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).

Abstract: Genetic stock identification (GSI), an important tool for fisheries management that relies upon the ability to differentiate stocks of interest, can be difficult when populations are closely related.

Reduced disease in black abalone following mass mortality: phage therapy and natural selection.
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.

Genotyping by sequencing resolves shallow population structure to inform conservation of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).

Genotyping by sequencing resolves shallow population structure to inform conservation of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).
Evol Appl. 2014 Mar;7(3):355-69
Authors: Larson WA, Seeb LW, Everett MV, Waples RK, Templin WD, Seeb JE
Abstract
Recent advances in population genomics have made it possible to detect previously unidentified structure, obtain more accurate estimates of demographic parameters, and explore adaptive divergence, potentially revolutionizing the way genetic data are used to manage wild populations.

Secondary contact and changes in coastal habitat availability influence the nonequilibrium population structure of a salmonid (Oncorhynchus keta).
Mol Ecol. 2013 Dec;22(23):5848-60
Authors: Petrou EL, Hauser L, Waples RS, Seeb JE, Templin WD, Gomez-Uchida D, Seeb LW
Abstract
Numerous empirical studies have reported lack of migration-drift equilibrium in wild populations. Determining the causes of nonequilibrium population structure is challenging because different evolutionary processes acting at a variety of spatiotemporal scales can produce similar patterns.

Aquat Toxicol. 2013 Oct 15;142-143:146-63
Authors: Harding LB, Schultz IR, Goetz GW, Luckenbach JA, Young G, Goetz FW, Swanson P
Abstract
Considerable research has been done on the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on reproduction and gene expression in the brain, liver and gonads of teleost fish, but information on impacts to the pituitary gland are still limited despite its central role in regulating reproduction.

Diversity of movements by individual anadromous coastal cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii.

Diversity of movements by individual anadromous coastal cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii.
J Fish Biol. 2013 Nov;83(5):1161-82
Authors: Goetz FA, Baker B, Buehrens T, Quinn TP
Abstract
Wild, downstream-migrating cutthroat trout, Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii, smolts and adults were captured at a weir in Big Beef Creek, Hood Canal, Washington, surgically implanted with acoustic tags and tracked to identify spring and summer movements using stationary receivers in order to test the assumption that the species moves little while in marine waters.

Integrating scientific guidance into marine spatial planning.

Integrating scientific guidance into marine spatial planning.
Proc Biol Sci. 2014;281(1781):20132252
Authors: Rassweiler A, Costello C, Hilborn R, Siegel DA
Abstract
Marine spatial planning (MSP), whereby areas of the ocean are zoned for different uses, has great potential to reduce or eliminate conflicts between competing management goals, but only if strategically applied. The recent literature overwhelmingly agrees that including stakeholders in these planning processes is critical to success; but, given the countless alternative ways even simple spatial regulations can be configured, how likely is it that a stakeholder-driven process will generate plans that deliver on the promise of MSP?

Evolution of age and length at maturation of Alaskan salmon under size-selective harvest.

Evolution of age and length at maturation of Alaskan salmon under size-selective harvest.
Evol Appl. 2014 Feb;7(2):313-22
Authors: Kendall NW, Dieckmann U, Heino M, Punt AE, Quinn TP
Abstract
Spatial and temporal trends and variation in life-history traits, including age and length at maturation, can be influenced by environmental and anthropogenic processes, including size-selective exploitation. Spawning adults in many wild Alaskan sockeye salmon populations have become shorter at a given age over the past half-century, but their age composition has not changed.
