    Hi Tonmo! This message board looks very interesting! I am looking foward to being a member and learning more.

    A few weeks ago I seem to remember reading an article about ceph biomass exceeding human biomass and that this sudden growth was linked to global warming and excessive fishing. Does anyone recollect reading something along these lines and/or know where I could find a link?

    Thanks!

    Hi!
    :welcome: to TONMO
    The board doesn't just look interesting, it surely is ;)
    Funnily enough that does ring a bell but i can't remember where i read that "fact"... not even sure it was on TONMO for that matter... I'll let the less memory-challenged among us answer that one :lol:

    It's actually based on series of papers published by George Jackson (Dr), of Tasmania. If you shoot me a pm with your email address attached I can forward you pdf's of the actual work.

    I spoke to George about this yesterday; there's not been any recent publication that has sparked the recent flurry of press regarding increased temperatures (global warming) and squid numbers, but the recent interest in this (that you likely refer to) has probably been sparked by the more northern (and unusual) occurence of Humboldt squid (that's received quite a bit of press).

    :welcome: to TONMO I should add, flailing arms, legs and anything else that goes
