New Report Shows Many Depleted Fish Stocks Show Signs of Recovery

Federal efforts to rebuild depleted fish populations have been successful at reducing fishing pressure on many overfished stocks, and fish stocks have generally increased under reduced harvesting, says a new congressionally requested report from the National Research Council. However, outcomes have been mixed across fisheries; fishing pressure is still too high for some fish stocks,

Monitoring the Marine Environment

The British Government’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) reached an impressive milestone recently, acquiring more than 1m hours (2m records) of wave data. Equating to some 114 years’ worth of data, it was collected mostly in areas where intense maritime operations (heavy shipping and fishing traffic, operational wind farms, etc) and harsh

New Report Details the Coastal Change from Hurricane Sandy

Beaches and dunes on Fire Island, New York, lost more than half of their pre-storm volume during Hurricane Sandy, leaving the area more vulnerable to future storms. While the damage and destruction on Fire Island was immediately evident after the storm, a new U.S. Geological Survey study released today is the first to quantify the
