We simulated and evaluated multistate capture–recapture models to estimate mortality rates using telemetry data.
Even with long-standing management and extensive science support, North American inland fish and fisheries still face many conservation and management challenges. We used a grand

Nonselective fishing gears extract a great many small marine species, such as seahorses, with limited documentation or assessment of their impacts. Our review analyzed data on seahorse bycatch for five gear-type categories and 22 countries, and emphasizes the importance of evaluating bycatch, even for taxa where reported daily catch rates are low.
Natural resource decision makers are challenged to adapt management to a changing climate while balancing short-term management goals with long-term changes in aquatic systems.
Fisheries and human dimensions literature suggests that climate change influences inland recreational fishers in North America through three major pathways.
In this synthesis, we (1) summarize climate trends that may influence North American inland fish populations and assemblages, (2) compile 31 peer reviewed studies of documented climate change effects on North American inland fish populations and assemblages, and (3) highlight four case studies representing a variety of observed responses ranging from warmwater systems in the southwestern and southeastern United States to coldwater systems along the Pacific Coast and Canadian Shield.
