How Fisheries Impact Behavioural Evolution in Atlantic Cod
As seen in other animal species, fish individuals tend to react differently to a new situation. In the case of human harvest, the boldest individuals are more likely to get caught, leaving only the fearful and cautious ones to breed. But does it mean...
Rising Sea Water Temperatures Causing Coral Bleaching in Seca Islands, Panama
One third of all marine species that live in the sea spend at least part of their lives on coral reefs which are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, second only to rainforests. Slow growing coral reefs are worth more than the $billions in...
Functional Feed Additives for a Sustainable Blue Revolution
Aquaculture is the fastest growing industry producing animal protein, with an average annual growth rate of 10 percent during the 1980s and 1990s. For the decade 2012–2022, aquaculture is forecasted to grow between 29 and 50% (FAO 2014). ...
Avoiding the Choke
The European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy has undergone many reforms since its creation. Last year saw the introduction of first phases of one of the most significant reforms – the Landing Obligation. Under this new rule (with a few exceptions)...
The Problem of Overfishing: Can Japan's Attempts to Lower Catch Limits Provide a Solution?
Japan has decided to tighten its rules on overfishing this year. With fishery resources around the country at increasing risk of being depleted, Bonnie Waycott reports for The Fish Site on Japan's attempts to address an increasingly serious global problem....
Resistance to Kudoa thyrsites in Atlantic Salmon
Research by Simon R.M. Jones,Steven Cho, Jimmy Nguyen and Amelia Mahony from the Canadian Pacific Biological Station, has found that Atlantic salmon which have recovered from infection with Kudoa thyrsites showed resistance to reinfection with the parasite,...
Top Tips for Preventing Fish Spoilage During Handlling
Fishing doesn’t just end with capturing the fish. Once the fish is sorted and stored on the boat, it is then taken back to shore where it is either processed, or sold directly. This is a crucial step – improper handling of seafood can result in their...
Researchers Investigate Fascinating Properties of Hagfish Slime
This animal has done everything right. It has been around for 300 million years, outlived the dinosaurs and survived the catastrophic meteorite impact, warm phases and glacial periods.Even today, it continues to populate the sea at depths where it eats...
The Problem of Post-Harvest Losses
Fishing incurs costs from many different aspects – the vessel itself, fuel, fishing equipment, crew, licences, and so forth. Making sure every bit of a catch counts as income is essential – especially where fishers are running on tight margins. ...
Freshwater Fish Supercharge their Ability to See Infrared Light?
Salmon migrating from the open ocean to inland waters do more than swim upstream. To navigate the murkier freshwater streams and reach a spot to spawn, the fish have evolved a means to enhance their ability to see infrared light. Humans lack this evolutionary...
3-D Printed Parts from Some Commercial Devices Toxic to Zebrafish Embryos
The recent boom in 3-D printing has driven innovations in fields as disparate as haute couture and medical implants....
Marine Animals Use New Form of Secret Light Communication
Researchers from the Queensland Brain Institute at The University of Queensland have uncovered a new form of secret light communication used by marine animals....
Tilapia: A Nutritious, Environmentally Friendly Fish
Often dubbed the ‘aquatic chicken’, farmed tilapia is now a staple in many parts of the world. A healthy source of protein, micronutrients and essential fatty acids, tilapia is now the fourth most consumed fish in the US and it is farmed extensively...
Fish Skin Provides Invisibility in Open Ocean
Scientists have solved a longstanding mystery about how some fish seem to disappear from predators in the open waters of the ocean, a discovery that could help materials scientists and military technologists create more effective methods of ocean camouflage....
