It took longer than expected for our Gyrodactylus to feel at home in our lab. But once the stock “had warmed its feet” I have been grown more and more appreciative about them. Here are some of the reasons why.
Lisa Hansen Simonsen is about to hand in her Master thesis on the link between spring weather and phenology in small birds
Marie Hauso is a high school teacher student interested in parasites and behaviour. She is now starting her Masters project with Adele Mennerat.
Effort regulation could simplify managing mixed fisheries by directing effort towards common species and away from rare ones, thus "automatically" protecting the latter. But how likely is this protection actually to happen?
Bottom trawl is usually considered a relative unselective fishing gear, but Taiwanese coastal trawl fishers show a good ability to change their catch profiles to match market demands
Beatriz Diaz Pauli joined forces with 8th graders from the International School of Bergen and their teacher Lars Haugen Aardal to become reviewers for the Frontiers of Young Minds journal.
Lanternfish stomachs can become an exciting MSc thesis, as Synne Myhre Sunde has shown in the thesis she defended in late December.
On January 11th, Marion Claireaux successfully defended her thesis "Long-term changes in life-history traits of Norwegian spring-spawning herring"
After finishing all my lectures for the autumn semester, I had a chance to visit University of California at Santa Barbara for some peaceful working days, sun, and a little bit of tourism.
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.
A new field study, published in MEPS, shows that deep Norwegian fjords house sub-populations of roundnose grenadiers, with little connections to coastal populations.
A group of scientists from BIO are currently on survey in the South Atlantic Ocean
A new study shows that reproductive investment in cod increased during a period of heavy exploitation, and then stabilized or possibly reversed when the exploitation pressure was greatly reduced. However, this pattern was only found for males.
Mathias Stølen Ugelvik will defend his doctoral thesis later this month.
Aurelien has studied the genetic structure of deep-water grenadiers in Norwegian waters
Anne Marte has studied whether environmental enrichment affect feeding behavior in juvenile salmon.
Not many of us may yet know that EvoFish has a sister group in China – "EvofishOUC"!
