Similar to round gobies in the Great Lakes, invasive carp in some parts of the U.S. have become the meal of choice for native predators.
Understanding the impacts of carp, many resource departments have instituted carp removal programs to help protect the native ecosystem.
Much like other ecosystems, coral reefs are comprised of complex flora and fauna that contribute to the creation and structure of the reef.
A compilation of research finds that mountain streams aren't as pristine as once believed but biodiversity still persists.
A 2014 study supports an emerging method to improve habitat conditions for salmon more quickly and cheaply than traditional projects.
Pennsylvania's Unassessed Waters Initiative finds trout in overlooked streams with the help of local biologists and Trout Unlimited crews.
While snook are considered ecologically significant and a prized catch, much is still unknown about the species production in the Everglades.
Environmental stressors like invasive aquatic species and algae blooms in the Great Lakes have led Michigan to consider developing new aquaculture programs.
When we say that something smells fishy, we usually don’t trust whatever it is. Now, science has backed up that saying with proof that fish smells actually make people more skeptical.
Fin-clipping efforts in the Great Lakes are just one initiative that has made a difference in tracking native and hatchery-raised salmon.
Dilbit spills can happen anywhere across the country, and the impacts on fish and aquatic systems remain to be fully understood.
After an earthquake in 1964, threespine sticklebacks evolved to meet freshwater habitat needs in a matter of a few decades.
Two studies examine how synthetic pollutants impact fish populations for multiple generations following exposure.
Though reefs may be thought of as a shallow water-exclusive habitat, reefs can be found throughout the ocean at various depths. Deep reefs, or more specifically, twilight reefs, as they have come to be commonly referred to,...
Zebrafish are a popular choice when it comes to health-related research due to their unique regenerative abilities.
For some, hagfish are the embodiment of nightmares—however, for marine researchers, hagfish are an interesting creature to study.
Advancements in research have led to the implementation of Environmental DNA (eDNA) as a tool for assessing fish populations.
Researchers at the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) in Canada tested a new way of tracking dissolved oxygen levels using a new kind of fish tag.
Species names are unique, and creating them is one of the most exciting parts of taxonomic research, despite the process being lesser known.
