Warming oceans cause largest movement of marine species in two million years
In the Arctic, melting sea ice during recent summers has allowed a passage to open up from the Pacific ocean into the North Atlantic, allowing plankton, fish and even whales to into the Atlantic Ocean from the Pacific.
The discovery has sparked fears delicate marine food webs could be unbalanced and lead to some species becoming extinct as competition for food between the native species and the invaders stretches resources.
Rising ocean temperatures are also allowing species normally found in warmer sub-tropical regions to into the northeast Atlantic.
A venomous warm-water species Pelagia noctiluca has forced the closure of beaches and is now becoming increasingly common in the waters around Britain.
The highly venomous Portuguese Man-of-War, which is normally found in subtropical waters, is also regularly been found in the northern Atlantic waters.
A form of algae known as dinoflagellates has also been found to be moving eastwards across the Atlantic towards Scandinavia and the North Sea.
Huge blooms of these marine plants use up the oxygen in the water and can produce toxic compounds that make shellfish poisonous.
Plankton sampling in the north Atlantic over the past 70 years have also shown that other species of plankton, normally only found in the Pacific ocean, have now become common in Atlantic waters.
The scientists, who have been collaborating on the Climate Change and European Marine Ecosystems Research project, found the plankton species, called Neodenticula seminae, traveled into the Atlantic through a passage through the Arctic sea ice around that has opened up a number of times in the last decade from the Pacific Ocean.
(From 2010) When everything in the seas die, the ramification is this: The dead sea life from the sea alone, not counting the water fowls, will be so numerous as the dead float to the top of the ocean waters, and the stench of decaying oceanic remains, that it will be impossible to clear the ocean of the deadly brew that will start moving through the ocean currents to other areas of the earth’s oceans that surround this planet; that is what the demons were referring to about the “domino effect.” Even they are smart enough to know that the disruption of sea life is catastrophic; we are talking about the cessation of the lives of millions of fish and other sea borne life forms that will die and rot in the oceans of this planet; shipping goods will be disrupted because of the flotilla of carnage in the sea; as mankind tries to correct the growing catastrophe, they will cause a loss of many ships because things will get even further out of hand. The Gulf will represent the loss of the first third of deaths to sea life.
Revelation 8:8, 9 “The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain ablaze with fire was hurled into the sea. So a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
