Catch composition of deep-sea resources of commercial importance in the Colombian Caribbean
Recent studies in the Colombian Caribbean Sea describe the potential for a new deep-sea crustacean fishery between 200 a 550-m depth. In order to support appropriate management plans for their
Distribution, relative abundance and diversity of deep-sea species at São Pedro and São Paulo Archipelago, Brazil
The goal of the present study is to investigate vertical distribution, relative abundance and diversity of deep-sea species caught using baited traps at Sao Pedro and Sao Paulo Archipelago (SPSPA).
Estructura y distribución de los condrictios de aguas profundas en el Caribe colombiano
Although currently there is no deep-sea fishery in the Colombian Caribbean Sea, however it is important to know the biology and ecology of the deep-sea ichthyofauna in order to identify the impact of
Population structure and distribution of deep-water cardinal fish Epigonus occidentalis (Epigonidae) and Epigonus pandionis (Epigonidae) in the Colombian Caribbean Sea
The spatial distribution patterns of biomass, size structure and morphometric relationships of E. occidentalis and E. pandionis in deep waters of the Colombian Caribbean Sea are described to determine basic life history traits, such as growth, reproduction, recruitment, and mortality.
Fish Diversity And Water Characteristics In The Reju Khal River Estuary, Bangladesh
Hydrobiological characteristics determine the health of an aquatic ecosystem. Reju Khal estuary on the subtropical coasts is among the major estuarine system in Bangladesh. Monitoring the water
Phytoplankton Community Structure and Seasonality in a Tropical Mangrove Estuarine and Coastal Waters, South China Sea
Phytoplankton are the primary producer of the food chain in any aquatic ecosystem, and play a crucial role in maintaining fishery resources. The community structure of phytoplankton in tropical
Status of some fishery resources in a tropical mangrove estuary of Sarawak, Malaysia
The findings suggest that the Sibuti mangrove estuary is productive in terms of diversified fishery resources, which are influenced by the hydrobiological factors.
Behind the Scenes for the Designation of the Corales de Profundidad National Natural Park of Colombia
Deep-water environments make up 64% of the world’s oceans (nearly 202 million km2). In the past, the belief that this environment represented one of the most stable and unproductive ecosystems on the
Seasonal distribution of phytoplankton community in a subtropical estuary of the south-eastern coast of Bangladesh
Phytoplankton populations in the Reju Khal estuary of the south-eastern coast of Bangladesh had strong positive correlations with pH, salinity, and tributaries of the aquatic food chain.


Deep-water fish assemblages in the Mediterranean Sea
Data collected during the DESEAS survey carried out in three areas of the Mediterranean Sea (Balearic Sea, western and eastern Ionian Sea) were used to describe the structure and spatial distribution
Species richness of marine soft sediments
The available evidence suggests that environmental factors such as productivity, temperature, and sediment grain-size diversity play dominant roles in determining patterns of regional-scale species richness and patterns in species turnover, and it is probably the regional scale that primarily determines local species richness.
Deep-water fish assemblages in the central-western Mediterranean (south Sardinian deep-waters)
The deepest bottoms of the central-western Mediterranean Sea shelter an ichthyofauna dominated by small to medium-sized species living in a food-scarce environment in which some large mobile fishes are widespread.
Demersal fish assemblages of Faroe Bank : species composition, distribution, biomass spectrum and diversity
The fish assemblage on the Faroe Bank is mainly boreal, but the occurrence of Arctic as well as Mediterranean species bears witness to the composite nature of the area.
Are deep-sea demersal fish assemblages globally homogenous? Insights from seamounts
Deep-sea fishes have been poorly sampled globally, and overall knowledge of demersal fish distributions and the drivers of community composition and diversity remain limited. Here, we used nine
Deep-sea shrimps Aristaeomorpha foliacea and Pleoticus robustus (Crustacea: Penaeoidea) in the Colombian Caribbean Sea as a new potential fishing resource

This study investigates new fishing areas, exploring the poorly understood deep-sea habitats in the Colombian Caribbean Sea, to determine the potential for a viable deep shrimp fishery, and finds high abundances for giant red shrimp and royal red shrimp, both important commercially.
The Deep-sea Fish Fauna of the Northern Gulf of Mexico
As a part of the Deep Gulf of Mexico Benthos (DGoMB) project, fishes were sampled in May and June 2000. 46 stations were occupied using a 41' semi-balloon otter trawl along transects which ran from
A review of the spatial extent of fishery effects and species vulnerability of the deep-sea demersal fish assemblage of the Porcupine Seabight, Northeast Atlantic Ocean (ICES Subarea VII)
Comparisons of trawls pre-1989 and post-1997 indicate a significant decrease in total abundance of demersal fish down to 2500 m, and detailed analyses of the 15 most-abundant species showed that nine species with depth ranges within the commercial fishing depth have decreased in abundance.
An application of the theory of island ­biogeography to fish speciation on seamounts
Three elements of this theory were tested as an illustration of what could be done, using published data on the diversity of reef-dwelling and benthic fish species found along the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain in the Pacific.
