Details

A veteran adventurer like Bear Grylls might be able to clear trail with a full-size machete as easily as most people trim their fingernails. For the rest of us, a weekend spent swinging a big blade like that is a quick way to make enemies with whole set of shoulder muscles you never knew you had. Which is why Gerber paired down the Bear Grylls Compact Parang to more packable, convenient size.

The Parang is modeled after the tool Indonesian tribesman have carried into the jungles for generations.  By combining Gerber's decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls' adventure knowledge, this stout, sturdy blade acts as a lumberjack on the trail and a surgeon around camp. It can whack through thick grass and woody brush all day, then chop vegetables and whittle fire starter by night.

The Blade: Small and Sturdy
The size and shape of its 1-pound blade focuses weight toward the tip for more power behind every swing. And with a high carbon steel, full tang construction, it's not going to bend, bow or wobble when it strikes hardwood. Its compact 9.3" blade makes it easier to handle in dense underbrush.

Zero-Slip Grip
The grippy, rubberized handle fills your hand, and the oversized bolster and butt on either end of the handle keeps the tool snug in your palm, swing after sweaty swing. Finally, just to be on the safe side, a lanyard cord slips around your wrist for that last measure of no-slip insurance.

When you're not using the Parang to break trail or open a coconut, slide it into its military-grade, mildew-resistant sheath and strap it to your belt or the outside of your pack.

On the back of the sheath you'll find land-to-air rescue signals. It also comes with a copy of Bear's "Priorities of Survival" Pocket Guide to help you focus your attention on the details that matter most when you are in a jam.

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.
