Hawaii researchers are studying whether human activity has a negative impact on fish and the reef at Hanauma Bay
Several new studies have been launched since the covid-19 shutdown.
Most tropical reefs are no longer able to both sustain coral reef ecosystems and the livelihoods of the people who depend on them.
A new study shows that fish stocks in coral reefs along the coast of East Africa have been fished to worryingly low levels.
Over the next 20 years, scientists estimate about 70 to 90% of all coral reefs will disappear primarily as a result of warming ocean waters, ocean acidity, and pollution.
Every coral reef on Earth could be wiped out within decades due to rising sea surface temperatures and acidic waters caused by climate change and pollution, according to a new study.
Our current crisis reaffirms the importance of weighing the health benefits of eating fish against chemical exposure risks.
