Thousands of Sea Lion Pups Dead From Starvation - Not Enough Fish In The Sea Climate Change

Thousands of Sea Lion Pups Dead From Starvation - Not Enough Fish In The Sea Climate Change | Wonderful Wild Life | Scoop.it

August 16, 2013

When the sea lions converged on this most westerly of southern California’s Channel Islands in May 2012, as they do every spring, there was no hint of anything amiss. A year later, thousands of pups – perhaps as many as 70 percent of the newborns – were dead. The struggle to survive led desperate pups from their sandy nursery into the churning, dangerous sea, long before they were ready.

Between January and June, five rescue centers along the southern California coast, from Santa Barbara to San Diego, took in more than 1,500 stranded pups – five times more than normal... http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/08/island-sea-lion-pupdate/

OVERFISHING, NO FOOD FOR SEALS: Baby Seals washed up in Europe, too weak to care for themselves. The incident is an extreme example among a recent increase in pup strandings, experts say. Overfishing has reduced the seals' available prey, and the polluted fish the animals do catch often make them sick. "In the last two or three years we have seen more and more seals wash up too weak to look after themselves http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/01/pictures/120118-baby-seals-netherlands-stranded-animals/

Paige Anderson's curator insight, October 2, 2013 4:03 PM

Its sad that so many pups died.  But also reading that they took in so many pups to feed and give them temporary homes.  But when you have to put them back in the sea would they know how to get food?  Also would there still be fish for them to eat?

                                               ----------------------------

 

A growing body of science has implicated neonicotinoids (neonics), which are used in agriculture and also for cosmetic purposes on garden plants, as a key factor in recent global bee die-offs. Beekeepers across the country reported losses of 40-90 percent of their bees last winter. The European Union is set to suspend the use of three neonic pesticides later this year, after a scientific review by European Food Safety Authority found that neonicotinoids pose an unacceptably high risk to bees.

Scientists accuse ministers of putting UK seas and marine life in peril

Scientists accuse ministers of putting UK seas and marine life in peril | Wonderful Wild Life | Scoop.it

August 3, 2013 The Observer

Habitats where seahorses, crabs and dolphins thrive face destruction as plans for protection zones are watered down... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/aug/03/scientists-ministers-seas-marine-life

 

"Fish such as skate and halibut once grew to be metres long and were common right up to the coast," said Roberts. "Today, the skate hangs on only in a few places. Wolffish and conger eel have been depleted to the point of rarity, while angel sharks are now completely extinct in UK waters. Fan shells and oysters used to cover the seabeds around Britain, while pilchards and herring were also enormously abundant and sustained an armada of predatory birds, dolphins and whales. However, numbers have now dwindled to a scarcity that would horrify a 19th-century fisherman."

Overfishing and pollution have played significant roles in this destruction. But the nation's fleet of bottom-dredging trawlers is blamed most for the critical state of coastal waters. Their huge metallic claws, designed to catch scallops, also scoop up indiscriminate numbers of young fish, corals, seafans and other creatures. The trawlers also pulverise the reefs that offer protection for many species of fish and shellfish.

"They create a wasteland wherever they trawl," said Lissa Batey of conservation alliance the Wildlife Trusts.

A Farm That Extends Deep Into The Sea Is Trying to Create Ocean Vetarianism. .

At the moment, commercial fishing picks off top predators such as tuna, while ravaging the rest by towing miles of drift nets or dragging metal chains on the seabed. This age of hunting and gathering is now coming to an end whether we like it or not. The ocean’s bounty has proved not only finite: it simply no longer exists. Decades of research about the world’s fisheries show most populations have been fished to their limit, or are in collapse. Global marine catches, which peaked in the mid-1990s, are now in a slow decline, states the FAO’s 2012 review (PDF).... http://www.fastcoexist.com/1682596/a-farm-that-extends-deep-into-the-sea-is-trying-to-create-ocean-vegetarianism

Just because there are no more fish doesn’t mean the ocean is done as a food source. Because a small amount of ocean surface means a lot of space below, seaweed farms could be the food source of the future.
