Northeast Fisheries Science Center: NOAA A shift in the prey available to Atlantic cod in the Gulf of Maine that began nearly a decade ago contributed to the controversy that surrounded the 2011 assessment for this stock. A recent study of how this occurred may help fishery managers, scientists, and the industry understand and resolve apparent conflicts between assessment results and the experiences of the fishing industry. When the dominant prey species of Atlantic cod changed from...

New Population Model Explains Historic Trends, Shows Importance of Ecological Interactions NOAA scientists have developed a population model for Atlantic herring that links herring population trends to the size of the haddock population. The model also provides evidence that egg predation by haddock can cause alternate stable population levels in Georges Bank herring.  These results have significant ecological as well as management implications. In a study published online August 8,...

Scientists say that fish are being threatened by man-made noise pollution. The scientists reviewed the impact of noise made by oil and gas rigs, ships, boats and sonar on fish species around the world. They say that rather than live in a silent world, most fish hear well and sound plays an active part in their lives. The increasing noise pollution may severely affect the distribution of fish, as well as their ability to reproduce, communicate and avoid predators. "People always just...

This species is a silvery fish with unspined fins and a deeply forked caudal fin. The distribution is widely along the California coast from Baja California north to Alaska and the Bering Sea; in Asia the distribution is south to Japan.

The Atlantic herring, Clupea harengus, is the one of the most abundant species of fish on the planet. They can be found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean congregating together in large schools (or swarms). They can grow up to 17.72 in (45 cm) in length and weigh more than 1.1 lb (0.5 kg). They feed on copepods, krill and small fish, and their natural predators are seals, whales, cod and other larger fish. The Atlantic herring fishery has long been an important part of the economy of New...
