Assessment of permanent magnets and electropositive metals to reduce the line-based capture of Galapagos sharks, Carcharhinus galapagensis
Although the results showed that social interactions between sharks outweighed individual responses to depredation-mitigation devices, magnetic deterrents have high potential for reducing shark bycatch for species that occur in lower densities, or which interact less vigorously with conspecifics than Galapagos sharks.
Inhibition of kelp recruitment by turfing algae and consequences for an Australian kelp community
The results showed that the presence of a natural kelp canopy and/or turfing algae inhibited the recruitment of kelps, but some lingering influence of turf seems to affect the substratum in clearings such that kelp cannot recruit to such areas.
Epidemiology of National Football League Training Camp Injuries from 1998 to 2007
Background Football is one of the leading causes of athletic-related injuries. Injury rates and patterns of the training camp period of the National Football League are unknown. Hypothesis Injury

    Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries
  • 1 June 1995
Research into bycatch in Australia has concentrated on attempts to describe and quantify the highly variable but very large quantities and diversities of bycatches from prawn trawling, showing the great potential that more selective trawl gears have for alleviating the chief problems concerning demersal trawl bycatch.
A third assessment of global marine fisheries discards
This third update of FAO’s global discard estimate adopted the ‘fishery-by-fishery’ approach employed in the second discards assessment published in 2005. The update included publicly available
Physical disturbances in an Australian kelp
Physical disturbances leading to clearances of kelp canopies were investigated for their effects on understorey species. First, frequencies and types of natural dsturbances in a kelp forest were
An experimental approach to the study of factors affecting algal colonization in a sublittoral kelp forest
Controls for the use of settlement plates showed that thick settlement plates led to an over-estimation of initial algal growth compared with the growth on natural patches of substratum, and preliminary results indicate that the Tolerance model of succession may be applicable.
Geographic consistencies of effects of experimental physical disturbance on understorey species in sublittoral kelp forests in central New South Wales
Experimental physical disturbances on the assemblages of understorey species living in sublittoral kelp forests in central New South Wales were examined across several spatial and temporal scales, finding species that were fairly uniform in their responses to disturbance were common, occurring in similar abundances in most places.
By‐catch begone: changes in the philosophy of fishing technology
The recent history of fishing technology is chequered with successfully meeting challenges, giving one confidence that solutions to such issues may eventually be developed.
Causes and methods to estimate cryptic sources of fishing mortality.
To fill a gap in international guidance on best practices, causes and methods for estimating each component of cryptic fishing mortality are described, and considerations for their effective application are identified.
