Most of the ‘paper parks’ - or MPAs that fall short of safeguarding marine biodiversity - are located in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Researchers confirmed what was already known: jellyfish eat bigger prey as they grow, which means they also occupy a higher position in the food web as they grow. They also found that some of the concentrations of ‘healthy fats,’ increase as jellyfish grow. These changes might be influenced by their diet, and as they feed on bigger prey with higher levels of fatty acids, the jellyfish accumulate more of these fatty acids.

The UBC Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries professors say winning this prize gives them an opportunity to spread an urgent and evidence-based message: all fishing on the high seas should be banned.

If southern resident killer whales ate just low-lipid salmon, they would have to eat around 80,000 more Chinook salmon every year than if they just ate high-lipid salmon.

The team of marine biologists, including IOF Master’s student Lauren Shea, will row across the Atlantic Ocean - a race that will run 24 hours a day for almost 2 months

This Prize honours exceptional achievement in research focused on animals whose conservation and welfare are affected by human activity.
