What’s a Striped Bass Worth?

Every year, thousands of anglers travel to Southern reservoirs hoping to land a selfie-worthy enormous Striped Bass. But is the cost of stocking Striped Bass justified, especially when there are other species to fish for in these reservoirs that don’t require stocking? In a recent article in the North American Journal of Fisheries Management, scientists.. read more →

More than Mucus: The Hidden World of the Fish Microbiota

More than Mucus: The Hidden World of the Fish Microbiota By Andrea M. Larsen and Cova R. Arias All living organisms maintain a diverse community of microbes that live in association with mucus-covered surfaces including the digestive, respiratory, and urogenital tracts. These microbial communities are known as ‘microbiota’. We grow up viewing microbes as disease-causing.. read more →

Flood Effects on Road–Stream Crossing Infrastructure: Economic and Ecological Benefits of Stream Simulation Designs

Abstract: Stream simulation design is a geomorphic, engineering, and ecologically based approach to designing road–stream crossings that creates a natural and dynamic channel through the crossing structure similar in dimensions and characteristics to the adjacent natural channel, allowing for unimpeded passage of aquatic organisms, debris, and water during various flow conditions, including floods. A retrospective.. read more →

Little Chubs Migrate, Too

When you think of migrating fish, usually silvery salmon gracefully leaping up waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest come to mind. In fact, many freshwater fish migrate in order to spawn, even the small minnows and chubs of the large, muddy rivers of the Great Plains. These large rivers are now  interrupted by numerous dams, diversion.. read more →

How Do Fish Catch a Virus? They Eat It

Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) is just as unpleasant as it sounds for fish, leading to considerable losses of fish both in the wild and at some European fish farms.  Unfortunately, this disease has recently spread to the Great Lakes region but scientists are still unsure how it is transmitted. In a recent paper in.. read more →

Infectious Diseases of Fishes in the Salish Sea

Infectious Diseases of Fishes in the Salish Sea Paul Hershberger, Linda Rhodes, Gael Kurath, and James Winton ABSTRACT: As in marine regions throughout other areas of the world, fishes in the Salish Sea serve as hosts for many pathogens, including nematodes, trematodes, protozoans, protists, bacteria, viruses, and crustaceans. Here, we review some of the better-documented infectious.. read more →
