  • Samson Pumps match the strict demands of the fishing industry - Case Study

    "Samson pumps are far more robust and reliable than other pumps on the market. This is particularly important for the fishing industry," says Søren Toft Sørensen from Beva Special Svejs ApS, which specialises in the repair and servicing of large fishing vessels "It is a solid product. A really solid product, actually. The more I see what else there is on the pump market, the more ...

  • Reliable pumps are the be-all and end-all - Case Study

    "The introduction of the vacuum system is the biggest positive change that has taken place in the fishing industry in all the years I have been a fisherman," says Roi Magnussen, chief engineer and co-owner of "H265 Asbjørn", which is one of Denmark's largest and most modern fishing vessels When "H265 Asbjørn" was built in 2008 – then under the name of "Gitte Henning" – ...

  • Embryotoxicity of maternally‐transferred methylmercury to fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas)

    Mercury is a ubiquitous environmental contaminant and potent neurotoxin. In aquatic environments, mercury can be transformed into methylmercury (MeHg), which bioaccumulates in aquatic food webs, including fish. MeHg has been shown to transfer from female fish to developing eggs; however, relatively little is known regarding effects of maternally‐transferred MeHg on fish embryos. Here, we ...

  • Maternally transferred dioxin‐like compounds can affect the reproductive success of European eel

    Reported concentrations of dioxin‐like compounds accumulated in the European eel (Anguilla anguilla) were used to perform a risk assessment for eel larval survival, taking into account a modelled amplification of tissue concentrations with a factor of 1.33 during spawning migration. The calculated concentrations of dioxin‐like compounds finally deposited in the eggs were compared to the ...

  • Spatio-temporal variability in the thermal regimes of the Danjiangkou reservoir and its downstream river due to the large water diversion project system in central China

    Understanding water temperature variation in regulated rivers and reservoirs becomes increasingly important as the environment and ecosystem are approaching their thermal limits. In this paper, a multi-model approach is used to quantitatively access the spatio-temporal change in thermal structures of the Danjiangkou reservoir and its downstream river. The area is subject to thermal and ...

  • Stop and Smell the Coral

    Marine protected areas are a popular way to try and combat the massive decline of coral reefs around the world, in part due to overfishing. But, what if, once damaged, the fish and coral you need to make the area healthy again don’t want to move back in? Turns out you might be left with a seaweed protected area. In a study published today in ...

  • The disappearing rivers of Bangladesh

    Bangladesh is a land of rivers, but changing climate has caused a third of the country’s more than 300 large rivers to disappear. The rivers are drying out as a result of barriers built upstream to divert water and protect people from floods that have become more frequent as the weather becomes more ...

  • P‐gp efflux pump inhibition potential of common environmental contaminants determined in vitro

    Across different species, cellular efflux pumps such as P‐glycoprotein (P‐gp, MDR1) serve as a first line of defence by transporting toxic xenobiotics out of the cell. This mechanism is also active in aquatic organisms such as mussels, fish and their larvae. Modulation of this resistance mechanism by chemical agents occurring in the environment could result in either higher or lower internal ...

  • Application of mercury isotopes for tracing trophic transfer and internal distribution of mercury in marine fish feeding experiments

    We performed feeding experiments to investigate mercury (Hg) isotope fractionation during trophic transfer and internal distribution of total Hg (THg) in marine fish upon exposure to natural seafood. Young‐of‐the‐year amberjack (Seriola dumerili) were fed with either blackfin tuna (Thunnus atlanticus) (2647 ng/g THg) or brown shrimp (Farfantepenaeus aztecus) (25.1 ng/g THg) for 80 and 50‐days, ...

  • Elite capture in local fishery management - experiences from post–socialist Albania

    Local governance based on institutions for collective action can help overcome social dilemmas in natural and agricultural resource management. A common path towards local governance is decentralisation, and within this context, a transfer of property rights from central government to local resource users. Yet, despite the successes of many decentralisation policies, the phenomenon of elite ...

  • Old and new knowledge combine to protect Fiji`s fish

    Efforts to protect precious marine biodiversity by combining science and local knowledge are difficult but can work, reports Naomi Antony. Along the coastline of Fiji, threatened fishing communities have been combining the ancient and the new in their fight to conserve precious marine resources. Together with traditions remembered from centuries ago and community approaches ...

  • Let the kids go wild outdoors

    A number of international studies have shown that children in developed nations spend an average of 55 hours a week indoors using electronics. Even though this means that the youth in these countries are techno-savvy, it often results in them spending less and less time outdoors. How do we change this, and get our kids to experience the wonders of nature, develop creativity and learn to ...

  • Freshwater ecosystems

    Freshwater ecosystems in Europe are rich in biodiversity and provide essential ecosystem services to humans Europe's freshwater ecosystems range from rivers, flood plains, lakes and ponds, marshes and peatlands, to man-made water bodies such as canals and reservoirs (EC, 2007a; EC, 2007b). They encompass a broad variety of wetlands. These different systems also interact with groundwater. ...

  • Recovering from overexploitation: the European fisheries of the North Sea

    In the last two decades, the fisheries of the North Sea have experienced substantial declines in the population of a number of commercially harvested species. The fisheries have also experienced the development of considerable overcapacity as a result of ineffective management and subsidies. Management of the fishery is complicated by the existence not only of multiple species and gears, but also ...

  • Qualitative algal analysis from the fish-gut: Tested in the rice fish cropping system

    Abstract: Algae constitute a major proportion of fish food in rice-fish culture system. Study of algal preferences and their availability in the natural environment might be important for developing natural fish feed. Preparation of formulated feeds using under-exploited materials such as algae not only reduces production costs, but also increases procurement accessibility of locally available ...
