Workshop of coast and shallow sea. Coastline and the Shallow sea region that bring up biological diversity. We are learn abut good practice and the lesson learns. How is a Shallow sea region important to marine biological diversity? We preserve a continuity of the coastline in good condition and ...
Scientists are warning of another "devastating" loss of coral due to a spike in sea temperatures.
An underwater research craft has spotted a "ghostlike" octopus that appears to belong to a previously unknown species on the ocean floor near Hawaii, a discovery that highlights how little is known about the deep sea, a U.S. zoologist said on Saturday.
Allowing mangrove forests to recover naturally result in more resilient habitats that benefit both wildlife and people, say conservationists.
SOUTHAMPTON, England, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- New maps charted using sonar sensors on Autosub6000 have revealed the importance of "marine snow" to the distribution of biomass on the ocean floor.
The EU has imposed sanctions on imports from Sri Lanka's fisheries after the country failed to curb illegal fishing.
The fossil of a marine reptile ''re-discovered'' in a museum is the largest of its kind on record, say scientists. The ''sea dragon'' belongs to a group that swam the world's oceans 200 million years ago, while dinosaurs walked the land. The specimen is the largest Ichthyosaurus to be described, ...
The importance of seagrasses to the health of coastal ecosystems is underlined in new research conducted around Indonesian atolls.
A report published in the journal Science this month analyzed the health of global marine populations and the impact humans are having on it. DW talked to the study's lead author Douglas McCauley
Coral reefs are among the world's richest ecosystems - and they will disappear from the face of the Earth before this century is over if we don't make serious changes, ecologist Peter Sale told DW.
The government agency responsible for the Great Barrier Reef says urgent action is needed to save the world heritage site after yet-to-be-published surveys found the record coral bleaching damage earlier this year was even worse than initially thought.
University of Adelaide researchers have for the first time demonstrated that the ocean acidification expected in the future will reduce fish diversity significantly, with small 'weedy' species dominating marine environments.
Scientist Karen Wiltshire from Germany’s AWI Institute is the new chair of the global Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO). She tells DW that science should be more involved in marine protected areas.
Scientists discover corals that look healthy but cannot reproduce, dashing hopes such reefs could repopulate bleached areas

Take a stroll on a beach and you're likely to encounter plentiful evidence of life from the ocean amid the flotsam: stray clumps of seaweed, colorful seashells, even the occasional crustacean or jellyfish.
Paleontologists have found the remains of an unknown type of pliosauroidea - an extinct marine reptile - that lived alongside the dinosaurs 130 million years ago on the bank of the Volga River in Russia. The skull of the reptile was first discovered in 2002, but until now had not been identified ...
