In the present study we have investigated the population genetic structure of albacore (Thunnus alalunga, Bonnaterre 1788) and assessed the loss of genetic diversity, likely due to overfishing, of albacore population in the North Atlantic Ocean. For this purpose, 1,331 individuals from 26 worldwide locations were analyzed by genotyping 75 novel nuclear(More)
Table 2 was published with an incorrect number of specimens (n) and coefficient of determination (r 2) for the weight conversion factors RWT-GGWT and GGWT-RWT for the East and Mediterranean stock unit. As the correct r 2 is lower than the high coefficient of determination chosen as threshold for using the biometric relationship (r-square ! 0.98), we prefer(More)
The compiled data for this study represents the first Atlantic and Mediterranean-wide effort to pool all available biometric data for Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) with the collaboration of many countries and scientific groups. Biometric relationships were based on an extensive sampling (over 140,000 fish sampled), covering most of the fishing(More)
