Warming Antarctic seas likely to impact on krill habitats

Warming Antarctic seas likely to impact on krill habitats | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it
Antarctic krill are usually less than 6 cm in length but their size belies the major role they play in sustaining much of the life in the Southern Ocean. They are the primary food source for many species of whales, seals, penguins and fish.

Fish farms cause rapid sea-level rise

Fish farms cause rapid sea-level rise | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it
Aquaculture makes China's Yellow River delta sink.
Amocean's insight:

Groundwater extraction for fish farms can cause land to sink at rates of a quarter-metre a year, according to a study of China’s Yellow River delta1. The subsidence is causing local sea levels to rise nearly 100 times faster than the global average.

Global sea levels are rising at about 3 millimetres a year owing to warming waters and melting ice. But some places are seeing a much faster rise — mainly because of sinking land. Bangkok dropped by as much as 12 centimetres a year in the 1980s thanks to groundwater pumping.
