The residents of California’s Santa Monica Bay have some rather noisy neighbors—and they're not happy about it.
The residents of California’s Santa Monica Bay have some rather noisy neighbors—and they’re not happy about it. That is the conclusion of a new studywhich shows that blue whales feeding off the coast of California stop calling to each other when a nearby naval base powers up its sonar for training exercises.
Antarctica’s oceans are under dire threat. To protect this pristine, yet threatened, ocean area we must create a network of marine reserves in the Antarctic oceans. If not, pollution and over-fishing will destroy these magnificent waters.
Scientists found not only that there are more parasites in the heavily fished waters and fish farms. They also found that parasites took a heavier toll there. Fish with tongue parasites ended up smaller and lighter in the heavily fished waters than infested fish in the refuge.
The world’s oceans may be turning acidic faster today from human carbon emissions than they did during four major extinctions in the last 300 million years, when natural pulses of carbon sent global temperatures soaring, says a new study in Science.
OCEAN ACIDIFYING: RAPIDLY RISING CO2 IN ATMOSPHERE CAUSING POTENTIAL CATASTROPHE http://sco.lt/8LsqbR
TED Talks Photographer Brian Skerry shoots life above and below the waves -- as he puts it, both the horror and the magic of the ocean. Sharing amazing, intimate shots of undersea creatures, he shows how powerful images can help make change.
Reconsidering the Consequences of Selective Fisheries
Fishing for a ‘balanced harvest’ can achieve productive fisheries as well as environmental conservation, an international scientific team reports today in the journal Science.
In contrast, increasing fishing selectivity to catch a small group of species and sizes neither maximises production nor minimises the ecological effects of fishing, according to the paper titled, Reconsidering the Consequences of Selective Fisheries.
Every year in Namibia, 86,000 Cape Fur Seal pups are butchered to death and only one man has the contract to turn their fur into so-called fashionable apparel. The Turkish and Australia based company Hatem Yavuz named after the owner Hatem Yavuz controls roughly 60 percent of the world’s seal market and processes 130,000 seal pelts every year in his Istanbul factory. Yavuz also has a hand in the Canadian seal market and claims to be proud of what he does
India loses millions of dollars annually to illegal foreign fishing. This free for all attitude towards fishing for lucrative species like tuna in our waters will surely lead to a total collapse of fisheries in India...
The threat of climate change is an increasingly important environmental issue for the globe. Because the economic questions involved have received relatively little attention, I have been writing a nontechnical book for people who would like to see how market-based approaches could be used to formulate policy on climate change.
For some fish, climate change may be the ultimate fertility aid. Or, at least, it could help them hit sperm speed records.
A new study of eastern mosquitofish living in southern France shows that male fish reared in warmer environments also churn out faster-swimming sperm. The results reveal, for the first time, how warming global temperatures could influence the performance of sex cells, potentially altering species’ ability to reproduce.
Scientists concerned dead animals may be linked to BP oil spill...
Reports of dozens of stranded dolphins, whales, and sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico continue to pile up in the first two months of 2012, with federal officials tallying 48 marine mammals, mostly dolphins, and 87 sea turtles. Only a handful of marine mammal strandings were of live animals that may have been saved. None of the turtles were alive.
