Quando vamos até o fundo do mar, descobrimos que ali jamais poderíamos viver sozinhos.
Então levamos mais alguém.E esta pessoa, chamada de dupla, companheiro ou simplesmente amigo, passa a ser importante para nós.Porque, além de poder salvar nossa vida, passa a compartilhar tudo que vimos e sentimos.E em duplas, passamos a ter equipes, e estas passam a ser cada vez maiores e mais unidas.

E assim entendemos que somos todos velhos amigos mesmo que não nos conheçamos.E esse elo que nos une é maior que todos os outros que já encontramos.E isso faz com que nós mais do que amigos, sejamos irmãos.Faz de nós, mergulhadores.

Dal battles invasive marine life.





Invasive marine organisms carried from port to port in ship ballast water are a serious and costly global problem that Dalhousie University is helping to fight.
“The global impact of aquatic invasive species on things like fishing and tourism and the contamination of intake pipes for drinking water supplies is easily in excess of $10 billion a year,” Marvin de Vries, president of Trojan UV., said Thursday.
His London, Ont., company manufacturers ballast water treatment systems, which battle the problem. He was in Halifax touring the university’s new ballast water treatment system testing facility.
The facility pumps water through ballast water treatment systems and measures whether they meet United Nations International Marine Organization standards, said John Batt, manager of the university’s Aquatron laboratory.
The indoor test facility is capable of replicating large vessel ballast flows. It can pump 1,250 cubic metres of water per hour, which is about five times higher than other test facilities.
“We’re testing the water before it goes in and after it comes out,” Batt said, pointing to a Trojan ballast treatment system being prepared for testing.
“The United Nations IMO has laid down the criteria of what a test has to look like and what the results of that test have to be for them to then get certification to put this (treatment system) on a ship.
“Basically, its a process so that a ship owner knows that he if buys this (system) it meets some level of international approval. In our business, this is pretty much as big as it gets.”
De Vries said his company, which is the Dalhousie test facility’s first private sector client, was attracted by the facility’s ability to replicate large ballast flows and by the university’s marine expertise.
“We’re targeting some of the largest ships on the ocean today and in order to work with ships with those flow rates we have to be able treat very large flows,” he said.
Ballast treatment systems can cost anywhere from a few hundred thousand dollars to several million, depending on their size, de Vries said.
“We plan to test several different products here and we plan to test under a variety of different conditions,” he said. “Our hope is that we’ll be able to use this facility for some time to come.”
Batt said ballast water treatment tests are typically done over 10 to 12 weeks and can cost between $250,000 and $500,000 per test.
“We’re still working out how to make that work,” he said.
Martha Crago, Dalhousie’s vice-president of research, couldn’t put a price tag on the ballast treatment test facility, but said it was part of the university’s $40-million Oceans Excellence Centre development, which is currently under construction.
“The idea is to create a business development plan for the user outside the university user,” she said. “The notional idea is that this will become a facility that industry will be using.”
DeVries said he expect his firm will spend millions testing its ballast water treatment products, which use both ultraviolet decontamination and advanced filters, at the Dalhousie facility.
Nova Scotia hasn’t been immune to the scourge of invasive, non-native marine organisms.
A parasite that decimated oyster beds in Cape Breton several years ago was believed to have been brought there by cargo or cruise ship ballast water.
