Marine Scientists find that unsustainable harvesting of large predatory fish, along with the culling of sharks, can have far-reaching consequences for the way climate change is being handled.
A recent study found that there is a decline in marine diversity over the last several decades, fish populations have declined by 75 percent while the population for marine vertebrates has decreased significantly.
Why do whales use echolocation when bacteria do not? Now, scientists have announced that body size determines available sensing modes.
Scientists have discovered that microbeads are spreading across the world's seas, affecting water quality, wildlife, and resources used by people.
It turns out that global marine populations have halved since the 1970s.
There's a hidden problem impacting our world's oceans: ghost gear.
Mercury pollution in California may be coming from a surprising source: elephant seals. Scientists have found that molting elephant seals actually shed considerable amounts of mercury into coastal waters.
Do whales have culture? That may just be the case. Scientists believe they have new insights into the different dialects used by groups of sperm whales
Seals are helping scientists plumb the depths of the world's remotest oceans. After hooking up seals with sensors, researchers have collected data that builds a detailed picture of areas that are currently difficult for humans to visit.
Drawing on recent breakthroughs, they've taken a comprehensive look at how life in the ocean has responded to environmental change from the Triassic to the Anthropocene.
Scientists have uncovered a new trend in evolution. They've found that animals tend to get larger over time.
