Global Seabird Response to Forage Fish Depletion—One-Third for the Birds
One-third of maximum fish biomass must be available for seabirds to sustain high breeding success. Determining the form of key predator-prey relationships is critical for understanding marineExpand

Fluctuations in European eel (Anguilla anguilla) recruitment resulting from environmental changes in the Sargasso Sea
European eel decline is now widely observed and involves a large number of factors such as overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, dam construction, river obstruction, parasitism and environmentalExpand

Impact of climate on eel populations of the Northern Hemisphere
Glass eel abundances are declining worldwide. This has mostly been attributed to direct impacts of human activities such as overfishing or habitat loss and degradation, whilst the potential influenceExpand

Eating up the world’s food web and the human trophic level
Significance Here we combine ecological theory, demography, and socio-economics to calculate the human trophic level (HTL) and position humans in the context of the food web. Trophic levels are aExpand

Global marine primary production constrains fisheries catches.
Primary production must constrain the amount of fish and invertebrates available to expanding fisheries; however the degree of limitation has only been demonstrated at regional scales to date. HereExpand

A century of research on the larval distributions of the Atlantic eels: a re‐examination of the data
The spawning areas of the Atlantic freshwater eels were discovered about a century ago by the Danish scientist Johannes Schmidt who after years of searching found newly hatched larvae of the EuropeanExpand

Estimates of the mortality and the duration of the trans-Atlantic migration of European eel Anguilla anguilla leptocephali using a particle tracking model.
Using Lagrangian simulations, based on circulation models over three different hydroclimatic periods in the last 45 years in the North Atlantic Ocean, the trans-Atlantic migration of the European eelExpand

Rapid changes in growth, condition, size and age of small pelagic fish in the Mediterranean
Abstract Since 2007, the ecosystem of the Gulf of Lions has shifted to a different regime, characterised by a low anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) and sardine (Sardina pilchardus) biomass and aExpand
