Are marine ecosystems headed toward a new productivity regime? Model calculations suggest massive changes in the oceans' more distant future

Phytoplankton have been projected to produce less organic material as the oceans' temperatures rise -- with carry-on effects for higher levels of the food web. Based on new climate model simulations, a team of scientists suggests now that this assumption might be misleading. According to the researchers, ocean productivity might be pushed into a completely new regime in the more distant future.

Remove ‘Ghost Fishing’ Nets that Threaten Marine Life

Remove ‘Ghost Fishing’ Nets that Threaten Marine Life | marine biology | Scoop.it
Countless nets exist under oceans after being abandoned or lost by fishermen. These nets pose a threat to marine life because they trap these animals making them unable to break through the mesh.
Gaye Rosier's insight:

Kenna Eco Diving marine conservation volunteers found one during a cleanup dive. Luckily there were no species trapped in it and we were able to remove it from the ocean.

Ocean acidification may cause dramatic changes to phytoplankton: Many species may die out and others may migrate significantly as ocean acidification intensifies

Marine biologists have found that an increased ocean acidification will dramatically affect global populations of phytoplankton -- microorganisms on the ocean surface that make up the base of the marine food chain.
