Relative contributions of evolutionary and ecological dynamics to body size and life-history changes of herring (Clupea harengus) in the Bothnian Sea 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The role of climate and fisheries on the temporal changes in the Bothnian Bay foodweb
Climate change, eutrophication, and fishing are main pressures associated with changes in the abiotic and biotic environment in several sub-basins of the Baltic Sea. Identifying the nature of such ...
The effect of prey quality and ice conditions on the nutritional status of Baltic gray seals of different age groups
There was a negative correlation between blubber thickness of seals and herring catch size (an index of herring abundance) suggesting that herring quality, not the quantity, is important for the nutritional status of Baltic gray seals. Expand
Experimental evidence of gradual size‐dependent shifts in body size and growth of fish in response to warming
It is found that body growth increased substantially after warming, but the extent depended on body size: Only among small‐bodied perch did growth increase with temperature, and the strength of this response gradually increased over the 24 year warming period. Expand
ICES Stock Annex
Management units of Atlantic herring, Clupea harengus, have traditionally been based on geographic separation in meristic or morphological characteristics or as a result of stocks with differentExpand
Linking consumer physiological status to food-web structure and prey food value in the Baltic Sea
Evidence is found that the physiological status of cod, herring and sprat is influenced by competition, predation, and prey availability; herringand sprat status also by prey size. Expand
A Review Characterizing 25 Ecosystem Challenges to Be Addressed by an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management in Europe
The impacts of fisheries on ocean resources are no longer considered in isolation but should account for broader ecosystem effects. However, ongoing ecosystem-wide changes added to the inherentExpand
Game theory as a conceptual framework for managing insect pests.
Game theory provides a conceptual framework for combining the resistance strategies of the insects and the control strategy of the pest manager into a unified conceptual and modelling framework for resistance management. Expand


Disentangling the effects of size-selective mortality, density, and temperature on length-at-age
The relative importance of size-selective mortality, density-dependent growth, and temperature on growth of a commercial fish population was investigated using an integrated statistical analysis. T...
Long-term changes in Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras) growth in the Gulf of Finland
This work used the longest available weight-at-age (WAA) time series for Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras L.) in the Gulf of Finland to investigate which environmental factors a herring population is affected by. Expand
Spatial variation in growth, condition and maturation reaction norms of the Baltic herring Clupea harengus membras
The geographical differentiation in maturation schedules would potentially translated into divergent changes in recruitment in response to changes in density-dependent growth and, hence, also fishing patterns. Expand
Estimating the mortality rates of guppies in natural populations reveals mortality patterns that provide a potential cause of natural selection, but expand, rather than narrow, the number of possible mechanisms responsible for life‐history evolution in guppie. Expand
Does selective fishing conserve community biodiversity? Predictions from a length-based multispecies model
This study challenges the widely held view that improved fisheries selectivity would always help to maintain marine biodiversity by investigating the effect of length-based multi-species models on biodiversity. Expand
Linking fisheries, trophic interactions and climate: threshold dynamics drive herring Clupea harengus growth in the central Baltic Sea
The management of the central Baltic herring stock should be adaptive and take into consideration the dual response of herring growth to hydro-climatic forces and food-web structure for a sound eco- system approach to fisheries. Expand
Population- and sex-specific divergence in growth patterns between two ninespine stickleback (Pungitius pungitius L) populations
Genetically based population differentiation in key growth-related life-history traits is discovered, but little or no evidence for a role of intrinsic growth rate or asymptotic size in determining the timing of maturation in ninespine stickleback is found. Expand
Fishery-induced selection on an Alpine whitefish: quantifying genetic and environmental effects on individual growth rate
Size‐selective fishing seems to affect substantially the genetics of individual growth in the study population of the Alpine whitefish Coregonus palaea, but there is no evidence for any linear change in reproductive strategies over time. Expand
Ecosystem changes and the effects on capelin (Mallotus villosus), a major forage species
The relative impacts of four factors, commercial exploitation, predation, food availability, and the physical environment, on the changes in capelin biology are discussed in the context of capelin as a single species and in thecontext of the ecosystem. Expand
Food consumption of larval, young and adult herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea
The estimate for annual consumption of zooplankton by clupeids in the Baltic sea is 4 times higher than previous estimates, and simulations also show that a diet shift, from a mix of zoopsids, mysids and amphipods to only zoopLankton, could have a significant effect on fish growth rate. Expand
