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...

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 2013 Alaska pollock Total Allowable Catch (TAC) for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska is 1,387,146 metric tons, 3.8% higher than last year's TAC of 1,335,944 metric tons. Alaska pollock accounts for approximately 30% of all...

Cod Has A Key Role In The Whole Baltic Sea
2012-04-18 10:48:24

A new investigation put in evidence the key role of cod as regulator of the whole Baltic Sea ecosystem. The study shows that when the cod population in the central Baltic increases, it spreads into larger areas and spills over into adjacent marginal systems where it usually does not occur, as for example the Gulf of Riga. On the other hand, when the cod population size in the central Baltic decreases, it concentrates into the southern Baltic Sea and disappears from the other systems where...

Many types of fish have been given the common name Whiting. The fish originally known by that name in English is Merlangius merlangus, in the family Gadidae. In the USA it is known as the English Whiting. In the USA, the name Whiting on its own is often used for various species of Hake, genus Merluccius. In Canada, it is used for the Alaska pollock Theragra chalcogramma. Like the true Whitings, these are all members of the order Gadiformes. In India and Australia, the name Whiting (though...

The Haddock or Offshore Hake is a marine fish distributed on both sides of the North Atlantic. Haddock is a popular food fish, widely fished commercially. The Haddock is easily recognized by a black lateral line running along its white side, not to be confused with Pollock which has the reverse (white line on black side), and a distinctive dark blotch above the pectoral fin, often described as a "thumbprint" or even the "Devil's thumbprint" or "St. Peter's mark". Haddock is most...
