A dead dolphin found on the shores of Gambia’s Gungur beach has reignited talk of deadly pollution blamed on a Chinese fish processing company.

Marine protected areas (MPAs) may be effective in saving coral reefs from the damaging effects of global climate change, according to a study which contradicts the notion that such efforts are futi

New research from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and collaborators found that most marine life in marine protected areas will not be able to tolerate warming ocean temperatures

About eight million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans each year and the global quantity will nearly double to 250 million tonnes by 2025, says a new analysis paper.

Activists hailed a Kenyan court for ordering that almost 5,000 fishermen at a 14th century World Heritage Site receive millions in compensation for the loss of traditional fishing rights due to the

KOCHI: The oceans will house more plastics than fish by 2050. Recent studies have shown that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean.

Explaining the ~5-million-year delay in marine biotic recovery following the latest Permian mass extinction, the largest biotic crisis of the Phanerozoic, is a fundamental challenge for both geological and biological sciences. Ocean redox perturbations may have played a critical role in this delayed recovery. However, the lack of quantitative constraints on the details of Early Triassic oceanic anoxia (for example, time, duration, and extent) leaves the links between oceanic conditions and the delayed biotic recovery ambiguous.

VASCO: Even after two years, MV Qing vessel, which is currently grounded at the WISL yard, continues to pose a serious threat to the marine environment due to high possibility of oil spill during t
