[Global] Scientists have unveiled the most comprehensive analysis ever undertaken of the world’s ocean plankton, the tiny organisms Continue reading Huge study of tiny plankton a ‘treasure trove’
Tasmania is not exactly lacking in natural beauty, but sometimes it just seems to be showing off. Last week, four photographers were attempting to capture the Aurora Australis when they came across something even more rare, and arguably more spectacular. Continue reading Spectacular Photograph Captures Bioluminescent Plankton And Aurora At The Same Time
Dumping clay into the water when there is a plankton bloom, like last month, when 600 tonnes of fish died, could be a lifeline for fish farmers in Singapore.
Clay flocculation, also known as clay Continue reading Clay particles could help fish farmers tackle deadly plankton blooms
SINGAPORE — Following the mass fish deaths that affected farmers along the eastern Johor Straits over the weekend, other marine wildlife, including species such as Frogfish, horseshoe crab and puffer fish, have washed up on Pasir Ris beach.
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said the post-mortem results of fish samples collected from the affected farms indicated the Continue reading More dead fish, marine life at Pasir Ris beach
Eerie fluorescent blue patches of water glimmering off Hong Kong’s seashore are magnificent, disturbing and potentially toxic, marine biologists say.
The glow is an indicator of a harmful Continue reading Fluorescent algal bloom gives waves an eerie glow in Hong Kong
Canadian lakes are suffering serious damage from a takeover by a jelly-like organism. The cause is a shortage of an element that is often a blight in the water supply: Calcium.
Too much calcium and other dissolved Continue reading Plankton That Turns Water Into Jelly Pollutes Canadian Lakes
Dead zones, or marine areas with levels of dissolved oxygen so low few things can exist, are becoming increasingly common as climate changes and soaring pollution from human populations combine to put record stress on waterways. This trend is alarming in most places, because marine life Continue reading Climate change disrupts Arabian Sea with little-known, voracious plankton
CANADA – Marine Harvest Canada (MHC) is estimating a loss of up to 280,000 fish of an average weight of 4.1 kilograms due to a harmful plankton bloom at Marsh Bay near Port Hardy, BC.
