  • Fishing boat wastewater shown to be potentially harmful

    Wastewater emptied from commercial fishing boats is an overlooked source of marine pollution, a new US study shows. The researchers suggest that this type of pollution should be given further consideration when assessing the overall environmental impact of fishing, as it may pose a risk to human health and marine life. Life-cycle assessments that analyse the environmental impacts of ...

  • Much-in-demand common sole can now be reproduced all year round

    Common sole in the North Sea only spawns in April and May. Because the next generation of this much-in-demand fish cannot be reproduced well in captivity, it cannot be raised profitably in fish farms. However, researchers at IMARES Wageningen UR managed to select the conditions for farm-raised sole in such a way that the fish started reproducing even outside the season. By selecting the right ...

  • Fish farming finds its way to land-locked Midwest

     The latest of five generations who have worked the same ground in northeastern Nebraska, 52-year-old Scott Garwood, isn't growing corn or cattle - it's fish. Specifically, thousands of an Australian freshwater species called barramundi - often dubbed Asian sea bass because of its similar sweet, white flaky flesh - in large tanks inside a warehouse. With global consumption of seafood ...

  • Herring organs damaged by acidified seawater

    Ocean acidification could damage the organs of Atlantic herring, as well as slow their growth and development, recent experiments show. It adds to the list of pressures currently threatening this commercially important species, including over-fishing and marine pollution.

  • Salmon Migrate by Truck during California Drought

     In drought-stricken California, young Chinook salmon are hitting the road, not the river, to get to the Pacific Ocean. Millions of six-month-old smolts are hitching rides in tanker trucks because California's historic drought has depleted rivers and streams, making the annual migration to the ocean too dangerous for juvenile salmon. "The drought conditions have caused lower flows in the ...

  • Hormones in wastewater disrupt fish reproduction over generations

    Synthetic oestrogens in wastewater from contraceptive pills can have effects on fish reproduction and survival that worsen over several generations, new research has found. The study suggests that some fish populations may not be able to recover from levels of oestrogen pollution found in many freshwater environments. Freshwater ecosystems are increasingly under threat from both climate change ...
