Massive Influx of Pelagic Sargassum spp. on the Coasts of the Mexican Caribbean 2014–2020: Challenges and Opportunities

Since late 2014, the Mexican Caribbean shore has regularly gotten substantial, atypical influxes of pelagic Sargassum spp. To recognize the dynamics of the sargasso increase, we used Landsat 8 images to record the insurance coverage of sargasso in the sea off the Mexican Caribbean shoreline, with an optimum reported in September 2018. Throughout the years, good technique for collection on the coastline and for off-shore collection of sargasso have been established with trial and error, and the Mexican Government and hotel sector have invested countless dollars on removal and off-shore apprehension of sargasso.

Assessment of chromium, lead and mercury in seawater and some fish species from the Gulf of Urabá, Colombian Caribbean: a baseline study

For many years, the Gulf of Urabá has been affected by severe contamination problems as a result of elevated materials hazardous substances that wear away the water community, even our lab has conducted previous studies in hefty steels in fish from this same area. The objective of this study was to review the contents of chromium, lead, and mercury in salt water and fish muscular tissue in three fish types from the Gulf of Urabá that are commercialized and consumed by the population of the municipality of Turbo, utilizing microwave-induced plasma optical discharge spectrometry. Cr and Pb focus in seawater from numerous sampling points were found varied from 0. 025 to 0. 369 mg/L and 0. 012-- 0. 165 mg/L, respectively, while Hg degrees were below detection limit. Sea catfish species exhibited the highest possible content of metals, complied with by stone head catfish and anchovy, it which showed the most affordable contamination by metals.

Vulnerability of Coastal Resort Cities to Mean Sea Level Rise in the Mexican Caribbean

We reviewed the possible economic impacts of raising water level rise along the Mexican Caribbean where there are major spaces in our understanding of the mechanisms managing flooding period and regularity associated to future environmental and financial influences. We identified the negative financial influence of SLR on infrastructure in the biggest metropolitan centers in the state of Quintana Roo that are taken into consideration the biggest tourism "warm places" in the country. The tourism sector in this coastal location injects > 8 billion dollars year ⁻¹ to the Mexican economy.

Microbiological water quality and sources of contamination along the coast of the Department of Atlántico (Caribbean Sea of Colombia). Preliminary results

Microbiological sea water high quality is a public health issue that has significant consequences in the tourism and economy of Colombia. In salt water, total E. coli, E. faecalis and C. perfringens concentrations were found between 16 and 572 cfu/100 mL, 7-- 450 cfu/100 ml and 2-- 125 cfu/100 ml, respectively. Appropriate initiatives need to be dealt with to boost the microbiological high quality of these coastlines by the facility of effective wastewater management programs targeted at improving the performance of the neighborhood treatment plant and the control of illegal sewer pouring onto the coast.

The influence of hurricane risk on tourist destination choice in the Caribbean

Environment modification could have major implications for the global tourism industry if changing environmental problems alter the good looks of holiday destinations. We explore the ramifications that climate-induced variants in Atlantic typhoon task might have for the tourism-dependent Caribbean island of Anguilla. Three hundred travelers finished standard surveys and participated in a choice experiment to establish the influence storm risk has on their danger assumptions and choices pertaining to holiday choices. The hurricane period had been considered by 40 % of respondents when making their holiday choice, and the beaches, climate and serenity of the island were extra vital than reefs reef-based leisure tasks in determining holiday location selection. Choice versions demonstrated that participants were dramatically much less likely to pick holiday choices where storm danger is perceived to boost, and dramatically more probable to choose options that offered financial compensation for raised danger.

Use of coastal economic valuation in decision making in the Caribbean: Enabling conditions and lessons learned

Many pressures emerge from choices that fail to take complete series of environment worths and benefits into account. Economic evaluation can add to better-informed decision making about coastal source usage and advancement. Even more than 100 studies in the Caribbean consist of monetary values of coastal environment goods and solutions. These problems consist of a clear plan question, strategic option of study location, strong stakeholder interaction, efficient communications, access to choice manufacturers, and transparency in reporting results. Our findings suggest that evaluation professionals can and should do even more to ensure that assessment studies notify decision production.
