Injuries from non-retention in gillnet fisheries suppress reproductive maturation in escaped fish.
PLoS One. 2013;8(7):e69615
Authors: Baker MR, Swanson P, Young G
Abstract
Exploitation of fisheries resources has unintended consequences, not only in the bycatch and discard of non-target organisms, but also in damage to targeted fish that are injured by gear but not landed (non-retention). Delayed mortality due to non-retention represents lost reproductive potential in exploited stocks, while not contributing to harvest.

Identifying preservation and restoration priority areas for desert fishes in an increasingly invaded world.
Environ Manage. 2013 Mar;51(3):631-41
Authors: Pool TK, Strecker AL, Olden JD
Abstract
A commonly overlooked aspect of conservation planning assessments is that wildlife managers are increasingly focused on habitats that contain non-native species. We examine this management challenge in the Gila River basin (150,730 km(2)), and present a new planning strategy for fish conservation.

Genomic resource development for shellfish of conservation concern.
Mol Ecol Resour. 2013 Mar;13(2):295-305
Authors: Timmins-Schiffman EB, Friedman CS, Metzger DC, White SJ, Roberts SB
Abstract
Effective conservation of threatened species depends on the ability to assess organism physiology and population demography. To develop genomic resources to better understand the dynamics of two ecologically vulnerable species in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, larval transcriptomes were sequenced for the pinto abalone, Haliotis kamtschatkana kamtschatkana, and the Olympia oyster, Ostrea lurida.

Effects of the herbicide imazapyr on juvenile Oregon spotted frogs.
Environ Toxicol Chem. 2013 Jan;32(1):228-35
Authors: Yahnke AE, Grue CE, Hayes MP, Troiano AT
Abstract
Conflict between native amphibians and aquatic weed management in the Pacific Northwest is rarely recognized because most native stillwater-breeding amphibian species move upland during summer, when herbicide application to control weeds in aquatic habitats typically occurs.

Pesticides in urban streams and early life stages of Pacific coho salmon.
Environ Toxicol Chem. 2013 Apr;32(4):920-31
Authors: King KA, Grue CE, Grassley JM, Fisk RJ
Abstract
Pesticides are frequently detected in urban streams and are believed to be primarily the result of homeowner use. Although concentrations in most cases are low (<1 µg/L), there is concern that pesticide inputs threaten efforts to restore and enhance salmon habitat.
