Drastic tactics to save oceans?
... "A much broader approach to marine management and mitigation options, including manipulating the environment around corals and considering the translocation of reef-building corals, must be evaluated," he said.... Marine conservation options may include: * Using shade to protect corals from the heat stress which leads to coral bleaching and death, albeit at small scales. * Actively assisting biological resilience and adaptation through spatial planning, protective culturing and possibly selective breeding * Maintain or manage ocean chemistry by adding globally abundant base minerals such as carbonates and silicates to the ocean to neutralize acidity, and improve conditions for shell formation in marine creatures * Convert CO2 from land-based waste into dissolved bicarbonates that could be added to the ocean to provide carbon sequestration and enhance alkalinity.
