June 30th, 2015. Zooplankton in the ocean are eating microscopic plastic particles and passing those contaminants up the food chain to salmon, whales and other species at an “alarming” rate.

That’s the conclusion of a new study co-authored by Dr. Peter Ross, the top ocean pollution researcher at the Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Science Centre.

Zooplankton are tiny creatures that make up a major food source for juvenile salmon, as well as baleen whales.

June 30th, 2015. A distressed humpback anchored to the sea floor with fishing ropes was rescued by a Department of Fisheries team and set free, the third time in a week that rescuers had to untangle whales trapped in ropes or lines.

“The whale just took off like a shot. It was really amazing. We were exhausted and the whale was exhausted but it should make a full recovery,” said Paul Cottrell of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

By TEPCO’s own admission, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station has continued to dump huge amounts of radioactive materials into the air and water for over 4 years, endangering Walruses and other marine mammals, as well as all life. Judge yourself by looking at the maps below. They need to be protected from Fukushima, as well as from Shell oil drilling.

Although the cause of the skin lesions observed at the walrus haulout in 2011 remains unknown, surveillance efforts in 2012 and 2013 found very few new walrus cases, suggesting that the conditions contributing to elevated levels of skin lesions in walruses are no longer present.https://alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/newsreleases/2014/ume051214.pdf Doug Dasher and others wondered if the lesions were from Fukushima hot particles falling on ice: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2014/05/26/radioactive-reindeer-nuclear-guinea-pigs-part-x-of-a-series/
