    London’s River Thames, now home to sharks, seals and sea horses, is no longer ‘biologically dead’
    Amy Cheng


    Some 60 years ago, parts of the River Thames were declared biologically dead. But the famous waterway that cuts through London has been revived and is now home to hundreds of wildlife species, such as sea horses and sharks.

    After decades of cleanup efforts, the River Thames is now home to hundreds of animal species.

    The latest State of the Thames report, released by the Zoological Society of London on Wednesday, found that cleanup efforts over recent decades have brought down levels of chemicals such as phosphorus and conserved salt marshes for birds and fish, making the river “home to myriad wildlife as diverse as London itself.”

    The report also highlighted many challenges the Thames faces, including rising water temperatures and sea levels due to climate change. For instance, summer temperatures in parts of the river have increased an average of 0.19 degrees Celsius (0.34 degrees Fahrenheit) each year since 2007, researchers found. Even slight alterations in seasonal heat may upset the river’s ecosystem and erode living habitats.

    The researchers also found elevated nitrate concentration that threatens water quality. Much of London’s drinking water comes from the river.

    Among modern cities, the Thames hasn’t always been a model for successful environmental protection. It became heavily polluted during the Industrial Revolution as toxic runoffs from tanneries and human waste found their way to the river. The “Great Stink” of 1858, caused in part by human sewage flowing into the Thames, forced the British Parliament to build better wastewater disposal systems.

    But even in 1959, oxygen levels in the Thames had dropped so low that the British Natural History Museum declared it biologically incapable of sustaining marine life. At around this time, authorities began investing in better sewage treatment facilities and better monitoring key environmental indicators, sparking a turnaround.

    The Thames may be free of much toxic waste these days, but it has one of the higher concentrations of microplastics in the world, reportedly ahead of other urban waterways such as the Chicago River and the Danube in Europe, according to a study from British scientists last year.

    These tiny fragments of plastic, mostly broken off from larger pieces of trash, could be ingested by animals, posing “potential physiological and toxicological threats,” the Zoological Society report warned. Rivers carrying plastic waste are the most common way for the pollutant to enter the world’s oceans, which puts even more wildlife in danger.

    As environmental consciousness grows and people are increasingly drawn again to riverside urban living, many other cities in recent decades have tried to clean up their waterways. New York’s picturesque Hudson River was contaminated for decades by a now-banned chemical coolant called PCB that neighboring General Electric plants dumped into its streams. It was only in the early 21st century that the U.S. government ordered the conglomerate to dredge the river.

    Meanwhile, Washington’s Anacostia River recently received a passing grade for the third time in the past four years, with a local environmental organization saying the water is on its way to being “swimmable and fishable.” The District has poured money into projects such as building a $2.7-billion tunnel network to prevent waste from overflowing in the city’s river system.



    So...who wants to join Jiggles to try and catch a PCB/nitrate mud shark?

    I used to do all my fishing in the Irish Sea out of Trearddur Bay on the boat I owned a 1/2 of with my double best mate Eddie.

    Mackerel by the dozen on Jig (coincidentally) lines.



    Them were the days, when men were men and fish were fish.

    Where did you keep the boat? I don't see any marina there.

    the boat is a metaphor for their homosexual relationship.
    The following users say it would be alright if the author of this post didn't die in a fire!

    In Eddie's driveway. we towed that sucker every time we went...the wheels came off the trailer once halfway there.

    ETA: One time (at band camp) we went in the winter...the water was freezing, we backed the boat into the water and then I would stand in the water while Eddie would go and park up the car and trailer. The water was the coldest I'd ever experienced (at least while standing in it)....I'm muttering to myself how long the motherfucker is taking so I could get out of the water and in the boat...I look over the beach and he's fucking stopped and chit chatting to this old motherfucker.

    5 mins later he comes to the boat and I get in it..my legs from my knees down are bright red and I had no feeling in them at all...It took me forever to put my socks and shoes on because they were numb and I guess it messed with my coordination. 30 mins later i still couldn't feel anything and told him I needed to go to the hospital at which he laughed and said something along the lines of "fuck that!"

    About an hour later the feeling returned and the bright redness dissipated.

    They make these things called "ropes" these days that would have allowed you to stand on solid ground and out of the water holding one end of the rope while the other end was tethered to the boat.

    You're not too smart, are you?

    ropes are racist because theyre the symbol of nigger lynchings.

    Hindsight is 100/80 as they say, we had no clue Eddie was going to be chit chatting with the locals instead of coming straight back to the boat.

    ...and as the water is shallow on the beach I'd have needed like 200ft of rope anyway...not your brightest observation gramps.
