article i nfo Saltwater tournaments for bonefish (Albula spp.) often retain fish in livewells for up to 8 h to allow fish to recover from the physiological disturbances associated with angling. During livewell confinement, oxygen concentrations may fall due to elevated biomass of fish, coupled with low exchange of water. Some anglers use oxygen infusion systems, potentially exposing fish to water that is supersaturated with oxygen. Currently, the effects of differing levels of oxygen on… Expand

Facing the River Gauntlet: Understanding the Effects of Fisheries Capture and Water Temperature on the Physiology of Coho Salmon
TLDR
The results indicate that fishers should minimize handling time for bycatch and maximize oxygen supply during crowding, especially when temperatures are elevated. Expand
Recovery bags reduce post-release impairments in locomotory activity and behavior of bonefish (Albula spp.) following exposure to angling-related stressors☆
TLDR
Retaining bonefish in recovery bags improved swimming abilities during the critical time period where the majority of post-release predation occurs, and one fish that was not placed in the recovery bag was preyed upon during the monitoring period. Expand
Physiological and behavioural consequences of cold shock on bonefish (Albula vulpes) in The Bahamas
TLDR
Bonefish exposed to 14 °C below ambient temperature experienced elevated lactate concentrations and high reflex impairment, with the majority of fish losing equilibrium due to storm events or upwelling have the potential to cause physiological and behavioural impairment that could lead to mortality in this species. Expand
The metabolic and biochemical basis of vulnerability to recreational angling after three generations of angling-induced selection in a teleost fish
TLDR
Angling-induced selection might alter the physiological characteristics of wild large- mouth bass populations, with unknown outcomes for long-term population viability. Expand
Bonefish in South Florida: status, threats and research needs
Bonefish (Albula vulpes) support a world-renowned fishery in South Florida, USA. However, fishing guides and anglers have been reporting significant declines in bonefish angling quality over thatExpand
Consequences of experimental cortisol manipulations on the thermal biology of the checkered puffer (Sphoeroides testudineus) in laboratory and field environments.
TLDR
The results, and particularly the discrepancies between consequences documented in the laboratory and the ecological trends observed in the field, highlight the need to establish the link between laboratory and field data to successfully develop management policies and conservation initiatives with regards to anthropogenic climate change. Expand
The ability of blue crab (Callinectes sapidus, Rathbun 1886) to sustain aerobic metabolism during hypoxia
TLDR
Critical oxygen levels increased in concert with the increases in metabolic rate occurring at 28 °C, in individuals infected with H. perezii, and those recently fed, which is consistent with the oxygen levels shown to influence blue crab behaviors in both field and laboratory settings. Expand
The energetic, physiological, and behavioral response of lemon sharks (Negaprion brevirostris) to simulated longline capture.
TLDR
Preliminary insight into the behavioral and energetic responses of sharks to capture are provided, and have implications for mitigating sub-lethal consequences of capture for sharks as commercial longline bycatch. Expand
The physiological consequences of catch‐and‐release angling: perspectives on experimental design, interpretation, extrapolation and relevance to stakeholders
TLDR
The argument is presented that even if it is difficult to demonstrate strong links to mortality or other fitness measures, let alone population-level impacts of catch-and-release, there remains merit in using physiological tools as objective indicators of fish welfare, which is an increasing concern in recreational fisheries.

The influence of environmental temperature and oxygen concentration on the recovery of largemouth bass from exercise: implications for live–release angling tournaments
TLDR
Several recommendations are made concerning remedial treatments used in livewells (tanks) during angling tournaments when fish are recovering from exercise associated with angling, and in the context of critical oxygen and temperature guidelines for largemouth bass. Expand

TLDR
Results showed that metabolic disturbances (lactate production, hyperglycemia) increased following exercise and exposure to air, and that the magnitude of metabolic disturbance was proportional to the duration of the stressful event. Expand
Effects of recreational angling on the post-release behavior and predation of bonefish (Albula vulpes): The role of equilibrium status at the time of release
TLDR
The findings suggest that post-release mortality of bonefish and potentially other marine fish released in high predator regions could be reduced by ensuring that fish are handled and released without leading to the loss of equilibrium. Expand
Strategies for the capture and transport of bonefish, Albula vulpes, from tidal creeks to a marine research laboratory for long-term holding
TLDR
Successful laboratory acclimation and long-term holding of wild bone¢sh was achieved through an adaptive learning process, whereby a series of strategies and handling techniques were identified to facilitate the acclimations of wild adult bone¢ sh to captivity. Expand
Sub-lethal ammonia toxicity in largemouth bass.
TLDR
Exposure to sub-lethal ambient ammonia concentrations cause physiological disturbances that can impair the recovery of largemouth bass from exercise. Expand
Post-release mortality of bonefish, Albula vulpes, exposed to different handling practices during catch-and-release angling in Eleuthera, The Bahamas
TLDR
Of the 12 fish captured and released, one was preyed upon by two lemon sharks, Negaprion brevirostris (Poey), within the first hour post-release, and this fish was handled roughly, suggesting that the negative impacts of catch-and- release angling that lead to mortality for bonefish likely occur within minutes post- release.

Behavior and mortality of caught-and-released bonefish (Albula spp.) in Bahamian waters with implications for a sustainable recreational fishery
TLDR
The results of this study highlight the benefits of angling and releasing bonefish quickly, minimizing handling and particularly air exposure, and remind anglers that when shark predation threat is high, anglers should avoid releasing bone fish in the immediate area. Expand

Chemical excretions of angled bonefish Albula vulpes and their potential use as predation cues by juvenile lemon sharks Negaprion brevirostris.
TLDR
It appears that products excreted by A. vulpes, particularly ammonia and urea, may provide an olfactory cue for the post-release predation of A. brevirostris during catch-and-release angling events. Expand
