Mating systems and the conservation of commercially exploited marine fish

  title={Mating systems and the conservation of commercially exploited marine fish},
  author={Sherrylynn Rowe and Jeffrey A Hutchings},
Unprecedented declines of marine fish have revealed our inability to predict the susceptibility of populations to collapse and their capacity for subsequent recovery. Lack of knowledge about the behaviour and ecology of exploited species has hindered our understanding of how exploitation influences the resistance of marine fish to catastrophic decline and their resilience thereafter. Based on available data, particularly on the Atlantic cod Gadus morhua, we argue that the breeding behaviour of… CONTINUE READING
