Request Advisory The rising number of motor powered boats and water sports and growing demand rising from a strong global economy is expected to boost the demand for marine outboard engines through the forecast period. As marine outboard engines provide users with both thrust and maneuverability, they are being increasingly being preferred for watercrafts of all types. The rise of jobs in the boating industry and gradually reducing oil prices are also expected to support the marine outboard engines market in the near future.
For instance, although seawater contains about 2. Microbial components[ edit ] Research in by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography sampled water in both pelagic and neritic locations in the Pacific Ocean.
Direct microscopic counts and cultures were used, the direct counts in some cases showing up to 10 times that obtained from cultures.
These differences were attributed to the occurrence of bacteria in aggregates, selective effects of the culture media, and the presence of inactive cells. A marked reduction in bacterial culture numbers was noted below the thermoclinebut not by direct microscopic observation.
Large numbers of spirilli -like forms were seen by microscope but not under cultivation. The disparity in numbers obtained by the two methods is well known in this and other fields.
This revealed a far greater diversity than previously suspected, so that a litre of seawater may hold more than 20, species. Mitchell Sogin from the Marine Biological Laboratory feels that "the number of different kinds of bacteria in the oceans could eclipse five to 10 million.
Most are free-swimming, but some exist as symbionts within other organisms — examples of these being bioluminescent bacteria. Cyanobacteria played an important role in the evolution of ocean processes, enabling the development of stromatolites and oxygen in the atmosphere.
Some bacteria interact with diatomsand form a critical link in the cycling of silicon in the ocean. One anaerobic species, Thiomargarita namibiensisplays an important part in the breakdown of hydrogen sulphide eruptions from diatomaceous sediments off the Namibian coast, and generated by high rates of phytoplankton growth in the Benguela Current upwelling zone, eventually falling to the seafloor.
Bacteria-like Archaea surprised marine microbiologists by their survival and thriving in extreme environments, such as the hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor.
Alkalotolerant marine bacteria such as Pseudomonas and Vibrio spp. Oil spills, and runoff containing human sewage and chemical pollutants have a marked effect on microbial life in the vicinity, as well as harbouring pathogens and toxins affecting all forms of marine life.
The protist dinoflagellates may at certain times undergo population explosions called blooms or red tidesoften after human-caused pollution. The process may produce metabolites known as biotoxins, which move along the ocean food chain, tainting higher-order animal consumers. Pandoravirus salinusa species of very large virus, with a genome much larger than that of any other virus species, was discovered in Like the other very large viruses Mimivirus and MegavirusPandoravirus infects amoebas, but its genome, containing 1.
In researchers from Aberdeen University announced that they were starting a hunt for undiscovered chemicals in organisms that have evolved in deep sea trenches, hoping to find "the next generation" of antibiotics, anticipating an "antibiotic apocalypse" with a dearth of new infection-fighting drugs.
Pathogenic viruses and bacteria occur in such waters, such as Escherichia coliVibrio cholerae the cause of cholerahepatitis Ahepatitis E and polioalong with protozoans causing giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis.
These pathogens are routinely present in the ballast water of large vessels, and are widely spread when the ballast is discharged.HAI TIEN VILLAGE, VIET NAM.

Oil analysis provides information for two important aspects, the condition of the oil being analyzed, and the condition of the equipment involved. MaREI is the marine and renewable energy research, development and innovation centre supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
Analysis: Government Proposal 'Ill-informed' on Maritime Matters but at least we should be clear about what is being done.
