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....
Domestic or Imported? An Assessment of Seafood's Carbon Footprints and Sustainability
Research by Anna K. Farmery et al, University of Tasmania, Australia, has found that the distance seafood is transported is not the main determinant of food sustainability. Despite the increased distance between production and consumption, carbon footprints...
Out of the Frying Pan Into the Air - Emersion Behaviour, Evaporative Heat Loss in Fish
On hot, humid days, you might jump into water to cool down, but for the tiny mangrove rivulus fish, cooling down means jumping out of water, according to a new study from the University of Guelph....
Tilapia Markets in Sub-Saharan Africa
Sub-Saharan Africa presents a solid marketing opportunity for tilapia producers, processers and traders, particularly in view of the dwindling nature of traditional sources of fish, population growth, and rising incomes. However, it is important to first...
Effect of Salting on the Nutritive Value of Catfish
This article by Dr Abdel Raheam H. A. El-Bassir and colleagues from Sudan explores the effects of preserving fish using salt on its nutritional properties....
A Long Look Back at Fishes' Extendable Jaws

Whale Poop Sheds Light on Similarities Between Carnivorous Whales, Herbivorous Terrestrial Mammals
Scientists looking at the fecal material of 12 Baleen whales of three different species found some surprises. While Baleen whales are carnivores, feeding on fish and crustaceans, the microbes found in their guts – the so-called whale microbiome –...
Certified Clarity In Aquaculture - Defined Tiers Could Provide Clearer Framework
Aquaculture certification programs essentially mark milestones on the journey toward more sustainable practices. There is a role for a clearly defined starting point of “minimum acceptable standards,” but it is equally important to create incentive...
Herring: A Guide to Handling and Quality
The aim of this guide from the Irish Sea Fisheries Board (BIM) is to provide practical and contemporary guidelines on the handling and quality of herring, at all stages, from capture to the first point of sale....
