Pollution BarentsPortal - a comprehensive description and evaluation of the environmental status of the Barents Sea ecosystem, including human activities and impact in the area, using relevant scientific and monitoring knowledge from Norwegian, Russian and other sources. The status comprise climate change, fishery activities, marine pollution, oil and gas activity, shipping, marine resource management, and environmental management. Further more, a detail and updated description and analyse of marin biology and ecology, including red list species, biodiversity, end the main species groups as whales, seals, polar bear, whalerus, phytoplankton and zooplankton as copepods as calanus species, bottom communities, marine bacteria, fish fauna as the key species capelin, northeast atlantic cod and atlantic herring. In addition there are a detail description of environmental factors as sea ice, hydrographical factors as temperature and salinity and current mainly drives by the Gulf Stream or north atlantic drift. The report is sponsored by the russian-norwegian commission on environmental protection and the norwegian-russian fishery commission, ministry of environment and Ministry of natural resources and ecology in the russian federation. http://www.barentsportal.com/barentsportal09/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=73&layout=blog&Itemid=169&lang=en Thu, 31 Jul 2014 05:21:12 +0000 Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management en-gb Current management http://www.barentsportal.com/barentsportal09/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=319%3Acurrent-management&catid=73%3Apollution&Itemid=169&lang=en http://www.barentsportal.com/barentsportal09/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=319%3Acurrent-management&catid=73%3Apollution&Itemid=169&lang=en oystein.overrein@npolar.no (C.

Photo NPLong- range transport of pollutants, especially of  POPs, radionuclides and certain metals, is currently the most important pollutant-related pressures on the Barents Sea. This is also the main source for accumulation of POPs in arctic top predators and the main reason that environmental goals are not met (AMAP 2009, see chapter Current and expected state of the ecosystem - Some aspects of possible long-term future changes in the ecosystem). In order to maintain the Barents Sea as a clean and rich sea in the future, knowledge of  transport routes, changes in transport routes due to e.g climatic changes and regulations of use of new chemicals is important.

Significant national and international actions have been undertaken to reduce the risks of radioactive contamination in this region, but still much remains to be done. Presently, priority areas are the removal of radioactive sources from radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs), safe decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear submarines and rehabilitation of facilities used as temporary storage for radioactive material.

In addition, the absorption is faster in colder water. The Ocean acidification may potentially have huge effects on the ecosystem Acidification will negatively affect phytoplankton (coccolithophores), corals, molluscs, echinoderms and crustaceans. Recent research also indicates that eggs and larvae of certain fish species may be endangered.
