I just don't get it. Why humans find ways to kill off innocent, beautiful and peaceful animals. Please let's do something about this problem.

This is a simply tragedy of well-intention-ed people. The lawn fertilizer bags are written for all of N America. It says fertilize in the Spring, Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July, Labor Day weekend and in the fall. People wish to maintain their lawns waste time and money during precious weekends to unnecessarily spread at a time of year when waters are most vulnerable for harmful algae blooms. It's a big scam by fert industries because no commercial outfit fertilizes at this time of year.

FRANBENZAN TRAVEL AND TOURS WEST AFRICA GHANA AM CALLEING ON ANYONE WHO WANT TO GO TO TOUR SHOULD COME TO MY TO TOUR HERE IN GHANA I do not charge for money but what happens is that when some one come on tour the places that I will sen u is what we pay for and is not much very little because for example when we go to the crocodile park u have to give let-tel money to buy meat for the crocodile but me after we have finish the tour and u want to go back to your country what very u give me is...

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..

Its better than that. We do not need to pollute the ocean to keep a green lawn. You can have a green lawn by fertilizing early in the spring, well before the blooms, and by using at least 50% slow release nitrogen

We are intelligent and resourceful enough to find a way to acheive a balance in the system, especially when it is an imbalance (ANOTHER ONE) created by humans for humans. Bottom line, the dolphins are suffering the life threatening side effects of nitrogen pollution in their environment. How long will it be before the pollution effects us..or is it already? We are in this chain of life too. It is heartbreaking to see what this problem is killing off the dolphin population, and that we are to blame for it.

Good point. The people of Indian River Lagoon are suffering. The County Commissioner i met with was most receptive to my request to reduce nitrogen pollution not because of the dolphins but because a constituent complained to him about the beach becoming slimy with algae and this ruining the experiences of her grandchildren. Further the local economy is dependent on tourists coming to enjoy the beach and recreate in the lagoon seeing dolphins, manatees and turtles. To see these animals...

To see these animals suffering in a degraded environment is bad for business. I was surprised by how many Canadians signed the petition until locals told me that Canadians are a vital part of the tourist dollars.

We are and I have never seen anything as beautiful as the dolphins in Florida. But as all things go, when the animal population is effected in such a way, they are the first to be. Sad that we let it get that far, and let the animals suffer-but we are all in this chain of life.

these is truth the part of the problem is amazing amount of the farmers land use in the process of production the food derived of synthetic nitrogen that coming of the residual process of production of petro oil is ( urea ). The urea and others derived uses for fertilization the land why because is more cheep but is rely but for the nature and natural process of earth when reining all this syntactic nitrogen is washed and introduce in the biota this change all.

But other solution is...

But other solution is uses the natural fertilize this nitrogen comes front the natural process is not synthetic and easy to degraded.

the real solution is promoted and also capacitation the farmland to use the natural fertilization.

For the Indian River Lagoon ecosystem it is simply too much urea nitrogen. Here the farmers are not applying to much fertilizer, some organic and some industrial N. To do so might burn the crops and is a waste of money if industrial or resources if organic. Our problem is with lawn owners because they do not know better and the industry wishes they use when not needed. I prefer food and farm products organically grown but the dolphins suffer no matter the form of urea nitrogen

there is an edible species of dolphin, but they are a deep sea dolphin. Here is a thought, if the river is so polluted that the fish are dying, why would you want to eat anything caught in it. It was not always that way. Indian River Lagoon used to be a vast resource and provide revenue to the state and locals. Now that it is polluted when the locals have been screaming for years about the decline...then you go and make an inane statement, use your brain, lazy brain.

Dolphins are eaten in Japan. The movie the Cove shows people learning they mistakenly ate dolphin instead of whale because they find more toxic chemicals in their bodies 'cause dolphins eat higher up the food chain. Dolphin on the menu in America refers to a big fish that is also called mahi mahi. It taste like fish, more swordfish or codfish than the meat of a mammal.
