  • Deeper seafloor habitats most at risk from bottom trawling

    Bottom trawling—dragging nets along the sea floor—reduces biodiversity most severely in deeper, species-rich habitats, a study suggests. New research in the Dutch North Sea has shown that this type of trawling had less effect on species richness in shallow areas with coarse sediments. These results suggest that efforts should be made to reduce trawling in these kinds of sensitive ...

  • Toxicity tests improve the assessment of harbour sediment quality

    Harbour sediments should be tested for their toxic effects on living organisms in addition to being subject to the chemical, physical and biological tests usually conducted to assess water quality, according to recent research from Portugal. This would provide a better environmental assessment of dredged material to help guide port authorities’ decisions on its disposal. Under the Water ...

  • EPA to Remove Mercury from Bottom of Pompton Lake in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey

  • Trawling threatens to destroy deep-sea ecosystems

    Intensive trawling could turn seafloor ecosystems into ‘deserts of the sea’, new research warns. The study found that continuous bottom trawling for shrimp in a deep-sea Spanish canyon has damaged the foundations of marine ecosystems by dramatically reducing seafloor biodiversity and nutrients in sediment. Increasingly, fishers around the world are taking bottom trawling further, and ...
