Marine reserves are a promising tool for fisheries management and conservation of biodiversity, but they are not a panacea for fisheries management problems. For fisheries that target highly mobile single species with little or no by-catch or habitat impact, marine reserves provide few benefits compared to conventional fishery management tools. For… (More)
Predicting global fisheries is a high-order challenge but predictions have been made and updates are needed. Past forecasts, present trends and perspectives of key parameters of the fisheries--including potential harvest, state of stocks, supply and demand, trade, fishing technology and governance--are reviewed in detail, as the basis for new forecasts and… (More)
The Census of Marine Life aids practical work of the Convention on Biological Diversity, discovers and tracks ocean biodiversity, and supports marine environmental planning.
World population is expected to grow from the present 6.8 billion people to about 9 billion by 2050. The growing need for nutritious and healthy food will increase the demand for fisheries products from marine sources, whose productivity is already highly stressed by excessive fishing pressure, growing organic pollution, toxic contamination, coastal… (More)
The aim of this paper is to quantify the impact of the forest on raw water quality within the framework of other land uses. On the basis of measurements of quality parameters that were identified as being the most problematic (i.e., pesticides and nitrates), we modeled how water quality is influenced by land uses. In order to assess the benefits provided by… (More)

OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of neutralizing a 2.5% NaOCl solution on its cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, and tissue-dissolving potential. STUDY DESIGN The cytotoxicity and the genotoxicity of Dakin, a 2.5% NaOCl solution, and a neutralized 2.5% NaOCl solution were assessed according to ISO 10993 standards. The weight… (More)
From the start, ocean use and resource exploitation by humans proceeded with limited knowledge of marine life and habitats. Even in the last century, biological knowledge of the oceans remained more limited than that of physical ocean processes such as storms, tsunamis from undersea earthquakes and teleconnections, like El Niñ o. Yet, human exploitation of… (More)
Two recent papers point to differing trends in the status of fish stocks in the Mediterranean and Atlantic fisheries of Europe. We discuss the possible reasons for these contrasting trends in relation to the history, ecosystems, fisheries and management in the two regions.
There is a daily need to be in tune with the health of our bodies and understand what our bodies are telling us. Taking a doctor's advice without any question is being complacent. The greatest strength is within ourselves. Millions of people use holistic medicine, which treats the whole person, including mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. An… (More)
