Great Barrier Reef Obituary Goes Viral, To The Horror Of Scientists. Agencies say 22% of Barrier Reef coral is dead, correcting 'misinterpretation' Almost a quarter of the coral on the Great Barrier Reef is now dead, according to two government agencies, with the previously pristine remote northern sections worst affected.

Agencies say 22% of Barrier Reef coral is dead, correcting 'misinterpretation'

The data from in-water surveys, released on Friday afternoon, was from the two agencies that were part of the national coral bleaching taskforce. Earlier this week their non-government partner – the Australian Research Council centre of excellence for coral reef studies – released broadly similar data. Guardian Australia understands the three data sets were planned for release together, but the two government agencies pulled out at the last minute, unhappy with the emphasis of the associated release. The media release distributed with the government agency data focused on dispelling perceived exaggerations of the damage, and on the ability of coral to recover, rather than on the size of the environmental disaster. Reichelt said 22% of the coral along the length of the reef appeared to be dead. Seattle’s Young Salmon Are Laced With Our Antidepressants. Do fish need antidepressants?

Seattle’s Young Salmon Are Laced With Our Antidepressants

No, but they’re getting them anyway, thanks to the tons of drugs and personal care products that make their way from our well-stocked medicine chests into the nation’s sewage systems and through ineffectual wastewater treatment plants. In a new study published in the journal Environmental Pollution, researchers caught and analyzed juvenile chinook salmon and a small fish called the staghorn sculpin in three Puget Sound estuaries, two of which had wastewater treatment plants nearby. What they found was a staggering pharmacopeia of contaminants, both in the water and in the fish.

Of the hundreds of chemicals likely present in the Puget Sound ecosystem, only a small percentage are monitored or regulated, the study authors found, and there is little or no environmental toxicity information for the vast majority of these compounds.

A farsa do Salmão! Como nos enganam! Todos devem ver isto! O salmão que encontramos nas prateleiras do supermercado não é tão benéfico assim.

A farsa do Salmão! A farsa do Salmão!

A farsa do Salmão!

Somos enganados! Todos devem ver isto! O salmão considerado um dos peixes mais benéficos à saúde, sendo aclamado por aí por nutricionistas e médicos que simplesmente parecem ignorar ou desconhecer sua verdadeira origem. Entre os argumentos para o seu consumo, declaram que o salmão carrega uma grande quantidade de ômega 3, vitaminas A, D, E e do complexo B, magnésio e ferro. OK. Seria bom, se não fosse por um enorme porém: o salmão encontramos nas prateleiras do supermercado não é tão benéfico assim. Salmão criado em cativeiro deveria ser cinza, mas são tingidos de rosa para atrair e agradar consumidores. Isso ocorre pelo mesmo motivo pelo qual os flamingos também são: suas dietas, que consistem em krill e camarão.

Wild Salmon May Not Be As 'Wild' As You Think. Do you always pay a little extra for that wild-caught salmon?

Wild Salmon May Not Be As 'Wild' As You Think

Well, according to a new study, it may not be as “wild” as you think, especially, if you consume it in the off-season. A new study by Oceana, an international conservancy group, revealed that 43% of wild-caught salmon was mislabeled. They collected 82 salmon samples from restaurants and grocery stores and confirmed the results through DNA testing. Nearly 69% of the samples turned out to be farmed Atlantic salmon being sold as wild-caught. “Americans might love salmon, but as our study reveals, they may be falling victim to a bait and switch,” said Beth Lowell, Senior Campaign Director at Oceana. “When consumers opt for wild-caught U.S. salmon, they don’t expect to get a farmed or lower-value product of questionable origins. Dr. “U.S. fishermen catch enough salmon to satisfy 80% of our domestic demand, 70% of that catch is then exported instead of going directly to American grocery stores and restaurants," she adds.

Why You Should Never Eat Tilapia. Tilapia has become the ubiquitous fish in America today.

Why You Should Never Eat Tilapia

It’s cheap, not “fishy” tasting, boneless and skinless, and is hard to mess up by overcooking, which is a problem with many other fish varieties. However, the tilapia we’re eating is almost entirely a farmed fish, meaning you cannot find wild tilapia in any grocery store or on any restaurant menu. And the farming is usually done on an industrial scale, with thousands of fish being harvested every day. Their feed is not natural — in the wild, tilapia would eat algae and lake plants, but the farms fatten up the fish on GMO corn and soy pellets. The amount of healthful fish oils in these creatures is almost non-existent, negating the main reason why fish is so good for us. 1. Recent Studies have found that farm-raised Tilapia may cause more inflammation – Farm-raised tilapia has always been a popular source for fish, not only because it is widely available in the US, but it is also very inexpensive. 2. 3. 4. 5.
