Monthly Ocean Science Roundup – April 2020

Date: 30th April 2020

This issue explores:

  • Changes in fish communities due to benthic habitat shifts under ocean acidification
  • Failures in the design and implementation of management plans of Marine Protected Areas: An empirical analysis for the North-east Atlantic Ocean
  • Failures in the design and implementation of management plans of Marine Protected Areas: An empirical analysis for the North-east Atlantic Ocean

Welcome to the April 2020 issue of the OneOcean Science Mailout. We hope everyone is staying safe during these difficult times. Despite many of us being in lockdown due to COVID-19, communicating the importance of Blue Nature and the ocean continues to be desirable and effective.

Examples of the positive impact of lockdown on nature has had a strong media presence in recent weeks. If you have seen any positive and remarkable examples of Blue Nature rebounding since the COVID-19 lockdown, please do send them to: lydia@communicationsinc.co.uk.

We must aim to keep the ocean on the radar during this period and make some noise around the importance of the ocean and protecting nature. 

With this in mind, we’re bringing you three recent publications around ocean acidification and changes in fish communities, Marine Protected Areas design and global patterns in marine sediment carbon stocks.

You can find out more at www.oceanprotect.org and by following #OneOceanOnePlanet.
