Locating Ocean Chlorophyll
There are single-celled algae and other plant-like organisms known as phyto-plankton at the base of the ocean food web. The way plants are on land, phyto-planktons use chlorophyll and other light-harvesting pigments to carry out photosynthesis, absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide to produce sugars for fuel.
Aquaculture is the process of breeding, raising, and harvesting fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. In other words, it is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other organisms. The aquaculture process in U.S is an environmentally responsible source of food and commercial products as it helps in creating healthier habitats, and is used to rebuild stocks of threatened or endangered species.
Sea surface temperature
The sea surface temperature is the water temperature close to the ocean's surface. Though the actual meaning of the surface varies but it is somewhere close between 1 millimetre (0.04 in) and 20 metres (70 ft) below the sea surface.
Alarming human impacts on oceans
Human beings have deteriorated this natural resource in a big way but the main areas of human impact can be divided into those related to ocean pollution, habitat destruction. This also includes human behaviours contributing to pollution, over fishing, over-harvesting, boating, agricultural runoff and coastal development.
