The U.S. Congress is currently discussing the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act to eliminate shark fin trade at the federal level. This bill was introduced in 2017 and has been proceeding very slowly in Congress because of ...
Interactions Between a Large Marine Protected Area, Pelagic Tuna and Associated Fisheries
The efficacy of large marine protected areas (MPA) for the conservation of mobile pelagic species is widely debated. Here, we quantified spatial and temporal trends in standardized catch per unit effort (CPUE) of two target ...
Offshore distribution of alewife, alosa-pseudoharengus, and blueback herring, alosa-aestivalis, along the Atlantic coast
(National Marine Fisheries Service Scientific Publication Office, 1981)
This study of the offshore distribution of alewife, Alosa pseudoharengus, and blueback herring, A. aestivalis, in the Atlantic Ocean was based on catch data collected over the 16-year period 1963-78 during bottom trawl ...
Calibrating virtual population analysis for fisheries stock assessment
(EDP SCIENCES, 2008-04)
Virtual population analysis (VPA) is often used for assessing freshwater and marine fisheries resources. One important component in VPA is to calibrate abundance estimates with a time series of abundance indices. One of ...
A production modeling approach to the assessment of the horseshoe crab (Limulds polyphemus) population in Delaware Bay
(National Marine Fisheries Service Scientific Publication Office, 2006-04)
Horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus) is harvested commercially, used by the biomedical industry, and provides food for migrating shorebirds, particularly in Delaware Bay. Recently, decreasing crab population trends in this ...
Relationships between Pacific salmon and aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems: implications for ecosystem-based management
Pacific salmon influence temperate terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems through the dispersal of marine-derived nutrients and ecosystem engineering of stream beds when spawning. They also support large fisheries, particularly ...
