Marine Mammal Physiology: Requisites for Ocean Living

Marine Mammal Physiology: Requisites for Ocean Living

Michael A. Castellini, Jo-Ann Mellish
December 11, 2015

Suppose you were designing a marine mammal. What would you need to think about to allow it to live in the ocean? How would you keep it warm? What would you design to allow it to dive for very long periods to extreme depths? Where would it find water to drink? How would you minimize the cost of...

Hagfish Biology

Hagfish Biology

Susan L. Edwards, Gregory G. Goss
September 14, 2015

With over 70 species still populating the world’s oceans after approximately 500 million years, hagfishes are essential benthic organisms that play a vital role in understanding the evolutionary origins of vertebrate life and the maintenance of the oceanic ecosystem. Hagfish Biology is a long...

Impacts of Oil Spill Disasters on Marine Habitats and Fisheries in North America

Impacts of Oil Spill Disasters on Marine Habitats and Fisheries in North America

J. Brian Alford, Mark S. Peterson, Christopher C. Green
October 29, 2014

At an increasingly global scale, aquatic scientists are heavily entrenched in understanding the fate of marine ecosystems in the face of human-altered environments. Oil spill disasters, especially large-scale ones like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon tragedy, have left uncertain and indelible marks on...

Interrelationships Between Corals and Fisheries

Interrelationships Between Corals and Fisheries

Stephen A. Bortone, Ph.D.
July 17, 2014

Interrelationships Between Corals and Fisheries is derived from a workshop held by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council in Tampa, Florida in May 2013, where world authorities came together to discuss the current problems in managing tropical fisheries and offered suggestions for future...

The Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume III

The Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume III

Jeanette Wyneken, Kenneth J. Lohmann, John A. Musick
March 25, 2013

Since the first volume of The Biology of Sea Turtles was published in 1997, the field has grown and matured in ways few of the authors would have predicted—particularly in the areas of physiology, behavior, genetics, and health. Volume III presents timely coverage of emerging areas as well as the...

Biology of Sharks and Their Relatives, Second Edition

Biology of Sharks and Their Relatives, Second Edition

Jeffrey C. Carrier, John A. Musick, Michael R. Heithaus
April 09, 2012

Virtually every area of research associated with sharks and their relatives has been strongly impacted by the revolutionary growth in technology. The questions we can now ask are very different than those reported even two decades ago. Modern immunological and genetic techniques, satellite...

Artificial Reefs in Fisheries Management

Artificial Reefs in Fisheries Management

Stephen A. Bortone, Frederico Pereira Brandini, Gianna Fabi, Shinya Otake
May 09, 2011

While artificial reefs may have much to offer, they remain an anecdote in the greater scheme of fisheries management, primarily due to the lack of data specific to validating their use. Based on papers presented at the 9th Conference on Artificial Reefs and Artificial Habitats (CARAH) and also...

Sharks and Their Relatives II: Biodiversity, Adaptive Physiology, and Conservation

Sharks and Their Relatives II: Biodiversity, Adaptive Physiology, and Conservation

Jeffrey C. Carrier, John A. Musick, Michael R. Heithaus
March 09, 2010

Since the award-winning first volume, The Biology of Sharks and Their Relatives, published in 2004, the field has witnessed tremendous developments in research, rapid advances in technology, and the emergence of new investigators beginning to explore issues of biodiversity, distribution, physiology...

Methods in Reproductive Aquaculture: Marine and Freshwater Species

Methods in Reproductive Aquaculture: Marine and Freshwater Species

Elsa Cabrita, Vanesa Robles, Paz Herraez
August 22, 2008

The large amount of information on fish reproduction available is not always readily accessible to all interested parties.

Biology and Management of the World Tarpon and Bonefish Fisheries

Biology and Management of the World Tarpon and Bonefish Fisheries

Jerald S. Ault
October 01, 2007

The core of a multibillion dollar sport fishing industry, tarpon and bonefish, two of the earth’s oldest creatures, are experiencing obvious and precipitous population decline. Experienced anglers in the Florida Keys suggest a drop of approximately 90-95 percent for the bonefish population over the...
