Is a Global Quantitative Assessment of Shark Populations Warranted?

Matias Braccini : E-mail: Matias.Braccini@fish.wa.gov.au A recent global quantitative assessment suggested that “the majority of shark populations will continue to decline under current fishing pressure” (Worm et al. 2013:198) and concluded that global shark mortality needs to be drastically reduced to rebuild populations and restore marine ecosystems with functional top predators. The high exploitation rates inferred... Read More

¿Está garantizada una evaluación cuantitativa global de poblaciones de tiburón?

Matias Braccini  Western Australian Fisheries and Marine Research Laboratories, PO Box 20, North Beach, WA 6920, Australia. E-mail: Matias.Braccini@fish.wa.gov.au Una evaluación cuantitativa global sugiere que la mayor parte de las poblaciones de tiburones continuarán decreciendo bajo la presión actual de pesca, concluyendo que la mortalidad global de tiburones necesita ser drásticamente reducida con el fin...

Est une évaluation quantitative globale des populations de requins justifiée?

Matias Braccini  Western Australian Fisheries and Marine Research Laboratories, PO Box 20, North Beach, WA 6920, Australia. E-mail: Matias.Braccini@fish.wa.gov.au Une évaluation quantitative mondiale récente a suggéré que «la majorité des populations de requins va continuer à décliner sous la pression actuelle de la pêche» et a conclu que la mortalité globale des requins doit être...

Action Cameras: Bringing Aquatic and Fisheries Research into View

Daniel P. Struthers, Andy J. Danylchuk, Alexander D.M. Wilson, and Steven J. Cooke Digital action cameras (ACs) are increasingly being utilized for aquatic research purposes due to their cost effectiveness, versatility, high-resolution imagery, and durability. Here we review the advantages of AC technology in research, with particular emphases on (a) research videography (both in the field... Read More

Prévalence des protocoles de prévention de l’introduction d’espèces aquatiques dans les programmes dédiés à la pêche dans les collèges et universités américaines

Jacob T. Westhoff and Travis A. Kobermann Nous avons étudié le vecteur relativement inexploré du transport et de l’introduction involontaires d’espèces aquatiques non indigènes par les étudiants et les chercheurs universitaires procédant à l’échantillonnage sur le terrain. Nous avons analysé 85 programmes de pêche dans les collèges et universités à travers les États-Unis afin de... Read More

Prevalence of Aquatic Introduced Species Prevention Protocols at U.S. College and University Fisheries Programs

Jacob T. Westhoff and Travis A. Kobermann We investigated the relatively unexplored vector of unintentional transport and introduction of nonnative aquatic species by fisheries students and university researchers conducting field sampling. We surveyed 85 fisheries programs at colleges and universities throughout the United States to determine the prevalence of formal or written protocols used to... Read More

Prevalencia de protocolos de prevención para la introducción de especies en programas universitarios de pesquerías en los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica

Jacob T. Westhoff and Travis A. Kobermann Se investiga el relativamente poco estudiado vector de transporte no intencional de introducción de especies acuáticas foráneas por parte de estudiantes de pesquerías e investigadores de universidades que realizan muestreos en campo. Se sondearon 85 programas de pesquerías en colegios y universidades a lo largo de los EE.UU.... Read More
