Unraveling the life cicle of two small gobies: age validation and determination

Poster presented at the 6th International Otolith Symposium (IOS 2018), held in Keelung (Taiwan) from April 15th to 20th, 2018. (Openaire)

Predictable anthropogenic food subsidies, density-dependence and socio-economic factors influence breeding investment in a generalist seabird

Recent European policies on the ban of fishing discards and the closure of open-air landfills are expected to reduce predictable and abundant food resources for generalist seabirds. (Openaire)

Predator arrival elicits differential dispersal, change in age structure and reproductive performance in a prey population

Predators are an important ecological and evolutionary force shaping prey population dynamics. Ecologists have extensively assessed the lethal effects of invasive predators on prey populations. (Openaire)

Colonisation in social species: the importance of breeding experience for dispersal in overcoming information barriers

Studying colonisation is crucial to understand metapopulations, evolutionary ecology and species resilience to global change. (Openaire)

Exploring the effects of discarding using the Atlantis ecosystem model for Icelandic waters

In this study the ecological and economic effects of discarding were investigated using the Atlantis model for Icelandic waters. (Scentia Marina)

"Bycatch and discards survival rate in a small-scale bivalve dredge fishery along the Algarve coast (southern Portugal)"

The present study aimed to quantify the bycatch and discards, estimate damage and mortality, and propose management measures to minimize discards and mortality. (Special Issue Scientia Marina)

A Bayesian model of fisheries discards with flexible structure and priors defined by experts

Here, we present a novel approach consisting of a modular Bayesian model, which can incorporate any relevant explanatory variable, independently of data availability. (Ecological Modelling Elsevier)

Science, Technology, and Society Initiative to Minimize Unwanted Catches in European Fisheries

Paper presented at the EFCA Seminar "Five-year external evaluation", held in Vigo, Spain, on June 20th, 2017 (Openaire)

Science, technology and society initiative to minimise unwanted catches in European fisheries – the MINOUW project

Paper presented at The 1st Regional Conference of the FISHERMAN project, held in Mahajanga (Madagascar), from 10 to 11 September 2015 (Openaire)

To land or not to land : how do stakeholders perceive the zero discard policy in European small-scale fisheries ?

The landing obligation recently adopted by the European Union's (EU) Common Fisheries Policy aims to eradicate discards in EU fisheries. (Openaire)

Combining sale records of landings and fishers knowledge for predicting métiers in a small-scale, multi-gear, multispecies fishery

Stock management should be guided by assessment models that, among others, need to be fed by reliable data of catch and effort. (Openaire)

Reducing discards in trammel net fisheries with simple modifications based on a guarding net and artificial light: contributing to marine biodiversity conservation

Experimental fishing trials with standard (control) and modified trammel nets were conducted to assess the possible reduction of discards. (Scentia Marina)

End-to-end model of Icelandic waters using the Atlantis framework: Exploring system dynamics and model reliability

his paper describes the first end-to-end model for the Icelandic waters using the Atlantis modeling framework. (Fisheries Research)

Effects of different slipping methods on the mortality of sardine, Sardina pilchardus, after purse-seine capture off the Portuguese Southern coast (Algarve)

This work indicates that although delayed mortality after release may be substantial, appropriately modified slipping techniques significantly enhance survival of slipped sardines. (PLOS one)
