Very soon! 🐟 🌊 🎣 🛥 🌎 
Our most recent paper 📑 titled "A reproductive resilience index for pelagic fish in the southern Humboldt Current Large Marine Ecosystem" will be available in open access at Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences


Si importamos pulpos, calamares o sepias, ¿contamina mucho más su transporte que si los pescamos aquí?

The most powerful scientific instrument in existence is the human brain. For this reason many developing countries with very low government budgets for are doing science of the highest quality.

Let us not now allow the "pay-to-publish" model to dilute their precious contributions, erase their views and silence their valuable opinions.

How are fish trade and consumption networks in riverine communities along the Amazonian rivers and the Brazilian coast affected by mercury contamination?

We are now working with a group of Brazilian scientists to answer it. Wait for news.

After 21 years of debate since it was first proposed to end fisheries subsidies, this week the World Trade Organisation (WTO) reached a multilateral agreement to move towards a healthier ocean.

Fisheries 💰 subsidies 🎣 are coming to an end!

¡Que suene el tango! 🎶

In front of the door of my house there is a worker 👷 renovating a façade and he is listening to Carlos Gardel.

What a delight and a beautiful surprise! Now I am at home enjoying tango and milonga.

💰💸 400 billion dollars for a few countries to exploit, and over exploit, several fish stocks across the planet, so that a few people can put species on their plate that are only a luxury and do not serve as a solution to ensure global food security.

Since WTO negotiations on fisheries subsidies began in 2001, more than $400 billion has been wasted on subsidies.

That's just over $52 million a day to subsidise a nonsense.

ECOP! SSC will hold an ECOP mentoring session at SPF on 8 Nov 2022, 6-7:30pm, after the scientific talks. ECOP can connect with cross-disciplinary mentors from diverse geographic regions. RSVP before 8 July, 2022: forms.office.com/Pages/Respons

The latest on impacts, and vulnerability shows that many species are reaching the limits of their ability to adapt to , and those that cannot adapt are at risk of extinction.
However, other species could benefit from mid-latitude tropicalisation.
At we are researching one of these species, which also has a high cultural, culinary, recreational and artisanal fishing value: the dolphinfish (mahi-mahi or llampuga).

Hi, I’m Dr. Andrés Ospina-Álvarez, currently I’m working at Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA) (Mallorca Island – Spain).

My current research line focuses on marine spatial ecology, including transport; dispersal and recruitment of early age stages of marine species; the modelling of species’ habitat; spatial planning approaches promoting populations’ connectivity; and the use of network analysis to address complex ecological problems like seafood traceability.

Seafood traceability is today a utopia. We are still far from being able to know exactly what happens to the seafood we eat from the moment it is caught until it reaches our mouths. Which ports did it go through? Has it lost the cold chain? Where was it packaged or processed? Was it mixed with products of another origin?

Our article on the global cephalopod trade is a first step towards answering some of these questions, but more remain to be answered.

I'm slowly moving to fediverse to end up leaving twitter permanently. Now I'm testing the scholar.social instance.

"The problem of patterns and scales in ecology" should be a must read for any young student entering the field of ecological connectivity or biophysical modelling for the transport and dispersal of eggs, larvae, spores, etc. through ocean currents. doi.org/10.2307/1941447

One of the most obvious consequences of the war in Ukraine in terms of trade and food security has to do with the global grain shortage. But this is not the only effect.

In the field of fisheries and seafood trade, Ukraine was the largest importer of frozen hake between 2016 and 2020 (262 921 tonnes). More than 95% of its imports came from the USA, Canada, Spain and Argentina (250 021 tonnes).

I wonder what will be happening to the global Hake trade in 2022?

En el workshop se definieron los componentes ecológicos, actores sociales, servicios ecosistémicos y presiones del cambio global que describen las interacciones más importantes en las Áreas Marinas Protegidas de Lira y Cíes (Galicia), Cabo de Gata (Andalucía) y Archipiélago de Cabrera (I. Baleares). 🏝️🐟🎣🌊

This year #UN #FAO #GFCM has in hand the first estimate of reference points for management of Mediterranean dolphinfish shared stock.

The paper explaining the multiannual five-fleet generalized depletion model used is available today on #openaccess.
