Overfishing Leaves Fisherman Scraping The Bottom Of The Barrel In The English Channel
2014-07-14 03:07:45

University of Plymouth Research reveals practice of 'fishing down the food-web' Decades of overfishing in the English Channel has resulted in the removal of many top predators from the sea and left fishermen 'scraping the barrel' for increasing amounts of shellfish to make up their catch. Sharks, rays, cod, haddock and many other species at the head of the food chain are at historic lows with many removed from the area completely. These are some of the findings of a study led by...

Changes In Prey Available To Atlantic Cod Alter Its Distribution, Affect Success Of The Fishery
2014-06-26 03:25:10

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...

University College London London's international fish trade can be traced back 800 years to the medieval period, according to new research published today in the journal Antiquity. The research, led by archaeologists from UCL, Cambridge and UCLan, provides new insight into the medieval fish trade and the globalisation of London's food supply. Archaeologists analysed data from nearly 3,000 cod bones found in 95 different excavations in and around London. They identified a sudden...

Where Did All The Codfish Go?
2014-02-27 13:44:10

University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa The mega-decline in cod and other fisheries across the North Atlantic Ocean threatens the livelihood of fishermen and communities in New England and Atlantic Canada. One suspect in the disappearance of cod and other groundfish is the food source for their young: a planktonic copepod crustacean, no larger than a grain of rice. Recent changes in local copepod populations have co-occurred with declines in fisheries elsewhere, such as the collapse of the cod...

Fate Of Fish Stocks In The Baltic Sea Determined By Salt Stratification
2014-02-19 15:39:07

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel Why management strategies must take into account regional conditions In the Baltic Sea, two cod stocks evolve independently. Also the juveniles of two economically important flatfish species, flounder and plaice, live there within limited space. This is possible due to the irregular distribution of water masses of different salinity in this inland sea. Scientists of GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Institute of...

For decades researchers have recorded sounds from whales and other marine mammals, using a variety of methods including passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) to better understand how these animals use sound to interact with each other and with the environment. Now, for the first time, researchers report using this technology to record spawning cod in the wild. Acoustic behavior in cod has been of interest for several decades, but few studies have observed their use of sound as part of...

The escolar (Lepidocybium flavobrunneum) is a species of fish found in tropical to temperate waters 650 to 2,900 feet in depth, around the world. It is also known as the snake mackerel, walu and sometime sold as butterfish or white tuna. It has been mislabeled in restaurants and fish markets as white tuna. In studies from 2010 to 2013, it was found that 84 percent of over 114 samples of tuna were actually escolar. However, the studies were conducted with no quality control so the accuracy...
