A comparison of single and multiple stressor protocols to assess acute stress in a coastal shark species, Rhizoprionodon terraenovae.

Fish Physiol Biochem 2015 Oct 31;41(5):1253-60. Epub 2015 May 31.

National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, Mississippi Laboratories, 3209 Frederic Street, Pascagoula, MS, 39567, USA.

Elasmobranch stress responses are traditionally measured in the field by either singly or serially sampling an animal after a physiologically stressful event. Although capture and handling techniques are effective at inducing a stress response, differences in protocols could affect the degree of stress experienced by an individual, making meaningful comparisons between the protocols difficult, if not impossible. This study acutely stressed Atlantic sharpnose sharks, Rhizoprionodon terraenovae, by standardized capture (rod and reel) and handling methods and implemented either a single or serial blood sampling protocol to monitor four indicators of the secondary stress response.

Feeding performance of king Mackerel, Scomberomorus cavalla.

J Exp Zool A Ecol Genet Physiol 2015 Aug 6;323(7):399-413. Epub 2015 Apr 6.

Department of Integrative Biology, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida.

Feeding performance is an organism's ability to capture and handle prey. Although bite force is a commonly used metric of feeding performance, other factors such as bite pressure and strike speed are also likely to affect prey capture. Therefore, this study investigated static bite force, dynamic speeds, and predator and prey forces resulting from ram strikes, as well as bite pressure of the king mackerel, Scomberomorus cavalla, in order to examine their relative contributions to overall feeding performance.

Capture, transport, and husbandry of elephant sharks (Callorhinchus milii) adults, eggs, and hatchlings for research and display.

Zoo Biol 2015 Jan-Feb;34(1):94-8. Epub 2014 Nov 14.

ARMI, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, Australia.

Elephant sharks (Callorhinchus milii) have the slowest evolving genome of all vertebrates and are an interesting model species for evolution research and a prized display animal. However, their deep water habitat, short breeding season, fragility, and susceptibility to stress-induced mortality have made them difficult animals to capture, keep in captivity, and obtain fertilized eggs from. Gravid females were captured by rod and reel from Western Port Bay, Australia and transferred to a 40 000 L closed aquaculture system to lay their eggs before being released. Read More

Seasonal distribution and historic trends in abundance of white sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, in the western North Atlantic Ocean.

PLoS One 2014 11;9(6):e99240. Epub 2014 Jun 11.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, Narragansett, Rhode Island, United States of America; Mote Marine Laboratory, Summerland Key, Florida, United States of America.

Despite recent advances in field research on white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) in several regions around the world, opportunistic capture and sighting records remain the primary source of information on this species in the northwest Atlantic Ocean (NWA). Previous studies using limited datasets have suggested a precipitous decline in the abundance of white sharks from this region, but considerable uncertainty in these studies warrants additional investigation. This study builds upon previously published data combined with recent unpublished records and presents a synthesis of 649 confirmed white shark records from the NWA compiled over a 210-year period (1800-2010), resulting in the largest white shark dataset yet compiled from this region.

Changes in the distribution of atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) in the Gulf of Maine 1979-2005.

PLoS One 2013 19;8(9):e75480. Epub 2013 Sep 19.

School of Marine Sciences, University of Maine, Orono, Maine, United States of America ; Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Portland, Maine, United States of America.

The Gulf of Maine, NW Atlantic Ocean, is a productive, seasonal foraging ground for Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus), but commercial landings of adult size classes were up to 40% below the allocated total allowable catch between 2004 to 2008 for the rod and reel, harpoon, and purse seine categories in the Gulf of Maine. Reduction in Atlantic bluefin tuna catches in the Gulf of Maine could represent a decline in spawning stock biomass, but given wide-ranging, complex migration patterns, and high energetic requirements, an alternative hypothesis is that their dispersal patterns shifted to regions with higher prey abundance or profitability, reducing availability to U.S. Read More

Insights from a novel p53 isoform in zebrafish want to reel us in, but will we take the bait?

Authors:
James J Manfredi

Genes Dev 2009 Feb;23(3):261-4

Department of Oncological Sciences, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York 10029, USA.

The p53 tumor suppressor has been reported to be expressed as multiple isoforms. In this issue of Genes & Development, Chen and colleagues (pp. 278-290) use a zebrafish model to show that one such isoform, Delta113p53, is a target for transcriptional activation by p53 and can, in turn, inhibit the activity of the full-length p53 protein, establishing a novel negative feedback loop centered on the p53 locus itself.

Do scientists and fishermen collect the same size fish? Possible implications for exposure assessment.

Environ Res 2006 May 19;101(1):34-41. Epub 2005 Sep 19.

Division of Life Sciences, Rutgers University, 604 Allison Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854-8082, USA.

Recreational and subsistence fishing plays a major role in the lives of many people, although most Americans obtain their fish from supermarkets or other commercial sources. Fish consumption has generally increased in recent years, largely because of the nutritional benefits. Recent concerns about contaminants in fish have prompted federal and state agencies to analyze fish (especially freshwater fish targeted by recreational anglers) for contaminants, such as mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and to issue fish consumption advisories to help reduce the public health risks, where warranted.
