Are whale sharks in trouble?

A recent study at the global scale suggests that there are two distinct populations of whale shark (Indo-Pacific and Atlantic Ocean). Authors show the evidence that populations of sharks aggregating at Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia have been declining in genetic diversity from 2007 to 2012. Catarina SilvaHi!

Not so alike after all: European hake populations might be locally adapted

Recent evidence that European hake populations might be adapted to local conditions (e.g. temperature and salinity at the surface) suggests the need to review current management strategies of their stocks.

Plenty of fish in the sea? Appearances can be deceiving.

Overfishing reduces the ability to adapt in the face of change, even in highly abundant marine fishes. Catarina SilvaHi! I am a PhD candidate at Victoria University of Wellington.
