Symposia Countdown: Predicting Fish Impacts Due to Land and Water Use This symposium brings together researchers and analysts to present the most recent findings on mechanisms that link our actions on land and in water to the response of fish populations in the associated water bodies.
Symposia Countdown: Observer and Observer Program Contributions to Fishery Data Collection, Monitoring, and Safety Government agencies deploy fishery observers to collect data from fishing vessels. These data support conservation and management of fisheries, protected species, and ecosystems.
Symposia Countdown: Novel insights from skip spawning in exploited fishes Developing predictive relationships between spawning stock biomass and future fish recruitment has been an important area of research in fisheries management. However, many exploited fishes exhibit poor stock-recruitment relationships, which can make harvest estimations and conservation strategies difficult.
Symposia Countdown: Multispecies modeling (including humans!) for fisheries management Where are we now and where can we go?
Symposia Countdown: Multiple Paths To Hook Advocates On Fish and Aquatic Conservation How and Where Should We Invest Resources?
Symposia Countdown: Moving Beyond Water Quality Indices How Can Macroinvertebrate Data from Fish Habitat Monitoring Programs Inform Food Web Analyses?
Symposia Countdown: Managing Data to Meet Shrinking Budgets In a world of decreasing funding and increasing demands for large temporal and spatial analyses, it is imperative to have good data management plans.
Special Section: Hatcheries and Management of Aquatic Resources (HaMAR) Concurrent with the development of the guidance document (contained in the introduction to the special section and titled “Considerations for Use of Hatcheries and Hatchery-Origin Fish”), some of the HaMAR-related symposium presentations were peer-reviewed and are published in this special section of the journal.
New Book: Managing the Impacts of Human Activities on Fish Habitat Fish species and their habitat are under threat from the impact of overfishing, pollution, and development. This book reviews the science, governance, and practice of assessing and managing these impacts, including use of ecosystem-based approaches.
$225M for Projects – Pre-proposals Due 8 July USDA Now Accepting 2016 RCPP Proposals. Due July 8. Funding is used to increase the restoration and sustainable use of soil, water, wildlife and related natural resources on regional or watershed scales.
