MUD and BLUE BIKINIS GAMES - Contestants posed for photos during the Miss Ocean Contest in Zhoushan, island city of east China's Zhejiang Province (June 28, 2010).  A total of 50 beauties from more than 40 countries attended the 10-day contest, taking part in mud-wrestling, tug-of-war (29 June) and other events. We're not quite sure what the significance of the mud was. Whether the mud has therapeutic properties, or maybe it was just the girls having fun at the seaside. 





Miss Ocean contests are intended to increase public awareness of pollution and other issues affecting the seas that we depend on for food. Congratulations to the organizers of this event, with especial thanks to all of the sponsors and supporters that made the event possible. None of this would have been possible without the women who cared enough to enter the competition. In the international drive to empower women (G7), women who follow their heart are empowering themselves and other women around the world - leading by example.





UNBELIEVABLE - That as an intelligent species, we'd let our planet get into this mess. The Miss Ocean Vietnam contest is a chance for the crowned ocean miss to tell the world about a problem that not very much is happening about in real terms, with world leaders such a President Barack Obama and Ban Ki Moon, apparently stymied as to a cure.





The health of Earth’s oceans is still ailing although slightly improved, says the latest edition of the Ocean Health Index, issued this week. It gave the planet’s waters a score of “D,” saying it could be worse and that conservation and protection measures are having a positive effect. The goal of the study, say its authors, is “to encourage decisions that create a healthier ocean and to track progress toward that goal.”

The Index assigned the oceans an overall score of 67, with the waters off Canada’s Prince Edward Island and Australia’s Heart and McDonald Island the top scorers at 93, with the largely uninhabited wildlife preserves of Howland Island and Baker Island in the equatorial Pacific scoring 92. On the low end were countries like Somalia, Eritrea, Guinea Bisseau, Pakistan, Grenada and Angola, which scored 48-49. Both the High Seas,which it included for the first time this year, and the coastal territories were assigned the score of 67 while Antarctica, also graded for the first time, got 72.







“Certainly the score of 67 needs to be much higher if the ocean is sustainably to help meet the needs of our rising human population,” said the study. “Although there is much room for improvement, some people might have expected an even lower score given all the news reports about ocean acidification, oil spills, plastic trash, dead zones, overfishing and others—serious impacts that will become worse if their causes are not reduced or eliminated.”

The index authors noted that scores were slightly higher overall from the previous two years, improving in areas like biodiversity, coastal protection, and sense of place, and they projected slightly higher scores in upcoming years.

“Humans and our activities are part of the ocean, and the human-ocean system is healthier if it delivers the most benefits for us that it can without jeopardizing the future health or function of the web of life that the ocean contains,” they conclude.








Remarkable range of benefits we get from healthy oceans:

1. Food provision through wild fisheries and fish farming. About 4.3 billion people get around 15% of their animal protein and essential nutrition from seafood.

2. Natural products like shells, seaweed, fish oil and coral. Each year, people consume almost 23 million tons of seaweed alone, an amount valued at over US$ 6 billion.

3. Coastal protection. Natural barriers like coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds mitigate impacts from major storms and tsunamis.

4. Artisanal fishing opportunities for those who don’t have other options for employment or livelihoods and need to make their sustenance from oceans. There are over 12 million artisanal fishers worldwide.

5. Economies and livelihoods for people along the coasts. Worldwide, an estimated 350 million jobs depend on the ocean.

6. Biodiversity. Already the IUCN Red List categorizes 11.7% of the 8,459 marine species assessed to date as threatened with a high risk of extinction in the wild. The decline or extinction of species threatens the many direct and indirect benefits they provide to people, from being sources of new medicines to maintaining ecosystems in balance.

7. Clean water, free from pollutants and plastic garbage, that people can swim and wash in without putting their health at risk. There are already more than 400 dead zones worldwide, where lack of oxygen prevents many forms of life. These areas cover an area larger than the entire state of Minnesota.

8. A sense of place, including cultural, spiritual and aesthetic benefits. In the U.S. 39% of the population lives in coastal counties; these people are shaped by living by the ocean.

9. Carbon storage. The ocean captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and buries it in sediments to mitigate climate change. Mangroves capture five times as much carbon per acre as tropical rainforests, but these “blue carbon” habitats are being lost at a rate 2–4 times faster.

10. Tourism and recreation. In the U.S., over 40% of people visit the beach each year.




PLASTIC MINEFIELD - A Chinese boy plays in plastic waste. Would you want this for your child, or anyone's child?  Miss Ocean Vietnam is sure to be drawing attention to similar scenes. It's not just happening in the South China Sea, it is happening all over the world. Even reasonably well managed economies, allow waste to get into the ocean. This includes Australia, Europe, Canada and the USA. Richer countries should help poorer countries. This was something agreed recently by the G7.





Nearly every piece of plastic still exists on Earth, regardless of whether it's been recycled, broken down into microscopic bits or discarded in the ocean.

And the world keeps producing more of the material - creating 288 million metric tons of it in 2012. About 4.8 to 12.7 million metric tons of it end up in the oceans in 2010, according to a new estimate published in the journal Science.

That report released Thursday ranks countries that generate the most plastic debris into the oceans, with Asian nations taking 13 out of the top 20 spots.

Using World Bank data on 192 coastal countries, researchers estimated that China, the most populous nation, has the most mismanaged plastic waste per year and also generates the most plastic debris that end up in the ocean at 28%.

Mismanaged waste means the material is littered or not properly disposed of - meaning there isn't a formally managed waste management system.

"The study is not to point fingers at people, it wasn't to focus on the countries," said lead author Jenna Jambeck. "The purpose was to make a global estimate." But the data set Jambeck and the seven co-authors used was only available on a country-by-country level.

"Many of them are middle-income countries with rapidly growing economy," said Jambeck of the University of Georgia. "They have also large coastal populations, they have high levels of mismanaged waste, they have trouble keeping up with infrastructure."

The United States also cracked the top 20 and had a higher rate of waste generation per person at 5.6 pounds per person than China (2.4 pounds).

Low-income countries were less likely to end up on the list, because of less waste, Jambeck said.




Since 1974, the world has undergone a 620% increase in plastic production, according to the researchers. 

"When the waste was natural material, we could leave it and not think about it," Jambeck said. "Even disposing of it in the land was fine, but plastic has increased 650% in the last 40 years.

"It's a wake-up call. We need to look at this and the way we're collecting and containing our waste."

Plastic waste discarded in the ocean raises a number of concerns, scientists say. It may damage ecosystems and marine animals, contaminate our food supply, and lead to chemical leaching.

Estimates of the time it takes to degrade plastic range from hundreds to thousands of years - and because plastic has only been around for 100 years, there hasn't been enough time to observe the process, says Darby Hoover, senior resource specialist at Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group.

Meanwhile, plastic waste keeps on growing with more people and more consumption, the report authors wrote.

"All that consumption is growing, unfortunately the waste management systems around the world are not keeping pace as quickly as the consumption and products - there's a big mismatch," said Doug Woodring, who was not involved in the study but has worked on the issue of plastics waste at the Ocean Recovery Alliance in Hong Kong.






Last year, one study in the journal PLOS estimated that a minimum of 5.25 trillion floating plastic particles weighing 268,940 tons are in the ocean. This estimate included only surface plastics, and not the materials that have sunk.

"A lot of people think of an island of floating garbage, people envision that there are forms of an island you can see on Google Earth - it's much more diffuse than that," Hoover said. " All of our oceans are plastic soups- everywhere you can go."

Environmentalists have criticized the rampant use of plastics in packaging that are only used once and then discarded. The solutions have to be both local and global, Jambeck said.

"It's everybody's responsibility. Of course, don't litter and prioritize using reusables," Hoover said. "At the same time there's a responsibility on companies who produce the products found in oceans, to make sure the materials they produce are recyclable, get recycled and look for ways to improve the infrastructure."


While China topped the list in the report, the country has made some efforts to curb waste. In 2008, China banned free plastic bags and five years later, banned the import of poorly sorted recyclables from other countries including the U.S.

There are some successful models, said Woodring. For example, Taiwan places a surcharge on plastics sold on a company level and it pays for the sorting, capturing, cleaning and recycling.

However, some countries lack infrastructure for waste management and recycling.

Zhoushan Island (Chinese: 舟山岛) is the principal island of the namesake archipelago Zhoushan Islands, administered by Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, the People's Republic of China. Its name means "Boat Mountain", in reference to its shape. It is the province's largest island, and third largest in mainland China (after Hainan and Chongming Islands). The island is the district seats of both Dinghai and Putuo.

At 30° N. 122° E., it lies northwest to southeast, and has a circumference of 170.16 km (105.73 mi), with a maximum length of 44 km (27 mi), and a maximum width of 18 km (11 mi). Its area is 502.65 km2 (including tidal zone). At its closest point, it is 9.1 kilometres from the Chinese mainland. The tallest point is 503.6 metres.

The island has varied range of landscape, with hill and dale, as well as watered with numerous small streams, of which the most considerable is the Dongjiang (East River), passing into the harbour of Dinghai. There are several hundred ports around the islands, separated into three areas: Dinghai Port Zone, Shen-jia-men Port Zone (
沈家门港区), and Laotangshan Port Zone (老塘山港区). The tourism regions include the regions of Shen-jia-men and Dinghai.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - It's hard to believe that some of the most beautiful seas in the world are also the most polluted - and most disputed. By drawing attention to the problems they are facing, local people will begin to think about their waste and how they dispose of it. Local authorities might then pay more attention to recycling and other ocean cleanup initiatives. Of equal importance is that internationally recognized boundaries are respected by neighboring countries, regardless of size. Disputes should be arbitrated by an international body on application by any party who feels aggrieved.
