Fisheries and Climate Change: Legal and Management Implications

Many U.S. marine fisheries are showing the impacts of climate change. Some species are shifting outside their historical range in response to changing ecosystem conditions, especially warming waters, but also to changing habitats and ocean acidification. This new reality poses challenges to our current management regimes as fish and fishermen move, sometimes into areas dedicated to different historical uses or new ventures.

A Web Tool to Estimate Prey Fish Lengths Consumed by Common Freshwater Piscivorous Fishes

A new web tool allows users to estimate the median, mode, and distribution of prey lengths likely ingested by piscivorous individuals or an entire piscivorous population with nothing more than observed, estimated, or hypothesized predator lengths, arguably the most readily available form of fisheries data.

This study quantifies probabilities of accuracy and detectability in radio telemetry as affected by transmitter type, depth, number, and receiver altitude.

Do Acoustic Telemetry Tags Impact Growth, Survival,or Behavior in Age-0 Muskellunge?

Tag retention, healing, survival, relative growth rates, and behavior were evaluated for age-0 Muskellunge Esox masquinongy implanted with JSATs, one of the smallest commercially available acoustic transmitters. No fish lost tags or died due to surgery, wounds healed within 30 days, and tag insertion did not influence growth of tagged, sham, or control Muskellunge after 4 months.
