A dearth of basic biological information for wahoo, Acanthocybium solandri, currently hinders the ability of scientists and managers to assess population sustainability and appropriately manage the dramatically increasing global catch. This study examined the gonads of 382 wahoo collected off eastern Australia during 2008–2011 to quantify their reproductive biology in the region. The overall sex ratio of the sample was 3.2:1 (females:males), however this differed significantly among fishing… Expand

Biology and Environmental Preferences of Wahoo, Acanthocybium solandri (Cuvier, 1832), in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO)
TLDR
The updated life history information presented in this work helps to address current data limitations and provides critical information for future assessments of wahoo stocks in the WCPO. Expand
The reproductive potential of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares Bonnaterre, 1788) caught in the eastern part of the Indian Ocean
Knowledge of reproduction biology provides valuable information to better understanding population dynamics, including a population's resilience to fishing. The yellowfin tuna reproductive biology inExpand
Per-recruit stock assessment of wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) in the southwest Pacific Ocean
A stock assessment incorporating sensitivity in biological parameters and potential fishery management strategies for wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) in the southwest Pacific Ocean was undertaken toExpand
Rapid growth of wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) in the Coral Sea, based on length-at-age estimates using annual and daily increments on sagittal otoliths
TLDR
It is suggested that wahoo are one of the fastest growing teleosts and provides growth parameter estimates that may facilitate future stock assessments and guide fisheries management. Expand
Feeding dynamics, consumption rates and daily ration of wahoo Acanthocybium solandri in Indo-Pacific waters.
TLDR
The results from this study suggest A. solandri is an opportunistic predator similar to other pelagic piscivores, worldwide. Expand
Spawning area and season of butterfly kingfish (Gasterochisma melampus), a large scombrid adapted to cooler temperate southern water
TLDR
The south-east Pacific Ocean may be the only (and is at least the major) spawning area of the butterfly kingfish, a Scombridae species distributed in circumpolar temperate waters of the Southern Hemisphere that migrates to the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans to feed and returns to the south-East Pacific Ocean to spawn. Expand
Reproductive biology and estimates of length and age at maturity of longtail tuna (Thunnus tonggol) in Australian waters based on histological assessment
TLDR
The present study provides reliable maturity and fecundity ogives that may improve future assessment of longtail tuna stocks throughout the Indo-Pacific region. Expand
Assessing vulnerability of bycatch species in the tuna purse-seine fisheries of the eastern Pacific Ocean
Abstract Ecological risk assessment (ERA), including Productivity-Susceptibility Analysis (PSA), is becoming increasingly used to assess the relative vulnerability of data-limited non-target speciesExpand
Life history traits and fishery patterns of teleosts caught by the tuna longline fishery in the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans
TLDR
Investment in some key life history traits and the development of quantitative or semi-quantitative approaches (stock assessment and Ecological Risk Assessment) should be priorized as precautionary management measures for these species. Expand
Could a Harvest-Based Citizen Science Program Be an Effective Contribution to Fisheries Research?
We surveyed 105 St. Louis River Estuary (SLRE) ice-anglers near Duluth, MN, USA to quantify their interest in participation in a harvest-based citizen science program. This hypothetical program wouldExpand

Reproductive biology of wahoo, Acanthocybium solandri, from the Atlantic coast of Florida and the Bahamas
TLDR
These samples demonstrated only a single, summer-spawning season, which did not support earlier postulations of spring spawning by wahoo near the Bahamas, and the significant contribution of older, larger females to egg production should be considered in managing this fishery. Expand
Reproductive biology of the commercially and recreationally important cobia Rachycentron canadum in northeastern Australia
TLDR
The reproductive biology of 315 cobia from northeastern Australia was studied for an 18-month period, and provides valuable data for future population assessments of cobia throughout the Indo-Pacific. Expand
Reproductive biology of albacore Thunnus alalunga.
TLDR
Thunnus alalunga exhibited a protracted spawning period from March to September in the waters off eastern Taiwan and the Philippines, and the peak spawning activity occurred in March and April. Expand
Age, growth, and mortality of wahoo, Acanthocybium solandri, from the Atlantic coast of Florida and the Bahamas
TLDR
It appears that the survival rate of wahoo in the western Atlantic Ocean is not different now than in the 1960s, and the largest individuals were female and the sex ratio was significantly female-biased. Expand
Reproductive Dynamics and Potential Annual Fecundity of South Pacific Albacore Tuna (Thunnus alalunga)
TLDR
An extensive set of reproductive parameter estimates provides many of the first quantitative estimates for this population and will substantially improve the quality of biological inputs to the stock assessment for South Pacific albacore. Expand
Reproductive biology and spatiotemporal patterns of spawning in striped marlin Kajikia audax.
TLDR
The multiple aggregation spawning concept as a reproductive mechanism to explain genetic heterogeneity observed in some highly migratory species is introduced and provides a starting point for biological parameters needed for stock assessment and conservation of K. audax. Expand
Stock identification of wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) in the Pacific and Indian Oceans using morphometrics and parasites
TLDR
Morphometric measurements and parasite fauna were significantly different among wahoo from the western Pacific and eastern Pacific Oceans, suggesting multiple discrete phenotypic stocks despite genetic homogeneity. Expand
Rapid growth of wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) in the Coral Sea, based on length-at-age estimates using annual and daily increments on sagittal otoliths
TLDR
It is suggested that wahoo are one of the fastest growing teleosts and provides growth parameter estimates that may facilitate future stock assessments and guide fisheries management. Expand
Reproductive biology of Bigeye Tuna, Thunnus obesus, (Scombridae) in the eastern and central tropical Pacific Ocean
TLDR
Statistically, female and male Bigeye Tuna had no significant reproductive seasonality and males dominated in sizes larger than 171 cm, all specimens of 192 cm or larger were males. Expand
THE SPAWNING FREQUENCY OF SKIPJACK TUNA, KATSUWONUS PELAMIS, FROM THE SOUTH PACIFIC
TLDR
Spawn frequency is one of the missing links in an assessment of the reproduction of skipjack populations, and two methods have been developed for measuring the spawning rate of multi­ ple spawning marine fishes. Expand
