15-year analysis of blue whale range off California finds conflict with shipping lanes

15-year analysis of blue whale range off California finds conflict with shipping lanes | Marine Conservation Research | Scoop.it
A comprehensive analysis of the movements of blue whales off the West Coast found that their favored feeding areas are bisected by heavily used shipping lanes, increasing the threat of injury and mortality. But moving the shipping lanes off Los Angeles and San Francisco to slightly different areas -- at least, during summer and fall when blue whales are most abundant -- could significantly decrease the probability of ships striking the whales.

Microplastics worse for crabs and other marine life than previously thought: Enter through gills

Microplastics worse for crabs and other marine life than previously thought: Enter through gills | Marine Conservation Research | Scoop.it
The tiny plastic particles polluting our seas are not only orally ingested by marine creatures, but also enter their systems through their gills, according to a new study. When microplastics are drawn in through this method they take over six times longer to leave the body compared with standard digestion.
