Example text

The higher quantities of nutrients are said to generate larger quantities of zooplankton in the zone of divergence than elsewhere. Tuna aggregate here, feeding on the fish that feed on zooplankton. The zone of divergence can be identified as cooler water at the surface. Yellowfin catches north and south of the Line at 140°W have been compared with the temperature distribution in depth. Sometimes they are concentrated on the northern half of the zone of divergence. If the cooler water is spread over a wide area, the tuna do not concentrate.

Conclusion The distribution of the sperm whale fisheries was used to chart the areas of upwelling. In such areas, cool water is brought to the surface and where this happens, plankton quantities are high. Fisheries develop in these regions and fish spawn where there is much food available for the larvae. The fluid mechanisms are three-fold, pure upwelling as in the Benguela current or off the Californian coast, divergence as in the border of the Equatorial counter-current, and advection as across the top of the Costa Rica Dome.

However, there are complicating factors: periodically in the summer time, at Christmas, a surface of warm water floods in from the north. It is called El Nino (the little boy, because it happens at Christmas time) and the fish go below it and the guano birds are deprived of food; they starve or fly south. The fishery stops and rotting plankton and dead fish are deposited on the beaches. The warm surface layer stops the upwelling process and the whole biological unit goes short of food (Posner, 1957; Bjerknes, 1961).
