Salmon on psychotropics, platypuses on prozac, and other strange tales from the wild

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/05/pharmaceutical-pollution/586006/

If people would trouble themselves to sleep 7-8 hours a night, eat vegetables and whole grains instead of grease fried rubish, and vile processed foods, gobs of salt and sugar, they would be happier and healthier.  The lack of discipline regarding food and health is an indicator of poverty of the soul and the mind.

Anti pharma all the way here.  I have not had a prescription filled out in over 10 years.

Humans cannot sustain themselves at this current trajectory.

Plans to expand Iceland's fish farms risk decimating wild salmon populations

A
Quotefive-fold expansion in open net fish farms that scientists believe could decimate Iceland's wild salmon stocks is pitting Big Aquaculture against ecologists in the country.

Next month, a parliamentary bill is expected to extend farm licenses from 10 to 16 years, while omitting critics from oversight panels and handing primary monitoring powers to industry.

Jon Kaldal of the Icelandic Wildlife Fund said: "We are at a crossroads. If industrial-scale open net salmon farming is allowed to take over, it will cause massive pollution and a dramatic increase in the risk of farmed fish escaping. Iceland is the final frontier for north Atlantic salmon."

PHOTOS: Wilmington's hidden Civil War history

In a 1917 StarNews article, a Confederate veteran described the defensive earthworks that surrounded Willmington during the Civil War. Many of these remnants still exist, though often now part of the area's hidden history.

Photos show Dr. Chris Fonvielle, an expert on Wilmington's Civil War history, on part of the earthworks of the Sugar Loaf defenses in a remote area of Carolina Beach State Park.

Canada moves to save Pacific Chinook salmon

QuoteThe federal government is planning to severely limit both the commercial and recreational fishery of Pacific Chinook salmon in British Columbia's Fraser River basin to save the endangered species from extinction, Fisheries Minister Jonathan Wilkinson announced Tuesday.

Recent assessments by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada for Chinook salmon from the Fraser River system have found Chinook are in danger of disappearing from Canada, Wilkinson said.

Of the 13 wild Fraser River Chinook salmon populations assessed, only one is not at risk, he added.

"The science is clear: Pacific Chinook salmon are in a critical state," said Wilkinson. "Without immediate action, this species could be lost forever."

Wild bee species critical to pollination on the decline

QuoteMore than a dozen wild bee species critical to pollinizing everything from blueberries to apples in New England are on the decline, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of New Hampshire wanted to understand if the documented declines hitting honeybees and bumblebees were also taking a toll on the lesser studied bee species in New Hampshire.

So, they examined 119 species in the state from a museum collection at the college dating back 125 years. Writing in the peer-reviewed journal Insect and Conservation Diversity this month, Sandra Rehan and Minna Mathiasson concluded 14 species found across New England were on the decline by as much as 90 percent. Several of them are leafcutter and mining bees, which unlike honeybees, nest in the ground.
