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.

A new study has found that turbulent mixing in the deep waters of the Southern Ocean, which has a profound effect on global ocean circulation and climate, varies with the strength of surface eddies – the ocean equivalent of storms in the atmosphere –
Marian Locksley's insight:
A new study has found that turbulent mixing in the deep waters of the Southern Ocean, which has a profound effect on global ocean circulation and climate, varies with the strength of surface eddies – the ocean equivalent of storms in the atmosphere – and possibly also wind speeds.
It is the first study to link eddies at the surface to deep mixing on timescales of months to decades.
This new insight into how the Southern Ocean behaves will allow scientists to build computer models that can better predict how our climate is going to change in the future.
The findings are published in the latest issue of Nature Geoscience.
