contaminacionluminicacroppedAccording to the local paper El Nuevo Dia, the secretary of the Natural Resources Department in Puerto Rico, restored the full use of the bio-bay today, August 2, 2014. The bay had suffered diminishing brightness since January this year. The studies conducted by DNRA (by its acronym in Spanish) concluded that the problem was caused by strong currents and waves and lack of rain, typical conditions of winter months in Vieques. The lack of rain prevented the needed nutrients for the dinoflagellates that produce the glow.

 

Se re-establece el uso complete de la Bahía bioluminiscente de Vieques. La secretaria de DRNA, Carmen Guerrero, declaró que las restricciones impuestas a la bahía se eliminan hoy, 2 de agosto de 2014. “Los vigilantes continuarán el control preventivo por el área para asegurar que el uso y disfrute de la bahía sea de acuerdo a las disposiciones de ley, incluyendo a visitantes y concesionarios.” Vea la historia completa aquí http://www.elnuevodia.com/XStatic/endi/template/content.aspx?id=1826392&se=nota
