You may even know that because of their exceptionally keen sense of smell, dogs like beagles are also used to detect drugs and bombs, or land mines. But a dog would not be effective in finding a sea mine. Sea mines are sophisticated, expensive weapons that are designed to work in the ocean where they can sink ships, destroy landing craft, and kill or injure personnel. Sea mines are made so that they cannot be set off easily by wave action or marine animals growing on or bumping into them. If undetected, sea mines can be deadly, destructive weapons. But just as the dog's keen sense of smell makes it ideal for detecting land mines, the U.S. Oceamm : Accueil. Aquarium Nausicaa : Centre National de la Mer à Boulogne-sur-Mer. Bob Ianson.

Marine mammals are susceptible to all of the major groups of parasites, including various nematodes, trematodes, cestodes, mites, lice, and acanthocephalans.

Clinical experience with many of these is limited, while others are commonly seen in recently captured specimens. Acanthocephalans Cetaceans are the primary host of Bolbosoma spp but can be infested with parasites of the genus Corynosoma, which have pinnipeds and sea otters as primary hosts. Bolbosoma spp have been reported in pinnipeds. C enhydra has only been reported from sea otters. Acariasis Nasal and lung mites are found in phocid and otarid seals. Demodectic mange has been diagnosed in California sea lions. Heavy infestations of sucking lice are common in wild pinnipeds and can cause severe anemia.

Sea Lion Pups Starving Along California Coast

Every winter since January 2013, throngs of sickly young sea lions have stranded themselves on beaches and in seaside backyards and parking lots in California coastal communities, often weighing less than half of their ideal body weight. “They’re extremely emaciated, basically starving to death,” says veterinarian Shawn Johnson of the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito. Over 2,000 emaciated, dehydrated and diseased sea lion pups have washed up on California’s shores from San Diego to San Francisco since the beginning of 2015. For the two-month period of January and February this year, California sea lion strandings were almost 20 times the average stranding rate. As an “indicator species,” the California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) is known to be especially sensitive to changes in offshore ocean health.

5 requins tués... par une seule otarie

Une otarie à fourrure (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) a attaqué un groupe de requins bleus (prionace glauca) au large de Cap Town, en Afrique du Sud, pour se repaître de la chair des squales. Selon l'ichtyologue Chris Fallows et deux chercheurs de l'université de Miami, ce comportement est inédit. L'étude publiée le 16 mars 2015 dans la revue African Journal of Marine Science, démontre que cette attaque a de nombreuses implications sur le fonctionnement de la chaîne alimentaire. Une otarie au comportement inédit Chris Fallows, spécialiste du grand requin blanc, avait emmené un groupe de touristes en haute mer en 2012 afin de les faire plonger au milieu des squales.

More Than 6,000 Endangered Manatees Counted In Annual Florida Survey

(AP) — A record number of manatees have been tallied in Florida's annual survey of the endangered marine mammals, state wildlife officials said Monday. The total of 6,063 manatees tops the previous record set in 2010 by about 1,000, but that doesn't mean the state's manatee population has grown by that much, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The state conducts the aerial surveys each year, depending on the weather. Researchers have no way to estimate the number of manatees that aren't visible during the surveys, so the tally is considered a minimum count of Florida's manatee population. "The high count this year shows that our long-term conservation efforts are working," said Richard Corbett, the commission's chairman.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A plateau on the Arctic Ocean floor, where thousands of Pacific walrus gather to feed and raise pups, has received new protections from the Obama administration that recognize it as a biological hot spot and mark it off-limits to future oil drilling.

Chukchi Sea's Hanna Shoal Area Declared Off-Limits To Oil Drilling

But the announcement from Interior Secretary Sally Jewell triggered an uproar from Alaska leaders, angry that the federal government was making a decision that they said would harm the state's economy. "This administration has effectively declared war on Alaska," U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said. Hanna Shoal rises from the shallow Chukchi Sea and teems with plankton, clams and marine worms that attract walrus and bearded seals.

Federal estimates, however, show that the Chukchi and Beaufort seas could hold 26 billion barrels of recoverable oil, and many Alaska leaders are eager to begin drilling in the area to create jobs and fund state government projects and services. "The physics are driving the biology," said Dr.
