Migratory Movements of Pygmy Blue Whales (Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda) between Australia and Indonesia as Revealed by Satellite Telemetry.
PLoS One. 2014;9(4):e93578
Authors: Double MC, Andrews-Goff V, Jenner KC, Jenner MN, Laverick SM, Branch TA, Gales NJ
Abstract
In Australian waters during the austral summer, pygmy blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda) occur predictably in two distinct feeding areas off western and southern Australia.

Predator avoidance during reproduction: diel movements by spawning sockeye salmon between stream and lake habitats.

Predator avoidance during reproduction: diel movements by spawning sockeye salmon between stream and lake habitats.
J Anim Ecol. 2014 Apr 5;
Authors: Bentley KT, Schindler DE, Cline TJ, Armstrong JB, Macias D, Ciepiela LR, Hilborn R
Abstract
1. Daily movements of mobile organisms between habitats in response to changing trade-offs between predation risk and foraging gains are well established; however, less in known about whether similar tactics are used during reproduction, a time period when many organisms are particularly vulnerable to predators.

Pesticides in urban streams and prespawn mortality of Pacific coho salmon.
Arch Environ Contam Toxicol. 2013 Oct;65(3):546-54
Authors: King KA, Grue CE, Grassley JM, Hearsey JW
Abstract
The listing of several runs of Pacific salmon as threatened or endangered and associated federal, state, and local efforts to restore/enhance salmon habitat in the Pacific Northwest make it imperative that the factors associated with these population declines are understood.

ss3sim: An R Package for Fisheries Stock Assessment Simulation with Stock Synthesis.

ss3sim: An R Package for Fisheries Stock Assessment Simulation with Stock Synthesis.
PLoS One. 2014;9(4):e92725
Authors: Anderson SC, Monnahan CC, Johnson KF, Ono K, Valero JL
Abstract
Simulation testing is an important approach to evaluating fishery stock assessment methods. In the last decade, the fisheries stock assessment modeling framework Stock Synthesis (SS3) has become widely used around the world. However, there lacks a generalized and scriptable framework for SS3 simulation testing.

Abalone withering syndrome: distribution, impacts, current diagnostic methods and new findings.

Abalone withering syndrome: distribution, impacts, current diagnostic methods and new findings.
Dis Aquat Organ. 2014 Apr 3;108(3):261-270
Authors: Crosson LM, Wight N, Vanblaricom GR, Kiryu I, Moore JD, Friedman CS
Abstract
Withering syndrome (WS) is a fatal disease of abalone caused by a Rickettsiales-like organism (WS-RLO). The causative agent, ‘Candidatus Xenohaliotis californiensis’, occurs along the eastern Pacific margin of North America in California, USA, and Baja California, Mexico.

Validation of a quantitative PCR assay for detection and quantification of ‘Candidatus Xenohaliotis californiensis’.
Dis Aquat Organ. 2014 Apr 3;108(3):251-9
Authors: Friedman CS, Wight N, Crosson LM, White SJ, Strenge RM
Abstract
Withering syndrome (WS), a serious disease affecting abalone Haliotis spp., is caused by infection from an intracellular Rickettsia-like organism (WS-RLO). Diagnosis of the disease currently relies on a combination of histological examination and molecular methods (in situ hybridization, standard PCR, and sequence analysis).

Front Microbiol. 2014;5:78
Authors: Friedman CS, Wight N, Crosson LM, Vanblaricom GR, Lafferty KD
Abstract
Black abalone, Haliotis cracherodii, populations along the NE Pacific ocean have declined due to the rickettsial disease withering syndrome (WS). Natural recovery on San Nicolas Island (SNI) of Southern California suggested the development of resistance in island populations.
