Destruction and recovery of kelp forests driven by changes in sea urchin behavior

Destruction and recovery of kelp forests driven by changes in sea urchin behavior | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
A dramatic outbreak of kelp-eating sea urchins along the Central Coast of California in 2014, leading to a significant reduction in the region's kelp forests, was driven primarily by the emergence of sea urchins from their hiding places rather than an increase in the urchin population. In subsequent years, sea urchin movements enabled kelp forest recovery at sites that had been denuded 'urchin barrens.' Those are among the key findings of a long-term study of sea urchins and kelp forest dynamics in Monterey Bay.

'Safety in numbers' tactic keeps Pacific salmon safe from predators

'Safety in numbers' tactic keeps Pacific salmon safe from predators | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
A new study that leverages historical data has found unique support for a 'safety in numbers' strategy, where Pacific salmon living in larger groups have a lower risk of being eaten by predators. But for some salmon species, schooling comes at the cost of competition for food, and those fish may trade safety for a meal.

Why a carbon dioxide removal code of conduct is needed | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Seas hold over 50 times the amount of CO2 than the atmosphere, so we'd be wise to look at ocean-based carbon dioxide removal to tackle climate change.

A United Nations Ocean Conference even: Ocean Observing for Ocean Sustainability

Summary
Many challenges face the ocean and the planet today – in the realms of climate change, fisheries, energy and mineral resources, biodiversity, human health, pollution and more. Solutions to these challenges will come from a deeper understanding of the ocean, its dynamics and vulnerabilities. Observations of ocean physics, biogeochemistry, marine life, human interactions and disturbances underpin the ability to effectively benefit from and conserve the ocean. Under the Decade for Ocean Science, ocean observing has tackled integration of disciplines and communities, technological innovation, generational shifts in ocean leadership, and improved access, equity, and capacity for many nations.

This session held at the United Nations Ocean Conference will give voice to many perspectives on ocean observing needs, with particular emphasis on island nations. Small island state representatives and others will evaluate progress made and identify needs, opportunities and priority actions going forward. Representatives of key ocean observing institutions (Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego @Scripps Oceanography GEOMAR, IFREMER @Ifremer
, NOC, WHOI* @Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will provide feedback on how their institutions can work together to address these needs.

WASINI, Kenya (AP) — Minutes away from the Kenyan mainland, the densely forested island of Wasini is one of several starting lines for coral reef restoration efforts in the western Indian Ocean. On a rare calm day during the normally turbulent monsoon season, four divers, carrying measuring equipment, shoes and toothbrushes descended in turns to the sea-bed reef restoration site on the Shimoni channel.
