#Effects of #dumping #radioactive waste in #Ocean need more study, scientists say | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Dumping radioactive waste into the world's seas began in 1946 with a scientific argument whose foundation was the vastness of the oceans. (Oh my...
Marian Locksley's insight:

"Unfavorable situations might arise if a package of radioactive material were found on the shore or recovered in a fisherman's net or by a trawler or dragger," it said. "Unsound rumors that marine food products contain sufficient quantities of radioisotopes to be detrimental to health should be countered rapidly and effectively."

Marian Locksley's insight:

Many of SeaWorld’s orcas were, indeed, born in captivity. Many of them are the offspring of Tilikum, who is used as SeaWorld’s breeding machine. SeaWorld’s marine mammals are often inbred, offspring of two mated members of the same family, resulting in a range of genetic abnormalities and mutations.

 

That is the truth of SeaWorld’s “groundbreaking success” in marine mammal reproduction.

#Ocean #Fertilization Insights

#Ocean #Fertilization Insights | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Peter Gross and associate from the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation did a presentation to the Squamish Streamkeepers as to how and why they did an experimental placing of iron sulfate and iron oxide in 2012 off the west side of Haida Gwai at the bequest of the Masset native tribe.

 

The Masset people had seen a long and steady decline in their local salmon runs in spite of much money and time spent on improving the fresh water habitat of their streams. If improving fresh water streams had little success in bringing back their precious salmon food, perhaps improving ocean survival of the salmon would give better results. Funding was available through European carbon credits to finance this experiment and basic groundwork on ocean fertilization had already been done by others.

Research had long shown that the key to strong salmon runs was vibrant production of phytoplankton which in turn fed the zooplankton (animals like krill that grazed on the phytoplankton) which in turn fed salmon, other fishes, birds and mammals such as whales. A premise already learned is that phytoplankton has only a few basic needs-water, sunlight and iron.


Via Mariaschnee
Marian Locksley's insight:

 These waters turn out to be much richer than previously thought. They have the long sun drenched hours of summer needed for vibrant plankton growth, and, if iron is added, the Gulf of Alaska can become a massive feeding area as some research suggests

#Rise in #Basking #Shark #sightings * | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Sightings of basking sharks off Scotland's west coast are increasing, according to the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust.
Marian Locksley's insight:

They are the world's second biggest fish - behind only the whale shark - and can grow to 11m (36ft) and weigh up to seven tonnes.


The survey also recorded 321 encounters with harbour porpoise, 34 of minke whale, 32 of basking shark, 22 of common dolphin and six of white-beaked dolphin.

 

The trust said: "A major encounter - in August near the Isle of Skye - was a rare sighting of three members of a group of killer whales known as the West Coast Community.

 

"This very small group consisting of just five males and four females is thought to be the UK's only known resident group, but, as no calves have been seen within the group, it is likely to go extinct in our lifetime."

 

The surveys are conducted from the research vessel, Silurian.
