The secret lives of fish revealed by the digital age
'Imagine the clandestine lives of marine fishes,' begins 'Migration Ecology of Marine Fishes,' a new book by Dr. David Secor, one of the most respected voices in marine fish migration studies. Their movements, social interactions, and favorite spots are all obscured beneath the surface. However, an explosion of technological advances in data gathering and analysis has allowed fisheries scientists to observe the secret lives of fish in a whole new way.

Study points to human impact on evolution of freshwater fish
In recreational fishing, the practice of catch-and-release is intended to conserve freshwater populations. The captive is unhooked and tossed back to swim away without any lasting consequences. But a new UConn study says the evolutionary path of a species may be on the line. The study is the first to identify species changes based on the fishing practice. 'We may be permanently changing fish populations over the long term,' researchers say.

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.
