North Americans was a Salmon Fishing

Researchers studying 11, there 500-year-old fish bones have discovered the oldest evidence of salmon fishing in North America. According to their findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week, salmon spawning runs had been established by the end of the last Ice Age.

Paleoindians have been traditionally considered big-game hunters, though their use of fish and other resources have been difficult to determine because of the lack of preserved remains. These days, millions of salmon migrate from the ocean to spawn (and die) in their natal rivers and lakes. But many of those rivers used to be blocked by glacial ice, which severely restrict salmon ranges. However, there may have been a potential glacial refugium: Beringia, the mostly ice-free land bridge between Asia and Alaska.

The premise behind the Amsterdam-based venture Plastic Whale is beautifully simple. First, the company fishes out plastic bottles and other debris from the city’s numerous canals. Second, when enough bottles are collected, the plastic is transformed into material to make a boat. Third, the new boat is used to fish for more plastic bottles—to make more boats. Genius.

World's First Plastic Company

Plastic Whale captures debris and plastic waste from Amsterdam’s many canals. Thousands of discarded plastic bottles are repurposed into building materials for the company’s boats and even bottle caps are used to create a colorful mosaic for the boat’s floor. The company then uses the boats to fish for more trash to make more boats. Photo credit: Facebook/courtesy photos

A dog that fell off a fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean and had been presumed dead more than a month ago has now been found alive by Navy officials on an island 80 miles off the coast of San Diego.

The 1-year-old German shepherd, dosage named Luna, store was first reported missing the morning of Feb. 10 about 2 miles off of San Clemente Island by her owner, online Nick Hayworth, a fisherman, according to Sandy DeMunnik, public affairs officer for Naval Base Coronado.


A mature sperm whale found dead in Taiwan had vast quantities of plastic bags and fishing nets filling its stomach, capsule highlighting the devastating toll of marine pollution.

According to the Association Foreign Press (AFP) news agency, cialis the 15-meter (49-foot) whale was first found stranded near the town of Tongshi on Oct. 15.

Coastguards and scientists returned it to the sea, there but three days later, the same whale was found dead around 20 kilometers (12 miles) away.


After conducting an autopsy of the whale, local marine biologists reported that there was enough plastic bags and fishing nets found in its stomach to fill an excavator bucket.

Professor Wang Chien-ping, head of the whale research center at National Cheng-Kung University, told the AFP that while the whale might have died from many causes, such as heart or lung disease or infections, trash was also a culprit.

“The large amount of man-made garbage in the stomach could reduce its appetite and cause malnutrition,” he said. “It was likely a critical cause of death.”

About 80 percent of the sperm whale’s diet is giant squid, so this whale might have mistaken plastic bags for food.

He Chih-ying, spokeswoman for The Society of Wilderness conservation group, spoke about how ocean trash is a major plague to marine life.

“We frequently heard of marine animals killed after swallowing lots of garbage, but this one was the biggest in size for many years,” she told the AFP.

The harmful effects of marine pollution have been choking the entire marine food chain, from plankton to much larger creatures.

In August, a group of fishermen in Middle Harbour, Sydney, came across an endangered Southern right whale struggling with a plastic bag and fishing line caught in its mouth. Luckily, the men were able to remove the debris.

Marine biologist Tegan A. L. Mortimer told EcoWatch that incident is a reminder that these creatures live in our backyards and are impacted by human activities.

“Globally, the leading threats to whales, dolphins and porpoises are entanglement in fishing gear and strikes from vessels,” she said. “The impacts of plastic pollution on these animals isn’t well understood but we do know, from examples like this, that these animals are interacting with our plastic trash. Plastic in the ocean is something that everyone can have a positive impact on.”

More than a tonne of heroin worth an astonishing £160 million was seized in the Indian Ocean in a successful drugs bust led by the Royal Navy.

Operation Shirikisho targeted four fishing boats heading to East Africa and stopped the high-grade drug reaching the continent and then Europe.

Boats and helicopters were deployed during the operation and both the French and Australian Navy were heavily involved in the seizure.

After the illicit cargo was recovered it was lined up on a warship – as these astonishing photographs show – before it was taken away to be destroyed.

Commander of combined task force, Commodore Guy Robinson said: ‘This has been a highly successful operation to prevent a very significant amount of heroin from reaching the shores of Europe.

‘It is also an excellent example of the impressive co-operation across CMF contributing-nations, at sea, in the air and ashore. We will continue to tackle this menace whenever, and wherever we can.’

The first haul of narcotics was made by the Royal Australian Navy when HMAS Darwin’s boarding team targeted a fishing dhow in May.

Following an eight-and-a-half hour search, the team uncovered 380kg of heroin, packed in bags.

Then 12 hours later, the same crew boarded another suspect dhow and found a further 512kg of drugs. A third suspect dhow was later boarded and another 60kg was discovered.

A few days later a French Marine Nationale ship patrolling off the coast of East Africa sent a boarding team to search another vessel and 130kg of heroin was recovered.

UK-led CTF 150 is part of Combined Maritime Forces, a multi-national naval partnership, which covers 3.2 million square miles of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea, and the Gulf region.

Captain John Craig, the Deputy Commander of CTF 150, said: ‘In addition to the successful seizure of such a large amount of drugs, operations like Shirikisho help us refine our tactical skills as we coordinate extensive air searches over enormous areas of ocean to locate traffickers in very small dhows.

‘The opportunity to work with French and Australian ships and aircraft also improves our collective understanding of each other’s operating capabilities, to make sure that we are as prepared as we can be for operations in the future.
