Marian Locksley's insight:

The Fisheries Department is also looking into other sustainable fishing measures such as catch limits and closed seasons for fishing to protect species of fish during vulnerable times in their life cycle.

#Rapid #Plankton #Decline Puts The #Ocean’s #FoodWeb In #Peril  !!! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it

The microscopic sea creatures form the foundation of marine food systems, and their decline is likely due to global warming.

 

The dramatic decline happened in the North Atlantic in first half of this year, scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) told the AP. It also coincided with sea surface temperatures from the mid-Atlantic to the Gulf of Maine that were the third-warmest on record, after an all-time high in 2012. Further south in the Atlantic there was more cooling, but overall warming throughout the oceans remains on a steady upward trend.

Steve Kingsley's curator insight, November 27, 2013 9:09 PM

I didn't know but here it is:  Phytoplankton accounts for roughly half the organic matter produced on Earth, produce half the oxygen in the atmosphere, draw carbon dioxide out of the air, and serve as the foundational food source for most of the oceans’ food webs.

#Canada's Subarctic #Lakes are Drying Out

#Canada's Subarctic #Lakes are Drying Out | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Atypically light snowfall over recent winters in Canada's subarctic regions has led many of the region's lakes to dry out, prompting researchers to worry (RT @Coffeewarblers: Canada's subarctic lakes are drying out.
Marian Locksley's insight:

If the trend of dry summers and less heavy snowfall continues in the region, the researchers think many of the region's shallower subarctic lakes could dry out completely.

 

"It's difficult to predict all the repercussions of this habitat loss," Bouchard said, "but it's certain that the ecological consequences will be significant."
