Environmental Protection Agency is a body of external scientists who provide independent advice to the EPA Administrator on scientific and technical issues. The SAB was established in its present form by the Congress in The SAB's principal mission is to review the quality and relevance of the scientific information being used to support Agency decisions, programs and strategies and provide broad strategic advice on scientific and technological issues.
By OCAdmin in Research highlights on [Shiao JC] Through oceanographic surveys for several years, we find that the inshore area of the East China Sea, corresponding to the prohibited zone for trawling, had extremely high nutrient concentrations and low dissolved oxygen.
The diversity index of demersal fish showed significantly negative correlations with nutrient concentrations and positive correlations with bottom-water dissolved oxygen.
The inshore area of the East China Sea was heavily dominated by small-sized fishes, reflecting low survival of most fish species. These findings suggest that eutrophication and subsequent hypoxia could have limited fish population growth in the trawling prohibition area of the East China Sea despite of absence of fishery operations.
Therefore, a multi-pronged fishery management plan that involves both fishing restriction and environmental improvement is urgently needed in the East China Sea. Conceptual linkages between nutrient over-enrichment and demersal fish communities.
Gradients of the shaded area represent the relative extent of the influence of ChangjiangRiver discharge from coastal to offshore areas.
After the completion of the Three Gorges Dam, the area influenced by Changjiang River discharge is reduced as indicated by the white dashed line.Here is a sortable version of the Argo bibliography.

The programme is entitled "Key Processes and Sustainable Mechanisms of Ecosystem Food Production in the Coastal Ocean of China" and will carry out integrated studies on multidisciplinary subjects by focusing on core subjects such as coupling mechanisms of the marine biogeochemical cycles and the end-to-end food web in the China seas.|

Abstract Anoxia and/or hypoxia have been widely observed in estuarine, coastal regions in the past few decades, however, there are limited reports focused on the East China Sea (ECS).

This process may result in oxygen depletion of the water body. One example is the "bloom" or great increase of phytoplankton in a water body as a . As a result, eutrophication and hypoxia have been frequently reported in the East China Sea (Dai et al; Zhu et al; Zhou et al).
