Can interbreeding of wild and artificially propagated animals be prevented by using broodstock selected for a divergent life history?
Evol Appl. 2012 Nov;5(7):705-19
Authors: Seamons TR, Hauser L, Naish KA, Quinn TP
Abstract
TWO STRATEGIES HAVE BEEN PROPOSED TO AVOID NEGATIVE GENETIC EFFECTS OF ARTIFICIALLY PROPAGATED INDIVIDUALS ON WILD POPULATIONS: (i) integration of wild and captive populations to minimize domestication selection and (ii) segregation of released individuals from the wild population to minimize interbreeding.

Preview of the 2012 Eastern Bering Sea Pollock Stock Assessment

Washington Sea Grant, the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS), and the University of Washington College of the Environment invite you to attend a preview of this year’s assessment for
Eastern Bering Sea (EBS) pollock — the target of one of the world’s largest fisheries. The purpose of this forum is to provide fishery stakeholders and the public the opportunity to learn about the status of the EBS pollock stock and to ask questions and discuss the science underlying the assessment. 

Impacts of ocean acidification on marine seafood.

Impacts of ocean acidification on marine seafood.
Trends Ecol Evol. 2012 Nov 1;
Authors: Branch TA, Dejoseph BM, Ray LJ, Wagner CA
Abstract
Ocean acidification is a series of chemical reactions due to increased CO(2) emissions. The resulting lower pH impairs the senses of reef fishes and reduces their survival, and might similarly impact commercially targeted fishes that produce most of the seafood eaten by humans.
