Acid Rain Threatens Crayfish
Canadian scientists have released a new study on what they call "aquatic osteoporosis" and its drastic effect on declining crayfish populations and aquatic life in the lakes in and around Algonquin Provincial Park.

The researchers found that depleted calcium levels have now driven some crayfish populations to near extinction.

The pH levels are changing in many lakes but the calcium reserves are no longer present in the soil to replenish the lake. Crayfish have a particularly high calcium requirement because of their hard exoskeleton and their extinction could cause a ripple effect with severe consequences on other aquatic species.

New Detection Devices Could Record Microplastic Pollution Levels in Real Time - The scope of the microplastic pollution problem is astonishing. While nations need to slow the rate of plastics entering Earth’s waters, discovering what the density of it is, and where it is, is critical to know especially where such areas overlap with large populations of filter feeding organisms.
