Eating Fish Kills... Saving our Oceans.
By, Uwe Paschen.
The Way to save the Oceans, our Coral reefs and reduce the CO2. As well as increase the Oxygen production and stabilise the PH balance of the Oceans is simple and yet politically impossible to implement as long as Human are not controlled and striped of their freedom to act as they please, disregarding life and the environment.
The latest results and compilations of recent and long term studies reveal that we could save the Coral reef and stop the acidification of our Oceans as well as increase the CO2 absorption and reduce the Methane production by simply stopping to consume Fish and other sea foods. Meaning a total moratorium on the exploitation of all commercial Fisheries, as well as a stop to the dumping of pollutants into our water wais and Oceans.
The Study published on January the 16th, 2009, the study was conducted jointly by the University of Exeter. (UK), University of Miami (USA), University of Ottawa (Canada), University of British Columbia (Canada), Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (UK) and University of East Anglia (UK).
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) supported Dr Rod Wilson’s research.
In addition, published on 19 January 2009 by Science Daily.
Chemical research has shown that our assumption of the Carbon cycle of the Oceans where wrong. We assumed that the main producer of Calcium Carbonate where Plankton and yet could not explain until now how the Calcium Carbonate could be found in shallower waters. Since the Plankton does sink to the seabed and often is looked into sediments for millions of years.
Fish and not Plankton as previously believed and this due the fact that Fish continually swallow water and excrete it as well produce the Waste amount of Calcium Carbonate. This in form of soluble Calcium Carbonate making it readily available to Coral Reefs and to balance and Neutralize the Acid produced by the CO2 cycle.
All Fish do this other then Sharks and Mata ray. Now, Fish will and are increasing their production of Calcium Carbonates due to higher oceanic temperatures, this rise in temperature does also increase CO2 production. However the over all Fish stock is being stressed and reduced in numbers, even threaten due to over fishing and Pollution of the Oceans with Toxins, Chemicals and Hormones that do affect the fish stocks over all.
There are today about 812 to 2050 Million tons of Fish left in the Oceans compared to 7,000 to 15,000 million tons estimated only two century ago.
The remaining Fish stock produces 110 million Ton of Calcium carbonate Annually. Would we repopulate the Ocean with Fish to levels as two centuries ago. We would then increase the production of Calcium Carbonates by a factor of 10 to 14. Giving us an additional 1000 to 1400 million Ton of Calcium Carbonates. This additional Calcium Carbonate would raise the PH level of the Ocean, save the Coral Reefs and increase the CO2 absorption rate as well as help cool down the over all Oceanic Temperature and increase as well as accelerate the filtration of toxins and other polluted.
The only way to save the Oceans seems to be with a moratorium on all commercial fishing for at least 3 years. And this would have to be followed by a reduced number of fishing vessels no more then we used to have in the 18th century. The Fishing vessels seize will have to be limited as well, to what they used to be in 18th.
The main question though is how can we possibly implement all this with out suspending Democracy it self as well as the Capitalistic profit system. Since consumer and Citizen lack the maturity and solidarity to act and live responsible and with in natures as well as in the interest of future generations.
