Size-selective fishing affects sex ratios and the opportunity for sexual selection in Alaskan sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka

Authors

Abstract
Selective exploitation can cause adverse ecological and evolutionary changes in wild populations and also affect sex ratios but few studies have empirically documented skewed sex ratios in exploited fishes (other than species with extreme sexual size dimorphism, SSD). To investigate the possibility of sex-selective fishing on Alaskan sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka, we assessed sex ratios in fish at two spatial scales: within each of five fishing districts and among 13 breeding populations in one of these districts.

Reproductive success of captively bred and naturally spawned Chinook salmon colonizing newly accessible habitat.

Reproductive success of captively bred and naturally spawned Chinook salmon colonizing newly accessible habitat.
Evol Appl. 2013 Feb;6(2):165-79
Authors: Anderson JH, Faulds PL, Atlas WI, Quinn TP
Abstract
Captively reared animals can provide an immediate demographic boost in reintroduction programs, but may also reduce the fitness of colonizing populations. Construction of a fish passage facility at Landsburg Diversion Dam on the Cedar River, WA, USA, provided a unique opportunity to explore this trade-off.

Abstract
An in vitro system was used to analyze the effects of sex steroids on the development of primary (late perinucleolar stage) and early secondary, previtellogenic (early cortical alveolus stage) ovarian follicles of coho salmon cultured for up to 21 days.

National Symposium Will Discuss the Future of Working Waterfronts

U.S. waterfronts account for over 6.75 million jobs, $284 billion in wages, and $645 billion in income. Yet across the United States, this valuable real estate is getting squeezed as increasing coastal populations generate conflicts over access to and uses of waterfronts. This March 25-28, Tacoma, Wash., will be the meeting site for coastal communities seeking a shared vision for the future of working waterfronts.

Effects of management tactics on meeting conservation objectives for Western north american groundfish fisheries.

Effects of management tactics on meeting conservation objectives for Western north american groundfish fisheries.
PLoS One. 2013;8(2):e56684
Authors: Melnychuk MC, Banobi JA, Hilborn R
Abstract
There is considerable variability in the status of fish populations around the world and a poor understanding of how specific management characteristics affect populations. Overfishing is a major problem in many fisheries, but in some regions the recent tendency has been to exploit stocks at levels their maximum sustainable yield.
