DORSAL DE NASCA: PERU PLEDGES TO CREATE A HUGE NEW MARINE RESERVE... their positive quota for marine conservation



  • In October, Peru’s environment minister pledged to make a proposed 50,000-square-kilometer (19,300-square-mile) marine protected area a reality by 2021.
  • The proposed protected area, called the Dorsal de Nasca National Reserve, comprises part of a range of 93 submarine mountains that harbor more than 1,100 species, many of them endemic.
  • If it is approved, it will bring the proportion of the country’s territorial waters that are protected from just 0.48% to 6.5%.
  • While supporting the new proposed reserve, marine experts continue to push for the establishment of the Grau Tropical Marine Reserve in the country’s north, over pushback from the oil and gas industry.
  • Under the sea, jutting into the Pacific from the southern Peruvian department of Ica, rises a mountain range called Dorsal de Nasca. The 93 submarine 
    mountains harbor more than 1,100 species, many of them endemic, and a section of the range has become the latest marine protected area proposed by the Peruvian government.
    The country’s minister of the environment, Fabiola MuΓ±oz, made a firm promise to designate more than 50,000 square kilometers (19,300 square miles) of this underwater mountain range as a protected natural area during the III Congress of Protected Natural Areas of Latin America and the 
    Caribbean, held in Lima in mid-October 2019. The protected area, called Dorsal de Nasca National Reserve, would be located 140 km (76 nautical miles) off the Peruvian coast.
    According to the proposed marine reserve’s constitutional documents, Dorsal de Nasca would allow Peru to jump from protecting just 0.48% of its territorial waters to 6.5%, carrying the country closer to its commitment to bring at least 10% of its ocean under some form of protection.
    Protection would prevent the government from granting any marine concessions within the area. Trawling by large fishing vessels, which can damage underwater habitat, is already prohibited, but fishing by other methods would continue.

An underwater mountain range

Dorsal de Nasca will be the largest protected area and the first underwater mountain range to be protected in Peru, according to Alicia Kuroiwa, director of habitats and endangered species for the international marine conservation NGO Oceana in Peru. Kuroiwa was part of the team that prepared the reserve’s constitutional documents.
She drew a parallel between the Dorsal de Nasca and the Andes mountain ranges, saying that both act as highways for the movement of species. There is a sea lion that only lives on Easter Island, it never reaches the coast of Chile, but does reach Punta Marcona in Peru, because the mountain range helps to guide it to our coasts,” Kuroiwa told Mongabay Latam.
Southern species such as southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) and emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) have also appeared in Punta Marcona, located about 480 km (300 mi) northwest of the Chilean border. “These animals travel from south to north and when they find the mountain range they follow this path,” Kuroiwa said.
The Dorsal de Nasca ridge butts into another ridge, called Dorsal de Salas y GΓ³mez. Together the two chains of volcanic underwater mountains extend for 2,900 km (1,570 nmi) off the coasts of Peru and Chile. Formed over approximately 30 million years, the mountains reach a depth of 4,000 meters (more than 13,000 feet).
Yuri Hooker, a biologist at the Marine Biology Laboratory of Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, said studies are still needed to really understand this marine area delineated by the mountains. “Potentially the area may have high biodiversity, but the truth is that not much is known about this place,” Hooker said.

CAN WE EVER SAVE OUR MARINE BIODIVERSITY FROM NATURAL PREDATORS?



READ THIS! 

Marine natural predators are organisms that kill, decrease the reproductive potential of or otherwise reduce the numbers of marine creatures. These organisms feed on the marine lives for survival and their existence is a threat to their preys. 
It is quite unfortunate that some of these predators live in the  seas as well with their preys while others are not. But what ever the case maybe, humans should not complicate the issue either. 


MARINE NATURAL PREDATORS 









#our fishes are hunted by reptiles, beasts and birds of diverse nature for food... 

CONSIDER THESE
  • can we ever rescue the marine preys from their predators? 
  • Can any measure be adopted to create a  feeding balance against predatorship? 

Come to think of these...the answer is NO!  
It is unlikely to believe that any solution can be suggested towards this. The presence of the natural predators results to the concept of  food chain which cannot be altered.  Denying the natural predators their feeding organisms will lead to starvation and loss of life.

SO WHAT'S THE WAY FORWARD?

the way forward is simple! Humans should not contribute to the problem at hand.  Natural predators may not be controlled but human activities against Marine life security can be totally controlled and curtailed. 

We can't control the predators and we must not contribute to the issue either. Let's give the marine remnants the chance to live and reproduce more for our sustained Sea food consumption. 


#Stand up today and say No to marine biodiversity exploitation and destruction...


#Our fishes deserve to live... and we have a part to play to fulfill that.

SPECIAL ISSUE INFORMATION ON MARINE BIODIVERSITY






Special Issue Information on marine biodiversity (Strain your eyes to catch the fun if you care)


Dear Colleagues,
Life on Earth depends on water, and water is the foundation for the origin of life. Seventy percent of our planet’s surface is covered with water; over 95% of Earth’s water is in the ocean. Freshwater is intrinsically limited in availability and is a globally important, indispensable resource for the persistence of all life forms. The ecological importance of oceans is immense, which includes, but is not limited to, carbon sequestration, climate moderation, nutrient cycling, and provision of habitats millions of life forms. Although coastal biodiversity is well-explored, deep-ocean biodiversity is heavily understudied. The values of aquatic resources to the society and environment have been well-recognized; aquatic ecosystems have received an increasing attention in terms of research, management, education and awareness across the globe. However, aquatic habitats and aquatic biota around the world have been critically imperiled, mostly due to anthropogenic forces, such as overexploitation, environmental pollution, urbanization, and industrialization. The demand on freshwater and for other aquatic resources for human consumption is dramatically increasing along with the growing global human population. The challenges to stem the losses in global freshwater, brackish, and marine biodiversity remain extensive and the resolution of this crisis is an imminent need in the face of global environmental change.
Persistence of aquatic biodiversity in the face of environmental changes (climate change, pollution, unsustainable land-uses, such as intensive agriculture and urbanization, overexploitation, biological invasions, diseases and parasitic infections and a myriad of other factors) is a critical issue confronted by many governments, resource managers, researchers, and conservation authorizes worldwide. Rapid degradation of freshwater habitats accentuates the gravity of global water crisis. In addition, the richness of aquatic biological diversity may be largely unknown to science in less-explored biomes, particularly in the tropical realm. Therefore, it is crucial to explore the global freshwater diversity in-depth to broaden our understanding of the biosphere. It is the prime responsibility of researchers and conservation biologists to device action plans to effectively and efficiently manage and conserve global aquatic biodiversity; to develop the science-based knowledge on freshwater biodiversity; and promote wise use of aquatic resources to achieve sustainable development for the mankind.
Suitable topics:
The scholarly articles that focus on different aspects of global aquatic biodiversity will be considered for this special issue. Following are some suitable topics we are looking for. Other ideas, if deemed suitable, will be considered by the editorial committee. 
  • Conservation and management of global aquatic ecosystems (freshwater, marine, coastal, brackish, and intertidal), habitats and species
  • Imperiled (locally, regionally, nationally, or globally) aquatic freshwater habitats and species
  • National and transboundary action plans targeting and/or emphasis on conservation of marine, coastal and freshwater biodiversity
  • Threats to aquatic biodiversity: pollution, overuse, invasions, diseases, etc.
  • Ecology, evolution, behavior, natural and life histories of aquatic and semiaquatic species
  • Experimental aquatic ecology
  • Cutting-edge technology on aquatic biodiversity: GIS, remote sensing, radiotelemetry and animal tracking
  • Distribution studies and diversity inventories from less-explored habitats and regions, including species descriptions: tropics, polar ecology, winter ecology
  • Sustainable management of fisheries and other aquatic biota
  • Theoretical studies in ecology and conservation of aquatic systems
  • Restoration of aquatic habitats: theory and practice
  • Environmental law and policies with an aquatic perspective
  • Perspectives and efforts on public awareness and formal education on aquatic biodiversity
  • Global climate change and aquatic resources
  • Functions and processes of aquatic ecosystems and land-water connections
  • Impacts of aquatic biodiversity on human well-being
  • Formal Education on aquatic biodiversity conservation and aquatic resources (ms on pedagogy)
  • Public outreach on aquatic biodiversity conservation and aquatic resources

CLIMATE CHANGE: A Threat To Island States

Can we talk about the future of our island states and nations in the face of this ongoing climate change?


Climate change is indeed posing a big challenge to small island regions around the world, in Africa and in Nigeria. meanwhile, there are two main reasons for this challenge;
  • the demise of warm water corals and coral reefs
  • the sea level rise.
Surprisingly, do you know that even ambitious climate change targets are not enough to save coral reefs? 
Even with ambitious climate mitigation, we cannot prevent global warming (the main cause of climate change) to remain much below + 1.5 degree Celsius. At this global mean surface temperature, 70% - 90% of all warm water coral reef  are going to disappear, and even more at +2 degree Celsius. 

In many of this small island developing states, they depend on those systems for protein supply, for fisheries, small scale fisheries - and these resources will go away, because with the dying reefs,  the marine biodiversity will disappear.   

Biggest threats of the century

  • It is very obvious that as a result of climate change, small island developing states will disappear from the surface of the planet thereby leading to the extinction of the species that exist in it and as well an unexpected migration by the human dwellers.
  • Most Importantly, climate change is threatening our sea food and as a result of this, marine lives are likely going to disappear thereby leading to a colossal loss of a primary source of protein.


BUT CAN THIS SITUATION BE SALVAGED?
YES! AND YOU HAVE A ROLE TO PLAY TO SAVE THIS SITUATION.

Consider This!

The second challenge as a result of climate change is the sea level rise. if we are lucky, we can keep the sea level rise over the centuries to stay below one meter, which is already an existential threat to some of these small island states and nations. and they may have to take appropriate adaptation measures, and their capacity for adaptation is limited, and we will need to be balancing between staying behind it and making huge effort to kind of raise the surface level of the islands artificially - some states like the Maldives are already doing that and this is fast encroaching to African islands.

KNOW THIS!
  • Our Inland waters are greatly affected by the climate change likewise our inlands
  • we are affected as well in this great mishap and this is a contributing factor to our numerous environmentally related issues.
The solutions are in our hands   

  • Resist from excessive burning to avoid the release of carbon into the atmosphere


  • Say NO to inappropriate waste disposal into water bodies and on land.


  • Say a big YES to recycling and save the planet from unexpected damage.

THE POND BUSINESS...A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO WEALTH CREATION

Having earlier informed you that one of the ways to secure the Marine creatures is through Aquaculture, then it is obvious that you will make money out of here as well; but before then, you need to Know the basics of Pond building.
We are going to be considering the Earthen Pond building here so you have to follow these steps carefully:

 1. Dig your pond: an ideal pond for stocking 1500 fishes from juvenile till 6 months maturity should be about 15m×15m (3fts deep), it could be up to 5fts deep if possible. You can use excavators to dig your pond and as well manual labourers. Notably, manual labourers may take up to 5 days to get the work done but an excavator can get the work done in a day or two.

 2. De-mud your pond: Assuming you have an old pond and it is not newly dug, the next step is to de-mud your pond; this is basically removing the mud from your pond to make it more suitable for your fishes.

 3. Ensure your dike/embankment is very high: Catfish farmers with earthen pond often have to deal with a lot of problems, and a common problem during the rainy season is flood which can carry the fishes away. Atleast a dike should be 2-3fts high for safety.

 4. Ensure there's an inlet and outlet: this often comes in form of a pipe through which water can enter and go out of your Pond. A functional inlet takes care of your Pond in case of heavy rain or slight flood. Moreover, it ensures the quality of your water. A lot of things can pollute stagnated water therefore it is necessary to have a good inlet and outlet.

 5. Treat your Pond: once your Pond is prepared and treated, the next step is to get it treated. It is necessary to get rid of all forms of predators inorder to ensure fish safety. To treat your Pond, use chemicals such as Phostoxin as well as limes. It is necessary to block water from coming in or going out for about two weeks when treating your pond. Assuming it's a 15m×15m by 4fts Pond, you can use 3 tubes of Phostoxin to treat it, and a tube contains 30 tablets, making a total of 90 tablets. Carcasses of predators will always float out after a day or two.

 ADVANTAGES OF EARTHEN POND
 1. It is not expensive to construct

 2. It can contain large number of Fish

 3. The fishes are bred in an environment, similar to their natual habitat. for more information on other fish containment.

LAUGH TIRE 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

Let's take a break!

  • 40KG PLASTIC BAGS STARVE WHALE TO DEATH...

For crying out loud, why will a whale swallow plastic bags¡??¡!
Scientist just found out what they believe is a record of the amount of plastic in the stomach of a whale that died in the Philippines. A post mortem examination revealed 40kg of multiple shopping bags, banana plantation bags and 16 rice sacs.... MAYBE THE LAST ONE YOU THREW INTO THE RIVER
Incredible! But how did the innocent  creature get to survive with all these things in it's stomach...(Turn over)

  • FISH DEATH RAISE FEAR OF EARTHQUAKE...
Did you know that three oarfish were found  dead on Japanese beaches and these creatures which can grow to 11metres (36fts) are believed by some natives to be an omen of disaster? This has raised the fear that there might be an earthquake or tsunami...
What! Could fishes probably determine natual disaster?...FOLLOW ME TO JAPAN LET'S ASK!

Meanwhile, Could it be true that if we want to save marine lives, we have to stop eating fish???????

THE MARINE LAMENTATION


INTRODUCTION

Technology has brought a big blow to the Marine world and with the Advent of sophisticated technological innovations by Man, the Marine creatures (a key feeding element of Man) is subjected but to the rear...

READ THIS CAREFULLY!!!
Crude oil spill on the ecosystem of the delta areas of oil producing countries especially in Africa and Asia had been on the front burner for over three decades. The delta areas are the areas of intensive and extensive crude oil exploration, exploitation and production and there are Industrial installations like pipeline materials, flow stations, gas clusters and gas flaring sites; all of which has adverse effect on the environment. 
The most affected by offshore oil spillage are aquatic lives as seen below:

Crude oil spillage has a devastating effect on the water environment by spreading over the surface in a thin layer that stops oxygen  getting to the plants and animals that live in the water.

BUT COME TO THINK OF THESE!!!
  • Can Humanity ever survive without crude oil?

  • Can Humanity also survive without the Fish?
In a situation of choice: which will be the most preferable for the human society?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT!!!

Don't forget the old old days...when crude oil was not yet in use and don't forget the possibility of onshore drilling as well.

Misplaced priority! Humanity seems to allow a recent discovery to infringe upon and as well attempt to erode a long lasting element.... It is high time we save these fragile wonderful creatures....
#Say NO to oil spillage
#Appeal for sophisticated oil spillage preventives (a notice to the oil companies)
#And save our Fishes today...

DO NOT FORGET!!! saving the fishes amounts to:
  • Saving our economy
  • Saving our diet
  • Saving the future of our children for better meals
  • And most importantly, saving a creature just like us.
Arise Now And...

THE SOLUTION TO AFRICA'S FALLEN ECONOMY Part 2

Invest In Fish Farming Business And Make More Money

One of the most popular Agribusiness in Africa is fish farming. People no longer depend on getting Fish locally in rivers and ponds through trial and error. Today, the modern farm practice has made it possible to grow fishes in the farm and control the input. 
According to an Aqua entrepreneur, fishery products is by far the most popular animal products in the market, Constituting more than 60% of meat produce in the African market. He explained that fish is one of the highest sources of protein, it is a low fat high quality protein that is filled with Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), adding that it is also very rich in calcium and phosphorus and is eaequal a great source of minerals such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium and potassium.

INTERESTING FACT

With proper planning and good management, $3000 investment in fish farming could easily result to $4000 of pure profit within six months. Due to the cost of production, fish produced from the farm is priced higher than those caught from the rivers and ponds by fishermen. Therefore, if there is good quantity of fisherman's fish in the market, you may find it difficult to sell as people would prefer the cheap ones.

Types of Fish You can Consider When Starting Out a Fish Business

CATFISH

Catfish is not the most popular fish in Africa, this fish specie is by far the most cultivated in the continent. One good thing about catfish is that, it is one of the easiest fish specie to cultivate.

TILAPIA

MACKEREL (Titus)
Mackerel is by far the most popular fish in the African market but so sad it is not farmed. All mackerel fish are wild caught but some farmers in Africa are considering the possibility of creating artificial salty water that will be similar to sea water where mackerel can only survive.

HOW TO BEGIN AN AQUACULTURE BUSINESS

  • You need to engage the service of a pond construction engineer or you can go to another fish farm to get the specification and construction requirements. The plumbing work must be properly done to ensure proper drainage.
  • Dig a borehole - adequate water supply is the life blood of fish farm and lack of it may result to disaster because water needs to be changed on regular interval. Borehole and river water are the most suitable while rain water and tap water from chemically treated source is not recommended for fish cultivation.
  • Install overhead tank - this is the water reservoir from which water is supplied to your ponds.
  • Get juvenile fish - get your juvenile from another farm that specializes in supplying it and make sure you are getting it from a healthy farm.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
You need to get attached to another fish farm for proper apprenticeship. For you to properly learn this trade, you need at least two months training on this. It's not the kind of training you get from one day seminars.

THE SOLUTION TO AFRICA'S FALLEN ECONOMY Part 1


THE WEALTHY POOR
What a contradiction! that anyone should be wealthy and poor at the same time...
Yet, I know of a land that suffers in her abundance...
Far in the East, where the innocent sun rises, lies a bare land upon the waters of the Earth... with the Mediterranean in the North, Atlantic in the South and West and the Indian waters in the East...she floats never to sink...she oozes out a tantalizing aroma and merchants from all domes scurry to her in a bid to grab their treasures. Yet on reaching, they find in her such a golden treasure left so unmined...
WHAT! they exclaimed...
How come she suffers in so much plenty?...she begs when there is so much in her to give out, she weeps for hunger when she lives in a garden of blooming fruits and veggies. She longs to run away to a better land but she is the BEST place...
Come oohhhh!!! the merchants trumpets call out to their neighbors abroad...run down to Africa, there is a treasure left so unmined. WHAT COULD THIS TREASURE BE? - the confused Africa asked...
QUESTION INDEED! Mother Africa, surrounded by waters of all colours and depths with sparkling FISH resources...yet you love the dry bones of the desert cow to chew... the dry bones as dry as they are, get stuck-up in your gum and causes blood to trickle yet you insists, these bones you must chew...
Oh! Poor Africa, why rush for clay when you live in gold, why deck your abode with clay when you yourself art golden...
Your golden Sahara sands are angry😠
Your bronze high peaked mountains are not happy πŸ˜”
Your blue sky and silver clouds are sad 😒 and their tears drop every time you see the rain falls to the ground. 
Your beautiful rivers are vexed 😑
All your elements are angry and they chant with one voice...
"AFRICA HAS MADE THE GREATEST OF ALL MISTAKES...SHE DISREGARDS AND EXPLOIT THE FISHES"

We are hungry all day, looking for food to eat when we have rivers of diverse fishes...we sleek and thin because we feed on no good deals yet we have good fishes swimming in our inland and ocean waters... what is happening to us? Why have we sold our marine heritage to a piece of nut offered by crude oil? Why have we sold our conscience against the sea? Oh sweet children of Africa, Come! Come now let's correct our mothersM mistake. Come let's go a fishing, come let's befriend the Fishes again. Come let's go to the river... What fortunes can we ever find anywhere except among the waters... come let's go ahead and mine this hidden treasures for a sustainable economy...!

THE CRYING RIVER!


How dare you come to me now!... when all others thou hast exploited
How dare you come to me now!... when I had become a despised land to you
How dare you come to me now!... when my little fishes you had destroyed in your greed
How dare you come to me now!... when my treasures are at their fullest.
Even though my treasures unto you I'll give, yet let me express my grief...
My shores lined with filths have become eyesore...my pure blue waters are stained with blood and dirts...into the river you all cast away your rejecteds, now unto me thou turnest again... Indeed I will heed you but this you must have in mind that;
THE FISHES MUST LIVE
SAY NO TO WATER POLLUTION AND CHEMICAL USAGE... with these you can make a fortune from me.
I will command the depths of my treasures to be open to you only if you will keep this agreement. Conserve the Fishes and the sea and I will conserve your economy... All fishes to your shores I'll cause to swim and the world shall gather at your feet oh Africa to behold this wonder of nature only if you will get rid of filths on your shores.
Your have a big problem but your solution lies here in the sea... protect the sea against pollution and exploitation and the depths of the sea shall yield abundantly for you. Crude oil, gold and silver can all yield but a little of what my Fishes can do for you.

AQUACULTURE; A MEANS TO MARINE LIVES SECURITY

Article Contents

  • Concept of Aquaculture
  • Purposes of Aquaculture
  • Building a fish pond to support Aquaculture
  • Credibility Endorsement (Meet Temitope). 


Focus
Can the rearing of Fishes for commercial purpose equally serve as a strategy for marine life conservation?

Concept of Aquaculture

The term, Aquaculture broadly refers to the cultivation of aquatic organisms in a controlled aquatic environment for any commercial, recreational or public purpose. The breeding, rearing and harvesting of fishes (the subject in focus) takes place in all types of water environment including ponds, rivers, lakes and man made "closed" system on land.
Aquaculture facilities at KEFTOP FARMS, No 10 Chief Odum close, Port Harcourt


Purposes of Aquaculture

  • Food production for human consumption
  • Rebuilding of population of threatened and endangered species.
  • Habitat restoration
  • Wild stock enhancement
  • Production of baitfish
  • Fish culture for zoos and aquariums
Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing forms of food production in the world. Because harvest from many wild fishes has peaked globally, Aquaculture is widely recognised as an effective way to meet the seafood demands of a growing population and as well secure various fish species from extinction through fingerlings rearing.
For more, click on:

Building a Fish pond to support Aquaculture
Focus
Are you interested in Aquaculture? Then you need a Fish pond to support your new Passion...
Do you think it is possible to build a pond? Here are some factors to be considered:
  • Fish Farm Layout: aim for the lowest possible risk to surrounding land; i.e land void of flooding, odour, run-off, etc
  • Containment structures:  before building your containment structure, you should asses the design of foundations, embarkments, freeboards, inlet/outlet works. 
  • Intake and discharge points: by using concrete blocks, rock amouring and other design solutions, you can minimize erosion and leaks around intake and discharge points.
  • Buffer Zones: mound formations provide separation between containment structures and environmentally sensitive areas and beneficial land uses.
  • Engineering plans and drawings: seek the advice of a qualified personnel when designing Aquaculture facilities. Up front costs for their expertise can be offset by saving on construction and operating costs.

Hotline: BACK TO THE HISTORIC...


THE ERROR!
What a big mistake!
We teach the children to say that His first miracle was at the wedding in Cana of Galilee; What an error!
When He left John at the waters of Jordan,
He dwelled in the desert for 40 days and nights in fasting and prayers,
When He left the desert, He went to Capernaum; where He met the Fisher brothers,
They cried that they had no catch all night,
He borderd their boats and caused them to launch the nets again, and this time, IT WAS A GREAT CATCH OF FISH...
This, Jesus did before He went for the wedding with His disciples at Cana. Therefore, the first miracle of the Master was on the Fish and not on the wine.

THE STORY!!!
A long time ago when the oceans were still blue and fresh  and silver coatings lined the seacoast, the Master made a long walk to the town of Capernaum where He met a band of frustrated fishers;
Fishers: we have laboured all night and no fish for a catch 😭😭😭😭😭😭

Master: Really? πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Did you launch into the deep? (the part of the river that is not polluted with spilled oil, refuses and sewage)

Fishers: πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Master: Then launch into the deep...





Fishers: Master, we made a great catch!
Master: Did you ever know that you drive the fishes farther away from shore everyday when you put your refuses, sewages and dirts into the river?

Fishers: Master, tell us, what can we do to bring the Fishes back

Master: Simple! Get rid of the garbages, sewages and refuses. Make your rivers clean and your Fishes will return to you again.
