What really happens to #sharks in a storm ~ Young sharks flee their nurseries & return when passed.

What really happens to #sharks in a storm ~ Young sharks flee their nurseries & return when passed. | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
With plans to create a sequel to the absurd B-movie hit of the year Sharknado already under way, marine biologists explain what sharks really do when storms approach.
Marian Locksley's insight:

It is probably the most absurd film plot of the year: a freak storm lifts hundreds of man-eating sharks from the ocean and carries them into the centre of Los Angeles.

 

The result is a farcical made-for-television B-movie featuring tornado propelled Selachii that has become a global sensation.

 

But what really happens when sharks encounter a storm out at sea?

As hurricane season in the North Atlantic is under way, marine biologists have revealed details of how these predators behave during adverse weather.

 

Sharks can predict the weather

Sharks have an array of highly attuned senses and one in particular, known as the lateral line, can help them sense small changes in pressure.

This is a row of small pores that lead into a fluid filled canal running along each side of the shark’s body.

 

Most fish use this to detect disturbances in the water, which cause changes in water pressure, allowing them to detect threats or pretty.

In sharks this is particularly sensitive and allows the sharks to sense wounded or sick fish from the vibrations they produce.

 

However, scientists have also found some evidence that sharks can detect a drop in air pressure that may indicate an approaching hurricane or storm.

 

Young sharks flee their nurseries

A study in 2001 in young blacktip sharks at Mote Marine Laboratory showed that the fish take evasive action when faced with an approaching hurricane.

 

Normally the juvenile sharks stay in shallow water nurseries where they are protected from larger predators and have plenty of small prey to eat.

 

However, as a tropical storm approached Terra Ceia Bay, where one such shark nursery was, in 2001, the young blacktips fled into deeper water several hours before the storm arrived.

 

Tagging showed that it was the only time the sharks had left the nursery and that this corresponded to a dramatic drop in barometric pressure proceeding the storm.

 

Scientists believe this is because storms can be dangerous in shallow water as the winds cause powerful waves and currents that could sweep the sharks onto shore or into rocks.

 

When the storm had passed, all of the sharks then returned to the nursery.

Dr Smith found similar results in juvenile lemon sharks.

Fukushima Crisis New Blow to Fishermen's Hopes: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/fukushima-crisis-blow-fishermens-hopes-20089958

 

Radioactive cesium doesn’t sink to the sea floor, so fish swim through it and ingest it through their gills or by eating organisms that have already ingested it.

 

It is a compound that does occur naturally in nature, however, the levels of cesium found in the tuna in 2012 had levels 3 percent higher than is usual.

 

Measurements for this year haven’t been made available, or at least none that I have been able to find. I went looking for the effects of ingesting cesium.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Policing the Open Seas

At the crux of the issue is a lack of enforcement. Beyond the inherent difficulty of policing the open ocean, an absence of global coordination perpetuates this problem. Along with weak international governance, which comprises a patchwork of authorities and regulations, there are issues of poor cooperation, whether due to limited resources or interest, in getting individual nation-states to enforce IUU regulations at their ports.

 

This is especially the case in certain regions, such as along the west coast of Africa and around the Pacific Islands, where fish habitats are lush and the enforcement capacity of sovereign authorities is minimal or nonexistent.

A few recent enforcement successes have been heartening, however. Last spring, a major tuna-fishing vessel that was suspected of illegal fishing in Liberian waters was denied access to ports in Seychelles and Mauritius, thanks in large part to a regional partnership called FISH-i: Africa.NOAA has pledged to work with ten nations with historically weak enforcement of IUU fishing, and six of these have already begun to take strong corrective actions against vessels suspected of illicit activities.

 

Many other governmental and non-governmental entities have begun to make combating illegal fishing a priority, as global fish stocks decline and profits to be made by illegal fishers grow.
