Who wants a nice thread on environmental pressures from the global food system? You know you do @GlobalFoodLeeds @SRILeeds 1/ Image
An awesome team led by @BSHalpern & @ucsb_nceas calculated and, for the first time, produced a spatial map of where pressures from the food system are produced. Paper at:…, email me if you want a PDF 2/ Image
We found that these pressures (disturbance, nutrient pollution, water use, and GHG emissions) are wildly uneven in their distribution. Over 90% of pressures come from just 10% of the world; with 40% of pressures from the just 1% 3/ Image

As business from around the world meet at the @OceanCouncil Sustainable Ocean Summit 🌊 to discuss the #ocean, #climate and #biodiversity, #PLOSBiology is proud to announce our new collection of articles on #OceanSolutions for a sustainable, healthy and inclusive future 🧵1/11
Collection guest editors Nancy Knowlton @SeaCitizens and Emanuele Di Lorenzo @manu_ocean outline their vision for the collection in their Editorial #OceanSolutions 🧵2/11
In their Perspective, @jenniferjacquet and Daniel Pauly argue that the current definition of ‘#sustainable fisheries’ should be reimagined to minimize exploitation and prioritize small-scale artisanal and subsistence fishing #OceanSolutions 🧵3/11

This week, people have been discussing if eating #oysters conflicts with following a plant-based diet.

Today, we’re taking a look at the definition of sentience and #veganism—and at animal species that have been proven to be more sentient than humans used to think. 👇1/14 Image
Although there is legal and scientific disagreement about #sentience, there are some standards that are broadly accepted.

According to @SentienceInst, sentience is simply the ability to have positive and negative experiences, including pain. 2/14
The concept of animal #sentience is important for ethical reasons.

If #animals are sentient beings capable of feeling pain, most humans would agree that it is morally wrong to cause unnecessary pain or suffering to them. 3/14…

Hello everyone. I'm José Fariñas @DrJoseMFarinas, honoured to take over from @c_guilfoyle1 as the new curator of the account. Colin & @IrishRainforest showed us their inspiring work with upland habitats in Ireland. If you allow me I'll shift the focus to the marine realm. Image
Just a bit about me first. I'm a Lecturer in applied freshwater and marine biology at the Atlantic Technological University in Galway City @ATU_GalwayCity and my many interests as a researcher @MfrcATU focus on the functioning, biodiversity and resilience of biogenic habitats... ImageImage
which are those marine habitats structured by living organisms, which could be many, from tube building 'worms' (Sabellaria, Serpula -left pic by @SeaSearchIre-) to bivalves (mussels, oysters, flame shells), seagrass and seaweed (kelp, Ascophyllum and other brown algae). Image of a Serpula vermicul...Image

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

Short #Jingmenvirus primer - medium thread.

Jingmenvirus is a recently identified group of segmented RNA viruses that are phylogenetically linked to unsegmented flaviviruses. They appear to infect a wide range of animal hosts, including humans. Image
Jingmenviruses (JMVs) contain two #flavivirus-related segments, as well as additional segments of unknown origin. It is thought that JMVs evolved from unsegmented flaviviruses.…
The evolutionary significance of this shift to a segmented genome is unclear, but comparative studies of JMVs and flaviviruses may illuminating.

Our new @BlueFoodFutures paper is now out in @nature. We compare the environmental performance of #bluefoods to prioritize sustainable blue food production and consumption 🧵(1/10)
@AmericanU @AUResearch @sthlmresilience @oceansolutions @eatforum @DalhousieU A market counter with a range of prepared fish and shellfish
Did you know food systems emit 1/3 of all greenhouse gases, occupy 1/2 of ice-free land & are responsible for 3/4 of freshwater use and eutrophication?

Yet, many studies aiming to reduce these pressures largely overlooked blue foods, so we dove into them here (2/10)
We used data from studies covering >2,500 #fisheries & #aquaculture farms to estimate the #greenhousegas, nitrogen & phosphorus emissions, and freshwater & land use to produce standardized estimates for 23 species groups, representing >70% of blue food production 🐟🦐🦪 (3/10)

What I have to say is very important and I ask you to read this all the way through.

About half of our district is the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. This is where our aquaculture is and it is very strong.


This area makes its living from the hard labor of our Watermen. They need our support now more than ever. Our Watermen catch and raise marine life from rockfish to oysters. They are small businesses that keep the region going.


They keep many more small businesses thriving. Restaurants, local grocery stores, roadside stands and more sell the fresh catches they bring to us.

Many countries have low concern of either #conservation #MPA or #aquaculture - only high income countries care about both @SarahELester #osm20 #osm2020 Image
