Effects of salinity and anatomical hook location on the mortality and physiological response of angled-and-released sand whiting Sillago ciliata.
Three experiments were done with sand whiting Sillago ciliata: the first two assessed the short-term mortality and physiological response of individuals after being mouth hooked and then subjected toExpand

Agronomic selenium biofortification in Triticum durum under Mediterranean conditions: from grain to cooked pasta.
To improve the nutritional value of durum wheat and derived products, two foliar Se fertilisers (sodium selenate and selenite) were tested at four rates (0-10-20-40gha(-1)) in 2010/2011 and 2011/2012Expand

Fate of three Australian teleosts after ingesting conventional and modified stainless- and carbon-steel hooks
angled and allowed to ingest conventional or modified (with notches to reduce wire diameter by � 20%) J-hooks (� 250 mm 2 ) made from three materials (stainless steel and nickel-plated andExpand

Reviewing hook degradation to promote ejection after ingestion by marine fish
A widely recommended strategy for releasing fish that have ingested hooks is to simply cut the line. The utility of this approach is based on the premise that the individual will eventually eject theExpand

Absorption of metals in mulloway (Argyrosomus japonicus) after ingesting nickel-plated carbon-steel hooks.
Previous research has alluded to the potential of metals being absorbed by fish after ingesting fishing hooks, which may have adverse effects on fish health and the organisms that consume them.Expand

Bioaccumulation of PCBs in liver tissue of dusky Carcharhinus obscurus, sandbar C. plumbeus and white Carcharodon carcharias sharks from south-eastern Australian waters.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are ubiquitous pollutants in the marine environment that are known to accumulate in apex predators such as sharks. Liver samples from dusky Carcharhinus obscurus,Expand

Metal and metalloid concentrations in the tissues of dusky Carcharhinus obscurus, sandbar C. plumbeus and white Carcharodon carcharias sharks from south-eastern Australian waters, and the
Shark fisheries have expanded due to increased demand for shark products. As long-lived apex predators, sharks are susceptible to bioaccumulation of metals and metalloids, and biomagnification ofExpand

Resilience of inshore, juvenile snapper Pagrus auratus to angling and release.
This study assessed the mortality of 157 snapper Pagrus auratus (9-29 cm, total length, L(T) ) after being conventionally angled and then released into cages (along with 48 controls) for 4 days offExpand
