1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

Hi everyone, I’m Dr. Boisvert! Today I want to talk to you about the parts of the #ocean that freeze over, like this sea ice just outside of Thule, Greenland in the Arctic taken during an Operation #IceBridge campaign in 2016. 🧊🧊🧊🧊#WorldOceansDay
The seas in the mid-Atlantic and the Arctic are very different, but they’re part of the same global ocean! Here’s me ‘floating’ on sea ice off the coast of Greenland in 2016 and me again floating on Ocean City Beach in Maryland last weekend. 🧊🧊🧊🌊🌊🌊#WorldOceansDay
In the Arctic the ocean is cold enough (-1.8ºC🥶) to freeze saltwater and create sea ice. But here in the mid-Atlantic, the ocean is much warmer thanks to a massive current known as the Gulf Stream, which transports heat from the tropics.🌴🌎🌴 #WorldOceansDay

#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc
#Watch #Seaspiracy. It’s #seas #piracy. It’s #conspirasea
Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy
Watch #Seaspiracy

Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

In the #LongFoodMovement report, we're reminded that the world’s 30 million artisanal #fishers and workers provide nearly half of the #fish we eat (@IPBES, 2019).

But with #climatechange & island/ocean grabbing, small-scale fishers & their communities are in peril.

🧵Thread 👇🏾
Island/#ocean grabbing is likely to intensify as countries seek to solidify their influence, their #food supply chains, & their global sourcing and distribution networks. For example, in the #RedSea region, conflicts over fish & other marine resources threaten rich #biodiversity.
Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, said to
have some of the highest marine #biodiversity on earth, #China has been building airstrips, ports & other facilities on disputed islands & reefs, w/ the apparent aim of establishing military bases (cf. Ives,

🇫🇷[FR] Qu’est ce que @oceanprotocol $OCEAN ?

OCEAN Protocol c’est la création d’une place de marché de la #Data mondiale ; un marché énorme, évaluée à 229.4 milliards de dollars pour 2024 avec une croissance de 10.6% par an selon @marketsmarkets.

$OCEAN est un utility token, c’est à dire qu’il permet à son possesseur d’accéder à des produits/services.

Le but d’OCEAN Protocol, est de faciliter l’accès aux données (pour les chercheurs, entreprises, startups d’IA...), ainsi que leur vente en permettant leur partage de manière privée, facilité, sans compromettre l’exclusivité des entreprises sur celles ci...

#LeSaviezVous ?
En analysant les fibres textiles présentes dans l'#océan on constate que :
✅8.2% sont #synthétiques
✅79.5% sont d'origine cellulosique (ex: #coton)
✅12.3% sont d'origine animale

Etonnante #pollution non ?
Tuons une idée reçue : une fibre dite naturelle ne se dégradera pas facilement dans la nature et encore moins dans l'océan, parce qu'elle est généralement traitée pour durer. Et comme je le répète souvent : la nature n'est pas un composteur géant
Donc oui à une captation des microfibres à la source, mais attention à ne pas favoriser la pollution en choisissant un textile pour ce qu'il parait et non pour ce qu'il est...

"Harvesting the oceans under the Blue Economy": "The #OECD suggests that the #ocean economy is likely to outpace the global economy in the next 15 years."

#GreatReset #NewDealForNature #DeepSeaMining
Under guise of protecting #biodiversity:

"Framed as perhaps the last untapped, under-explored & under-exploited region in the world, the Pacific #Ocean is set to be a contested space for resources."

#WorldEconomicForum #SDGs
"The #BlueEconomy heralds a new race to carve up the Pacific, turning the Pacific Ocean, from surface to seafloor, into a crowded/contested space. Pacific state leaders are courted w/ economic gains that are a fraction of the value of the ocean resources that will be #extracted."
