Fishes Out of Water: Biology and Ecology of Mudskippers

Fishes Out of Water: Biology and Ecology of Mudskippers

Zeehan Jaafar, Edward O. Murdy
June 27, 2017

Mudskippers are amphibious fishes native to the Indo-West Pacific and tropical western Africa. Unlike most fishes, mudskippers emerse to forage, find mates, and defend territories. Adaptations to their morphology, physiology and behavior enable mudskippers to accommodate both aquatic and...

Acoustic Fish Reconnaissance

Acoustic Fish Reconnaissance

I.L. Kalikhman, K. I. Yudanov
March 21, 2006

Until now, there has not been any work that systematically presents the subject of acoustic fish reconnaissance, details all major aspects of applying acoustic equipment in commercial fish reconnaissance, and offers sufficient analysis of the effectiveness of fish-finding techniques. Acoustic Fish...

Coastal Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans

Coastal Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans

Carl J. Sindermann
December 20, 2005

In 1996, after more than a decade of researching the effects of over-population and the consequent pollution of the greater metropolitan New York City area, Carl Sindermann published his observations and conclusions in Ocean Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans, a mostly technical...

Restoration of Aquatic Systems

Restoration of Aquatic Systems

Robert J. Livingston
July 11, 2005

Simplistic thinking would have us believe that by eliminating the loading of a given pollutant, an aquatic system will revert to its previous pristine state. This premise is without scientific verification. Besides the fact that typically very little documentation exists defining what exactly that...

Estuarine Indicators

Estuarine Indicators

Stephen A. Bortone
December 28, 2004

Acknowledging the present inability to determine objectively the status and trends among estuarine ecosystems, the environmental research community has recently stepped up efforts to develop and evaluate meaningful estuarine indicators. This goal requires the effort of researchers from a broad...

Estuarine Research, Monitoring, and Resource Protection

Estuarine Research, Monitoring, and Resource Protection

Michael J. Kennish
September 25, 2003

The ongoing growth of human populations within US coastal regions continues to increase habitat loss, eutrophication, organic loading, overfishing, and other anthropogenic stressors in estuarine waters. The National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) is a federally funded initiative that...
