A krill hotspot in the Antarctica was identified as a spawning area and located in cold water near the continental shelf edge of the South Orkney area, while salp hotspots were located in warmer and deeper waters. These findings are recently reported by Torborg Rustand in her Master thesis
Martine R. Solås reports in her Master thesis that enriched rearing reduced post-release growth of Atlantic salmon fry (Salmo salar). Moreover, predatory brown trout fed selectively on small fry.

Physics, the field of conservation laws, well-studied phenomena and exact equations. And then I now found myself in the situation where I was supposed to do modeling in biology. Biology, a field I had... Read more
