PIRatE Lab's curator insight, January 10, 2014 9:37 PM

We have had serious issues with larval survivorship in the Bay.  There have been numerous local stressors for herring (and realted species).  For example, the Cosco Busan oil spill had significant ecotoxicological impacts on neustonic fish larvae.

#GoatIsland #Jamaica ~ #Mangroves #Environment #PortProject | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Massive port project on Jamaica's Goat Islands threatens livelihoods, wildlife; NGOs fight back. http://t.co/OaGd3MNjH7 @ecoindex
Marian Locksley's insight:

Parchment speculates that public opinion has been partially influenced by previous development failures in Jamaica. In 2011, for example, Jamaica’s newest cruise ship port was opened in Falmouth, a coastal town on the north shore. To drum up local support, developers promised the local community that the port would bring new jobs and increased income from tourism. However, this has not been the case.


Tourists who arrive at the port tend to dine and shop at expensive international chains along the pier and go on excursions organized by the cruise lines, often having zero interaction with locally-owned businesses. In addition, construction of the port caused major damage to the coral reefs and mangroves around Falmouth. The communities of Portland Bight, fearing a parallel situation on the Goat Islands, remain skeptical of any economic benefits from the proposed transshipment hub.

Marian Locksley's insight:

The Russian-owned trawler Oleg Naydenov moored in Dakar. The ship was boarded after it was accused of illegally fishing in Senegalese waters.


Greenpeace, which says it supports Senegal's move, denied strongly that it had had any contact with the Senegalese government. "These accusations are a way for the Russian government to avoid taking responsibility," said Ahmed Diame, Greenpeace Africa oceans campaigner.

The Ross Sea in Antarctica has been considered by many to be the world's only body of water not altered or damaged by humans.
Marian Locksley's insight:

A more sobering discovery is that little if any of the ocean remains unaffected by fisheries, agricultural runoff, sewage, aqua culture and industry.

'The scariest estimates are that we've eaten our way through 90% of the world's top predatory fishes - tunas, groupers and sharks - since 1950. The most optimistic estimates aren't much better.'
