feeling that he's a marine biology and oceanography expert.  After all, he did get his PhD studying biochemistry of fish and sharks at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He's currently a Professor of Biology at Whitman College in Washington. He also knows all about current issues facing our ocean and he is a devout marine conservationist.  He's pretty much experienced every aspect of the ocean, from researching sharks to completing deep sea shipboard research along the West Coast (California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, to name a few.) 

He knows tons of great facts and has analyzed marine specimens with the best of them!

Not certain he's a true marine expert yet? I have proof! Just check out his fine answers below!

We also watched Jacques Cousteau's show on TV. Plus my mother was a cell biologist. All this inspired a life-long interest in biology, especially in the oceans.

According to Sipadan Water Village Resort divemaster Bobby Joanes Basolius, 30, the coral transplanting exercise was initially popular with Japanese companies and usually done in conjunction with the Mabul Marine Day, now in its 12th year.

Miami, Florida - Add one more agent to the list of things damaging the Keys corals: cold water.

For years, researchers have documented the degradation of Florida's corals due to disease, warming water temperatures and other causes. This winter, extremely cold water is killing many coral species, particularly in shallow water.
