The numberless catfish who now course through social media , the ones who devastate lives with sophisticated online masquerades, exist to beguile and disturb.In this way, she is akin to Nev's catfish, Angela, who turned him from a defeated dropout to a man with a purpose.
“This higher ingestion rate for flounder could be due to microplastics accumulating in marine sediments which makes up more of their diet compared to other species, or it could be because the flounder samples were all obtained from the Waitemata Harbour, which is closer to Auckland as a potential microplastic source,” she said.
But the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management delayed the project’s approval to review the cumulative impact of US offshore wind farms, while the company itself pulled its application to choose a different kind of turbine.

NIWA seabird ecologist Dr David Thompson says while seabird tracking research has not been carried out for all albatrosses and large petrels in New Zealand, we know that several species also spend time in Chile and Peru, in Japan and the USA in the north Pacific Ocean, while others visit Namibia and South Africa.
“If you inadequately monitor these fisheries resources, successful and sustainable management cannot take place in a timely manner,” says Dr. Richard Ogutu-Ohwayo, who has studied and worked on Africa’s Great Lakes for over 40 years and is currently the Executive Director of AFLANET, the African Lakes Network.
Opportunities to Improve Fisheries Management through Innovative Technology and Advanced Data Systems.Yet, despite the proliferation of relevant consumer technology, integration of technologically advanced data systems into fisheries management remains the exception rather than the rule.
6, eabd8668 (2021)Once the robots are aware of the positions of their peers, Berlinger and his colleagues can then feed this positional information into simple algorithms to guide the behavior of the seven Bluebots dropped into a tank.
I’m in Wyoming with my friend Brett Prettyman, a communications director for Trout Unlimited, to check out cutthroat fishing and conservation.
This book tells stories of restoration at all scales, “from a small plot between sidewalk and curb to areas large enough to be labeled on a world map.” She spends time with people who, faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, look to nature for solutions.
Denny lays the lifeless fish in the stream steps back and watches the dead drift toward a log jam.Fish biologist Lytle Denny plants salmon carcasses.Denny watches flies feed on the dead fish he just planted.
We essentially recognized that stocking westslope cutthroat and grayling in the Upper Gibbon was assisting their adaptation to climate change, and ensuring a future for native fish in the park for generations to come.”.
And Burke spends time understanding what motivates guides and their clients to destroy family ties and friendships in pursuit of fish.It’s a story in the tradition of Ahab and Santiago, and one of the more enjoyable fishing books I’ve read this year.
The authors, Jason Schooley and Dr. Dennis Scarnecchia, describe it as “a call to action for states to begin managing and monitoring bowfishing.” I also consider it a call for all of us who value native fish, whether as anglers or biodiversity advocates.
But scientists are uncovering a fascinating exception in coral reefs, not unlike the one Nemo called home: Here fish of various species band together, developing social networks exactly to survive and reproduce.
But the southeastern United States has the diversity of freshwater fish species (and other wildlife) to make a trip comparable to saltwater snorkeling.In the Northwest, there is a fish viewing window at Bonneville Dam. Salmon can be watched, from a distance, spawning in a number of rivers.
In Netflix ’s new superhero movie Project Power, the Big Bad is the inventor of a drug called power, which either gives you temporary superpowers or busts your chest open like a dropped water balloon.

“Most of the vessels operating do not use this and are ‘dark,’ meaning they don’t appear in public surveillance systems, and the ones that did broadcast did so relatively infrequently,” says David Kroosdma, director of research and innovation at the international nonprofit Global Fishing Watch and coauthor of the study.

As the authors note in the paper, “Only 0.2% of ingested eggs survived gut passage, yet, given the abundance, diet, and movements of ducks in nature, our results have major implications for biodiversity conservation and invasion dynamics in freshwater ecosystems.”.

It was clear from our visit to the Tapajós communities that they must be at the center of any conservation program, as the river and the resources in it are intimately linked to their identity, economic well-being, and deep social and cultural values.
