Clean-up devices that collect waste from the ocean surface won't solve the plastic pollution problem, a new study shows.
Global warming will modify the distribution and abundance of fish worldwide, with effects on the structure and dynamics of food networks. However, making precise predictions on the consequences of this global phenomenon is hard without having a wide historical perspective.
Steelhead trout stirring up the sediment of the river bed were detected by seismic sensors. Researchers led by Michael Dietze of the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam have used geophones to analyze the trout's nest-building process in detail. The study was published in the journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms.
Summit Lake in remote northwest Nevada is home to the only self-sustaining, robust, lake population of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout, North America's largest freshwater native trout species. Research to understand the reasons why this population continues to thrive, where others have not, will be used to protect the fish and its habitat - as well as to apply the knowledge to help restore other Nevada lakes that once had bountiful numbers of the iconic fish that historically reached 60 pounds.
A massive global study of the world's reefs has found sharks are 'functionally extinct' on nearly one in five of the reefs surveyed.
Microplastics have been found in the guts of sharks that live near the seabed off the UK coast.
Ground-breaking study reveals the largest known case of illegal fishing perpetrated by vessels originating from one country operating in another nation's waters. More than 900 vessels originating from China in 2017, and 700 in 2018, likely violated U.N. sanctions by fishing in North Korean waters. Squid poaching worth over US $440 million. Satellite technologies used to detect the vessels, known as the dark fleet as they do not appear in public monitoring systems.
The first-ever global study of long-term trends in the population biomass of exploited marine fish and invertebrates for all coastal areas on the planet.
Laboratory study: AWI researchers gave young European see bass feed laced with microplastic for months, but found virtually no microplastic particles in the fish fillets.
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have identified a quicker and less expensive way to count sperm in lobsters that could help scientists looking at any animal better understand mating, a key aspect of species survival.
