IN BRIEF - Imported crab cargo movement is strong

Thursday, December 07, 2023

More orders for the end of the year

Lower prices for crabs, including those from Russia, have led to more active crab shipments at the end of the year, when demand is high. When we interviewed several trading companies, manufacturers, and processors, we found that "crab sales have increased by 50% compared to the previous year" (manufacturers) and "We have received many additional orders, resulting in an increase of 50% compared to the initial order volume up to around September."

IN BRIEF - Ocean stores more carbon than expected, study finds

Thursday, December 07, 2023

According to an international study, carried out in particular by a biologist from the CNRS, the ocean has a carbon dioxide storage capacity almost 20% greater than previous estimates, in particular thanks to plankton.

The ocean stores, through phytoplankton, 20% more carbon than previously estimated, according to a scientific study published Wednesday December 6 by the journal Nature . This is an estimate which is very robust and which reinforces the role of ocean biology in long-term carbon capture , Frédéric Le Moigne, oceanographer and marine biologist at CNRS, co-author of this study, told AFP . with Chinese and American researchers.

The new estimate amounts to 15 billion tonnes per year, an increase of around 20% compared to the estimates mentioned by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) in 2021, according to a press release from the CNRS. This storage is carried out thanks to phytoplankton, which transforms CO 2 into organic tissue by photosynthesis. Some of this phytoplankton, when it dies, sinks from the ocean surface in the form of marine snow.

To measure these marine snow flows, the researchers based themselves on existing databases of carbon concentrations in the ocean measured by oceanographic vessels, explains the researcher.
