Dr Tracy Ainsworth stated “it is very likely that these microorganisms play a vital role in the capacity of coral to recovering from bouts of bleaching caused by rising temperatures.” Corals rely on these good bacteria’s crucially although we don’t yet understand these microbe’s ell enough to know how they influence coral survival, which is vital in maintaining the food web of the Great Barrier Reef. These good bacteria as well as other decomposers break down dead organics material and turn nutrients to the sediment. This energy is then obtained by the producers and the cycle begins
It is important that coral reefs recover once they have been damaged, some of the consequences are; less diverse reef communities, decline in fisheries, tourism and coastal protection (Hoegh-Guldberg et al, 2007). There are 5 potential predictors for how well a coral reef will recover after bleaching (Graham, Nash & Kool, 2011). Firstly, the reef characteristic, if the skeleton of the reef is still present it is likely to maintain ecological processes and therefore recover rapidly (Graham, Nash & Kool, 2011). Secondly, the connectivity of the reef, high connectivity of coral reefs is important for recovery, isolated reefs are more likely to have a slow recovery (Graham, Nash & Kool, 2011). Thirdly, the ecological characteristics of the reef,
There are both reviews and studies conducted on fisheries that employ RBM to see the positive impact it has had. A review, Fish and Fisheries, concluded that the fisheries that have adopted rights-based management have a lower case of fish overexploitation. It has also led to improving fishing business, livelihoods and fishing communities. (EDF,
Commercial fishing is defined as the harvesting of wild fish and other seafood for commercial profit, and provides a large quantity of food to many people around the world. In comparison to commercial fishing, aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms and populating them in controlled environments. The aquaculture industry in the United States is primarily dominated by freshwater catfish farming producing more than 1 billion dollars. Although aquaculture seems beneficial, it has many negative impacts on the environment that are threatening the marine ecosystem. Marine aquaculture is the farming of seafood species that are indigenous to the ocean.
Marine biologists study, observe, and help animals. They may find solutions for a disease or clean up an oil spill. The world needs marine biologists to protect and preserve underwater ecosystems. When I grow up I want to be able to help the ocean environment by becoming a marine biologist. To become a marine biologist, you need a lot of education.
Lakes, mountain tops and man created reserves are seen as continental islands. Oceanic islands have submerged from the ocean beds through decreasing sea levels and do not break away from the mainland but remains isolated. Island, hold a significant scientific value as they are rich in species which differ from the mainland. (Guo, 2015). Another example of an island includes tide pools.
If more people knew about this situation, more support would grow to save these gorgeous fish. It is hard to pass laws and regulations, without support. The lawmakers and officials only assist the side with more people backing it up. As of this moment fishermen rule the board. The only thing that can change the way our industries operate would be if the people rose up and fought for
Indeed some of his reasoning does make sense, but according to me his reasons seem very theoretical or rather hypothetical and not applicable in the real world. I believe that marine parks should not be closed down. Since, they allow public access to see these animals, they act as tourist attraction spots with economical and financial benefits, they do not hinder scientific
Although, there are still some things we, as humans, are given naturally that we cannot just avoid or take away. These are our natural primary goods such as intelligence, health, or strength, and they sometimes do influence our social standing or success in life. This made Rawls’s argument instable, and in order to fix it he came up with the difference principle which states that such inequalities are acceptable, as long as they enhance the wellbeing of the least advantaged. The idea of being ambition-sensitive and endowment-insensitive are key to his overall position on distributive justice. For Rawls, distributive justice means a world
For example, the impact on small fishing villages would be an economic impact, however it if was effecting a unique culture within a fishing then it would immediately become a cultural one. So I believe the issue of the economic impact on such fishing villages is a culture one, but an economic issue. However, if the economic impact did breach the cultural activities and change a way of life, then it could certainly be considered to be a cultural issue. The issues discussed could be balanced by using the cultural argument to oppose the ban on Whaling hunting. However, this is certainly one issue where world opinion is certainly overwhelmingly supportive of the conservation of whales.
