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.
West Texas' seemingly inhospitable geography doesn’t mean it can’t support the discovery of a new fish species.
A large part of managing fisheries is keeping angler satisfaction in mind, as they are essential to ensuring the longevity of an environment.
Scientists say that BOFFFFs, which stands for big, old, fat, fertile, female fish, are particularly valuable for long-term fishery health.
Recent data on intersex bass frequencies show that wildlife refuges are negatively impacted by human influence, despite protections.
While asexual reproduction in invertebrate species isn’t unheard of, it isn’t exceptionally common either. Instead, such behaviors are typically attributed to plants or a smaller list of animals, of which some have the capability to reproduce asexually...
Australia’s northwestern region, referred to as the Kimberley, is an ancient and largely under-researched expanse of wilderness in Australia.
In the search to bridge gaps in the fossil record from primitive humans to today, many are quick to forget that humans descended from fish.
Intersex fish are on the rise in the Northeastern U.S. as agricultural runoff may cause male smallmouth and largemouth bass to develop eggs in their testes.
No matter what changes are presented to sticklebacks, the species appears to persist, despite changing water quality and environments.
At MAST@FIU, students can enjoy a blended high school-college experience and early experience in marine biology and environmental science.
Schooling behaviors are linked to unique genetic structures found only in schooling fish, linking the behavior to evolution and not just social benefits.
