Trophic gauntlet effects on fisheries recovery: a case study in Sansha Bay, China

ABSTRACT Low biological productivity causes ecosystem energy deficiency. Sansha Bay is an important spawning and nursery ground for migratory fish in the East China Sea (ECS). There is significant

Seaweed farms provide refugia from ocean acidification.

Seaweed: A Powerful Tool for Climate Change Mitigation That Provides Various Ecological Services

Seaweed production (both culture and natural) has increased compared with in the past. It occupies a strong position in the food supply and meets global food demand. Seaweed emerges as a powerful

Kelp (Saccharina latissima) Mitigates Coastal Ocean Acidification and Increases the Growth of North Atlantic Bivalves in Lab Experiments and on an Oyster Farm

Results suggest that photosynthesis by S. latissima grown at densities associated with aquaculture increased pH and decreased pCO2, fostering a carbonate chemistry regime that maximized the growth of juvenile bivalves.

Variability in the Net Ecosystem Productivity (NEP) of Seaweed Farms

The important role of vegetated ecosystems in the sequestration of carbon has gained strong interest across a wide variety of disciplines. With evidence growing of the potential for macroalgae

Effects of outplanting time on growth, shedding and quality of Saccharina latissima (Phaeophyceae) in its northern distribution range

To reach the goal of large-scale seaweed cultivation in Norway and the rest of Europe, new knowledge about the commercially important kelp species Saccharina latissima is needed. Efforts to maximise

Effects of Fermented Seaweed Fertilizer Treatment on Paddy Amino Acid Content and Rhizosphere Microbiome Community

Seaweed has often been reported on for it potential bioresources for fertilizers to improve crop productivity and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers (CF). However, little is known about the

Carbon Dioxide Removal via Macroalgae Open-ocean Mariculture and Sinking: An Earth System Modeling Study

Abstract. In this study we investigate open-ocean macroalgae mariculture and sinking (MOS) as ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) method. Embedding a macroalgae model into an Earth system model,

Dual benefit of ocean acidification for the laminarialean kelp Saccharina latissima: enhanced growth and reduced herbivory

The laminarialean kelp Saccharina latissima is a common macroalga along rocky shorelines that is also frequently used in aquaculture. This study examined how ocean acidification may alter the growth



Phytoplankton community distribution in relation to environmental parameters in three aquaculture systems in a Chinese subtropical eutrophic bay

Canonical correspondence analysis showed that phytoplankton distribution was mainly influenced by temperature, nutrition, salinity and suspended solids, which provided guidelines for future policy-making in aquaculture as well as eutrophication control and management.

Mitigating the Expansion of Harmful Algal Blooms Across the Freshwater-to-Marine Continuum.

This article highlights where paired physical, chemical, or biological controls may improve beneficial uses in the short term, and offers management strategies that should be enacted across watershed scales to combat the global expansion of HABs across geographically broad freshwater-to-marine continua.

Harmful algal blooms and eutrophication: Nutrient sources, composition, and consequences

Although algal blooms, including those considered toxic or harmful, can be natural phenomena, the nature of the global problem of harmful algal blooms (HABs) has expanded both in extent and its

Eutrophication assessment and bioremediation strategy in a marine fish cage culture area in Nansha Bay, China

On the basis of field data measured during four cruises from January to November 2007, variations in the characteristics of dissolved inorganic nitrogen and phosphate were analyzed in Nansha marine

Role of Shellfish Aquaculture in the Reduction of Eutrophication in an Urban Estuary.

Oyster "bioextraction" of nutrients and how oyster aquaculture might complement existing management measures in urban estuaries was examined in Long Island Sound, Connecticut, finding that this up-scaled local-scale method could be useful in bodies of water without circulation models.
