Why #Dolphin Killings at the #Cove Have Dropped to a Record Low,Long-lived, slow to #reproduce! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
The number of animals taken into captivity also has fallen, but two months remain in the killing season.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Sept. 1 until the end of 2014, hunters released 85 dolphins back to sea. One explanation, according to Palmer’s blog: “Taiji is having trouble selling dolphin meat, due to Earth Island’s Save Japan Dolphins Campaign and other organizations that are educating Japanese consumers about the dangers of eating mercury-contaminated dolphin meat.”

 

Sources in Taiji have told Earth Island that the market for dolphin meat continues to decline. “So rather than fill up their freezer units with dolphin meat that cannot be sold,” Palmer wrote, “the dolphin hunters release the animals.”

 

Given the relatively low numbers and dipping demand for dolphin meat, are the drives perhaps reaching some kind of tipping point where they’re economically no longer practical?

#Jellyfish (sea jellies) 'can #sense #OceanCurrents

#Jellyfish (sea jellies) 'can #sense #OceanCurrents | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
A jellyfish tagging study reveals the creatures' ability to swim against the current when forming their submarine swarms, say researchers.
Marian Locksley's insight:

What is not yet clear is how exactly the jellyfish work out which way to travel.

The scientists think the animals might sense the current across the surface of their bodies. They also speculate that the jellyfish might use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate - an ability seen in some other migrating marine species, including sea turtles.

The ultimate aim of studying and tracking swimming jellyfish is to improve the forecasting of jellyfish blooms, which have increased in frequency over the past decade, disrupting fisheries and stinging swimmers.

An investigation of a 415-million-year-old fish skull strongly suggests that the last common ancestor of all jawed vertebrates, including humans, was not very shark-like. It adds further weight to the growing idea that sharks are not 'primitive.'
