David Emerson said: "It is important that we explore ideas for climate change mitigation that can supplement the effects of decreasing carbon emissions," External link

eurekalert Wednesday, April 3, 2019 5:13:00 PM CEST

David Emerson said: "This research has tremendous potential to integrate disciplines from phytoplankton ecology, to atmospheric science, to engineering," "At minimum, we would gain a better sense of how the ocean works. At best, iron additions would act on a short time scale to help mitigate climate change" External link

David Emerson said: "In addition to cutting carbon emissions, we need to remove more carbon from the atmosphere to limit global climate change," "These geoengineering approaches are not solutions to the whole problem, but they are potential ways we can mitigate the worst effects" External link

David Emerson said: "It's important to start investing in thoughtful and extensive research programs now," "The worst thing would be if, in several decades, people faced with horrible consequences of climate change started taking dramatic action without understanding the long-term effects. We need to explore and develop a continuum of solutions, from actions we can take as individuals to large-scale efforts" External link

Michael Krutzen said: "Survival and reproduction are important parameters that inform us about the health of a population," "It seems that extreme weather events appear to threaten marine mammal populations in their existence. If we want to conserve these populations, we have to think how the frequency of such events can be kept at a minimum" External link

Patrick Rafter said: “When we say iron is recycled in the system more efficiently than other elements, it doesn’t sound like this big, profound statement, but for those of us who have been studying these communities, it’s actually a very important insight into how the system works, how marine plant life functions in the ocean,” “This microbial community has figured out a way to fertilize itself with iron” External link

Patrick Rafter said: “What happens in a decade or a century or a million years?” “Our model proves that if you change the rate at which waters are brought up to the surface, you can allow for more or less iron recycling and self-fertilization by phytoplankton. And then you get more nitrogen consumption and, ultimately, more of this plant growth that can affect the ocean/atmosphere partitioning of carbon dioxide – which impacts the global climate” External link

Deng Palomares said: “Meanwhile most of the small-scale fisheries catches are consumed by people and sometimes the fish discarded by industrial vessels is precisely what the small boats would catch. Our analysis shows that 36 per cent of marine catches consumed directly by people between 2010 and 2014 were caught by artisanal, subsistence and recreational fisheries,” External link

FIS Thursday, February 14, 2019 3:28:00 AM CET

Deng Palomares said (about Indian Ocean): “This is an important figure because it is a part of the marine catch that is directly used for consumption by very poor people,” “It is crucial to be aware of this because, particularly in small island developing states in the Pacific and Indian Ocean, these catches are taken by women who contribute directly to the food security of their families” External link

Jim Reynolds says: "We believe that a number of factors might influence the size of the breeding population of sooty terns on the island but we wanted to understand such factors in greater detail, resulting in causal explanations of the tern population decline over the past 60 years," External link

eurekalert Monday, February 4, 2019 1:37:00 AM CET

Jim Reynolds explains: "There are several factors that could have led to the terns eating less fish," "Part of the answer will lie in the rapid growth of industrial fishing for species like tuna over past decades - but ecosystems are complex, and other forms of global change, such as the warming of the oceans may also play a significant part in this story. As oceans warm, the movements of top predators and the fish on which they forage are changing, possibly making it more difficult for the terns to follow them in search of food" External link

eurekalert Monday, February 4, 2019 1:37:00 AM CET

Jim Reynolds adds: "This is a complicated story that shows just how fragile and delicate the marine ecosystem is. Our findings strongly reinforce the need for a large marine reserve where it would be possible to police fishing more effectively and do much more to protect these vulnerable species" External link

Torkel Gissel Nielsen says: "It can have major consequences for the entire ecosystem if microplastics affect zooplankton negatively, as plankton forms the basis of the marine food webs and is an important food source for many fish, birds and marine mammals. At the same time, many people are worried about microplastics in seafood, in particular whether it is a problem for their health," External link
