Many once-endangered marine species have reached recovery levels that may warrant them coming off of the endangered species list. This recovery is presenting new challenges however as human communities sometimes struggle to adapt to their sudden return. Read more on EurekAlert!.

Recovering predators create new wildlife management challenges
A new study by scientists from NOAA Fisheries' Northwest Fisheries Science Center and the University of Washington examines recovering predator populations along the West Coast of the United States and in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem, and the conflicts surrounding them. The study was published online June 4 in the journal Conservation Letters.

Habitats contracting as fish and coral flee equator
Many species are migrating toward Earth's poles in response to climate change, and their habitats are shrinking in the process, researchers say.

Few opportunities to change
If you want to live, you need to breathe and muster enough energy to move, find nourishment and reproduce. This basic tenet is just as valid for us human beings as it is for the animals inhabiting our oceans.

Warmer, lower-oxygen oceans will shift marine habitats
Warming temperatures and decreasing levels of dissolved oxygen will act together to create metabolic stress for marine animals. Habitats will shift to places in the ocean where the oxygen supply can meet the animals' increasing future needs.

New study uncovers why some threatened corals swap 'algae' partners
A new research study showed why threatened Caribbean star corals sometimes swap partners to help them recover from bleaching events. The findings are important to understand the fate of coral reefs as ocean waters warm due to climate change.

Ocean Modeling Forum Pacific Herring Summit
Ocean Modeling Forum to bring human element to herring fishery, others
The Ocean Modeling Forum, a collaboration between the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at University of Washington and NOAA Fisheries, is trying something very rare -- bringing together multiple science models and people who care about a particular ocean resource or fishery to decide what's most important for its vitality and the communities it serves. The group will kick off its second project June 8-10 in Richmond, British Columbia, with a summit focusing on the Pacific herring fishery.
