Limited information is available regarding habitat use and host species of the haematophagous feeding stage of the anadromous sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus Linnaeus, 1758, due to the difficulties in capturing feeding lampreys and wounded hosts. The aim of this study is to provide new records of P. marinus feeding on host species and to review the available information in this regard to better know the ecology and distribution of sea lamprey during this stage. Thus, new records of P. marinus… Expand

Densities and biomass of larval sea lamprey populations (Petromyzon marinus Linnaeus, 1758) in north-western Spain and data comparisons with other European regions
TLDR
Results and available data suggest that the largest populations of P. marinus as well as the main fisheries are located throughout the south-western areas of Europe (north-central Portugal, north-western of Spain and west–south-west of France). Expand
The role of local ecological knowledge for the conservation and sustainable fisheries of the sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus Linnaeus, 1758) in the Iberian Peninsula
Abstract Anadromous sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus Linnaeus, 1758) uses many environments in its life cycle, which makes them even more susceptible to any environmental changes. Due to the potentialExpand
Sea Lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) as a Functional Link between Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems
TLDR
This work conducts laboratory and field studies characterizing the elemental composition, decay rates and subsequent water enriching effects of sea lamprey carcasses, and provides quantitative results as to the temporal dynamics of sea Lamprey carcass decomposition and subsequent nutrient liberation. Expand
Management of anadromous lampreys: Common threats, different approaches
TLDR
Key information gaps include aspects of freshwater biology, distribution and abundance of anadromous lampreys, and the need to improve understanding of how to mitigate threats. Expand
Marine biology of the pacific lamprey Entosphenus tridentatus
TLDR
It is hypothesize that recruitment of adult lamprey to spawning populations is influenced by oceanographic regimes through impacts on host abundance, and three marine factors that may be limiting lamprey abundance include predation and fisheries bycatch, host availability, and host contaminant loads. Expand
Ethnozoological knowledge of traditional fishing villages about the anadromous sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) in the Minho river, Portugal
TLDR
Fishers shared a vast informal knowledge of sea lamprey zoology and ecology typical of anadromous species of the Petromyzontidae family, in the central traditional Portuguese communities on the Minho river, which may assist in the adaptive participatory management of these an adromous fish. Expand
Gut Microbiota Associated With Different Sea Lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) Life Stages
TLDR
It is shown that bacterial communities in the SL gut are dramatically different among its life stages, and understanding how these communities change over time within and among SL life stages may shed more light on the role that these gut microbes play in host growth and fitness. Expand
Managing native and non-native sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) through anthropogenic change: A prospective assessment of key threats and uncertainties
Abstract Sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) is a species of conservation concern in their native range of the Atlantic coasts of Europe (Near Threatened to Critically Endangered) and North AmericaExpand
Anisakis infection in allis shad, Alosa alosa (Linnaeus, 1758), and twaite shad, Alosa fallax (Lacépède, 1803), from Western Iberian Peninsula Rivers: zoonotic and ecological implications
TLDR
It is suggested that in the marine environment of the Western Iberian Peninsula, both anadromous shad species act as paratenic hosts for A. pegreffii, thus widening the distribution of the infective nematode larvae from the marine to the freshwater ecosystem. Expand
Exploited anadromous fish in Portugal: Suggested direction for conservation and management
Abstract Sea lamprey ( Petromyzon marinus ) and allis shad ( Alosa alosa ) have been fished for centuries in mainland Portugal during their upstream spawning migration. Here, biological informationExpand

TLDR
An extensive European and North American literature is reviewed to provide a detailed and comparative account of lamprey ecology, particularly those riverine stages most likely to be affected by human activity, and points to those areas in which more information is required to form a basis for decision-making with regard to conservation requirements for these species in Ireland.

Occurrence of the parasitic sea lampreyPetromyzon marinus on western North Atlantic right whales Eubalaena glacialis
TLDR
35 previously unreported records of sea lampreys that were observed while attached to western North Atlantic right whales, Eubalaena glacialis, during the period 1984 – 2002 are discussed. Expand
Downstream migration and hematophagous feeding of newly metamorphosed sea lampreys (Petromyzon marinus Linnaeus, 1758)
TLDR
Results show that downstream migration occurs between October and May with a peak in March, and suggest that part of the postmetamorphic lampreys start the hematophagous feeding in the river, with a special affinity for anadromous species, probably because of their larger size. Expand

Prediction of how host mortality responds to efforts to control sea lampreys (Petromyzon marinus) is central to the integrated management strategy for sea lamprey (IMSL) in the Great Lakes. AExpand
Biology and Physiology of Feeding in Adult Lampreys
Although landlocked sea lampreys (Petromyzon marinus) attack all but a few of the smallest teleosts in the Great Lakes, the large cold-water species have received the most predation. Information onExpand
Sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus: an exception to the rule of homing in anadromous fishes
TLDR
It is suggested that sea lamprey does not home but rather exhibits regional panmixia while using a novel ‘suitable river’ strategy to complete its life cycle. Expand
Life cycle of the sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus: duration of and growth in the marine life stage
TLDR
It is suggested that at least a portion of the sea lamprey population can reach adult size in 1 yr of hematophagous feeding, and a period between completion of metamorphosis and reproduction of 1.5 yr (18 to 20 mo). Expand
Sea Lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) Predation on Freshwater Teleosts
TLDR
None of the species of fish appeared to avoid lamprey attacks, nor did they avoid fish on which lampreys were attached, and the presence of lampreys on a fish did not further the incidence of attack on that fish. Expand

TLDR
This work identifies areas in which key information is missing for the juvenile (parasitic feeding) phase and adult freshwater spawning migrations, and compares and contrast information for anadromous sea and Pacific lampreys. Expand

TLDR
Dorsal attachments by species that inhabit relatively shallow rivers and streams may be a compromise to avoid abrasion against the bottom, and a consequence of dorsal attachments may beA reduced impact on host populations through prolonged attachments to individual hosts and reduced attack rates.
