Comparing Element Content in Small Pelagic Fish Species from Different Fishing Grounds in the Central-East Atlantic Ocean. Risk Assessment
Toxic metal and trace element levels in the ocean are increasing heterogeneously in the world, which is why it is important to assess their concentrations in organisms of fishing interest. The study
Factors influencing the dynamics of a collapsed blue swimmer crab (Portunus armatus) population and its lack of recovery
Abstract Identification of key drivers of population dynamics and prediction of rates of population recovery following stock decline are crucial aspects of fisheries management. The abundance of a
Shifting Baselines to Thresholds: Reframing Exploitation in the Marine Environment
Current research on anthropogenic impacts on marine ecosystems often relies on the concept of a “baseline,” which aims to describe ecosystems prior to human contact. Recent research is increasingly
Analysis of optimal harvesting of a predator-prey model with Holling type IV functional response
Abstract This paper investigates a series of harvesting problems of a harvested predator-prey system with Holling type IV functional response. The bionomic equilibrium, the maximum sustainable total
Fish should not be in isolation: Calculating maximum sustainable yield using an ensemble model
Many jurisdictions have a legal requirement to manage fish stocks to maximum sustainable yield (MSY). Generally, MSY is calculated on a single-species basis, however in reality, the yield of one
Status and Exploitation of 74 Un-Assessed Demersal Fish and Invertebrate Stocks in the Aegean Sea (Greece) Using Abundance and Resilience
Stocks with low market value are rarely included in stock assessments because their catch records are generally lacking, thus adding to the already large number of un-assessed fisheries at a global
The ‘Tragedy of the Commons’ and the Role of the Money Interest Rate
A key concept in ecological economics, environmental economics or green economics is the privatization of natural resources. The argument for privatization is based on the idea that only excludable
Artificial upward trends in Greek marine landings: a case of presentist bias in European fisheries
It is suggested that researchers should refrain from using the combined time-series and that a correction should be applied to the original time series (1970-2015) to account for the entire small-scale coastal fleet.


Estimating Fisheries Reference Points from Catch and Resilience
This study presents a Monte Carlo method (CMSY) for estimating fisheries reference points from catch, resilience and qualitative stock status information on data-limited stocks. It also presents a
Computation And Interpretation Of Biological Statistics Of Fish Populations
This computation and interpretation of biological statistics of fish populations, but end up in harmful downloads so that people cope with some infectious bugs inside their laptop.
Minimizing the impact of fishing
Minimizing the impact of fishing is an explicit goal in international agreements as well as in regional directives and national laws. To assist in practical implementation, three simple rules for
A critique of the balanced harvesting approach to fishing
It is concluded that evolutionary theory, population dynamics theory, ecosystem models with realistic assumptions and settings, and widespread empirical evidence do not support the BH proposal and will hinder the policy changes needed for the rebuilding of ecosystems, healthy fish populations, and sustainable fisheries.
The graceful sigmoid: Johan Hjort's contribution to the theory of rational fishing
During the 1930s, Hjort was the scientific brain behind the construction of the best international database ever assembled on whale fisheries, which recorded not only catches but thewhaling effort, biological information about whales, the details of the whaling fleets, the quantities and values of products and some other economic data, particularly about whale oil.

Status and Solutions for the World’s Unassessed Fisheries
It is found that small unass assessed fisheries are in substantially worse condition than assessed fisheries, but that large unassessed fisheries may be performing nearly as well as their assessed counterparts.
The hesitant emergence of maximum sustainable yield (MSY) in fisheries policies in Europe
The dismal record of fisheries management worldwide is often blamed on managers' and scientists' bigoted pursuit of the flawed Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) objective. This paper aims at clarifying
