Latest Fisheries science Stories
Overfishing threatens many species but a combination of steps could turn that around, two groups long at odds with each other said. Marine ecologists and fisheries management scientists worked together for two years and published their findings Friday in the journal Science. The researchers agreed solutions to overfishing lie not only in management techniques but also in the political will to apply them, even if it initially causes economic disruption, said a release from the U.S.

New Campaign Exposes Million Dollar Effort by Out-of-State Interests to Kill California Ocean Protection Efforts SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) today launched a statewide campaign and Web site (www.somethingsfishyaboutpso.com) that unmasks the "Partnership for Sustainable Oceans" (PSO), an industry front group that is raising more than $1 million from foreign and national fishing equipment manufacturers, boat makers,...
Acoustic tags and numerical river models are two technologies developed by researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that are helping improve salmon passage at the Columbia Basin's hydroelectric dams.
An international oceanographic research expedition to the middle of the South Pacific Gyre â€“ a site that is as far from continents as it is possible to go on Earth's surface â€“ found so few organisms beneath the seafloor that it may be the least inhabited sediment ever explored for evidence of life.
Weak enforcement combined with fishermen facing serious economic hardships are leading to widespread violations of fisheries regulations along the Northeastern United States coast.
Point #1: Warm finger- This region inside the area marked number 1, represents a warm finger of the ocean temperatures. What is occurring is that the warmer air is being pushed faster in this region than the surrounding locations giving us this little finger of warmer temps in that region. Point #2: Warm Eddie- This is a region of warmer temps surrounded on all sides by colder water. Eddies are a closed circulation of water in the ocean that has in this case warmer temps around it. These...
The Peru Current flows from South to North along the western side of South America. This current transports colder air from the south northward towards the equator. This current is responsible for bringing cooler waters off the coast of Peru which is a big reason that they have such high fishing success. However this current can get altered during EL-Nino when the warmer waters of the Pacific are transported west to east and start to replace these colder waters. The Peru current is...
