contribution to the conservation and rejuvenation of fish stocks and to global food security” The Central Pacific holds the last great tropical tuna fishery after stocks were depleted in other oceans The closure will notably give a refuge to bigeye tuna a species prized for sushi that according to John Hampton a fisheries scientist who heads the Oceanic Fisheries Programme of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community in New Caledonia has been overfished to about 20% to 30% of unexploited levels across the Pacific The closure will allow the bigeye that live inside the reserve to reconstitute their genetic diversity and thus their resilience to both fishing and climate change according to Jessica Meeuwig director of the Centre for Marine Futures at the University of Western Australia Crawley “We’ve got only two big areas of ocean fully closed to fishing and this one is so rich and productive that the benefits are going to be outstanding” says Meeuwig who recently led an expedition to the Chagos Islands in the Indian Ocean the world’s biggest no-take area (The third giant no-fishing area in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands is located farther north and has fewer fish) Kiribati created PIPA in 2008 in partnership with Conservation International of Arlington Virginia and the New England Aquarium in Boston but banned fishing in only 3% of the 408250-square-kilometer reserve—the parts within 22 kilometers of PIPA’s eight uninhabited islands Tong however has claimed in many speeches interviews and official documents that PIPA was immediately made “off-limits to fishing and other extractive uses” This has drawn criticism from many conservationists Peter Jones of University College London has called PIPA a “scam” According to Hampton an average of 50000 tonnes of tuna are taken out of the Phoenix Islands every year which makes it the most fished and overfished marine protected area in the world PIPA is only 11% of Kiribati’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) so the closure won’t have much effect on the catch of the fishing companies Hampton says Tong flew last January from Honolulu to Tarawa Kiribati’s capital island in the private jet of philanthropist Ted Waitt who made his fortune by founding the Gateway computer company Several members of the Kiribati Parliament said in interviews that Waitt pledged to spend some $5 million on scientific projects and enforcement in PIPA The next day 29 January Tong convened his Cabinet and they voted to close PIPA to fishing at the end of this year The vote was a remarkable turnaround as the reserve’s management plan called for only 25% more to be closed at the end of this year Much will depend on whether the closure is enforced Kiribati so far has made no effort to keep fishing boats away from the reefs around the islands But enforcing the fishing ban will be technically easier than in other giant reserves because PIPA sits inside Kiribati’s EEZ a heavily fished area where fishing vessels are required to be licensed and to constantly transmit their position or face losing access to the fishing grounds Alan Friedlander head of the Fisheries Ecology Research Lab at the University of Hawaii Manoa says that the fishing ban will not only allow the ocean-going species to grow back to their natural densities but also benefit the reef fish populations already among the healthiest in the world Longliners who use baited hooks to catch tuna billfish and sharks—and incidentally kill significant numbers of turtles and birds—are known to regularly fish close to islands he says “So there’s a lot of collateral damage from longline fisheries where they’re fishing close to shore” he adds “Closing the whole area will make it more difficult to cheat” Since the 2010 fishing ban in the Chagos Marine Reserve marine scientists have been analyzing its impact and developing monitoring techniques that could be put to use in PIPA “Our objective is to create a wired ocean” says Barbara Block a shark and tuna specialist at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove California who led an expedition to the Chagos reefs “We hope we can make this a model of how we can monitor all big remote marine reserves” “We use lightly baited double underwater cameras to tell us who’s there how big they are and how numerous” Meeuwig explains “So far we’ve had 129 midwater camera deployments that run for 3 hours” The scientists viewing the footage filmed in the open ocean identified 1825 individual fish from 32 species—“more biodiversity than we expected” she adds Meanwhile catching and releasing fish allows the scientists to tag them which tells them where the fish go and how many spend their whole lives inside the protected area Tissue samples taken from those fish will allow for genetic analysis which points to population size and for molecular isotope analysis which indicates what fish eat—something likely to change as the tuna population doubles over the next decade changing the trophic structure? Michelle Grady director of the Pew Charitable Trusts’ oceans work in Australia says Kiribati’s example should encourage the new Australian federal government to implement its predecessor’s plan to close half of the Coral Sea to fishing “If one of the poorest countries in the world can do it so can we” she saysA distant relative of today’s giraffes was a bit of an odd creature: It was about the size of a bull moose but it had a long neck that could stretch both up to eat tree leaves and down to eat grass That’s the conclusion of the first comprehensive analysis of a complete set of fossilized neck bones from the animal known as Samotherium major (center image) Samotherium which lived in the open woodlands of Eurasia about 7 million years ago had a neck about 1 meter long—about half the length of that of today’s giraffes (And like the vast majority of mammals from tiny mice to towering giraffes it had seven neck vertebrae) Some scientists have long presumed today’s giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis right) which includes a handful of subspecies scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa evolved from an animal that looked like its close cousin the okapi (Okapia johnstoni left) which lives in the tropical forests of central Africa The team’s analyses of bones from all three animals bolster that notion—and not just because the neck bones are of a length between the giraffe’s and the okapi’s For example ridges and other features that are prominent on the okapi’s neck bones and missing entirely on the giraffe’s are typically present but smaller on Samotherium’s the researchers report online today in Royal Society Open Science (Embedded image credit:Nikos Solounias)Written by Sahim Salim | New Delhi | Published: March 16 2010 12:34 am Related News The police have found illegal mining and tree-felling in the Capitals only protected sanctuarythe Asola Bhatti Sanctuary The Southeast district police last week raided a plot in Gupta ColonySangam Viharto recover Badarpur stonesmined illegally from the nearby Aravalli Hillspolice sources said Several labourers working with the illegally stored stones fled at the sight of the police teamaccording to a source A truck driveridentified as one Daler Singhwas later arrested The raid and the subsequent FIR was lodged on March 9police officials said The raid came after several complaints to Sangam Vihar police from forest department officials (see box) in the last couple of years about illegal mining and tree-felling in the protected sanctuary The complaints allegedly did not yield any response Quarrying has been banned on the Supreme Courts orders in the Aravalli range in neighbouring Gurgaon and Faridabad districts to protect the ecologically fragile hills On March 9a social workerRishipal Badhanasent a written complaint to Assistant Commissioner of Police (Ambedkar Nagar) Mahipal Singhalleging that Station House Officer of Sangam ViharSatpalallowed illegal operations inside the sanctuary On ACP Singhs instructionsInspector Rajkumar Shah from Ambedkar Nagar police station conducted the raid Post-raida case under Mines and Minerals Act was registered the same day (Newsline has a copy of the FIR) According to a highly placed sourcesubsequent investigations have found a well-networked operation in place Cross-border activityA senior investigating officer said the initial probe found illegal mining of Badarpur stone in Haryanas Anangpur areajust next to the sanctuaryand transported through Asola Sanctuary to Gupta Colony in Sangam Vihar The investigating officer said: The mining is done about 10 feet from the sanctuary wallsin Anangpur The Badarpur stone is then loaded on camelsas vehicles like tractors and tempos are not allowed inside the sanctuaryand transported to Delhi The miners have broken the sanctuarys boundary wall on the Sangam Vihar side herethe illegally mined stones are loaded on trucks and tractors and taken to Gupta Colony for storage?
