第16期 | 蓝色脉搏·海洋生命共同体速递



导语 Introduction




The annual meeting of the Commission for the Conservation of Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) closed in last week. What is concerning is not only the delayed progress of Marine Protected Area, but also the confrontation between Russia and the rest of the commission regarding one IUU case. This reflects the need for the returning of mutual trust and good faith in global governance.




Comparing with the slow progress in the negotiation for MPAs in the Southern Ocean, science and policy researches relating to the conservation of Southern Ocean have been fruitful this year. There have been an extensive collections of relevant papers in our previous issues, more new research and perspectives are put in this issue. Among which the article Dr. Meyer et. al published on Nature has also been submit to CCAMLR. The paper discussing the interplay between BBNJ and the Antarctic Treaty System is also interesting.

The 2020 annual meeting of the Commission for the Conservation of Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) closed at 20:00 UTC last Friday. Many important items have been deferred to 2021.


(2)德国科考船 “Polarstern “号在完成了一次非凡的北冰洋考察后,已驶回母港。这艘船在极地北部停留了一年,目的是研究北极的气候以及它是如何变化的。

The German Research Vessel Polarstern has sailed back into its home port after completing a remarkable expedition to the Arctic Ocean. The ship spent a year in the polar north, studying the Arctic climate and how it is changing.



Recent warming trends and historical satellite imagery (Landsat) show decreasing snow cover on Cape Irizar, Ross Sea, Antarctica since 2013. In January 2016, several abandoned Adélie penguin sites and abundant surface remains of penguin bones, feathers, and carcasses that appeared to be fresh were being exposed by melting snow and were sampled for radiocarbon analysis. 



Researchers from the University of Hong Kong, who have set up the Wildlife Conservation Forensics Laboratory, have developed a new genetic monitoring technology that can identify many species by collecting small water samples from vegetable market drains. It could help regulators spot and monitor the rampant trade in endangered marine species.



UN summit tries to kick start stalled COP15 biodiversity talks. The online summit tried to refocus governments on the world’s ecological crisis, but little progress was made.



Pandemic has resulted in huge boost to seafood sales worldwide. Grocery retailers around the world have realized a significant increase in seafood sales as consumers are cooking at home more due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place and dining restrictions.


观点 Perspectives

南极半岛探索之旅 | One Ocean Expeditions 制

(1)Carolyn J. Hogg等:“我们应该趁早保护南极半岛。禁止在变暖的沿海水域捕鱼,限制旅游业和陆地上的建筑,此举将有助于保护海洋哺乳动物和海鸟。”

Carolyn J. Hogg et al. :” Protect the Antarctic Peninsula before it’s too late. Banning fishing in warming coastal waters and limiting tourism and construction on land will help to protect marine mammals and seabirds.”


(2)Bettina Meyer等:“基于生态系统的高效南极磷虾管理应解决磷虾种群维护、行为分析和生态适应等方面的不确定性。”

Bettina Meyer et al. :” Successful ecosystem-based management of Antarctic krill should address uncertainties in krill recruitment, behavior and ecological adaptation.”


(3)Rashid Sumaila等:“随着气候变化的影响,结束过度捕捞可以保护我们海洋的健康。”

Rashid Sumaila et al. :” As climate change begins to bite, ending overfishing will safeguard our oceans’ health.”


(4)IISD:“在首届 ‘海洋管理年度审查’期间,CEO们讨论了建立健康和富有成效的海洋的五个‘临界点’。这五个基于海洋的解决方案可以支持可持续发展目标与疫情后的经济恢复:完全可追溯的可持续海产品;低碳化航运;利用海洋电力;绘制海洋地图;以及杜绝废物进入海洋。”

IISD:” During the inaugural Ocean Stewardship Annual Review, CEOs addressed five ‘tipping points’ for a healthy and productive ocean. Five ocean-based solutions can support SDGs, pandemic recovery: fully traceable sustainable seafood; decarbonized shipping; harnessing ocean electricity; mapping the ocean; and ending waste entering the ocean.”


(5)MPA NEWS:“碳抵消已经是现有各种碳交易计划的一部分,并将被纳入《巴黎协定》应对气候变化的方法中。在海洋保护区的背景下,它们代表了一种新的融资方法,也是一种为了鼓励生态系统良性发展而采取的货币化的奖励方式。“

MPA NEWS:” Carbon offsets are already part of various existing carbon-trading schemes, and will be included as part of the Paris Agreement’s approach to combating climate change. In the context of MPAs, they represent a novel approach to financing, and a way to monetize sites in a manner that rewards making ecosystems healthier and more productive.”



The Pew Charitable Trusts:” Because the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) have not yet reached an agreement on a future fisheries framework, it is unclear how the stocks shared between the two parties will be managed. It is clear, however, that EU and UK leaders need to do more to make progress on ending overfishing if they are going to deliver on their international obligations and publicly stated commitments to do so. Despite uncertainties, EU and UK leaders must achieve sustainable fisheries.”

[Climate·Ocean] Future climate response to Antarctic Ice Sheet melt caused by anthropogenic warming

南极冰原融雪可能对未来的全球气候产生重要影响。在此,我们报告了在未来温室气体排放情景IPCC RCP4.5和RCP8.5下,使用耦合数值模型进行的多世纪(目前-2250年)气候模拟,融水和冰的排放基于冰原的动态热动力学模型。与忽略排放的模型相比,排放会导致冰缘的次表层海洋温度提高1℃以上。与此相反,扩大的海冰和南大洋降温2~10°C的表层空气和表层海洋,将减缓到2250年全球人为因素变暖的速度。此外,北极冬季海冰的损失和大西洋经线翻转环流的减弱也被延后了几十年。研究结果表明,需要更准确地计算冰层的融水输入量,以便作出更准确的气候预测。

联合国关于国家管辖范围以外区域生物多样性的,具有法律约束力的国际文书(UN ILBI)将与关于海洋保护区的南极条约体系(ATS)相互协同。UN ILBI进一步补充和支持了南大洋的海洋保护。根据ATS指定海洋保护区的现状,其治理系统日益分散。南极条约协商国和南极海洋生物资源养护委员会成员应采取积极主动的步骤,协调整个ATS的海洋保护举措。ATS与ILBI进程的衔接对于确保未来的互动是机会,而不是冲突至关重要。



[Area-based management] Area-based conservation in the twenty-first century

研究展示了各国政府自2010年以来扩大保护区的做法,在增加生物多样性(生态区、12,056个受威胁物种、”关键生物多样性区 “和荒野区)和生态系统服务(生产性渔业、陆地和海洋的碳服务)等不同要素的覆盖面方面取得了一定的成果。为了在2020年后取得更大成功,基于区域保护必须更有效地促进实现全球生物多样性目标——从防止灭绝到保留最完整的生态系统,且必须与许多土著居民、社区团体和个人更好地合作。区域养护的长期成功需要《生物多样性公约》缔约方确保提供足够的资金,为气候变化做好准备,并使生物多样性养护成为土地、水和海洋管理政策中更有力的一部分。
