Deepwater Horizon crude oil impacts the developing hearts of large predatory pelagic fish
TLDR
It is shown that environmentally realistic exposures to crude oil cause specific dose-dependent defects in cardiac function in all three species, with circulatory disruption culminating in pericardial edema and other secondary malformations.
The abundance of cetaceans in California waters. Part I: ship surveys in summer and fall of 1991
California waters. Part I: Ship surveys in summer and fall of 1991 Abstract.-oA ship survey was conducted in summer and fall of 1991 to estimate the abundance of cetaceans in California waters
Acute embryonic or juvenile exposure to Deepwater Horizon crude oil impairs the swimming performance of mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus).
TLDR
It is shown that brief exposure of a water-accommodated fraction of oil from the spill to mahi-mahi as juveniles, or as embryos/larvae that were then raised to juvenile stage, reduces their swimming performance.
Advances in hatchery and grow‐out technology of cobia Rachycentron canadum (Linnaeus)
TLDR
In 2007, improved techniques for cage management were implemented, and both novel designs of submerged cages deployed in exposed areas and traditional gravity cages in protected areas have been used for commercial ongrowing of cobia in the Americas and the Caribbean region.
Growth, Survival, and Feed Conversion Rates of Hatchery‐Reared Mutton Snapper Lutjanus analis Cultured in Floating Net Cages
TLDR
Length-weight data indicate that hatcheryraised, cage-cultured mutton snapper are heavier per unit length than their wild counterparts, and results suggest that L. analis has potential for aquaculture development in net cage systems.
Impacts of Deepwater Horizon crude oil exposure on adult mahi‐mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) swim performance
TLDR
It is demonstrated that acute exposure to a sublethal concentration of the water accommodated fraction of Deepwater Horizon crude oil results in significant swim performance impacts on young adult mahi-mahi, representing the first report of acute sublethal toxicity on adult pelagic fish in the Gulf of Mexico following the spill.
From Fishing to the Sustainable Farming of Carnivorous Marine Finfish
TLDR
Carnivorous marine finfish aquaculture appropriates less ocean primary production than commercial fishing and is generally less demanding of agricultural resources and inputs than terrestrial animal husbandry.
