Analysis of coastal cod (Gadus morhua L.) sampled on spawning sites reveals a genetic gradient throughout Norway's coastline Dahle, Geir; Quintela, María; Johansen, Torild; Westgaard, Jon-Ivar; Besnier, Francois; Aglen, Asgeir; Jørstad, Knut Eirik; Glover, Kevin (BioMed Central, 2018-07-09)Background. Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) has formed the basis of many economically significant fisheries in the North Atlantic, and is one of the best studied marine fishes, but a legacy of overexploitation has depleted ...Journal article
Genetic management of mixed-stock fisheries "real-time": The case of the largest remaining cod fishery operating in the Atlantic in 2007-2017 Dahle, Geir; Johansen, Torild; Westgaard, Jon-Ivar; Aglen, Asgeir; Glover, Kevin (Elsevier, 2018-09)Fish stocks represent fundamental units in fisheries management, and their identification, especially in mixed-fisheries, represents one of the primary challenges to sustainable harvest. Here, we describe the first “real-time” ...Journal article
“Real-time” genetic monitoring of a commercial fishery on the doorstep of an MPA reveals unique insights into the interaction between coastal and migratory forms of the Atlantic cod Johansen, Torild; Westgaard, Jon-Ivar; Seliussen, Bjørghild Breistein; Nedreaas, Kjell Harald; Dahle, Geir; Glover, Kevin; Kvalsund, Roger; Aglen, Asgeir (Oxford University Press, 2017-05)With the decline of many of the world’s fisheries, increased regulation, including marine protected areas (MPA), forms an increasingly important role in promoting sustainable resource use. Here, we present a novel “real-time” ...Journal article
