Climate change brings tainted shellfish to northern seas - UPI.com


CIWARS Analysis

A toxic mix of increased bacteria and increased water temperature is poisoning our oceans and the shellfish we eat because they are largely bottom feeders that filter the mud/sand on the ocean flow.  This is also combined with increased bacteria in the water from human waste and then nitrogen from fertilizers.  This is not a temporary problem that will go away since water temperatures will continue to rise, which activates the bacteria and nitrogen mix.



"From long-term data, it is apparent that the level of these pathogens is rising in the ocean as a result of global warming," said study author Luigi Vezzulli. He is an associate professor with the department of earth, environmental and life sciences at the University of Genoa, in Italy.
