That more diverse an aquatic area, the more nutrients make it to our plates
Giant patches of plastic floating in the ocean have become home to an experiment in a new hybrid ecosystem, made up of stowaway species from coastal environments and organisms that dwell in the middle of the Pacific. Meet the "neopelagic" world.
Desalinating the oceans is energy-hungry business, so why not economically and sustainably capture the water vapor floating above the oceans with cruise ship-sized structures?
Researchers calculate that protecting just 5% more of the ocean could boost fisheries by as much as 20%.
Researchers demonstrate how to tell damaged reefs from healthy ones using relatively cheap underwater recorders paired with new computer programs.
In reef restoration, as in the stock market, scientists find that a diverse and flexible portfolio is the best way to hedge ones bets in a changing world.
A team of scientists dubbed “Nerds Without Borders” developed a sensor—disguised as a turtle egg—to predict when hatchlings head for the sea.
A new study finds that species with exceptionally high nutrient levels overlap with those associated with low carbon emissions—pointing toward a more sustainable diet.
