#Captured #carbon to feed #farmedfish? | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
A project that turns captured carbon dioxide into food for farmed fish is to be tested in Norway.
Marian Locksley's insight:

19.7.14 ~ http://2paragraphs.com/2014/07/science-turning-carbon-pollution-into-food/

 

One problem with farming though is that the fish do not naturally ingest enough Omega-3 (that famously healthful fatty acid), and so have to be given extra by farmers. And the Omega-3 supplement has become increasingly expensive as the demand for it also rises among human consumers.

#DeepSeaMining licences issued !!!  Damage to #Marine #Ecosystems ! | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
The UN's seabed authority issues exploration licences that accelerate a search for valuable minerals on the ocean floor.
Marian Locksley's insight:

One British firm, UK Seabed Resources, a subsidiary of the US defence giant Lockheed Martin, has secured exploration rights to an area larger than the entire UK.

 

This means that the total area of seabed now licensed in this new gold rush has reached an immense 1.2 million square kilometres under 26 different permits for minerals prospecting.

 

Deep sea mining is a new frontier in the quest for the precious raw materials needed for modern economies but environmental groups have long warned of the potential damage to marine ecosystems.

#FurSeals feel climate impacts ~ #foodSource #Krill  #BAS | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
Changes in the Antarctic climate are showing up in the fur seal population, say scientists who have studied the animals for 30 years on the British Overseas Territory of South Georgia.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Three decades of data show the females of this species are being born smaller, and those that do survive to motherhood are breeding later in life.

Subtle changes in their genetics are also being recorded.

Researchers tell the journal Nature that a shift in a dominant climate pattern has affected the supply of the seals' primary food source - krill.

"There has been a significant reduction in the size and the mass of the pups at birth," explained Dr Jaume Forcada from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
