Fish moving poleward at rate of 26 kilometers per decade
Large numbers of fish will disappear from the tropics by 2050, finds a new University of Britsh Columbia study that examined the impact of climate change on fish stocks. The study identified ocean hotspots for local fish extinction but also found that changing temperatures will drive more fish into the Arctic and Antarctic waters.

Migrating animals' pee affects ocean chemistry
Tiny animals migrating from the ocean's surface to the sunless depths release ammonia, the equivalent of our urine, that plays a significant role in marine chemistry, particularly in low-oxygen zones.

Stunning finds from ancient Greek shipwreck
A Greek and international team of divers and archaeologists has retrieved stunning new finds from an ancient Greek ship that sank more than 2,000 years ago off the remote island of Antikythera. The rescued antiquities include tableware, ship components, and a giant bronze spear that would have belonged to a life-sized warrior statue.

Human health, wealth require expanded marine science, experts say
Toxic nanoparticles, micro-plastic pollution and the potential of rising seawater temperatures to transform chemicals at a molecular level into 'substances able to stimulate / participate in tumour genesis' are among concerns behind a collective call by 340 scientists and other experts for greater scrutiny of the close connections between the oceans and human health.   A program on oceans and human health is the first of 18 priorities cited in a declaration ending the three-day EurOcean 2014 meeting in Rome.

Designing rivers: Environmental flows for ecosystem services in rivers natural and novel
Authors discuss different approaches to achieving 'environmental flows' of water to sustain river ecosystems, from controlled releases designed with specific objectives for ecology and ecosystem services in mind, like the recent experiment on the Colorado River, to hands-off policies that minimize or reverse alterations to the natural flow of the river, like the recent demolition of dams on the Elwha River in Washington State.
