Study of Wisconsin walleye finds recreational fishing contributes to stock declines

University of Wisconsin-Madison

New research shows that when stocks of fish get so low that it becomes a greater challenge to catch them, many anglers step up to the challenge and continue catching fish. This poses a threat to the long-term health of sportfish populations in Wisconsin and in inland recreational fisheries around the world.

Dinosaur-Era Shark Fossil Discovered in Kansas; Researchers Name It Cretodus Houghtonorum

DePaul University

A 91-million-year-old fossil shark newly named Cretodus houghtonorum discovered in Kansas joins a list of large dinosaur-era animals. Preserved in sediments deposited in an ancient ocean called the Western Interior Seaway that covered the middle of North America during the Late Cretaceous period (144 million to 66 million years ago), Cretodus houghtonorum was an impressive shark estimated to be nearly 17 feet or slightly more than 5 meters long based on a new study appearing in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

UNH Researchers Find Climate Change and Turf Seaweed Causing “Patchy” Seascape

University of New Hampshire

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire find that environmental developments caused by climate change are contributing to the transformation of the seafloor to a lower, more patchy seascape dominated by shrub-like seaweed which could impact species habitats and the structure of the food web.

Breaking the (SeaFood) Chain

California State University (CSU) Chancellor's Office

If you want to understand what happens when seawater becomes more acidic, ask an oyster farmer. Specifically, talk to one in the Pacific Northwest. Researchers still aren't sure how ocean acidification (OA) affects ocean water exactly, but oyster larvae in Washington State are already dying by the billions. Over the next 50 years, OA is predicted to reduce U.

A study warns about the ecological impact caused by sediment accumulation in river courses

Universitat de Barcelona

Insects, crustaceans and other water macroinvertebrates are more affected by the effect of sediment accumulation in river courses than the excess of nitrate in water environments, according to a study published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Unless Warming is Slowed, Emperor Penguins will be Marching Towards Extinction

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Emperor penguins are some of the most striking and charismatic animals on Earth, but a new study from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has found that a warming climate may render them extinct by the end of this century. The study, which was part of an international collaboration between scientists, published Nov. 7, 2019, in the journal Global Change Biology.
