Introduce biological pest control, a fish that feeds on the plankton and that is eaten by dolphins? solving the problems. Oh and for the record AGAIN AS MY COMMENTS WERE DELETED BY THE PAGE MAKERS!! the reason that farmers use nitrogen compounds to fertilise the land, is because farming rapes the nitrogen from the land. Nitrogen is the amino group of amino acids...which make proteins, which make plants, animals and enzymes, without nitrogen no-body gets any food. Does the river run past...

If theres an increasing amount of nitrogen in the river, its not from people using fertiliser on thier lawn, its from farming, and sewage plants that cant break down the nitrogen in urine. WHERE ARE THE NATURAL PREDATORS THAT FEED ON THE ALGAE? whenever a boom occurs in a species, its usually counteracted by a boom in natural predators? maybe the fish we catch in the river? which the dolphins would also feed on? you want less algae, you need more fish!!! think about it? read up??

nitrogen is a growing compound. type it into google. what the problem is. its being dumped here afterwards. so its not the nitrogen. its the people dumping it. out of season it is depremental to biological things. such as fish and plants..

Introduction of new species is a high gamble see eg the case with the biological pest control the cane toad in Australia. I do not think this is the way to go!!

Its a tough battle but environmentalist types must do what they can to help the dolphins, and manatees survive.

Well you too can experience dolphin pain because the skin-eating fungal infection these dolphins have on their bodies is transferable to humans. One Indian River Lagoon dolphin handler has contracted it. Unfortunately, unlike athlete's foot this infection can not be cured with antifungal creams. Best cure is to surgically remove the skin whereever bubbles and lesions form. Ouch! Fungal infections only happen in nitrogen overloaded waters. Let's stop the nitrogen from lawns during the summer. Thanks for signing.

The bible tells us to practice responsible stewardship of the earth. If people do that for their lawns the dolphins will be healthy and have clean waters once more.

And please Rob, find a way to get the dolphins out of the lagoon before another 100 are gone. Open it up and get them out. Why do they have to be there to begin with.

These are wild dolphins, a population that have chosen to live in Indian River Lagoon (about 150 miles north to south) for thousands of years. The living conditions are different for the population that live outside the lagoon, off shore of the barrier beaches. They probably eat different fish. When life is good for a dolphin why change to a different habitat. Now that life is bad for the Indian River Lagoon dolphins it does not occur to them swim out the cuts into a new foreign ocean...

Now that life is bad for the Indian River Lagoon dolphins it does not occur to them swim out the cuts into a new foreign ocean realm. And the IRL dolphin are our canaries in the coal mine tell us to save this magnificent lagoon, a preferred home for sea turtles, manatees. In fact the greatest diversity of marine life of any ocean or estuary area in North America is in Indian River Lagoon. We must clean up our acts and become savvy ecostewards of the land. I believe what people learn on the shore of this lagoon to save these dolphins will be transferred to how we care for lawns throughout North America so that we can reduce harmful algal blooms and ocean dead zones on all of our shores. Please invite others to join with us in saving these Indian River Lagoon dolphins.

If the dolphins die because of our arrogance,ignorance,and irresponsibility,We are also doomed to succumb by disrupting irreversibly the natural course of events,we are part of the Ecosystem as well as Dolphins are,prevent rather than lament the long term consequences,Thanks,Dr.Rick Junco

Prevent rather than lament by practicing responsible stewardship. People who do discover by not polluting or destroying they save money and experience quality of life improvements.

See Zombie Alligators AND Lake Griffin Fla. It is a food chain thing, secondary to a over abundance of N2, and what survives OR what thrives in it's wake. Regardless, there is to much N2.

Do Zombie Alligators walk upright with their short forearms out straight? if I had alligator boots that were made from dead alligators and the boots moved on their own away from my socks would they be Zombie Alligators?

We had the problem in the 1970's (!) in Lake Geneva with farmers' overuse of nitrates. The nitrates were restricted and the Lake has become healthy again. Can't the USA, 40 years on, not do anything to control the outpouring of farming nitrates in their lakes and coastal waters? SHAME ON YOU!

In the communities around Indian River Lagoon Florida farmer have stopped the nitrates from leaving their fields. American farmers have found by practicing responsible stewardship they have productive farms, save money, and enjoy a better quality of life due to healthier environments more wildlife.
