State of the World’s Fisheries
▪ Abstract The total world catch from marine and freshwater wild stocks has peaked and may be slightly declining. There appear to be few significant resources to be developed, and the majority of theExpand
Fisheries-Induced Changes in Growth Rates in Marine Fisheries: Are they Significant?
Fishing provides selective pressure on many fisheries life-history traits, and interest in the impact of size-selective fishing on the evolution of growth rates is long standing. Recent studies, bothExpand
Spawning patterns of commercially important reef fish (Lutjanidae and Serranidae) in the tropical western South Atlantic
Although information on the spawning seasons of commercially important snappers (Lutjanidae) and groupers (Serranidae, subfamily Epinephelinae) is available for the north and central west Atlantic,Expand
Dynamics of Coral Reef Benthic Assemblages of the Abrolhos Bank, Eastern Brazil: Inferences on Natural and Anthropogenic Drivers
The Abrolhos Bank (eastern Brazil) encompasses the largest and richest coral reefs of the South Atlantic. Coral reef benthic assemblages of the region were monitored from 2003 to 2008. Two habitatsExpand
Challenges and Prospects of Fisheries Co-Management under a Marine Extractive Reserve Framework in Northeastern Brazil
In Brazil, Marine Extractive Reserves—MERs (Reservas Extrativistas Marinhas) represent the most significant government-supported effort to protect the common property resources upon which traditionalExpand
Use of riverine through reef habitat systems by dog snapper (Lutjanus jocu) in eastern Brazil
The early life history of Western Atlantic snappers from the Southern hemisphere is largely unknown. Habitat use of different life stages (i.e. size categories) of the dog snapper (Lutjanus jocu) wasExpand
Stock status is a key parameter for evaluating the sustainability of fishery resources and developing corresponding management plans. However, the majority of stocks are not assessed, often as aExpand
Age, growth, reproduction and management of Southwestern Atlantic’s largest and endangered herbivorous reef fish, Scarus trispinosus Valenciennes, 1840
The Brazilian-endemic greenbeack parrotfish, Scarus trispinosus Valenciennes, 1840, is the largest herbivorous reef fish in the South Atlantic. Following the sharp decline of large carnivorous reefExpand
Age, growth parameters and fisheries indices for the lane snapper in the Abrolhos Bank, SW Atlantic
Abstract Otolith-based methods combined with catch lengths were used to produce three simple fishing indicators for assessing stock status of the lane snapper Lutjanus synagris in the Abrolhos Bank,Expand
Water requirements of floodplain rivers and fisheries: existing decision support tools and pathways for development
Fisheries are some of the most valuable natural resources that depend upon natural regimes of river flow for their productivity and full development benefits. Managing rivers to sustain theseExpand
