Reconciling patterns of inter‐ocean molecular variance from four classes of molecular markers in blue marlin (Makaira nigricans)
Different classes of molecular markers occasionally yield discordant views of population structure within a species. Here, we examine the distribution of molecular variance from 14 polymorphic lociExpand

Effects of circle versus J-style hooks on target and non-target species in a pelagic longline fishery
The U.S. Atlantic coastal pelagic longline fishery that targets tunas and swordfish also interacts with a wide range of non-target species including billfishes and sea turtles. Preliminary studiesExpand

Genetic identity of YOY bluefin tuna from the eastern and western Atlantic spawning areas.
We used 320 young-of-the-year (YOY) specimens of the highly migratory and overfished Atlantic bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus, Linnaeus 1758, to evaluate the hypothesis that Atlantic bluefin tunaExpand

An evaluation of pop-up satellite tags for estimating postrelease survival of blue marlin (Makaira nigricans) from a recreational fishery
Blue marlin (Makaira nigricans) repand tropical epipelagic environment, resent an important commercial and and all are vulnerable to the pelagic recreational resource throughout troplongline. Not allExpand

Microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analyses of Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus thynnus) population structure in the Mediterranean Sea
Genetic variation was surveyed at nine microsatellite loci and the mitochondrial control region (868 bp) to test for the presence of genetic stock structure in young‐of‐the‐year Atlantic bluefin tunaExpand

Application of pop-up satellite archival tag technology to estimate postrelease survival of white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus) caught on circle and straight-shank ("J") hooks in the western North
Short-duration (5- or 10- day) deployments of pop-up satellite archival tags were used to estimate survival of white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus) released from the western North Atlantic recreationalExpand

Molecular insights into the population structures of cosmopolitan marine fishes
Many marine fishes are cosmopolitan, occurring in continuous (e.g., circumtropical) or discontinuous (e.g., antitropical) distributions. Little is known of the genetic basis of population structureExpand

'Total evidence' refutes the inclusion of Perkinsus species in the phylum Apicomplexa.
The phylogenetic affinities of the oyster pathogen Perkinsus marinus were investigated with morphology, 18S-like rDNA data and actin sequence data. Morphological investigations revealed thatExpand
