  • Marine reserves improve with age

    Older marine reserves are more effective at protecting fish than newer reserves, according to a recent study. Reserves should be maintained for at least 15 years to allow fish numbers, particularly large, locally fished species, to recover. Marine reserves are established to protect marine biodiversity, including the conservation of fish species vulnerable to overfishing. By banning, or only ...

  • Finding the ASX200 for marine ecosystems

    The state of an ecosystem can be understood by measuring the right ecological characteristics, just as the ASX200 index shows the state of the Australian stock market by following 200 selected stocks. CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship scientist Dr Keith Hayes, one of the leaders of the project, says the difficult part is selecting which characteristics to track. “Ecosystems respond to multiple ...

  • Assessing the effectiveness of marine reserves

    Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are intended to conserve marine habitats and fish populations and many prohibit fishing inside their borders. However, according to a recent study, local fishing activity can become concentrated around the edges of MPAs, which can have a significant impact on their effectiveness as fishery management tools. MPAs are designed to protect population and breeding centres ...

  • Marine species richness is not highest at equator

    New research indicates that zones closest to the equator have less species diversity than previously thought. A research team from the University of Auckland has reviewed 27 previously published studies and used the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) to mine data on 65,000 marine species. The team, including doctoral candidate Chhaya Chaudhary, researcher Dr Hanieh Saeedi and Associate ...

  • Lugworms harmed by marine microplastic pollution

    Microplastic pollution impairs the heath of the marine worms that help maintain sediments for other creatures, new research suggests. This study shows that the energy reserves of lugworms living in sediment contaminated with microplastic particles were reduced by up to 50%. Microplastic pollution, fragments of less than 5 mm, is of increasing concern. Although the pieces are typically formed as ...
