Amazing PHOTO: Manta Rays in Trouble From Overfishing - VIDEO | Oceans | Scoop.it

July 12, 2013 Stop Shark Finning

Manta rays, surely one of the oceans most impressive and majestic creatures, are in trouble from overfishing. Both of the manta rays (the larger Manta birostris, and the smaller Manta alfredi) are classified among the Elasmobranchii (sharks and rays). Giant manta rays can grow to a massive 7 metres in width, however nowadays the amount of overfishing in the oceans means that there are few mantas that ever get the chance to grow that big.

The threat from overfishing is due to both so-called bycatch and targeted fishing. Due to the fact that they are unable to swim backwards, manta rays are especially prone to getting tangled in fishing lines and gill nets intended for smaller fish. Demand has risen in China for the mantas’ gill-rakers, which are the cartilaginous structures that increase the surface area of the gills to allow more oxygen to be extracted from the water. Targeted fisheries have developed in several countries in order to feed the demand from the Chinese medicine market..... http://www.stopsharkfinning.net/manta-rays-in-trouble-from-overfishing/

The Loss of Ocean Species is Staggering

The Loss of Ocean Species is Staggering | Oceans | Scoop.it

-Financial Times

Humans have gained unprecedented supremacy over the seas in a short space of time, thanks to potent technological advances such as satellite tracking devices and engines so formidable they can drag nets big enough to engulf a cathedral. Add in the impact of pollution, from the likes of fertiliser run-off or discarded plastic, and the oceans have changed more in the past 30 years than in all of human history.

In most places, the oceans have lost more than 75 per cent of their “megafauna” – large creatures such as whales, sharks, dolphins, rays and turtles. Numbers of some species – oceanic whitetip sharks; American sawfish – are down by as much as 99 per cent. For every 20 leatherback turtles in the Pacific 50 years ago, only one remains...http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/9601c144-9dcd-11e1-838c-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1vqzpHIBt
