Age and length at maturation have declined in many fish populations and this has been hypothesized to be a genetic change caused by high fishing mortality. Probabilistic Maturation Reaction Norms (PMRNs) have been used as a tool to gain a better understanding of the possible genetic nature of these changes. The demographic and direct methods are two ways to(More)
Mounting evidence now shows that fishing activity modifies both heritable life-history traits and ecological processes in harvested populations. However, ecological and evolutionary changes are intimately linked and can occur on the same time scale, and few studies have investigated their combined effect on fish population dynamics. Here, we contrast two(More)
Myctophids play a key role in the transfer of energy in pelagic food webs, linking zooplankton to higher trophic levels. Data are presented, for the first time for the glacier lanternfish (Benthosema glaciale), on maturity ogives, size-at-maturity and reproductive strategy in terms of ovarian organization and fecundity type in two contrasting environments:(More)
The study of biology and population dynamics of fish species requires the estimation of fecundity in individual fish in many fisheries laboratories. The traditional procedure used by fisheries research is to count manually the oocytes on a subsample of known weight of the ovary, and to measure a few oocytes under a binocular microscope. This process can be(More)

The study of biology and population dynamics of fish species requires the routine estimation of fecundity in individual fish in many fisheries laboratories. The traditional procedure used by fisheries research is to count the oocytes manually on a subsample of known weight of the ovary, and to measure few oocytes under a binocular microscope.

Sequential hermaphroditism is a unique reproductive strategy among teleosts that is displayed mainly in fish species living in the coral reef environment. The reproductive biology of hermaphrodites has long been intriguing; however, very little is known about the molecular pathways underlying their sex change. Here, we provide the first de novo(More)
This study evaluated potential differences in morphology of unextruded larvae from Sebastes mentella and Sebastes norvegicus in Icelandic waters. Fifty-four larvae of each species were measured, and 18 measurements were recorded for each specimen (morphometric, meristic and pigmentation patterns). Pre-extrusion larvae of S. norvegicus were longer than those(More)
Fish populations are often treated as homogeneous units in typical fishery management, thereby tacitly ignoring potential intraspecific variation which can lead to imprecise management rules. However, intraspecific variation in life-history traits is widespread and related to a variety of factors. We investigated the comparative age-based demography of the(More)
