June 8 marks #WorldOceanDay.

We honor this day by highlighting the need to protect marine life from human #fishing activities—a step that has the potential to both tackle biodiversity loss and the ongoing climate crisis. @WorldOceansDay👇 1/10
Ocean ecosystems are vital since oceans:

🗺️ make up 70% of Earth’s surface
🫁 produce 80% of the oxygen we breathe
🐠 house 80% of all life on Earth

At the same time:
🎣98.5% of the #ocean is open to fishing fleets

Human activity is the number one threat to #ocean health.

An initiative led by @aquaticlifeins urges consumers to protect oceans by choosing #PlantBased seafood alternatives and improving the legal protection of marine animals, @matthewzampa reports. 3/10

Did you know that this week marks #EndangeredSpeciesDay and #BiodiversityDay?

We honor these days by highlighting the need to change our eating habits and fashion choices to protect animals from going extinct.👇1/10
Animals play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy #environment. For example:

- beaver dams prevent fires
- squirrels help trees take root
- #fish feces can lock carbon away for 600 years
- elephants create water sources for other species

Our current food system is a key driver of #BiodiversityLoss, a 2021 report by @ChathamHouse found.

The expansion of #AnimalAgriculture, in particular, destroys ecosystems by turning them into pasture or farmland to grow feed. @CaroChristen reports. 3/10

毎年少なくとも5000万匹の #サメ が商業漁業で混獲として殺されています。 過去数十年でサメの90%が失われました。 シーフードを食べることは、サメや他の #sealife の殺害の一因となります。

#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

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.

🚨New in @PNASNews! We demonstrate that aquatic #biodiversity directly benefits humanity via nutritional benefits of #seafood.
I’m thrilled to share this: it's a BIG one for me, it’s the product of > 7 years (!) of developing ideas & collecting data.

@mioconnor and I bridge the gap between #biodiversity science and human nutrition science & demonstrate mechanistic links between aquatic #biodiversity and human nutritional well-being in the context of #AquaticFoods. Photo of seafood at at market in Papua New Guinea,  courtesy
We answer one of the most pressing questions in ecology:

Does biodiversity per se (species richness and ecological functional diversity), distinct from the identities and abundance of species enhance human well-being?

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

#originsofSARSCoV2 Image
After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

There has been much action lately around #seafood #traceability, and last weekend I was eating #BlueHarborFishCo Albacore #Tuna - and noticed the claim on the can that they could track all the way back to the boat, and had a @MSCecolabel on the can. #fishery 1/n Image
I was interested if a company could really go all the way back to the boat, so I looked on the blueharborfishco.com web site for fishing boat information. Here it discussed @MSCecolabel and that the trace back is "to a certified sustainable source and #fishing practice" 2/n Image
I was getting suspicious - #seafood #traceability back to the boat? I thought I would check the @MSCecolabel web site for information about this #Tuna #fishery - only 1 MSC web page has the MSC-C-54143 code, and that is a 279 page report that mentions this code 1 time 3/n Image

Canned #seafood #mercury concentration results from class experiment are in & were as expected. Hg in ppm, wet weight w (SD), n=3 cans for each:
Clams: 0.01 (0.001)
Salmon: 0.013 (0.001)
Chunk light tuna: 0.059 (0.017)
Albacore tuna: 0.28 (0.041)

So what does this mean?
We found what was expected based on recommended lists
Albacore levels similar to published studies, all of which typically show this fish w higher and much more variable Hg than FDA risk assessment and publication. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/15364…
